My Cinderella moment has come to an end, I am proud to say that I made it to the TOP 15 in Paper Crafts Gallery Idol! For this green bean, it is a shining moment.
I have had this blog for 6 months and am trying hard to figure things out. I have asked lots of questions and thought about where I want to go next. Since there is no blogger handbook, here is what I have concluded:
1. Make cards
2. Find great challenges, get inspired, and enter...try to win (I am competitive that way)
3. Make some friends, get some followers
4. Comments, love comments. You know what my favorite part of that has been? When I love someones work who is obviously better than me, make a comment on their blog, and THEY say my comment made THEIR day! What??? little ol' me?
5. Listen to Susan Opel and publish, even if your mentors told you that months ago...
I have been missing from my regular, challenge entering posts for that reason. I have been making cards with the hopes of publishing something! I love Paper Crafts Magazine. Have a subscription and as I flip through the pages, I realized I know about 80% of the designers. That is so cool! I am going to try to publish elsewhere too, but PC is my first stop!
On a different note, today is father's day. I made this card for Lance to give to his dad. I gave my dad a mustache one, see post here.
stamps: My Thoughts Exactly Fathers Day Mini and Mustache Mania and liquid pearls to make the dots pop.
If anyone has some adjustments to my 5, let me know. I am open to hearing ideas! And welcome to some new followers. Thank you so much!!!
