Update and Online Extravaganza!

Monday, November 24, 2014

Hi Everyone,
I'm so sorry I've been missing in action the past few weeks. It's been super busy around here. I've been going to my nephews football games on Friday nights and there's been baby showers, birthday parties, family dinners, and working around the house. The library world has been super busy too. We are working on a huge project to migrate our library system from a private company to an open source ILS (integrated library system) and I'm on the core team. I'm in charge of training not only the staff at my library but all the public libraries in our county. It's a long process and very time consuming. We'll be done with the migration early next year. Needless to say when I get home from work, my brain hurts and I just want to curl up and not think for a few hours.

This weekend we decorated the outside for the holidays, I'll share some pictures next week of our house after I decorate the inside. We also dragged Ethan out to get some snapshots of him for our holiday cards. This is what I finally went with. I can't believe how big he's gotten and if I have to say so myself...he's so handsome.

Now on to some crafty stuff.
I have a video almost ready for you. It's filmed and almost edited. Just need to finish the voiceover, photos and supplies lists. I've got my fingers crossed I can get it posted Wednesday if not sooner.

Two Cards, Two Die Sets {Video}

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

Hi Everyone,
Today's video shows a great way to get more use out of your die sets. If I haven't mentioned before I'm obsessed with stitch dies and really enjoyed coming up with ways to use the dies I have to created more layer options for my cards.
