Episode 16 : My Craft Room Re Visited and a New Camera

Hello Everyone :)
Well I finally finished re doing the craft. And as promised...
a video reveal. 
I'd love to hear your comments or even some
suggestions to make it even better !
AND...I finally found a camera ! Halaluyah ! It's not the fanciest model, but it does the job. I was looking for an inexpensive combo camera that would would take great pictures and well as  HD 720 video. I had a flip video before, but it just wasn't my favorite. My kodak was a great price at $129 including a 4G memory card. The recording sound quality isn't the best, so I just voice over the narration while I'm editing the videos. I've had kodak cameras before and I've always enjoyed their user friendly approach to picture taking as well as their ease in downloading
options to youtube and facebook.
I'm a happy camper or should I say "crafter"...hehe. 
More pics and videos are on their way :)

Hi Everyone :)
Here's my latest video and project. Another little sum'in, sum'in for my son's 21st birthday :) I'm still not happy with the quality of the video, so I'm still shopping for another camera. The video explains it all :)
But I hope you like the project :)

Hello Everyone :)
Today I wanted to show you the card I made for my son Jonathan. He'll be 21 years old on Monday ! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN ??!!! He's the baby of the family and already a young man ! WOW ! 
Since I had to come up with a guy card, I got the idea of using a Halloween theme since his birthday is in October and I remembered that for his 1st birthday we did a costume party and it was so much fun. He was such a cute baby dressed up like a pumpkin :) I even made the costume myself. He actually won 1st place at out church Halloween party that year wearing that costume :) I'm so blessed to be his mom and I really hope he likes the card :)
Most of the cuts are from the Paper Doll Cart. The sentiment frame is from Gypsy Wanderings. I came up with the sentiment myself, pretty clever, huh :)  And I used my Gypsy to center the sentiment exactly in the frame space. I did a lot of inking and chalking since I couldn't add too many other embellishments
being a guy card and all. 
It's a larger card at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.

The quality of that last video I made was horrible ! I guess I have to get myself a decent video camera ! Oh well, at least I still take good snapshots :)

Hello Everyone !!!  I'M BACK :)
Thanks so much for all the nice "miss you" comments  so many of you had sent me :) I'm so grateful for this awesome crafting community and so happy to have finally adjusted to my new schedule and joining all of you again :)
I actually filmed a video explaining my comings and goings of the last 2 months, BUT HAHAHA ...for some reason my camera audio didn't work! Some of you might know that along with my crazy new schedule, I've had technical difficulties with my darn camera! Anywho, maybe I'll have to buy a new video camera and film it again or something ???
Good news is I was still able to take a snap shot of my latest project....
It's for a wedding I'm going to tonight. I can see that my lighting isn't the best here, so I hope you can see that I blinged up the bride's shoes and I came up with the sentiment myself. The couple is really cute and funky and I think this card is just their style. I hope they like it :) I used the Tie the Knot Cart and the Paisley Embossing Folder, some hemp and the silver hearts I got from the brides section at Michael's.
I've got more projects in the works, so stayed tuned :)
