A Little note from Nana

Hi everyone, welcome to Maddie & Nana's Place. This blog is for Maddie. She has been scrapbooking for almost a year. She wanted her own blog so that she could enter challenges just like her Nana. She is learning to do everything crafty by herself. Maddie has her own ideas, her own "stuff" including my old cuttlebug. My daughter has been scrapbooking for years and now her oldest loves it too. She wants to do her own computer input so please be patient. Nana spoils her and she has been playing on our PC for a while. She loves YouTube and only needs a little help with spelling. At least she will allow me to help, even if it's only to tell her how to do it. She always wants to do it herself. She mastered my ATG gun in no time..lol We hope to have fun together.

  43. I use to crtaft with my 6 kids. We made most of our gifts for people. Most of them still make cards or other crafts. It is so much fun to see what they do. They are all grown up now with kids of their own and say they are glad I showed them how to make things from the heart.

    You did such a great job on these!
    I love the dog paper, so cute!
    I am a Mom of four grown children and both of my Daughters loved scrapbooking with me and now my Granddaughter (she's only 3!) is learning to craft with GiGi (that's what she calls me!).
    She loves to help me with my Cricut projects especially! She also loves to stamp and color and we make cards for her Mommy & Daddy on all the special occasions!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  57. Cute projects Maddie! I love your pull out tag on the album :) I have 3 children and they are all crafty - all teenagers and I could not get them to sit still long enough to hop with me. I love to craft with kids because I think it is one of the best things you can do for a child - teach them something that they can do that gives them joy! And also because I learn so much from working with children - they have such a different perspective! So glad you joined in on this hop - this has been really fun :)
