Followers. People who like what you do. And want to see more. I get it, I really do.
But at the moment I'm up to my eyeballs in dealing with an errant teenager and trying to figure out how to be a more effective parent. I'm actually learning new things. Actually very interesting stuff. But VERY energy consuming.
And technology. Don't know if the problem is Blogger. Or my PC. Or the strange sites that are "hitting" my PC from somewhere in remote Russia. But this is definitely taking the fun out of blogging.
And I guess it's also eaten my mojo. Never really knew what that meant when people would write that their mojo had disappeared. Now I get that too. Got a list of cards I need to make. With dates nearing. But I find myself lured out into the sunshine instead of downstairs into my laundry room when I need to clear my head.
Just thought I'd tell ya'll that, in case you were NOT happy about one less message in your reader :)
Figures I could share an old project with you that I did for my parents. After a great weekend spent with them in downtown Detroit (their old "stompin grounds) to celebrate their 60th anniversary. Detroit Institute of Arts. Belle Isle. RenCen. Hart Plaza. City County Building.
The photo shows just the innards - the final product was an 8x10 picture frame. Not that it was spectacular or anything, but it was so much fun to make and they really enjoy looking at it and remembering our time together.
I had sent them 20 of the best photos from the weekend, so when I punched out interesting portions of my copies of those 20 and arranged them here, they were able to recognize them. And they had a blast doing it ("Oh look. Those are my feet...") And I had a blast using my circle punch - moving it around on a photo to see what looked good...
After that I just added some Staz-On stamping onto acetate and put it into a frame.
Bis bald... and may the mojo return.
