Lost in Blogville

Ok how is it we can figure something out then come back 6 months later and don't have the foggiest idea what we were doing or how we did it.

I'm adding more books to my Book Page and  no way can I figure out how I added the first 3 or 4 books and authors so that you can just click on the Series and go there to see more about them.  So I'm starting new on the Chaos Walking Trilogy.  So irritating.

Now if someone would read this and help me understand Blogger.  They really need to get more tabs at the top of there pages to help Bloggers figure things out.

Ok back to adding books

Hello Everyone,

Well I am starting to wonder if the blond in me is just to much for computerizing, blogging etc.  Or if things are really as hard as they seem.  I for some reason can NOT get to this blog of mine without alot of work.

I have put in this 
and it goes to..............The Mouse for Moms blogspot ..........that is not me.

No matter what I do I can NOT get to my bogspot without a lot of work.  And it used to be called  Now it is

If anyone out there can help me out that would be great.  Thanks and have a great week.

Paper Piecing My Newest Addiction

List Below

Ok if you are a crafter you know as well as I do addictions are easy to start.  Seems I have several.  Well I have A.D.D (Attention Deficit Disorder)  so that might have something to do with why I go in all directions.  Someone once said I can be on 20 subjects all in a matter of  ONE MINUTE.  

Each time I see something really neat I want to learn to do it too.  

So now I have been seeing some really great things on Etsy and have placed several orders before starting to talk to myself.  Am I the only one that does that ?  I sure hope not.  Anyways I was having a conversation about why should I pay for all of these when I could do this too.  I can use my Cricut and make little kids.  I could design scrapbook pages to sell.  There is so many things I could do with these.  I need to find out where I can get them.  


I asked one Etsy Seller if she would PLEASE tell me where I can learn about this too.  She sent me to some of the following Websites.  I started off with getting a few free designs.  Printed them off then decided hmmm I think I will get some more.  One turned into 5, then 5 turned into 10 now I think I have about 100 designs.  But don't tell hubby I haven't made any yet.  I am collecting them.  LOL

Here is an example of one of the FREEBIES one of the owners below shared.

Washi Tape Mittens

What is Washi Tape you might ask.  Well I just learned all about it in October when our Archivers Scrapbook Store was shutting down.  It is sort of a cross between Masking Tape and Sticky notes.  But in pretty colors.

Everyone told me you just have to buy some it is so awesome.  You can do so much with it.  So I bought a couple rolls and took them home.  And made some Christmas Cards.  Here is what they look like.

The following week they had an even bigger discount on entire store items.  So I bought more Washi Tape.  Friends were complaining saying did I leave any for them to buy.  Yikes.  LOL  Yes don't worry I did leave a FEW rolls for them. But I ended up buying around 30 rolls some doubles because I fell in love with the design.

I covered a light switch cover so that it would match the colors of the room I was decorating.

Pretty Cool Don't you think ?  Here is one I found on Pinterest.  After I made mine and was so proud thinking to myself (Can't wait to share this idea bet no one else has thought of it) ha ha ha  Boy was I wrong. grin

One more idea for you.  Then if you want to see a whole folder of ideas you will have to join my FaceBook Store.   Creative Crafts and Supplies.  Find the url below the following exampler.

Here is my FaceBook Store / Group.  Just go here and ask me to approve you.

Creative Crafts and Supplies

What have you done with Washi Tape ?  Why not share it on here for others to read about.  Share your pictures too if it will let you.  I can't wait to see them.

Check out my store, sorry no shopping carts yet.  Just now adding washi tape.  Over 90 designs to choose from.

Finally my Blog & MY STORE

          Wow I have been searching for this blog.  Pretty bad when you lose something that you created.  I even pinned it on Pinterest so I could find it no problem.  Well that would have been good if I had remembered where I  pinned it.  Ha ha.  So now I made a board called Blogs to follow and yep I put mine in there.  I am not losing it again.  

So I hope everyone has been doing good.  Things are crazy around here.  Here is what I have been up to.  

 First off I opened an Etsy store which by the way you can find here....

Or if you have FaceBook you can find my other store on there and see discounts I give that I don't give on Etsy.  And listings go on my FB store first.  Oh and if the link below doesn't work just go to your FB page, and in search box type in this name below.  Then ask me to approve you.

WHY do I sent people to my FB Store?  Well because Etsy charges .20 cents to list items then Etsy takes a % of each sale.  But I will stay without Etsy I would not have Customers.  It is a great place to start up a store then pull your customers over to Facebook.

Have you possibly been thinking about Starting your own store for things you make and want to sell?  Wait don't just go to Etsy and sign up.  Click on the following link and get 40 FREE listings.  But wait there is more.  Once you list your very first item that is when your 40 FREE listings will start.  AND I get 40 free listings also.  But neither one of us get anything free until you list your first item.  So go for it, it is free to open the store.  And pretty easy to do.  If you get lost just ask one of us on Etsy for help.  Everyone is really nice and helpful

Oh and just to let you know, My Store is Creative Crafts and Supplies, but well Etsy only allows Names that are so long.  So be prepared you might have to come up with something new like I did when you can't fit the choice you want into the little box that they provide.

Now take the step, go open a store.  It is fun and easy and I have met new friends on there through other store owners.  Ok enough on this post.  

I need to post much much more to share with all of you.  So hurry back.  
Have a great week.
