Handicrafts Overview for 2006

Focus: Scrapbooking

As a group we are going to work on scrapbooking this year.  This handicraft goes along very well with our study of home & family.  You are welcome to do any kind of scrapbooking that you like.  A recommendation is to create an all-in-one scrapbook.  This would be a scrapbook that contains a record of your family from both parent's childhoods through to marriage and children.  It is a sample of pictures and memories through the years.  A suggestion is to keep this scrapbook in a safe but accessible place just in case you may need to evacuate your home.  You could take it with you and have a complete record.


Focus: Family History

Additionally... this would be a good time to work on your family history.  You could include pedigree and group sheets in your all inclusive scrapbook.

Optionally, you could choose to work on a different or additional handicraft of your choice.  A list of possible handicrafts are: sewing, quilting, crocheting, knitting, calligraphy, cross-stitching, embroidery, hardanger, latch hooking, plastic canvas, drawing/painting, braided rugs, rubber stamping, candlemaking, soapmaking, weaving, photography, cake decorating, floral arranging, macrame, stenciling, doll making, beadwork, and/or quilling.

You will find some book and resource suggestions for all these handicrafts on our Extra Reading/Resource List for Handicrafts as we develop it.
