"So imagine this:
You are going to live on this absolutely amazing island
with stunning surroundings, a white beach, magnificent trees,
waterfalls, no poisonous insect on it (hahaha, so no spiders
or ugly thingies)...it's a real paradise this island. Rich in
food and water as well, so no worries on that front either.
You are allowed to bring only three items from
Now: what would they be and what would you do with them and what
do you imagine you might create????"
Wow... decisions decisions. This is a hard decision for a scrapbooker (well, for any artist, I'm sure!) I am assuming, since this IS a Paradise Island for artists, that batteries DO grow on trees? The 1st item I'll be bringing is my digital camera.
Why? Well, to document my stay there, of course! I plan to make my own paper out of palm leaves so I won't bring any with me. It's not too hard to make paper and if it's an island in paradise then it has plenty of trees and foliage. I can make adhesive out of tree sap or some other plant related goo.
The 2nd item I would bring would be my paper trimmer.
It could be a multi-functional tool so it's a useful one. I don't need my ribbon stash because on my ideal Paradise Island, there would be all sorts of fantastic ribbon plants! (ok folks, so I'm stretching it a bit but, if you're a scrapbooker then you know how terribly DIFFICULT this topic is!!)
I would use plant and flower extracts to create beautiful coloured inks so I'm leaving my ink pads home. And since I'm creating these beautiful inks, I won't need my pens because I'll simply fashion one out of a bird feather. I learned how to do this in grade school. Who knew such a skill would come to use!!
My 3rd item would be my sewing machine.
It has multi-uses and let's face it. I LOVE the stitching look on my scrapbooking layouts!
So there we have it, my 3 "must have" scrapbooking items. It's pretty funny because if I didn't sit down and think about this, I wouldn't have ever thought that I'd bring my sewing machine!
