I thought I'd share a couple of projects I did with ADORNit Carolee's Creations "Capri" line. It's a Gorgeous line!
I love this photo so much. I took it when mom and I were in AZ visiting my sister. It's three generations. Mom, my sister Donna and her daughter Rhonda.
letter press shapes fun?
Yesterday on Facebook, I saw a general post that was talking about that people like and don't like about craft blogs. It was titled something like
"I loose interest in your paper crafts blog when".
To tell you the truth by the time I was finished reading it, I was kind of irritated. If you've been coming here for long, you know I don't get on the soap box often, I dont talk about politics or religion, or voice my option about many things...but this one got my attention.
I know constructive criticism is good, and it's good to know what people like to see and read.. but...blogs are FREE. No one forces anyone to go to them. Alot of time and work go into blogging. People are SHARING!
I have been blogging for over 5 years, have put many many hours into it sharing my life, my family, ups and downs, ideas, tutorials, my favorite manufactures products, ect ect. Which is what most who blog do. It's a labor of love... a place to share, connect with others who share your passion for arts and crafts, make new friends,... and if you work for manufactures... maybe a job. I know many of you blog and share of yourself on a regular basis also. Kudos to you! Thankyou for taking time to share your time and your talent! I am inspired by so many of you!
After reading the comments I almost had to laugh because if they are true.. I should probably throw in the towel and not blog. lol
Here are just a few I took note of
1.When you start discussing personal/family issues, trips, etc., instead of focusing on your crafts
2. variety, I hate when they show to many like projects .. I like variety. ( again.. free)
3. music playing. hands down, You can't browse sites with music while you're at work! (key words here "at work" )
4.When it takes so long to read and watch the project. I have limited craft minutes and I just want to create, not stare at the computer. ( don't we all:)
5. when you use your blog as platform to tell about your life story! Who cares!! I want to see the project ( lol)
6. contests. I gave up on entering them because most of the time it is too tine consuming to enter and to know you don't have a snowballs chance in winning. (a free chance is still a chance you didn't have before right?)
I kept thinking ..well,there are a couple others that would be fitting for my blog ...
7. "she constantly rambles and needs to watch her spelling and punctuation" lol8. too many dog pictures! hahahahahah
** So in defense of bloggers everywhere I hope they remember....
You don't get charged to go to blogs...
these people share their ideas for free. \
Okay:) nuff said. lol
THANK YOU to those of you who have stuck by my side all this time:) I'm so thankful for the friends I have met here! lol .....And... I'll probably continue to blog just as I always have .. so......
Now ..on to share about my family. lol I was totally phased by that , can you tell. lol
Yesterday Jarad and Kate stopped out for a visit. All the brown dogs played together :) Funny how with just one picture you can get the idea of each dogs personality. Cloey could care less, Riley wants to play with Molly... and Molly is highly irritated with her playful ways. lol
Riley girl. Ready to go to the cabin.
Kate's Sunflowers she grew from the seeds I gave her look so beautiful!
Off to finish going threw the the things in the garage that will go on the flea market. Probably should have done that early this morning when it was much cooler. hmmm
Didn't think that one through did I.
Thanks for coming by!
