A New Blogging Plan, A Video, and Sneaks...


I posed a question recently on Instagram…


“Do You Still Read Blogs?”

I had a myriad of interesting responses, but the largest consensus was that NO, people are not reading blogs. It seems Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube have taken precedence for the preferred method of creative inspiration.

I can’t say that I disagree! The amount of creative blogs that I read has certainly dwindled over the last couple of years. Why? Well, I want to see the work of creative people that I admire. More often than not, that work is now available faster via Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Now, that is not always the case. And when it is not, those are the blogs that I still read!

Now a couple people brought up the interesting point that if they see something on Instagram, they are not able to easily pin it to Pinterest. Ah HA! Good point indeed!

So, why am I babbling on and on about this?

Well… it’s time for a bit of a revamp/rethink of the blog of your’s truly!






For the most part, I am now moving towards ONCE A WEEK posting. Monday, to be specific. My weekly post will include a recap of the prior week’s activities on my other various forms of sharing around the inter-webs… Instagram, YouTube, etc…

I will also include various ramblings of my creative ponderings and such.

Now, will I sometimes post more often? Of course! I am always about being flexible.

SO, without further adieu… let’s get on to this week’s post, shall we?

First up, I have a video to share with you that posted while I was enjoying some unplugged time…











And here is what I have been up to in the studio…






Did you see some Cocoa Daisy sneaks in there?

Kits reveal this Saturday night! Hope to see you there…

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon!

Cocoa Daisy - April 2016!

Hello, hello! All of the goodies in the April Cocoa Daisy Kits were so hot off the presses, I just recently had the chance to work with them. So, what did I make?

Take a look...

First up, a soft and dreamy card using one of the gorgeous exclusive stamps...
Next up, turning the negatives from a cut file to use!

And, I even had a video for this one...

Here, I am putting the positive shapes from the aforementioned cut files to use...

For this one, I am playing along with the April sketch challenge over on our Forums...

And last, but certainly not least... creating a simple page to document a very special moment...

Thanks for stopping by!
See you soon!
