It’s been 5 years since I posted stamped creations!! I’m back!

Can you believe it? I started designing blogs in 2006.

Then I got too busy with blog designing to actually stamp, photograph and post blog posts with my own creations!! So I stopped posting stamped artwork at my old blog back in 2007.

It has been 5 years since I’ve blogged about my stamped artwork!!

WOW! 5 years.

Guess what I’ll be doing starting on September 1st! I’m going to go back to my roots… blogging about my stamped artwork – something I stopped doing 5 years ago. On September 1st, I’ve decided to have some fun again. Stamping!

I’m going to use this blog to post stamped artwork from now on. My good friend Cindy Coutts is encouraging me to start playing with my stamps again. And well, I want to play with the products I design! Since it has been so long since I actually posted stamped artwork, I asked for some advice and she gave me some great tips as well as recommendations. She recommended I start a YouTube channel, problem is, I don’t like making videos. And I also lack the hardware for it. I have state of the art video editing software, but no actual video camera or anything! And honestly, I don’t really want to mess with video cameras. I have sort of a phobia of them. So I probably won’t go in that direction. lol

Cindy also told me I need to make some matching blog graphics for myself that say “Recipe” and “Instructions” so I can put them in my posts to make them all pretty pretty. She also suggested I do what she does. She uses the Post Template plugin to make her recipe and instructions template for her blog posts. I’ve installed that on many many blogs for other people, but never had a use for it myself… until now. Cindy also sent me a box of non-SU! stamping stuff. She’s cleaning out her house (moving) and making changes in her life and she has gone back to SU!. So as a result, she no longer had use for “contraband” as it is known in the SU! world. So she sent me a box of fabulous stuff to “get me started” making and posting stuff again!

This almost feels like starting over! lol I’m looking forward to spending more time in my studio! This will be ever so fun!

Hi Michelle,
Glad your finding some time to create again! I’m sad you won’t be doing your free sidebar widgets anymore…as I looked forward to them every month, but do understand why. THANKS for doing it in the past & for making our businesses a little easier to run. I’m so glad your enjoying your job and finding a good balance in your life.
Thanks for everything!
