Hey guys
Sorry I’ve been mia. Several people emailed me asking if I forgot about the tutorial on the Gina's Designs bracelet. I did not. I have been feeling so gross because of the weather and the way it keeps changing. I'm behind in everything! I did attempt to put the tutorial together last night only to discover that the photos I took are bad. So I will have to retake photo’s of each step. Which means I have to redo each step. Hopefully I can get that done today after physical therapy. That’s it. I just wanted to give an update since a lot of people have asked if I stilled planned to post it.

Tax Return Haul box 2

Tax Return Haul box 2 came today
this one is from The Stamp Simple Ribbon Store

Are You on trend?

Are you on trend?

LOL! Today while I was in Micheals looking at flowers this random woman came up to me and asked me if I was on trend. All I could do was laugh and ask WHAT! What does that even mean? Since when does expressing yourself artistically have anything to do with trends. Why are people so preoccupied with what’s in and what’s out. When I make a card or a altered project I just do what feels good to me. I don’t care about the latest Washi tape, however if I have some and I think it looks good with what I’m doing then sure I‘ll use it. But not because it’s all the rage but because at that moment it appeals to me. Think about it. When you sit down to craft, do you do it for you or someone else. Granted if you are creating a special request  for someone that’s different.( maybe) but if you are crafting for self gratification then why does it matter what trends you use? I still love Prima and flowers while it appears as though the rest paper crafting world does not. You will find a flower or two on just about everything I do, because I like them.  So to answer her question are you on trend. NO, and I probable never will be because I do me and no none else.

Huge Love for Gina and Heather !

OMG! Heather and Gina.
Thanks so much for the thoughtful cards and raks. I really appreciate everything. You guys have no idea how much that meant to me. I have been so depressed because of my surgery and all the limitations that come along with it. Your kind gifts really cheered me up. Once I get my camera charged. I'll post pictures. Thanks again so much.
