Posts have been kind of sporadic here lately – I apologize for that. It’s just been one thing after another. A few weeks ago I hired a virtual assistant so of course as with any job, there’s a lot of training that needs to go on. I also recently contracted a few video editors for Paper Crafter’s Library – so that alone, between the job posting, interviewing and training is taking up a lot of time.
I had some major electrical work done in my home office – re-distributing some of the electrical load, adding some new dedicated outlets and improving lighting. We also added a third room to our set up here. I have our studio where we do all of our design work, an office where myself and two-employees work, and now the third room – a video studio which is where we now do all of our filming.
Then on Saturday we had a minor flood in my studio when the main water pipe coming into the house sprung a leak. Thank heavens it didn’t do more damage! So of course that had to be fixed.
Finally, on Sunday we picked up our new addition to the family – a little puppy we named Ginger. She’s absolutely adorable! She’s a little Pom-Poo (a cross between a Pomeranian and a Toy Poodle). So that’s been a bit of an ajustment LOL! (a good one though).
Anyways, on to today’s project. I created this card using Stampin’ Up!’s Aviary stamp set. I really wanted to have a greeting with a bird pun in it, but didn’t have any, so I created a bunch of them – and then decided to put it into a pdf format for all of you as well!
For those of you that have been asking, there will be a video for the super cute Mushroom On A Log Treat Holder in the Paper Crafter’s Library- it will be posted this week.
