First Video! :-)

Hi Everyone!

So here it is! The first, in what I hope will be many, online video tutorials for you. I hope you like it and that it's clear enough for you to see! I'm sorry for the overuse of the words "umm" and "versatile"....filming is not as easy as it looks! :-) I hope you'll bear with me as this was my very first video and I was a little camera shy. I'm also still learning to edit, so some places may seem slightly cut off. If I've missed anything, you should be able to find the details below. One thing I did want to mention: In the video, I said the EK Success punch was called "bumpy road". It's actually "round binding punch". Sorry about that!

Thanks so much for watching and have a great weekend!

You asked...we listened! :-)

When I mentioned doing more online tutorials, many of you expressed interest in videos. So, hubby and I have been working hard behind the scenes to get that started! And let me tell you...that was no easy task! lol No matter where we put the tripod, it was in the way of my manuevering my wheelchair around my craft room. And then there was the consideration of my being able to reach the video camera to turn it on. After several failed attempts, we set up a little work station in our dining room, so it looks like I'll be filming from there. Hopefully, it will work out good. You may not get to see alot of my face (lucky you! lol) but you should be able to see the projects being completed.

So, I just wanted to update you today. I'm working on the first of what I hope will be many fun videos for you! I found a cute sketch in an old magazine which sparked an idea. And I'm thinking I may do several projects based on this one...just to show you how versatile sketches can be.

See you all soon!! :-)
