My girlfriend and I went to a few garage sales a couple of days ago, and sadly, couldn’t find much that made me happy…but, we also went to a local church that is allowing food trucks to sit there, and I bought a huge bag of kettle corn, so my day was complete and my stomach full of goodness.
I had bought some trivets from the Dollar Tree, and material that I really liked from Joanns, to layer on the back of the trivets. I took the little “feet” off the bottoms of the trivets, and as I did, I kept thinking that I should put them somewhere”safe” or I would lose them. I know you’re thinking that it should have been simple to find a safe place to put them, but sadly, my safe place turned out to be not so safe, as I lost three of the eight feet…Darn it.. So I’m rethinking how to turn something else into feet for one of my trivets, or instead, just use that trivet in my craft room for something else…I’m not sure what, since my glue gun no longer seeps glue when it’s just sitting there…I have to say, I’m still really impressed with the Gorilla Glue mini glue gun I bought at Joanns a few months ago. And, it was really inexpensive. Here’s a video I made when I bought it in case you’re interested in getting one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8aAxDjeaFY
I worked on the scrap Christmas cards, and boy will I end up with a lot of them when I’m done..And by a lot, I mean between 30-40 cards…That’s a lot for me. No wonder it’s taken me a month to finish them. haha
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been trying to do a few giveaways for a couple of reasons. During Corona, it’s nice to have some little thing to look forward to I think, and although the giveaways weren’t huge, they would be a nice treat for the winner….And, since my channel isn’t monetized, I think YouTube isn’t putting my videos where people can readily find them. If you are subscribed and know when one of my videos go live, that’s great, but it’s probably the only way you’ll find them. It’s frustrating for me, and the numbers of views on my videos is reflecting that issue. I wish I knew what to do to help people with physical limitations find my channel. That’s always been the big question, but now that YouTube isn’t putting my videos into people’s options, it’s getting worse. I might make a video where I explain it and ask everyone who watches my videos if they would be willing to spread the word about it on facebook or other social media. Do you think that would help? At least I’d know I’ve done everything I can to get as many people as possible to find my channel. I know my channel isn’t for everyone (thus the title,) but I wish YouTube found value in it, even if I don’t bring them any money from advertisements, but I also don’t cost them any money, because they don’t pay me to make videos… Geez…this is frustrating.
