If at first …

Alright, so for those of you who have actually been reading my blog for the past month, you know that I’ve been trying to get a spot on a design team.  You also know that I didn’t get a spot because I’m an idiot and I failed to read the posting correctly.  Went and missed the deadline!  Real jackass, right here .. but oh well, thus is life.  And I have moved on!

Try It Out Tuesday!

I cannot, and will not, guarantee this will be an every Tuesday thing.  I’m still trying to get the hang of blogging about my cards and I really only have so much ‘new stuff’ to work with right now.  But whenever I get something new or feel the creative juices flowing when I find something in my stash I haven’t yet used, you can expect to find something here for ‘Try It Out Tuesday.’  Heck, it may not even always be a card!  I do like doing other things, y’know… Continue reading

Just Roll With It.

When I first started making cards, my favorite way to do them was to hand draw everything.  I didn’t own a whole lot of stamps aside from the few that I’d been given by my Uncle after my Aunt passed away.  You see, she liked making cards and had a pretty good collection of holiday stamps but they were all very religious.  I guess I should thank her for the passion it inspired in me to really start creating more and more cards.  But anyway, I figured I’d share a few of those old cards.  The photo’s are pretty crappy as they’re old, from a phone that had a lousy camera, and I’ve transferred a few from the very first year I had a Facebook.  Enjoy!  Continue reading

Coffee, coffee, coffee! ….. and tea.

Lorelai Gilmore would be proud of that title.  And if you don’t know who that is or why that’s so, you’re really on the wrong blog!  Coffee .. is amazing.  And so is tea!  Tea is highly underrated, if you ask me.  None of that has anything to do with this post, except that the whole theme for this post is coffee and tea!  I might be over caffeinated right now.  Ha!
