Good Morning Everybody!
You know I miss blogging to just blog. Sharing my tall tales and goofy life experiences. Well, I'm going to blog for a second and then show you what we did last night on Ustream....
I guess you get to a point in your life when you just need change. Maybe, it's me going through a midlife crisis! LOL! Actually, I think I may be past midlife, but I wont go there. However, loosing hair, things moving that used to be firmly in place, and aches and pains that never used to be there can make you feel like you need a change!
I may not be talking going out and buying a new convertible, or actually getting that hair transplant as men my age often do when in this life changing mode. (Honesty, I sure have watched those 2:00 a.m. hair restoration infomercials...I think I may have even picked up the phone a time or two, just to lay it back down and think later...later!) However, I sure do want to make my days count for something. Change is weird isn't it. Sometimes it's scary and sometimes it's a bowl full of bacon happiness! But....I know that change is good! I love to run, run and run some more. I love to be busy. Just do. The more things I have the better. However, I need to change this a bit and stop and smell the roses from time to time. Bald is beautiful! Walks at dusk are Amazing! Unfinished projects are OK! Taking the time to breathe....priceless! Change is really pretty cool!
I'm off today enjoying the morning that slipped away magically...but it's OK! LOL! Changing remember! I'm doing things I enjoy today....The first thing was to blog. I had no idea, what, a year and a half ago, that I would love this so much! Through all the misspelled words, and weird use of phrases and sentences...I still love it! Why? Totally because of you guys! I have no idea why you keep coming back, but I am so truly and totally honored! Please allow me to take a second and thank you! Thank you all for following my blog, for coming by when you can and for commenting. I don't think I have said that in awhile. I may not comment back and I really want to change that! Slowing down and taking the time! CHANGE! Once again...Thanks Y'all!
When I get up from this oh so comfy chair, I'm off to the studio to clean it up! I need to clean things out...AGAIN! I guess this will just be an endless duty from here on out.... Next, I wanted to get a few YouTube videos done and then to work on the Father's Day Project Tutorial, water the plants and when it gets a bit cooler, a nice walk...or bicycle ride! CHANGE!
OK, on to crafty news...Last night on Ustream, we worked on a Father's Day Gift Card. When you open the card there is a ribbon pull that when lifted upward exposes the gift card. If you missed the show and want to learn how to make the card please click HERE to go to my Ustream Channel.
The photos below show a not so finished card, but gives you an idea of how it was made....Hope you give it a shot!
Well, off to get busy smelling the roses! Thank you once again for being a truly amazing group of friends! I so appreciate you all! Have an awesome day!
