Only after a year and a half of having signed up for this thing have I decided to finally start this blog! In part due to the inspiration of my dear friend Kate ( and kraftinkate on YouTube) and her embarking on the blog world.  Although I LOVE making YouTube videos, and extreme YouTubing, sometimes its easier to just write what I am doing, have been doing, and what I want to do rather than sit infront of the webcam and talk.  Although I am VERY good at talking. HA! So in this very first blog, I want to put a few things out there and see what kind of responses I get!

First off, I do want to congratulate Kate on all of her recent achievments i.e. becoming a resident designer for as well as becoming a part of The Creative Type blog as well.  GO KATE! She has been an inspiration and has motivated me to be more hands on with crafting and I enjoy her to the max! I have the pleasure of calling her my friend :)

With the success of the LO swap I hosted (which if you are my YouTube follower, you may know about) I have decided that I want to do another one....more details as I get organized and get them together.  LOL.

Also, keep an eye out for there will be a few cardshowers, card swaps, card challenges in the very near future.  The first up will be a cardshower, and more details on that in a few days.

So, now it's up to you...what do YOU want to see/do/participate in? Let me know!

I want all of you to know I appreciate all of your support throughout this venture into craftyland! It means more to me than you know!



  1. hey hey scrappy sister! welcome to the blog world. thanks for the awesome shout out! looking forward to following your posts! ~ love ~ kate

  2. Yeee's great that you are embarking on this all your vids and now will get to enjoy your of luck...Chrissy (Ruledbylabs).

  3. I'm excited to see what you do with this adventure. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be great. I'm a card maker myself, so I'd love to see some posts about card making. I've never done a challenge, swap, or anything like it so I have no clue how to join in. Maybe someone will be nice enough to hold my hand through it? LOL Any takers? I look forward to following you as you create/discover what you want this blog to be. Good luck with it! Thanks, Pat (YT is PatsTreasuresNCrafts)

  4. Hi Alex! I have been a lurker for a long time and decided to have a voice! I enjoy watching everyone's vids and such so please don't give up those! I have never been in any kind of swap but I am totally interested. I am so bummed that Kristina Werner stepped down from Two Peas. I really enjoyed her Finally Friday vids. I see that the garden girls are going to take that over. Hmm.. what would I like to see... I would like to see posts, pics, and vids of seasonal cards and LO of current seasons, so Halloween??? I KNOW you would like that!
