Where has the time gone?

Hi guys.

     No, I did not fall off the face of the earth.  lol....  I can not believe that it is almost Christmas.  I also did not realize that I had not put up a post to share with you all since the beginning of this month.  So sorry.  :O(...  Bad Blogger.
     I have however been super busy making cards for Christmas as well as getting them ready to sell in a little shop here in our town.
     That has been very exciting for me and it has almost made me realize just how much goes into put together a card and packaging it for sale.  I am a perfectionist, so of course it all have to look as close to professional as I can get it.  lol... At any rate I really am enjoying the whole experience, and I am very happy to report that they are selling!  (Yes, I was worried about that.)  So much so that it took me over a month to make the decision to do this. lol..
     While I was in the middle of all the card making I also decided that I would really love to start making more videos on YouTube than I ever have.  I had at one point loaded them on my blog and on YouTube, but I didn't like the way it made my blog react, so I have just been posting them on my YouTube channel. (Gobeagirl)  Yes, I am really inventive when it comes to my channel names.
     So, I really wanted to share all of what has been going on.  You can check out my channel and please stay tuned here and on my YouTube as I have a big announcement to share just as soon as I get the go ahead.  I am super excited and I can not wait until I can share!!!
     In the meantime I wanted to put up some pictures of just a few cards I made this last weekend from some really cute AC paper packs that I was able to pick up from our new Joann Fabrics for only $0.50 a pack.   I sure that you have already seen the paper packs.  As you will be able to see all the cards have the same basic design layout, but made out of different pattern papers. I just had so much fun making these all!  I ended up until 3am wanting to make even more with different color combos. :O)  Yes, it was a very crafty night indeed.  I hope you enjoy them all.   If your still reading this I appreciate it as I really wanted you to see them and enjoy them as much as I do.
     I am hoping to have some more time to share before Christmas gets here, but just in case I don't let me wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.
Talk at you later.

Cyber MONDAY....

   Hello guys.
       I bet you think I'm going to be telling you about all the wonderful things I was able to pick up on Cyber Monday.  lol...  NOPE!!!
     In stead I am going to just complain for a moment about the fact that no matter what I did yesterday evening I could not get my computer to let me log into my blog.  I'm really not sure as to what the problem was, but for now I'm just going to blame the whole thing on CYBER MONDAY......imagine a long drawn out voice  lol,..
    Anyway, moving on.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Thanksgiving.  I had to work Friday and even though our computers and our registers did not work (we were writing out receipts and calculating tax when we needed to)  it was a pretty good day.  I then had a wonderful Saturday and made a few cards that I was putting together to sell in the 'Made in Moses Lake' store. I had a lot of fun making them as I was just on a creative roll and I didn't even write down one supply.  :O)  It was kind of fun not to worry about any of that for once.  hehe....  I did however  take a few pictures to share with you. This card is a simple Christmas card that I had a great time just playing around with.
    As you can tell I used an embossing folder and Washi tape on this one.  I also used a Spellbinders Ornament die to put it all together.
     Well, I am off to make a couple cards that I have an order for, so I will talk at you later.  I wish you all a wonderful week.

I'm not sure why the ribbon looks so odd in the pictures. In person it  looks much more like the red
of the Washi tape.
