Finally Another Post & Videos

Sorry I haven't posted in so long - I don't know where all the time goes, but there never seems to be enough of it. Ive been pretty busy. I went to AnimeNext, (anime convention) last month, where I had a great time & purchased some copic markers. I haven't really had time to play with then that much though. I had a 2 week vacation and I got a lot of household thing accomplished (replaced carpeting, spring cleaning, organizing, yard work, etc.), but no crafting. I even reformatted my hard drive & redid my main computer because it was starting to run slow. I also installed Windows 7 RC on my Laptop - LOVE IT!!(Hope everyone got in on the pre-order for $50) Now I'm back to work and I never feel creative when I come home. I don't feel like doing anything when I get home from work.

Last weekend I went to my local stamping store The Creative Corner where they were having a 5yr anniversary celebration - make & takes, refreshments, & prizes (I won a great Hero Arts stamp) and this weekend I have finally made a couple new videos & I made a card!! I am going to try to keep things a little more simple, I was wasting a lot of time editing my videos, I think that was one of the reasons I stopped making them for a while they just got too complicated & took so much time. I have not even reinstalled any complex video editing software on my computer - so have only very basic editing capabilities right now which is actually so much simpler & faster. I am hoping to do a lot more quick videos about tools, showing techniques & the finished project rather than showing the entire process.

I ordered the Sizzix Big Shot today (pink & black). I have a Cuttlebug which I love but the Big Shot has a few features that I wanted and I got it at a great price. Joanne has the Big Shot for 59.99 + tax & free shipping on orders over $25 until Wed (promotional code EBD209). I plan on doing a video of it when i get it and why I decided to switch.

I think that's it - oh wait I also plan on having some Blog Candy for my 40th Birthday on August 4, don't know what yet so stay tuned.

Cupcake cards are the best!!!!!!!!!!
