Default Long time lurker... but still a noobie...

Hello! As you can see by my join date, I've been lurking for a long time. I've always just looked in the gallery and dreamed about being able to make such beautiful creations, without actually doing anything to get myself to that point. I had tried to change my direction with making some purchases and collecting some paper and stamps, and my dear hubby even made me a "craft box" (25"X25"X14") for storing all my newly acquired goodies but, sadly my collecting out-grew the box, and I still don't have anything to show for it.
I am looking forward to being more active on here! And maybe even have some work to show sometime

Hi Elana! I'm so glad you dove in - I look forward to seeing what you make! I think all we ALL collect a we bit more than we make - so you're in good company.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything on the site.

I second that — it will take me to this coming Christmas to really explore all of the toys and tools I have now. So you're in excellent company! lol I'd recommend just plunging in, because people here are so kind and supportive, you will be encouraged to create even more

Hi Elana and welcome from New Zealand! We all had to start somewhere so take your time. We have all out-grown our craft boxes too - I have appropriated our spare room! Don't be afraid of failing, just try things and decide if you like the effect or not. It is not a failure to want to do something differently and do ask if you have any questions.
