I can’t believe my last post was December 21st! I have been away for too long and my dear blog seems like a stranger to me. I took some time off from blogging and making cards to enjoy the holidays and to recuperate from all the Christmas cards I made by hand. I had previously made a batch of Thanksgiving cards as well, so those two months of holiday deadlines took a toll. I think I got burned out. Now I’m anxious to use the Christmas goodies my husband got me for Christmas. I received five Cricut cartridges, chalk pastels, inks, paper pads, a Martha Stewart scoring board, Fiskars hole punchers (1/8 and 1/16), and some organizational items such as tool boxes and a storage tote for small craft items.
The Cricut cartridges I received are:
- Just Because Cards
- Mother’s Day Bouquet
- Potpourri Basket
- Straight From the Next
I have explored some of these cartridges using Design Studio but I haven’t made anything yet so I don’t have a project to share in this post. I think the first cartridge I’m going to use is “Straight from the Nest” because it has some adorable images. I’m ready to start crafting again. I have missed it but if your heart “ain’t” in it, it’s just not gonna happen until you’re in the right mood.
So, I guess this post can serve as an update to let my followers and visitors know that I am still here, alive and well. I was just on hiatus :). I hope to have a new card to share with you soon.
Thanks for your patience!
