Something really surprised me today! I visited the Paper Crafts blog and saw that Kerri Miller did a post with some of my cards! Thank you so much, Kerri, for the kind things you wrote -- it really was a big, happy surprise! And the shout-out to Humble? Made me even happier!! :D As Kerri mentioned, he really is the apple of my eye. :o)
Kerri mentioned the word "effortless", which I take as a huge compliment that I do NOT deserve. I repeat: NOT deserve! To be totally honest, it takes me a lot of effort just to come up with an idea and craft each project. I mean A LOT. :D I move stuff around/change my mind a hundred times and constantly say to myself, "Does that look weird?! That looks weird, right? I can't even tell!" Sometimes I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. No kidding. But that doesn't keep crafting from being some serious fun!
Here is one of the cards that Kerri shared in her post:
I love office-themed stuff! I actually submitted this card to several different Paper Crafts calls before it was picked, so the lesson here is, don't give up! :D This card caught a lucky break in the June 2014 issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking!
Thanks again, Kerri, and thank you to the folks who left some kind words on Kerri's post -- it really means a lot to me!
