Exciting day!!

Edited: I wrote this post late last night, as I was writing it my computer had a meltdown and wouldn't back up anymore. I was up until 3am trying to fix it. Then this morning I got a call at 7am from my apartment manager saying that someone was coming to do repairs that were supposed to be done 3 months ago in an hour. I then had him here, was on the phone with apple for 2 hours fixing my computer, and then an hour and a half calling to postpone jury duty. Phew! I still have four hours of work for my new job to do today too, but I needed a quick break and thought I would post the entry I wrote last night. If you actually make it through this whole post, you get a gold star! haha! :)


So I started a new job today (technically yesterday). It went really well! I am super tired though! Although, for some reason I am still awake. I am such a night owl! The cool thing about this job is that I mostly get to work from home since it is all computer and internet based! Yay!

Today I also surpassed 5000 hits! I seriously never thought that would happen, and I have to thank everyone in this blogging crafting community. I never realized there were all these other people all around the world that loved doing what I love to do. I don't have any craft-loving friends, so I was so excited to find and join this blogging community. Then I found out that craft bloggers are also the sweetest people around, too! Thank you so much for visiting. I started this blog on January 1st 2009, and I only had 200 hits in January and February. This means pretty much all of these hits have been in the past two months! So thank you again so much for visiting. It seriously does make my day, every day :).

The other big thing going on in my life is that I am selling Mother's Day cards at a trunk show at a locally owned boutique. I am super excited for this. I have been in love with this store for years and now my cards will be sold there! If you live in the LA area or know someone who does, come and check out the show. Audrey*K has the best clothes and jewelry. Audrey, who owns the store, is the best stylist, she just knows what to pick out for you to try on. She is also awesome at finding jeans for every body type. Anyways, stop by if you are in the area either on the day of the show or anytime of the year and support locally owned business!

And since a post is not a post without some cards, here are some more of those 3x3 mini cards I made a while back!



That tree line comes from that really cool new EK Success flat border punch line. It looks like I missed a spot with the blue ink ... eek! 

This one also uses one of those flat border punches. Can you tell that I had just bought distress inks for the first time when I made these? :) jaja!

Thank you so much for visiting! Sorry if this post didn't make much sense. I am tired and energized at the same time, and I think that makes for some weird posting!

Have an amazing day,
kelly marie
