Would You Like Some Wine?

My friend who shall remain nameless--ok Katie--got me hooked on Bella stamps. I only have 3 now, but us moms get together and stamp out each other's Bellas like we were doing drugs. In our stamping bellas haze, I managed to get some of Katie's winobella stamped and have made a few cards.

I originally thought I would use them for party invitations. My husband and I keep saying we are going to have an adult wine --notice the lack of "h"-- party sometime soon. Still hasn't happened. Instead, I used it as a birthday card for my dad's wife. I think she will like it. While I was at it, I made an envelope for it. I thought it made a pretty package.

I'm usually long winded. I have a lot to say. About a lot of things. But, blogging is not easy. I have a blog because I joined etsy and it is supposed to be a good marketing tool. I honestly don't know how. Really. I have had a few sales only. No one has heard of me let alone my blog so who is going to bookmark me to come and read and re read the fascinating life of moi?

So, I am going to try to post twice a week for those who have never seen or read my blog. Well, my husband has. But he doesn't count. It is his job as my husband to read my blog, visit my shop, my flicker account and generally be extremely interested in what I do. I don't even think my mom has read my blog. That is bad when your mother hasn't.

I have also read that it is important to write about other things than your shop. Stuff like your kids, life, vacation, etc. Well, my kids aren't getting posted on a public forum. Sorry, but their pictures aren't getting put out there for anyone to see. The world is just a bit too weird for that right now. I do, however, have a great picture of my dog that I just took. I'll post that later. No one is going to grab him. Not and keep their hands.

So, I will post a picture of a daisy. Yup, a daisy. I have been fooling around with my camera. I would really like to get better at photography. I have been especially working with the macro setting and the flash. Yeah, newbie stuff, but you have to start somewhere. Here is an upclose picture of a daisy sitting on my kitchen table. I think it turned out pretty good.
