Last year I didn’t get the chance to make Independence day cards. We were taking care of three of our nephews and that was taking up the majority of my attention, this year I am starting before school is out (just barely) and we are not doing as much child care. read more
When I was in college this could have been one of my mottos. Friends knew that they could always stop by and talk and I would offer tea. It’s amazing what a cup of tea can make better. read more
I took awhile to make this weeks challenge card because I just couldn’t decide on what set I wanted to use with this sketch! What a nice problem to have. read more
I just love this little fairy! She even got me to break out one of those coveted pieces of paper that I hate to cut into. Ok, I have come to the realization that the paper is so much better if it actually gets used on cards than if it gets hoarded in my paper boxes for that future ‘perfect’ card. It is similar to the cleaning method of reminding myself that ‘Things aren’t memories, memories are memories.’, so if I am holding on to something just because it reminds me of something is silly.
A lot of times I am working on what to write here while I am making my card. Sometimes, I get here and don’t remember a single thing I was going to write. Other times I get here and realize I haven’t thought of anything to write. Yesterday as I was trying to fall asleep I realized that I was going to write something different about the tags I had made. Today my mind is completely blank, I was thinking way too much about tiny flaws in my painting.
