Johnny 5’s Alive – Blog Candy

Johnny 5’s Alive was the first thing that popped into my head when Maxx drew out the blog candy winning number.  Movie quotes and characters pop into my head at the most random of times.  My friend Carla Schauer does the same thing.  Total randomness will bring out a line from a movie.  It is a good thing we both watched the same movies growing up.  I learned a bit by asking for honest comments.  Not as many people will leave them.  So I appreciate those of you who did.  I did learn to post a bit more about myself.  Not too much though.  A few pictures here and there might help too.  Materials list and tutorials are what I need to consider next.  Those are something I will have to work on.  Not my favorite things.  I really dislike writing directions.  They are hard enough to do it when I am getting paid let alone do it for the heck of it.  But I will try.  Maybe I will start off small.  Say, once a month?  Maybe twice?  I do know that I promised a few people directions on a multi-fold card I did a few weeks ago.  Give me another week and I will have it done.This card was inspired by my new friend Sheila Cantonwine.  She was making cards like this when I was at her house.  They were so whimsical I had to give it a try.

PS.  I almost always list the materials I use in tags at the top of the page.  95% of the ink I use is ClearSnap some of you might also know it as ColorBox, Ancient Page or Cat’s Eyes

    So, I am guessing that number 5 was your winner? You don’t sound super excited to make changes to the way you blog. It’s your blog…so only make the changes that fit with you. I like visiting regardless of whether or not you give directions or offer tutorials or any of that stuff!

    Congrats to #5! (right?)

    I agree that it’s your blog and just do what you like. If you don’t want to get too personal – and a lot of people don’t – then just do your crafting here. If you don’t do tutorials and someone wants to know how to do something, they can just ask for the answers in the comments, right?

    I guess what I’m saying is that you do what you like here on your blog. It’s YOUR blog and it’s nice. And no, that’s not a suck-up comment either. hehe… the blog candy already went to someone else. 😉 I know you asked for suggestions but only do the changes that you are comfortable with.
