FINALLY!!! I made a couple of videos…I couldn’t sleep this AM, so got up with the dogs at 6AM and then just laid in bed, and finally decided that was just dumb, so got up and went to my craft room..I’ve been wanting to make the card that I’m doing a video collaboration with Rebecca Walton from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, and decided today was the day. I’ve thought this card through for the last week, and would have been devastated if the end result wasn’t at all like I had planned. It came out better than I’d hoped and can’t wait until Monday at noon, when both of our videos go live.
I figured while I was in the craft room, I’d do another video on guillotine paper trimmers. I think they can be kind of tricky to use, and to measure on, so went through the whole process of how to do almost everything with it. Obviously, not every crafter would be interested in finding out more about guillotines, but for those thinking of buying one, or ones who own them but don’t use them or don’t know how to use them, I thought it would be a good video for them….You never know. I had a viewer ask me to do a video on how to trim paper, and that was the biggest hit..So many people said they had trouble cutting paper, and doing it so their paper wasn’t crooked, and it made me happy that I could help. I kind of feel the same way about this video. There will be some people who think it’s too elementary, but then I think most of my videos aren’t made for the advanced crafter, and I’m happy that beginners can learn, and maybe others, who are afraid to ask for help, will benefit too.
My girlfriend’s mom, who was 96, passed away, and her funeral is tonight, so I think I’m going to take a nap and hopefully, will be wide awake for it. I’m not an early morning girl, so the fact that I got up so early today, is not my norm….A nap is definitely in order.
