Tour of Blogs: A Little Bit about Me and Paying it Forward
A Little Bit About Me
Paying it ForwardI follow a huge number of blogs with my reader and each morning spend time just cruising these blogs gathering tidbits as I go along. I am always just amazed at how much talent there is out there and the Internet has made it possible for all of us to share our creativity. What a wonderful world we live in. So now I am asked to decide on three blogs to showcase and share with you. It was hard to narrow it down to just 3 blogs, but these three ladies have really been an inspiration to me as I continue on my journey. In truth, I feel these ladies are dear friends even though we have never met in person. We live in different parts of the country but are united in the fact that we love what we do. So here are my three bloggers:
Sylvia Nelson (Sylvia's Stamping Corner)You know how you have known someone for awhile and you don't even know how or when you became friends? Well that is how it has always been with Sylvia. We are kindred spirits and I would love to be her next door neighbor. I would spend a lot of time with her in her beautiful craft room watching her create. I would soak up her stamping lessons like a sponge...her abilities are like none other I have ever seen. She can make a plain piece of paper come to life with beautiful colors and images...I'm in awe of her gorgeous cards. Sylvia is on the design team at COLOURQ and does such an amazing job with the challenges! She uses only Stampin' Up products and oh my, the beauty she can create! I never learned to stamp the way she does and her cards are all just little works of art!
Olga Jewell (Craftieodamae)I first met Olga when we worked on the Heartfelt Creations design team together. She was so friendly and right away I felt like I had known her all my life. She has continued to be a part of the amazing design team for Heartfelt Creations and I love her creations. Her flowers are always so beautiful and I love how she plays so well with color! Even after I left the design team we have continued to keep in touch and we call each other now and then just to chit chat! I always love hearing from her and catching up! Olga and I have never met, but you would never know it if you could listen in on our conversations. We are never at a loss for something to talk about! Olga still works outside the home but finds time to create some beautiful cards!
Selma Stevenson (Selma's Stamping Corner)
I got to know Selma when I entered a weekly challenge and she visited my blog. Well, you know how we are...we get a visit and we visit back. Well when I went to Selma's blog, my heart skipped a few beats! Her flowers were the most gorgeous, life-like, I had ever seen. She is definitely the flower queen! She was truly an inspiration to me and I have always tried to achieve the level of skill she has with flowers! Let me just say, it is an ongoing process, because Selma keeps raising the bar on me! Selma was on the Heartfelt Creations design team and was leaving to do other things and she mentioned to me that I might be interested in trying out for the team. Well I decided to jump in and give it a try and was so pleased when I made the team! Selma was a cheerleader for me and helped me get my bearings of being on a design team after so many years of not being linked to any company. I am always anxious to see what Selma is going to do next and she never disappoints me Selma now designs for Susan Tierney-Cockburn using Susan's Garden Dies and still makes some of the most awesome flowers I have ever seen! I would love to make a midnight raid on her craft room...I'd load up my pockets with all kinds of dies!
I’d like to thank Kathy again for giving me this opportunity to share a little more about myself with all of you. And my heart is full of gratitude for the three fabulous women I’ve featured here today. Visit their blogs, and prepare to be inspired. They inspire me every single day!
