Well I don't know how to begin this post other then it's been quite a while... A lot has happened in my life since then but I will not bore you with all of the details other then I finally had to opportunity to move out west.. It has been a dream of mine for a long time.. I have been here now for 4 months.It really has been the best move for my little family and me. My husband has PSA it's a type form of arthritis that sun acts as a natural auto immune suppressant. Before we left home he was taking Hummara injections and it was making him sick all of the time. I am finally working for my sister's company. I don't know you may have heard of it "Spellbinders Paper Arts". I get to live out my dream of working with my sisters in sunny Az. I am a creative assistant which puts me in a unique situation. I get to use my commercial art background which I am finding very artistically liberating. I have been working as a hairstylist for the past 18 yrs. Shifting gears has come with challenges, But for the most part I love, love , love my new job.. I will get into that a little later thought. This has become quite a novel already.. Be back soon!! Promise:)
My craft room is almost complete. I really get side tracked very easily lol. Have been creating a little but I am going to need a new camera before I can start posting. I lost some of my attachment to it in the move. Only me right!! cant wait to start posting again you girls keep inspiring me every day :)
I have found a new challenge you may be interested in. You have a great chance at winning some prizes. You have to hurry I think it end on Friday at midnight. It is new to me anyway LOL. All you have to do is create your own artist trading card. What is an A.T.C. you say. They are the size of a baseball card (2.5” x 3.5"}, come in many themes and people trade them as though they are trading cards.
How easy is that. It is on the second Tuesday of each month. That just make me smile. It is quick and easy J
