Believe it or not, I am still amongst the living. Sometimes I feel better and then again sometimes I don't. I have actually been working on goodies for my ETSY shops. More on that in a day or two. I'm photographing stuff now.
I came across a really neat giveaway today while visiting Georgie over at (visit her because she has a neat blog) http://georgie-hornpuddinnpie.blogspot.com/ . On her side bar she had a pic of a cuttlebug. I am soooo far behind the times in paper crafts that I wasn't even sure what a 'cuttlebug' was or is and what it will do. So in my quest to learn more I clicked on the pic and it took me to http://mymindseyecreations.blogspot.com/2012/08/cuttlebug-candy.html . Now this blog seems to mostly be about card making and has frequent postings of card sketches (which I find a really good teaching aid for someone trying to learn how to make really beautiful cards (and tags) without having to spend big $$$$ taking classes on line or in site. Anywhoo she (Kadie) is giving away a cuttlebug.
So I went to several web sites selling the little green machine and did some reading. This device seems to be a neat machine with a variety of dies and embossing thingies to turn out some great embellishments for card making and tag creations. The drawing will be held Oct. 1, 2012 so you need to check it out and register before Sept. 30th. She is also giving away a second prize of a SEW EASY tool, 6x6 papers, ink and other bits and pieces. Looks like a great giveaway at least if you are like me and don't have $$ to spend on this type of equipment for your crafts. If nothing else just visiting her blog is worth the trip for all the beautiful eye candy and inspiration.
I hope all of you are doing well. Please pray for our country and its citizens in these troubled time. Reading the news these days is just plain scary.
May God Bless each and every one of you.
