I am saddened as I type this.... word has reached me this morning that one of our own crafters, a wonderful, caring, giving, compassionate, creative lady (LynnK1970 on Youtube) has been murdered along with her 18 year daughter and pets.
I can not explain the circumstances - I was told by another Youtuber - and she had this web address: Mylifeofcrime.wordpress.com I also searched for North Bend, WA News and found the same info.
Lynn posted videos all the time on YT and was so loving and caring and just sooo nice. I can not believe something like this happened to her and her daughter (and pets). Her husband shot them and set fire to their home. He is now on the run.
I will keep them all in my prayers - I know one thing: The angels are making pretty flowers and crafting up a storm now... Lynn my friend... I will miss you.
Tonight after meeting Scrubby for dinner - we were in 2 vehicles -afterwards, he took the 2 boys shopping and let me come home alone. We need a new gas grill this year, think that is what he was looking for.
They came home 2 hrs later and he handed me a bag, said "Happy Easter".
I opened the bag and inside was my Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I have been wanting one and haven't wanted to spend the money. (been using a 10 yr old Creative Memories Corner Rounder).
Now all my projects will be soft rounded corners. WAHOOO I love him..... :o)
HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND - ENJOY YOUR 3 DAY WEEKEND IF YOU HAVE ONE.
Good afternoon - here is a card I made for a swap I am in that is called: Stiches. A card with some kind of stitching on it - either the paper, a stamp, actual sewing, with a pen, just something with stitches.
I used a background paper that had a couple different types of stitching, and stamped with stamped resist the flower. Added 3 buttons and a jute bow.
Here is a card I made using the IRIS FOLDING technique. Looks elegant and is really simple to do. I actually used wallpaper for the dress. (Tip: would be a lot easier to use a thinner paper, wallpaper was just too think overall).
