I finally made a card that I absolutely love.  It’s been so long since I’ve made a card that made me feel this much joy, and I can’t wait for you to see the video.  I think I just needed to get back to the basics and play with techniques that are tried and true.  I love the monochromatic look, and I think I took it to a new level.  I guess I’ll wait to hear what you think about it.  Rich is going to put the video up tomorrow.

The poor guy, having to edit and upload the embossing video…it was long and very complicated, and he did an amazing job.  I know that video isn’t for everyone, but it’s a great video to introduce people to embossing, and will be the entry to the others that will follow.

Now on to something really exciting.  It’s supposed to be in the high 40’s tomorrow here.  I can’t believe it.. It’s been so cold and snowy the last few weeks, and I really didn’t anticipate seeing 40 degrees until April.  This is so exciting, I can’t even begin to tell you.  So all in all, it’s been a good day, and tomorrow looks even brighter.  YAY!

We’re going to the college that we attended for a dinner with a group of seniors.  It’s called the Senior Seminar, and it’s a class where students hear the story of alumni and how they got to where they did in their careers.  Rich and I have always done it together, as our career stories are very different, but both tell the students that life will throw things at you that you won’t expect, like arthritis.  It’s what you do with those things that will define you.  The professor that gives the class does a great job of finding a wide variety of careers for the students to hear about, and it’s really a nice evening, listening to what the youth of today want to know about the stories we tell.
