and so little time…
First of all, I have to tell you that I enjoyed writing my previous post SO MUCH that every time I think about it, I laugh.. Before I hit the “publish” button, I called Nicky (in the wee hours of the night cuz I am always up) and read it to her.. she was peeing in her pants but by the same token (or is it in the same token? whatever) she said “Emily.. I know you, I hear you speaking when I read your blog.. your friends who read your blog and who are close to you know you , hear you and ‘understand’ you.. but aren’t you EMBARRASED to write stuff like that??? I mean you’re so funny but if people don’t know you they will think you are completely nuts!”.. I thought about it for a split second and clicked ‘publish’. Y’know… this IS really who I am! Unfortunately, at times, there is no filter and I wish there was one but really if you ever meet me, you will understand. This blog thang is actually the most therapeutic venue (aside from stamping) I have. I enjoy writing so much and the fact that I am so candid and let everyone know what is going on just makes me feel so liberated.. I go to sleep in peace..LOL.. (although I never sleep-but if I did…).. Ok, so that is topic 1. How many people feel so liberated writing their blogs? I mean I also don’t put any pressure on myself to concoct a technique, to create a fabuloso card etc.. I just like to write. Now I know most people enjoy beautiful cards (as I do), and wonderful techniques (as I SO do) but I just can’t do that.. but that’s what Nicky is for! Hopefully we will come up with some techniques, or ways to use my stamps that will make you all soooo happy.. so stay tuned
subject #2 – you must must must read Ellen Hutson’s blog. Before you go there though, beware.. not only is she a true GEM of a person, but she is so very talented and thorough and most importantly (to me anyway) understands quality. Ellen has a post today about dressing the bellas.. it is such a wonderful tutorial, and her precision, sense of color and of course her use of the Basic Grey Phoebe collection (my personal fave of the moment) will rock your world. I am warning you though.. Ellen has a wonderful store where I have bought many many many wonderful goodies incluting her “create a cut” cutter.. I have not cracked that baby open yet but have heard wonderful things about it.. it cuts scalloped edges! That alone sold me.. and of course.. do you think I bought the cutter solo? NOOOOOOO.. I needed to buy the wheely bag it comes in along with extra blades etc.. I got the DELUXE version. I will try to write about it once I have tried it out but you can read all about it on Ellen’s blog. Right when I saw the smiley face on her blog, I knew I was in love.. A DOLL I tell ya.. Also when you read about her favorite products, items she sells, she is so similar to me.. I would buy anything from her sight unseen because I TRUST her. And that, to me, is the most important thing. I know that if she is selling it, or recommending it, that it has been tried and tested by her and that, my sistahs, is good enough for moi (not to be confused with MWAH!).
I wasn’t so ‘ribbity’ today (see blog post previous to this one).. I did come out with a cute card (I think) and I am introducing my “walkers” stamp.. I thought the image was SOOO DELISH
I wanted to talk about another thing but I think this post is long enough.. YOU STILL AWAKE? So manana we talk about layouts, pressure to perform (AKA RIBBIT)
MWAH to all
