Scrapbook Process Video: Make It Myself


I know you can really set yourself up for disappointment if you have too many expectations for fabric choices.  That didn't stop me from having a long list of things I wanted in fabric to make my dining room draperies.  Soon I was culling my list of expectations. Eventually though I was settling and I didn't want to settle.

So I decided to use my sewing machine and embroider plain fabric to get the look I wanted. That is what this layout is all about.  

Here is the process video:


Since I still had out supplies from last week's 2 page layout, this one went really quick.  

Thanks for watching!

Two Page Layout - Before and After

In 2020, we did what a lot of people did. We stayed home and redecorated.

This 2 page layout covers two of my favorite things that came out of updating the finishes in the main living areas of our home.  I love the new stair rail paint and the carpeted runner.  I don't normally go in for that many animal prints but this chetah carpet was the perfect gray neutral. It wasn't as dull as just plain gray carpet would be and added a fun element to our living area.

Every morning and evening I get to see the new vanity in my bathroom against the dark green walls. Taking down that wallpaper was a bear but I'm so glad I and the painter perservered.  

I am filming in a different room.  It doesn't have air conditioning.  Most of this was recorded without the fan but the last segment I think I left the fan on by mistake.  Sorry about that.  If you have any feedback on the content or the filming I would appreciate it.  

Here's the process video:
