I don't have the accessories you seem to have and steals of sales are not the norm here, so I watch my pennies when I want some bling or thing. And then I wonder whether it is lack of imagination on my part. Or maybe it's old age creeping in and I can't admit it. LOL. But most of all I enjoy the comraderie among the many. Keep up the good work ladies. You are an inspiration to us all.
Norma, I have never seen anything you have made that makes me think you are "just an actor". The very idea! You do beautiful things, and you have plenty of imagination.
And there isn't any such thing as "competing" as far as I am concerned. I think we are just playing together, learning from each other, and getting to know special friends who have the same interests. When the "competition" starts, I am outta here!
I have so much stuff that I have collected over the years that I can hardly get around in my craft room, and still find myself buying what I need for a project. So don't feel bad about not having "stuff". And I am probably older than you, so don't use that either. You have inspired me many times and I am sure lots of others feel the same way.
