Almost 5 years

I blogged a lot in the past and then I stopped. Several reasons, the most important of course being busy with the kids. I know some moms have no problem doing it all, but I decided to focus on photographing a bit. It has been 5 years since I last posted on this blog which was mainly for my arts and crafts things. I've decided to give it another go and see where this will head to. The youngest is in first grade and I've got plenty of time :) sort of.
Last week I had my first ever home made crafts and it was a huge success. My own designed magnets were a big hit. My writer friend who likes to sew and do crafty things too showed me a magnet machine. It is such a joy to use. The fabric needs to be a bit stiffer for this though and I've learned today that after printing my own designs on printable fabric, instead of taking the paper off, and ironing it onto stiffener, I might as well leave the paper and that is instant stiffener. Yes I know I'm not the only one with one of those Duh moments in life ;) I'm very happy with all the crafts supplies I tend to buy, the empunchlar I once bought in the sale in the times we used to live 5 minutes away from Michaels all of a sudden came in extremely handy as the 1" magnets I have, the actual magnet is smaller and it fits exactly through the circular hole this empunchlar makes. A perfect fit with the cards I designed to go with them. These little coincidences in life make me happy :)
