Finally updated

I finally updated my gallery.

Just a few of the things I've been working on. Thanks to a great Yahoo group I found and some new friends - I found my passion for the hobby again AND some of my mojo.

I'm using the Card Kit June created for Valentines Day to make my own cards. I altered her designs a little. Some I kept the same. I'm going to stick these in my husbands lunch on occasion just because.

Been addicted to Martha Stewart lately and I found all kinds of templates to download from her site. Also loving her punches. I've added several of her border punches and shapes punches as well as some Fiskars border punches to my collection.

Can't wait til I get my shipment of the new Fiskars border punches for the store. I've had my eye on a few of them.

I used to scrap all the time. Now its a job. Not a hobby. A Job.

I took a break. Instead of forcing myself to create, which is never good, I took a break.

I worked on the business a little, went to CHA, hockey games, played with my son - anything except trying to create.

And now I think I'm ready to create again. Its funny how having this business has killed some of the passion I have for this hobby.

But, after talking to some friends and joining a local group, I think I'm ready to get back into it.

I have my bags packed and sketches kitted. I'm ready.
