As we all know during COVID our lives changed.  The after effects still linger both physically and emotionally for many.  The Bible says 'ALL things work for the good for those who love the Lord'... many times we can't see this in the midst of our season but if you look back you might see that it's true.  

Today I hit my first milestone on YouTube!  YAY!! But this never would have happened if COVID hadn't made us all stay home!  I was forced to step OUT of my comfort zone... and I'm so glad I did!

Here are a couple of my most viewed tutorials... the first one is TWO parts... it was one of my first and I didn't know to put my phone in AIRPLANE MODE!!  LOL... So be sure to look for part TWO!

My workshops are not only fun and creative... they are a release... a fellowship where we all 'get away' for a bit from the hustle and bustle of 'real' life.  I didn't want to take that away from my club members.. so I did the UNTHINKABLE!!  I began to create VIDEOS on YouTube... so they could use the kits I 'porch-dropped' and we could still create our monthly workshop projects.  We also met on Zoom but for those who could not make it, I created the tutorials on YouTube.

WHO KNEW???  I had NO idea that anyone else would actually watch my tutorials... and now look.. 1000 SUBSCRIBERS!!

Sometimes we have to look back and see how something good actually came out of a bad time... no this isn't life changing... but for me... it's pretty neat.
 'Joy ALWAYS comes in the morning'... so if you are one of my subscribers... THANK YOU... if you're not.. take a hop over and take a look!


This little LIGHT of MINE!

A couple of years ago, I posted a Light Up Card using the Stampin' Up! stamp set Campology. Then 'Lighting the Way' bundle came along.. and TODAY... I created


as WOW as my LIGHT UP Campology Card was, there were issues with keeping the connection firm with the diodes... BUT as soon as I saw the Lighting the Way bundle I knew I was going to LIGHT it UP once again! This time I used LED lights with prongs and I think I found the solution...

I think my workshop this weekend will be ELECTRIFYING! LOL...
