Lili of the Valley, Magnolia, Elisabeth Bell and more stamps for sale...and an update.

Long time no see! Hello everyone, I'm not sure how many of you are still here, but I thought I might write a quick update about the state of things in Watermelon Sugar-land. It's been a long time since my last post, I needed a long break to re-evaluate things. Several factors contributed to this hiatus, if you're a reader of my blog you will know I hurt my back which kept me from almost all stamping and coloring activities for a good long while. Once I was healed up and pretty much back to normal health, I couldn't seem to reactivate the 'ole card-making mojo. That's the problem with breaks for me, if I stay away too long, I lose interest completely. 

Of course, the other factor that killed my card-making mojo was me losing my job of over 5 years. I saw it coming for a while, but it still stunned me when it actually happened. I was pretty down for a couple of weeks. Watched a lot of Mad Men on Netflix to keep from losing my mind, LOL!

So since then, I haven't made many cards, the ones I did- I hated, so I moved on to other things. Dabbled in embroidery, felt projects, did some playing with polymer clay again, and then finally pulled out all the old painting supplies and finished my first tole painted project in ages last night. I felt like I was home again. I LOVED painting 10 years ago, some family issues threw me for a loop and I stopped. Trauma really messes with my creativity, let me tell you! But I'm back to it, and I think I will stick with it for a while.

So that's it in a nutshell. I'm still not sure what will become of blogging. I may continue to share some of my painted stuff, or not, I haven't decided yet.

BUT, I have stuff to sell! Boy do I ever....
I will start posting what I have to sell here, namely the stamps, but I think eventually I will start selling other items as well and list those in my Etsy shop. I will always post here first to update all those interested.
