I know it has been absolutely eons since I have posted anything on my blog, but due to some very bad health issues and a major loss of my mojo, I just couldn't keep up a blog when I had nothing good to share. Well times are changing, and yes, I still have my health issues, but lately I have found that with support of some very wonderful family and friends, I am making some cards and again. I have been following with the latest craft items, enjoyed countless hours of others cards and creations, envied over new stamps, dies, and inks. I dont have a card to share with you yet, but hope to post one soon!
I first want to Thank a few crafty friends who have inspired me and Im happy to call my friends.
First is Vera Yates http://lingshappyplace.blogspot.com/, who has encouraged and inspired me through thick and thin. Her beautiful creations and upbeat attitude has really pulled me through some bad times.
The second person I would like to Thank is my dear friend Elizabeth Pujalka, the artist/owner of Soft Pencil Studios. http://www.softpencilstudios.com/ Elizabeth has such cute and happy stamps and she always has a kind word of encouragement for me.
Third is Jodie Mackrell, the artist/owner of Bugaboo Stamps http://www.bugaboostamps.com/ You will find many of my cards use Bugaboo Stamps (as well as Soft Pencil Studios) and I still use them all of these years later! Jodie is incredibly creative and her generosity of giving away a weekly digital freebie shows that she really thinks of her fans!
And last but certainly not the least is Curt, from Curt's World http://curtsplayhouse.blogspot.com/ who has shared his gorgeous creations and have given me inspiration to craft again. Curt's Wednesday Evening post and his giant schnauzers have made me smile for quite a while.
I am sure I am forgetting many others who have helped and inspired me along the way and you know I am not intentionally leaving you out, but Thank you to everyone who has helped when the times were really bad, and have inspired me to write this post. There are so many many creative people I have had the pleasure to follow to keep up with the latest trends (such as Kathy Racoosin, Jennifer McGuire, Patricia St. Martin, etc).
As I write more posts here, I want to share with you some new friends and companies that are inspiring me to try new things, and get back to blogging again. I will share again as often as I can, but can not promise it will be daily.
Thank you again my dear friends who use your creative talent to inspire others, share a smile and generally make the crafty part of the world so much nicer!
Love you All !!
