Hello again! It's just me...

Good evening everyone.Again it has been so long between postings. We were going to hire my 17 year old son to come here and post for us, but it never happened. I have to do newsletters for work and have a hard time thinking up things to say there. I have been trying to get my mojo back. I've had a hard time getting started again. Life has been a little hard lately and I have not been in the mood to create. I had to force myself to create some cards for a craft fair we have coming up. Our inventory had dwindled down because I gave about 20 cards to a man in prison. He contacted our woman's group at Church asking for cards for his wife who is going through cancer and his son who is turning 6 this year. Then I sent about 20-25 to a nurse back east who asked for cards through the pink stamper blog. Then the everyday happenings. I made about 20 cards last week. I discovered a cricut Christmas cartridge I hadn't really explored before. I saw some card ideas in the Cardmakers magazine that helped me get some inspiration. We really need more birthday cards. My biggest problem is color coordination and patterned paper I have some much paper but have trouble putting them together. Then when I go online to look for ideas I get lost in other people's creativity. Last night I discovered Smash Books. Youtube is wonderful yet horrible at the same time. Once I get started, I can't stop. Then when I try something out it's just not the same. I couldn't wait to get home from work today so I could try and make one. For a first time, it looks okay. But again it was the paper that held me up. That and I forgot how to use my Bind it All. So of course I go online to look up how to use it the right way and got lost in the idea videos. Really, how hard can this be? hahaha. When I have it, I have it. But when I don't!!!!!!!:(. If I can remember how to load pictures I might get one on here tonight. I remembered!!!! There you go. God bless you and yours.


  1. I can't remember if I said thank you or not :). So thank you very much! Have a great day.

  2. Your cards are beautiful!!!
    I know what you mean, I go online and go from blog to blog wishing I could make cards like they do and wish I had the time to CASE them all! Hugs and I hope things are a lot better now.
