Be a Superhero!

While going through my Twitter feed I came across a tweet by You Tube.  I was so completely touched by what this guy did to help out homeless people and be a “Superhero” for some that I knew I wanted to share his story and spread the news.  We all have it in us to be a superhero to someone today.  If you can help someone in need, even if it is in just a small way, do it!  You never know how much your act of kindness will help someone.  Hope you enjoy this video as much as I did.  It made me tear up a little for sure.  Have a wonderful day and share the love.  Be a Superhero!

Colored Foam Adhesive

I have a fellow crafter and blogger that I love to follow. Her name is Melody Lane and she does awesome crafting videos and even has a daily vlog channel of other things she does in her day. Her website is full of great information and project ideas and there is always something to learn from her You Tube crafting tutorials. Today she posted a video on how to make your own colored foam adhesive and I just had to share. It is awesome and something I can’t believe I never thought of. Can’t wait to give it a try and save money making foam dots (or squares, strips, triangles, etc) in colors to match my project. Check out her sites and check out this video. It is and AWESOME idea!

My paper crafting adhesives

My current stash of adhesives I generally use for paper crafting and cards.

This past week while I was making some cards I was thinking about all the different options out there for adhesives for projects.  Today, I thought I’d share with your my personal experience and opinions on adhesives I use when making cards and paper crafting.  These are by no means all the glues I’ve used.  I have some that are only for my scrapbooks, some that I use for general crafts and even ones to use for projects the kids do for school.  I have yet to find that one and only, do all adhesive for all my projects.  There are also some adhesives out there that I’ve heard a lot about but have yet to try (E6000 for example).  Here are my favorite paper crafting and card making adhesives and some reasons why.

Shhh . . . It’s a secret.

I have opened my Shop over at Storenvy but have not made the official announcement yet to the public.  I’m looking for your feedback.  What do you think of my site?  Is the background too busy?  Photos easy to see and clear as to what the cards look like?  What about pricing?  I have struggled with what to charge for my work.  It is hard for me to put a price on my creativeness (Is that a word?).  All the prices at this time are for individual pieces thinking that some people might make up their own custom sets of cards they want.  Continue reading
