I am dearly loving the My Minds Eye In bloom Collection. It is instantly going on my wish list!!! The black and white stripes with the bold flower design is just so elegant and fun. I can't wait to get paid to buy it. I am fully aware that I am a little crazy over the My Minds Eye brand, but I really can't help myself when they make paper this cute. I mean SERIOUSLY, gold washi tape is going to look amazing with this collection. Add a few die cuts, a little upholstery thread clusters, some sequins and the card pretty much make themselves.
I miss my blog and my youtube channel so much. I looked at it the other day and realized that it has been almost two years since I’ve touched it, and that makes me so sad. There have been a ton of reasons why and when I looked at my last entry I realized that was the very day that I had to start applying for a night job. I always had a part time morning job, but then I would supplement that job with a few side jobs and that would still give me enough freedom to work on all of my creative endeavors. 2016 was probably the worst year I had had in a long time. And both of those jobs let me go a week apart. Then my Ebay and Etsy stores seemed to be getting very little traffic after the sites reconfigured their SEO. Also, my youtube channel hadn’t really taken off so I had to make the very difficult decision. I needed to get a second job at night. This job I knew would be very stressful and difficult for an introvert like myself, and make me so tired that I would probably have very little time for anything else. But I figured it would only be for six months or maybe a year then something else would come along. Or the youtube thing would make a little money so I could cut back on hours. But now I’m looking at almost two years later. Youtube has restructured their partner program so earning with them seems impossible. I can’t possibly pay all my bills without both of these jobs, and I’m completely frustrated that I am constantly too tired to create anything. I’m going to try to restructure a few things so that I will have time for making things again. I really can’t live without creating so I’m going to give it my best shot to carve out some me time in my craftroom. I’m so happy to be back, I’ve missed this part of me so much!
So excited!!!! Some of the scrapbook paper companies are releasing images for their Fall lines. Really loving this Echo Park paper "Fall is in the Air"
Just putting a little pink and gold card together. That's all :)
I just love how this one turned out.
My Poor sister just had a ton of work done at the Dentist.
Here is the card I sent her for moral support.
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. This is my space where I can showcase my obsession with paper crafting, and a few products I've cooked up along the way. Thank you so much for stopping by.
