Taking the plunge...

Hi y'all!

How is it springing up in your neighborhood??

Sunshine and beautiful weather in my part of this world.

Well, since my last post, I have felt like a piece of my heart has been ripped out. My favorite online scrapbook site, Crop Chocolate, is closing their doors on the retail aspect of their business.  When I read their announcement on Sunday, I felt like my whole scrapbook world falling apart! I was stunned. Very sad moment/day/week for me. I have grown so much as a crafter from being part of that wonderful site, and made some fantastic friends.

One of the things that I am most distressed about is that I will never know what it is like to be on their DT. Especially when I had actually submitted 2 entries for their DT#4. Imagine that! Me! Trying out for a team!!! But, in retrospect, I am glad I tried, as it was a HUGE plunge for me.

Here is one of my submissions:

It's a 'She-Art' inspired piece for my DD's room. She loves it. I do too, and it was super fun (but tedious!) to do. Maybe I'll attempt an Instructagram on making one of these bad-girls! lol

So, was my attempt of trying out for the CC DT in vain? Maybe. But I never wold have had the confidence, or the guts, to try out without the encouragement of the CCers, to take that plunge. They are awesome!

So, that's all I have for now.

Be safe. Get crafty!

This is such a gorgeous piece of art!!!! I'm so sorry your favorite place closed :( Take this opportunity to look around at new scrapbook communities. Maybe you'll find one that you love more...
