Happy June...I seem to visit and post less this year. It is not because I am not interested, but because there don't seem to be enough hours in my day to do everything I need and want to do. We have just started a new year and catalog for Stampin'Up. I am still a demonstrator but do not hold events any more. My Etsy shop has spurts of selling with Etsy throwing more crap at us. Etsy has gone through so many changes and is now becoming the new eBay, increasing fees, charging monthly fees, and making it more difficult to make a profit while not increasing our visibility. I am annoyed with all the changes and money spent needlessly by Etsy, which not made it a better selling place. I am not a computer genius, I so not have the time to market an independent website devoted to my items for sale. With that said, bear with me as I try to re-establish communication with all of you who have visited and enjoyed some beautiful designs and also some not so good.
I love making banners, it is a wonderful way to use up the vast amounts of card stock I have accumulated over the years of crafting. But I know most of you like to see stamping and cards. A card using a retired blue card stock, has flowers and leaves water colored with a blender pen and ink. This stamp set is new but very similar to one in years past. I love framing cards this way, adding a sentiment as requested. I am still using the Work of Art stamp set. This is one of the most versatile sets Stampin'Up! has ever made. You can view all the latest items listed in my Etsy shop or on Google+.
I know the weather is not warm everywhere. My son and wife are off to a wedding in Sweden today then on to Norway where it is expected to be rainy and cool, a change from 115 in Arizona where they live. Wishing everyone a beautiful Thursday, thanks for stopping by for a visit.
