Blog Giveaway Winner :: Comfort Levels

Hey Bleeps! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! Today, I have some great news to share...Noora won the paper crafting kit up for grabs from last week! YAAAAY for Noora! Please e-mail me your mailing address and I'll ship it to you!

Thanks so much for participating in the Blog Giveaway. I'm really grateful for my blog readers (you) and your continued support.

So, last week's question centered around designers level of comfort. Some people discussed how their comfort level changed in their life than in their design style. I can imagine that, but I'm pretty much a risk-taker. Although I like certain styles in clothes and designs, I like to test the waters, just to see how it turns out. I'm always searching for the next big thing whether it's a new hairstyle, outfit, color combination, or technique. It makes everything fun, especially when there really is a breakthrough!

Also, many of you only liked to try new things when you have time. I think that's pretty much the way it goes. If you're like me and create a card and project on your way out the door to a party, there is no way I am trying the new stamping technique I learned. I would design the best way I know how - whatever that is!

Another thing I'd like to share is - just because you try something and it doesn't work the first time doesn't mean you can't do it. It has taken me about two and half years of card making to get to a point where I like my designs. But, I feel like there's always room to grow and with time, styles change and I'll look back on my cards today a year from now and gasp with disgust. Yep, I do that too! So, it's important to keep moving on and try something new, even if it's from time-to-time. Have fun with it!

Here's what my Bleeps think! :)

You all like to try new things. I'm not surprised because you enjoy surfing blogs, which means you're probably looking for inspiration or techniques to pick up. We all love our comfort zone, but trying new things, such as a color combination, technique, or new products is easy to incorporate in your creativity process. Give it a go if you don't already!

Thanks again for participating! I just passed 300,000 hits yesterday and I'm so grateful for every one. I just may have to REALLY celebrate this week! You all really have shown me some love so it's only proper I share a little back!

See you tomorrow (in a video)! :) Take care!
