About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

Everbody loves the comical Disney Pixar character, Tow Mater. And when combined with a personal poem and map, this card was a hit with its recipient.

Several elements make this card project unique. For details, become a Grace Notes for Today follower and you may request the PDF download.

Changing Strategies

Time for a Change


Hello fellow crafters and cardmakers! I have decided to change the way I will be blogging my cards and other projects.

From now on, I will post pictures of my projects and give very few, if any details on how I made them. Instead, I will be providing information sheets to any of my followers who want them. These will be downloadable PDFs.


Why, you ask?  For three reasons:


  1. I want to have more personal connection to my followers, fans and other interested people.
  2. I want to provide value to followers.
  3. Lastly, it takes a lot of time writing and designing blog posts. I am a stickler for detail and I would rather spend that energy preparing PDF downloads for those who really want the information.

I have been blogging since 2009, and it's a tough way to interact with visitors. And I wonder if people really care to know the details. Judging by the very few comments I receive, I would say no. Maybe it's overkill for me to painstakingly make note of all the measurements, cartridges used and descriptions of how I put things together.


What Will Change


So here's how I will save time... mine and yours, as the reader. For the time being, I will continue posting my cards and other projects. I also have all my cards on my Pinterest boards for Grace Notes for Today, and It's All About Christmas. In addition, I have a Facebook page where I post all cards and card-like projects from both blogs. Add to that my Twitter page, which, admittedly, is not always up-to-date.  See below for links to my social media pages.


Perks for Followers


Followers will now get preferential treatment and downloadable goodies. You will also get extra pictures and diagrams that are not displayed on the blogs. And I will feel happier knowing that I can explain in detail all the things I want you to know on any given project. But again, they must be requested.

Anyone who wants details on my cards and projects will need to become a follower. Click the blue button in the right sidebar and fill in your information. Then, leave me a comment under the latest post. You will also need to give me your email address so I can send you the PDF. Be sure to specify which card/project instructions you want.

If you do not want others to see your email address, in the comment section ask me not to publish your comment. And of course, I am always happy to receive comments about anything you like on my blogs, whether or not you want a PDF.

I'm going to try this strategy for awhile and see if it makes a difference in visitor satisfaction and an overall happy experience.

About Me

My Photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
