Today my little guy turned 12. i am feeling very thankful that god made me his mommma. he is good-hearted, crazy smart, rule-following, thoughtful, kind, a-friend-to-all-different-types-of-kids, like-his-dad, calm, mellow, quiet kid... and he is mine. so thankful. he had a party today and i love the mix of personalities there - that made me so proud. i work so hard... lose sleep... pray so much... text @janamillen constantly for support when my parenting anxiety kicks in... and hope for so much for him. and the change he can make in this world. happy birthday colin! i have a feeling year 12 will be a great one!! #istillhavethatsweater
Oh my oh my oh my! there are so many crafty sales going on this weekend. big sales! and these big sales are a big deal for the little companies. very kind for them to offer. i pulled together a list of the deals and shared my recommendations. i am off to shop... anyone else? link in profile!
Hi! i just posted a video showing a simple technique of using small images and soft inks to fill in backgrounds. easy peasy! i created a bunch of cards (scroll to see a few of them) using wonderfully whimsical products from @pinkfreshstudio . and these goodies are on sale for 20% off. link in profile!
Forgot to share this sneak peek video here! head to the link in my profile for the full video showing how to do ghost stamping on alcohol ink backgrounds. an oldie but goodie technique from many years ago... from @tim_holtz . i tell ya - this alcohol ink is addictive. #andasafeaddiction 🙌🏻
Ok - stop what you are doing. you must go watch rina’s videos! she is the daughter of @ginakdesigns . she recently starting doing crafty videos and they are so well done and absolutely hilarious. it makes me so happy to see younger generations involved in this safe and happy hobby. and even more happy to see lila as part of one of her videos! please check out her videos and encourage her. we need to keep this industry and hobby strong and younger crafters are the key. 🙌🏻. link in profile! #anyonewhogivesherathumbsdownisjealousofherbeauty
So lately i have been making cards faster than i am sending them out. ack! i need to get these in the mail. anyone want one? if so, just leave a comment here and i will pick a few people. (once i pick you i will dm you for your address. if you know of someone who can use a pick-me-up, i can send it to them instead.) who doesn’t love happy mail?! 💌
