My First Post

Well the first thing you should know is that I have spent all day trying to get this blog up and running, and yes I am still in my pajamas, lol. Never thought about creating one before but I have been so amazed at some of the talented women, and the amazing things they have created that I just had to join in. It all really started with me trying to find something to work on, since I had completed all my major DIY projects so I started watching paper crafts on YouTube, gosh am I behind, You Ladies Rock!!!! And thank you so much for sharing, the passion is definitely there as you proudly describe your latest creation. I have to say that I was really inspired by watching Arlene, butterflykisseswithlove, and to think she has a husband and children, you are totally amazing!!!! Of course I had to go shopping to get some of the products you were using and now it's just time to get busy, can't wait to receive my packages.

My oldest son is currently in Iraq (second deployment) and the one thing he has taught me is "If there is something in this life you want to do, go for and quit just talking about it". It is a wonderful thing when your grown children give you such profound advice. Oh, how I love my children, 2 boys 29 and 24, greatest accomplishments in my life time!!! So here I am thanks for all the inspiration and hopefully one day I will be able to inspire someone if only by spoken words..........

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Darlene. :-) I'm humbled that my work has inspired you in some way. I have 3 little boys. Sounds like you've raised some amazing boys yourself! It's funny how their advice can really hit home. :-) can't wait to see your creations here on your blog.
