(I hope you can see the "thanks" imprinted in the card above- it looks awesome in real life, but was very hard to photograph!)
I wanted to thank everyone for your support during Gallery Idol. I was thrilled to make it to the top 10, and it was so much fun to challenge myself each week! I am now curious like the rest of you to see who is going to win tomorrow....I know I have my favorite :)
I also wanted to explain my absence as of late. Now, some of you might not have even noticed a difference, but a few of you have emailed or messaged me asking why I have been posting less. The reason is, I have been really busy! I know I have probably mentioned some of this already, but I figured I'd put it all here in one spot in case you were curious.
- The end of the school year is always crazy- tying up loose ends, performances, scheduling for next year, cleaning up, etc.
- Although school ended last Thursday, and technically I am on summer vacation, I am still just as busy (if not busier!) than before. I am taking classes towards my masters, and the program that I am in takes place over 3 summers- this will be my 2nd. Coursework started online in the beginning of June, and next week I will be on campus full time....and all this week I have been catching up on homework!
- I have been working on some secret card crafty stuff :)
- I am illustrating a book! I'm not sure how much I am at liberty to discuss, but a lot of my time has been spent drawing and painting, making edits to my work, checking in with the publisher, etc.
You'll still see me posting for my DTs (Clear and Simple Stamps, My Thoughts Exactly, Young Crafters Unite), and of course for my challenge, the Runway Inspired Challenge.
I also need to let you know that I will be doing less commenting on blogs, and will be slower at answering emails for the above reasons....sorry!
Below are the products I used on my card, from Clear and Simple Stamps. (patterned cardstock from SEI) Goodnight, everyone!
