I just read a great blog by Victoria Elizabeth Barnes . She writes whatI want to write (but she writes about remodeling) in the way that I want to write it but somehow don't. Maybe that's because I mostly write in my head, like random thoughts composing themselves into an almost perfect blog post with no spelling or grammatical errors. But, then I make breakfast and I can't remember ANYTHING. I want everyone to read my blog, I am desperate for you to read my blog but I forget to write my blog. You do see that this is a problem. So, the eggs are congealing in a bowl, my husband is unfed but, drum roll, I am writing this down by hand, with a pen, not too legible but legible enough that I was able to transcribe it. Should I get a voice recorder app for my phone? I hate the way I sound on recordings but I have to find someway of getting what is in my head onto my blog. When I sit down to write, no thoughts come. As I am drifting off to sleep, I write great stuff, remembering none of it in the morning. Have you had this problem? Have you solved it? Please write, send postcards, texts, I need HELP! I even have a sizable stash of cards that need posting that are rotting in the computer (can cards go bad or will they just fade away?).

I found this beautiful floral paper from Anna Griffin (dated 2001 no less) in my stash and I had TONS of it. I must have bought it for invites but who remembers. I stamped my image on X-press blending and colored with copics using online images as a color reference. I really like the way the image turned out but it looked much brighter than the paper, which also had a very antiquey off white background. GRRR. The butterflies and dies were spritzed with Mr. Hueys Calico Shine. This was my Mom's birthday card last September when she turned 91! (just a wee bit late with posting)
