Post office drama!!!

Good Morning,

I finally go and mail my cards for the SOC (Scrappers of Color) Swap. So I am in the post office and I tell the teller that I want t mail my first package ( the one with all the cards) and then I tell her that I want a stamped envelope with enough postage as the package I just mailed. I don't even know if you can do that in the US. But the teller tells me that I can't have a stamped envelope because in Bermuda (which is where I live) a Bermudian stamp has to leave the island and an American stamp has to enter the island. She offered other alternatives but it was too late and it ws going to cost more money!!! I was a little upset because I could not think of how I was going to get the stamped envelope to the host of the swap. I didn't want her to assume the cost of the postage. So after I thought about it for a minute, it clicked that I could ask my friend Ericka to mail it for me. She so nicely agreed!!!! Thanks Ericka, you saved the day!!!!!!

Three new cards!!!!!







Let me just start by saying there are some serious crafters out there and one day that will be me. But for right now, I am content with recreating the wonderful creations of others. Some times I wonder how they even conceived the idea. It is just awesome!!! So over this past weekend and especially today I found some new crafters and of course they had some awesome card videos that inspired me to make some of my own. The funny thing about trying to recreate someones work is that, throughout the process of making it, it gets tweaked and becomes your own!!! I wish I knew how to link their blogs to my site but I don't, but the 1st card is from Debbie Olson, the 2nd card is from joliebean (she has a youtube channel !!!), and the last card is from Dawn a Stampin Up!! instructor!!
