The Rules

I've never really been a fan of rules. No, I'm not an anarchist; just a girl who thinks common sense is usually a lot more valuable than a list of do's and don'ts. But sometimes rules can be a good reminder of things we take for granted.

I've had the Maya Road Dress Form chipboard on my shelf for a while and couldn't decide what to do with it. A few weeks ago, as I was playing around in my craft room, I started thinking about some of the "rules" that I should adopt as a crafty girl -- a few basic principles that I'll always live by.

It soon evolved into my "Rules for a Crafty Life."




Appropriately enough, one of my rules is to "Break the Rules"



I made the spiral flowers out of an old sewing pattern. The tissue paper twists up beautifully.



Paper and embellishments are from the Pebbles Treehouse collection.




Thanks for stopping by!
