I’m excited that we finally have the last of the old videos uploaded. Sometimes you don’t realize how far behind you are getting, until you’re there. I’m not sure why we haven’t been uploading as many videos as we used to, but I’m hoping the tide is turning. I wanted to have a small contest for viewers around the Elf on the Shelf that I’ll be showing in all of my Christmas videos this year. When I was crafting with Shelli and Linda, Shelli thought Rich should choose the name from those submitted, so we rolled with it. Rich didn’t know about his new responsibility until after it was committed to video, and as usual, he was happy to help the channel. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in this endeavor, as he’s exceptional with technology, and has done a tremendous job with editing and choosing music. He’s a one-in-a-million kind of guy, and I’m lucky he’s my one-in-a-million guy.
After uploading that video, I think Rich thought he might get a breather, but then I told him I need another one to go live tomorrow and another one the day after, so his week is already committed. I’m hoping that some of the videos aren’t exceptionally long, so it doesn’t take him too long to edit them.
I finished the flip card today, and figured out what I was doing wrong. I didn’t realize that it needs to be flipped back on itself to be “closed” and that you pull on it to open it. I guess it never occurred to me how the mechanism worked. I know I sound kind of dingy, but I just never really looked at one before. Of course the card I made had to be remade, as it was stamped on the wrong side, but these things happen, and often for the best.
I’m hoping that Rebecca from Rubber Stamp Tapestry likes this card, as I made it with her new stamp sets and discussed the upcoming destash video within the body of this one. I feel bad that I’ve been using old videos because I’m not updating anyone on the project to make a difference for those who lost crafty things in the flood.
