This has been a crazy year for me and my family. I started a new job in March, and that alone can be quite stressful...meeting new people, learning a new job and wondering if I will be a good fit. To make a long story short, it was one of the best moves I made, but unfortunately my creative streak fizzled out along the way. I am happy to say that I am getting my groove back, and looking forward to getting my groove on again.
Since we had a long holiday weekend, I decided to begin the long process of purging some of the excess in the craft room. It was quite a mess, and although it can be hard to part with things, I have managed to get three fairly good sized boxes of "stuff" ready for a garage sale in a few weeks. And I managed to get my video set-up arranged, so I can start doing You Tube tutorials again. As a matter of fact, I got one done today, and although the video itself only took about 12 minutes to shoot, it has taken me the better part of the afternoon to figure out how to edit and upload it. There were quite a few swear words flying, me stomping out of the room and finally resorting to asking my son to help me out...what can I say? In my defense, it has been a while since I did this sort of thing, and I'm using a different computer (and software) since the last time. But here it is!
