Ongoing Gathering of Ideas and Techniques!

I am excited about learning new things from Laura Denison of  Following The Paper Trail.  I am making an envelope mini that she demonstrates on You Tube and a lightbulb went off in my head! Have you ever had envelopes taht you have stored for awhile and have "sealed" themselves? Well, Florida is humid, and I used to throw them away!  NOT ANYMORE!  Check it out!  Bye for now, back to envelopes!

Wow, am I overwhelmed!

Here is my first attempt at blogging! Well, maybe not the first, but hopefully the first sucessful one! Years ago I wanted to learn about computers when they first became available for home use! I spent more time raising my two lovely daughters and crafting of some sort, oh yeah, and working at a J.O.B. Anything and everything has always interested me "hand-made" and I have tried nearly everything. If you can name it I probably have done it, tried it or still doing it! Just to mention a few, quilting, crocheting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, crewel embroidery, knitting, decorative painting, acrylic, oil, watercolor, scrapbooking, paper-craft, stained glass, pottery, sculpture, carving, doll-making, fabric painting and well I can't think of anymore right now, but, my point being, I love it.  I am better at some than others, and can do some much better than others and of late, I am fasicnated with card-making and mini albums. So, I am spending hours watching, reading, and learning everything I can about this fun and rewarding endevor!  So please stay-tuned my friends.  I am on my way and hope to bring some fun stuff to you and help you meet some interesting people I have through the vast world of the Internet.
