Some of my friends have asked me what I'll blog about — and I guess I'll just do a little of everything in my life. I'm a preschool director by day, so I'm sure that will creep in from time to time. Gotta love preschoolers and their fresh perspective on the world! I've been insanely addicted to papercrafting for several months, reviving my dormant craft genes. Believe it or not, years ago I was even published a few times — so I decided to give it a whirl again recently and had one card picked up by Take Ten, which was pretty fun. My true identity lies in knowing Christ as my Savior, so — if anyone's reading this — you can probably expect a pretty steady dose of faith tossed in. Then there's daily life — my husband, our kids (all grown up now!), our dog, our neighborhood and city, our extended family and friends. Just ordinary stuff, I guess.
I plan to share photos of cards I've made, projects I've worked on, gifts I've given. . .and maybe someone will be inspired to give crafting a try. I find that when my hands are busy making something that my heart sings within me. Since I like to share, I've named my blog "Show and Tell." Show and Tell day at preschool is much anticipated. And I have felt much of that eagerness as I've thought about and planned for this day. When I was playing around with some stamps and papers earlier this week this series of cards just came together and I KNEW they would be perfect for my first post.
Three happy cards to brighten your day. Thanks for visiting!
