Default I have been gone a long time!

I can't tell you the last time I surfed on Splitcoast Stampers!! It's been years I'm sure!

Life just got out of control!! LOL! Well, busy more like it. Over the past few years, my brother had a really rough time mental health wise so it took a long time to recover from that trauma. He also went and had a kid (with a now ex-girlfriend), but now I have a sweet little nephew who is 3 yrs old today!
We also built a house (had to live with hubby's mother for 9 months), and I JUST finished a 2 year long university course (Career Development Practitioner) which I took while working full time! I'm exhausted! LOL!

But now that my course is done and our house is built....I really want to get back into stamping. When I look back on my gallery, I cringe because some of my cards seem so ugly to me now!! LOL! There's a few I still like, but I think I might delete the ones I don't!

Anyone else feel like that? Looking back on the cards you uploaded years ago.....now they're not so pretty??

I have some real dogs! But I haven't deleted them because it's fun to look back at how far a stamper has come - like those cringe-worthy yearbook pictures....

Welcome back!

Welcome back!
You know, that's a really good point!!! Maybe I will leave them then! I never thought of it like that. Thanks for your feedback!

Welcome back Jo-Anne! Oh yes, when I look back at some of the first cards I created I have to say to myself "What were you thinking!". I would keep them so you can always have the memories.

Welcome back! Sometime we have to stop and do things we don't really want to do.

This year I've been there too. Helping take care of my mother in law. Who has missed living at home for 6 months now. Hopefully she will be able to come home again!
