Yeah Yeah I know I’m a little late, but what can I say!  Hello everyone, I hope that you are all doing wonderful and are having a great year so far!  I rang in the new year sick and am still not fully recovered!    This post may be a little long as there is lots to tell and some to show. 

When I started this blog I thought, oh this is a wonderful way to stay in touch, get my little (read BIG) opinion out there and “meet” some like minded people.  Well it soon turned into a only crafting blog which is wonderful don’t get me wrong, I am forever grateful for the wonderful stamp companies who have had or have me on their design teams and I would not give them up for anything, but I wanted to do more than stamping on my blog from the get go.  Soooooo there will be some changes coming I hope. 

Recently I found out some life altering news.  Nothing extremely bad just something that will alter the way I live from now on.  So with that news, a little depression, and some reflecting on life came and I have decided to do what I wanted to begin with.  My blog will now become my way to document my day to day life… I am not saying I will post everyday but when I do it will not always be stamping.   Stamping will always be my first love and I am very very grateful to Terra for introducing me umpteen years ago!, but there are so many other things to do also that I want to try them all!  I also want to share recipes, and photos that haven’t been scrapped, I guess basically I want to share myself.  Now you may say why not start a new blog for all of that!   I DID and even I can’t remember to go and update it or check on it so I am certain that not very many others will!!!  LOL

So stay with me and we will get this party started.

I don’t know about any of you, well except for Alison, but I am totally addicted to Pintrest!  You can follow me if you want to !  There is a button on the sidebar!   I found this project the other day and thought well hell I have tons of those.  Being from Louisiana a wreath made from Mardi Gras beads just seems logical, so what did I do, dug out my Mardi Gras box, yes I have one, and sorted through all my goodies and came up with this!  The good news is I had enough purple, green, and gold beads to make it work, the gooderLaughing out loud news is I have enough beads that are not purple, green, or gold to make another!!!  Anyway I hope you enjoy my newly made wreath as much as I am!  I will be back shortly!

Sorry to hear you had some life altering news. While it doesn't sound good, good can still come of it.

Ever since I changed my blog (mentally, in theory at least) from being a craft only, DT projects based endeavor to being whatever the heck I feel like posting, it's been more successful and more importantly, a source of joy instead of stress. I hope you have the same experience I did.

And of course you know I love Pinterest. Some of my friends call me their "Pin Tester" because I usually end up trying things pretty quickly and then they read my blog for the mods. LOL.
