Dear Fellow Crafters,

Awhile ago, I ran across this term “scrumbling” in a craft magazine. I had no idea what it was but it sounded intriguing. Since I color a lot in adult coloring books and also use markers in my cards, I thought I’d research it. Instead of going to Pinterest (no, it’s not my search engine!) I went to the video. Here is what scrumbling is:



Happy scrumbling (er, crafting),

Word Ghosts and choosing

” And it dawned on me that I might have to choose my inner thought patterns… that I would have to start believing in possibilities that I wouldn’t have allowed before, that I had been closing my creativity down to a very narrow, controllable scale… that things had become too familiar and I might have to disorientate myself.”

Bob Dylan (Chronicles Vol 1, page 71)

Word Ghosts know about Helen Keller

” Trying to write is very much like trying to put a Chinese puzzle together. We have a pattern in mind which we wish to work out in words; but the words will not fit the spaces, or if they do, they will not match the design.”

Helen Keller (The Story of my Life)

Word Ghosts know about patterns

” I have come to believe that we do not walk alone in this life. There are others, fellow sojourners, whose journeys are interwoven with ours in seemingly random patterns, yet, in the end, have been carefully placed to reveal a remarkable tapestry. I believe God is the weaver at that loom.”

Richard Paul Evans
