Default Back After A Big Life Change...

Hello folks. I hope you are all well, safe and not going stir-crazy!

I was getting ready to be social in the forums, and start crafting..and...bam!

Just as I was about to ramp up buying supplies to start crafting, I learned in early Dec 2019 that I was going to become the property manager for the house I live in, and moving two rooms of stuff into the Master Bedroom. I moved into the MB on 12/31/2019, and the last 3.5 months has been hectic.

So much to do during Jan and Feb getting new tenants in the empty bedrooms. In early March I finally started getting ready to start crafting. Then the Corona Virus hit, and that put a dent into my crafting schedule.

Happy to say though, that I'm back on track. I have a printer, a hot/cold laminater, and a manual die cutter is in the mail. I have rolls of paper coming. Now I just need need to place a "paint and ink" order, a few die cuts, and I'm in business!

Meanwhile, I've been testing my new printer. I bought a digital journal kit on Etsy to get started, and made 3 small items over the last three weeks. I've got tons of projects in the queue, but am currently working on a re-hab of a tissue box cover.


Here is a photo of what I have made so far...

Thank you!

These 3 items are my first finished pieces. The paper is a digital design I found on Etsy and Photoshopped / Priinted, which I wanted to do because 1) it was my very first time (lol) and 2) I'm saving my super expensive designer papers for when I am a little better at this.

(The photo does not show all sorts of little issues, like bad corners on the box (my current bane, ARG!), and other little assorted problems.)
