Before I get to today's post I just wanted to thank you for your messages and comments. From time to time some of you e-mail me personally and other times you leave a comment with a question. I do read them all and I do try to respond back to you but I don't always find a means of doing that (you don't have a blog with an e-mail address attached to it or you leave an anonymous comment etc). If I cannot answer back to you personally I will often edit my post to include it in the body of the post. If you have a question that you would like answered please leave a way for me to contact you and I will gladly answer your questions--I LOVE your questions. Also, if there is ever a card/project that I post and you just have no clue how I did something please ask me. I don't post things to leave you in the dark, I post them to inspire you and teach you how to do something. To be honest, I overlook some of the things I do because they are second nature (I have been doing some things for so long I don't realize they are a step) but that doesn't mean they aren't important to a new or even veteran stamper. I am the first to admit that there are times I too have questions regarding cards. No question is a silly question even if it is something that looks easy. We all have to learn somewhere. So don't be shy. Ask away.
I sure have a lot of teacher's to thank in the next little while. My son has a regular teacher and 2 TA's, his Donjitsui teacher as well as his therapeutic swimming teacher ...and then of course there is my daughter's regular teacher (although right now she has a temp teacher who is in for the next two weeks while her teacher undergoes surgery), her ballet teacher and her gymnastics teacher...so that is 9 cards in total. As a teacher myself, I have to admit a TY card goes a long way. Teaching can be a lonely job and sometimes a pat on the back can be the perfect boost. I like to remind those people who work with my children how grateful I am to have them in our lives.
