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.

Mid-January Catch-Up

Hi, crafters! I haven't blogged anything since before Christmas so I have some catching up to do. Each January, I feel a kind of let-down settling in after the hustle and bustle of Christmas and all that fun.

The snow that right now is a beautiful pristine blanket in my area of Michigan is making it so bright outside, I find myself excitedly looking forward to February. Is that crazy? The days are getting longer, and the sun seems much brighter.  It's a wonderful time of year to do my crafts. I am busily working on some Valentine cards and hope to post them soon. The problem is, I can't give away the surprises because the recipients of my cards need to see them before the rest of the world. But I will try to come up with some special things for my blog.

So, back to my craft room. I often wonder if I am the ONLY person who has a difficult time narrowing down my options when making cards. Seriously, I have so many great supplies and the ideas in my are jumping all over the place. WHERE to start? That is my dilemma.

If any of you have a similar problem in narrowing down your design ideas, I would love to hear your solutions and suggestions. Meanwhile, I will keep muddling through by trial and error. Happy crafting, everyone!

  1. I found that I was so overwhelmed by this problem that I had almost stopped creating all together. I would only go in the craft room when I absolutely had too - and then would be forced to create something in such a short time line that I could. But... after praying and listening (really listening) I was led to Christian Paper Crafts and decided to start posting and participating in the challenges - since then, it is just seeming to "come together" - using the sketches there and mojo monday limit what you can use - that has helped too... now the creative juices are flowing full force and I am having trouble finding the time to do all I want! Sorry for the short novel on this post - have a blessed day!

For your convenience, cards are listed in the left sidebar in two ways:

I appreciate my followers. So, to say "thank-you" I frequently provide step-by-step instructions on some of my most popular cards.

Yes, there are other places to see my cards: Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and Bloglovin. But THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE where followers can request free PDF instructions for projects. Join the fun!

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!
