A blog to share about Adrenal insufficiency, Addison's Disease, Aspergers Syndrome, Autism, Music, Inspiration, Scrapbooking and other elements viewed through the lens of my life. I'm hoping that others who are traveling this journey may find some commonality, and maybe some information and inspiration.

New Project: Music Wreath
I've been wanting to make a music wreath for a long time to put in my studio. I finally decided it was time. But it has to be fairly easy since I'm not a great paper crafter. I found this pattern:
This fits the bill nicely. The roses are exactly what I was thinking of, but now that I've made a few, I really like them. The pattern is a free download, and all I have to do is print it on my music pages, cut them out, and follow the easy assembly directions.
I'm using old music books that students who have moved have given me - student books that for some reason aren't likely to get used for actually making music by anyone. Anything that is really useable I give away to students.
I'm inking the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain for the petals and Versacolor Evergreen for the leaf edges.
I'll post more when the wreath is actually done. I have a lot of roses to make still, so don't hold your breath!
