I'm passably crafty... You rock!!!

Good afternoon everyone,
A TSB designer, Stacie Gorse, had the most brilliant quote on her blog that I just had to pass along to all my crafty blogger friends,
"Once upon a time if you wanted to be an artist you had to drag your portfolio to gallery after gallery, agent after agent, hoping someone will like you and give you an audience. That’s not true anymore. The internet has equalized things, you don’t have to be the most popular crafter at your local scrapbooking store. You don’t have to have a large following to start a blog. You don’t have to stay awake until the wee hours of the morning practicing with your markers before your stuff is good enough to show the world. You don’t need someone to give you permission to be an artist because you already are one.  Be you, because you rock. Blog now, share your stuff now, just because you can."
-Colleen Chapman

Isn't this awesome? Colleen  owns an amazing store (link above) with everything Copic.
If you love this quote, pass it along. Just make sure Colleen gets her credit. :)
Now, start creating!

Natalie and Kendra.

Good afternoon everyone,
I named these 2 images after my friend Melissa's girls. I hope I did them justice and she likes them.
I'm "almost" in the mood for those Christmas cards. It's finally cooling off in Indiana. Time to get started.
Have a wonderful week!!!
