To blog, write or Craft?

Crafty is currently pondering the state of things.........
Whether to write, blog or otherwise, craft or both?
Considering that we were not born to be a bookkeeper, and that is what we have been doing since 1986......
well, maybe one of these days a combination of both writing and crafting will pan out.

Joined the Stamps of Life Die Hard club today. That should add some fun. The Stamp of the Month club membership has been a real treat!  And pondering some Cricut courses and other venues.  The web lends itself well to learning just about any craft.

On the writing side of things, have taken out a membership in Proverbs 31 Ministries Compel writing group.
A real resource for writers, Christian and otherwise.
Visit them at Compel .

And finally, on my third manuscript book launch team, having previously reviewed books for Valorie Burton and Lysa Terkeurst of P31.  This time around, Christian author Sheila Walsh's new book is in my Kindle and challenging my thinking.  Check out The Storm Inside.

Welcome to One Crafty Cat

Welcome to One Crafty Cat.
Yes, this is a work in progress, as I hope one day to move to a different venue and I hope I have many more blogging skills by then.
I am a small business owner, who would rather delve into writing, knitting, crochet, sewing and now paper crafts.  I just bought my first Cricut, and a Big Kick and a few other toys.  I'm currently learning to use them.
One day there may be jewelry making and quilting thrown in.
I welcome your comments, and membership.
If you are a crafty cat too, feel free to share any ideas for projects, books, tutorials etc. If you use your Cricut to make things to sell, share that as well.

Thanks for visiting today!
Crafts are certainly popular these days!  I never see my local Hobby Lobby empty!

Happy Anniversary Stamps Of Life

As a new stamper and paper crafter still trying to figure things out, nothing has been as enjoyable to me as Stephanie Barnard's web site The Stamps of Life. The products are always cute, clever and fun.  She's got everything from stamps to paper, ink to buttons to decorate with.  So pretty!
You have to see the videos she puts out, which are always informative and again FUN!
I recently joined the monthly stamp club, where for a low price you receive a monthly stamp set.
Each one (and I have about four now) has been just delightful.  They arrive every month a few days after the first of the month, and the whole package costs me $12.95. You never know quite what they will send next, but every set has been something I gladly would use on my cards.
She recently set up a new club offering matching dies:  the Die Hard club.
That one was so popular, it now has a waiting list. I'm contemplating signing up soon for that one.
Thank you Stephanie and Co. for making us smile, and putting out a great selection of product.
Happy fourth anniversary!
