  • Jan 1: Deep thoughts on Facebook: "People like to use New Year's Day as a "clean slate" or a "new beginning" but in reality every second of every day is a new lifetime, one you have never lived before, so if you are ready to make a change do it. You are the master of your fate. Use every new moment to be who and what you want to be."

Not forgotten

Hello followers! (If there are any of you left!) I know I rarely post here, but I haven't forgotten you all. I have not stamped or paper crafted (is that a word?) a Thing in months!!! I have been busy snapping away with my camera trying to become a real life photographer. If you would like to check out my photos please visit my Photo Blog, I would love to have you follow and/or comment on my new art! :)

On a personal note my life has been full of job stress and medical quandary. I posted Years ago asking if anyone had any ideas, since then my doctors have come up with a Possibility, but no actual diagnosis. I am currently in testing to see if we can prove or disprove that it is Hereditary Angioedema Type III.

Besides photography I am still dabbling a bit in the glass pendents I posted awhile back. A few of you asked for instructions and supplies...they are Super simple and just require scrapbook paper scraps, Diamond Glaze or similar glue and the glass tiles/bales from THIS awesome site. If you don't want to make them yourself I have quite a few available in my Etsy Shop!! :)

I will try to come back and post more often!!! I miss my many bloggy friends!
