I have been so very blessed by you guys sending me cards and gifts in the mail.  Your wonderful things were piled on the floor against the wall and on my table.  Not the best way to take care of tons of love.  😦

I went to Michaels yesterday afternoon to purchase two storage boxes.  One is called a “Photo Box”.  This box holds all the beautiful cards you have made and sent to me.  Now in one place instead of scattered everywhere.

I had to purchase another box, a pretty box, to hold your gifts that I can use in my crafting.  I’ve put your things together in baggies instead of just dumping the whole bounty inside the box and not knowing who blessed me with what.

Not much has changed in my craft room.  It is still quite a mess but I hope to be able to get another 15 minutes in there today to make a larger dent in that mess.

Michelle Birdsong had posed a question to me more than a month ago.  She had received a large gift of craft supplies from someone.  In the bounty was a set of Flock.  Michelle wants to know how to use the stuff.

This coming Monday – February 27, 2017 – I will be answering that question on my YouTube Channel.  So if there is anyone else that has this same question, then stay tuned.

Flock….quite a number of you will remember what that is.  Wallpaper and lamp shades had this velvety raised stuff.  Mostly the images were a form of brocade.  Black flock on white background was a particular favorite in many homes.

Brush up against the wallpaper and some of the flock would come off on your clothing.  High traffic areas would find the flock rubbed clean off the design.

These little bottles of Flock from Doodle Bug Designs, which can still be purchased today, may seem skimpy for content by many standards.  This stuff though is like glitter.  A little goes a long way.

So come join me on Monday, February 27th while I answer a Subscriber Question.  Now I’m going to get the “Flock” out of here.

      I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry Barbara! I just saw your comment from 24 days ago! I’ve had to take nearly everything out because it became a worse mess, if you can even imagine that!
      Love you girlfriend.
