I – like many of you – have been sick. I am still catching up and have several videos that will be coming soon. Just wanted to share a few updates in the meantime.
FOR SALE & WINNERS
Thanks for all your interest in the craft boxes I have for sale and for supporting the Kind Campaign. I will pick the “winners” soon. Just gotta get to feeling better so I can take all those heavy boxes to the post office. Stay tuned! I will email each of the “winners” – I promise.
Also, I have announced and mailed all the prizes for recent giveaways. (Remember – you can always check out the winners HERE, but I do email them so you would know if you won.) If you won and don’t get your prize, PLEASE email me!
NEW PRODUCT WARNING
Boy – there is some good shopping to be done! Check these out:
My Favorite Things – MFT just released their newest products. I have a video coming soon, but you can check out the great goodies HERE. I am very impressed – lovin’ all the hearts.
Memory Box – Memory Box makes my favorite dies – so intricate and unique. Check out the new ones HERE. And – again – stay tuned for a video.
Back when I scrapbooked, I was a contributor to a scrapbook magazine and I loved it. I think magazines are an important part of our industry and have missed being able to be a part of the industry in this way. So I was thrilled when the kind folks at Scrapbook & Cards Today asked if I would be willing to contribute to their magazine… with a technique-based card article. Ummmmm… YES! I am all about the teaching/learning… not just trying to make pretty things. I am also excited to work with a few people I worked with years ago…
I will share more about the magazine in the near future.
I am off to have some honey to help this sore throat. Take care!
Just stopping by to wish you all a magical, happy, blessed, uplifting, productive and crafty-filled New Year! I greatly appreciate that you all take time out your busy days to stop by and visit me in my little world here. It means a lot to me and I promise to try my best to inspire you in return.
I also wanted to let you know about a few fun things today.
I will soon be posting information on how to buy a box of crafty goodies from my recent craft room purge. I have several! No worries – it will NOT be first-come-first-serve and I WILL be shipping international. I promise I will have all the details soon! If you want to be sure not to miss it, be sure to “sign up for my newsletter” over their on my sidebar.
I have always had a problem with many of my emails going into my spam/junk folder that we not intended to be there. In fact, yesterday I discovered lots of emails from readers from months ago. I greatly apologize but I think we figured out how to prevent that from happening again. If you had a question you emailed me that I didn’t respond to, please feel free to send again and hopefully I will catch it this time. In a couple months I will have a new FAQ page, etc. that will help you, also. Stay tuned!
Looking for a good show to binge watch? My brother and I have been watching Orphan Black over the past few weeks and really like it. Very different, and the lead actress is really talented.
I hope you all had a great week celebrating whatever goodness your family celebrates… that it was filled with happy times, kindness, tasty treats, and crafty time. If you are a fellow Christian, I think you might like these videos: Cloverton Hallelujah Christmas, I Heard the Bells, and You’re Here. (Yes, Christmas is over, but the miracle isn’t!)
OK… off to spend some more time with these great kiddos…
I am very excited for my friend, Ellen Hutson. She recently launched her new website and it is fabulous! She worked hard to make shopping easy for you, and linking easy for bloggers. I hope you will go and check it out! She has some awesome new shipping rates, too.
I thought I would give you a look at what I have in my shopping cart. Some good stuff! Oh – and that vellum from Ellen? I don’t know how I missed it. But it is heavy (43lb) and great quality. Had to order more!
To celebrate Ellen Hutson and how awesome she is, I am giving away a $100 gift certificate to her store! (This is sponsored by me. ‘Tis the season, after all!) For your chance, leave a comment here telling me what you like best about the new Ellen Hutson site by 11:59pmEST on 12/27/14. (Winners will be posted on my “Winners page” after the giveaway closes.)
Just wanted to give you a heads up that today I am a guest over on the blog of my dear friend Kristina Werner. She is one of my favoritest (yes – I made up a word in her honor) people in the whole world… so I am honored to be there.
Welcome! Today’s video shows how to create glittered die-cuts and a fun glittered halo technique. [All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. To watch the video …
