Greeting cards as a hobby

Decided this morning to gather pictures of all the greeting cards that have been made. The goal was to post them on "Interest" portion of our family website. What started out simply and for some relaxing fun has turned out to be a fun hobby, but costly! One whole room has been converted to the "craft" room to house all the papers, Cricut, Copic markers, ribbon, stamps, glitter, embossing powder and I could go on. I'm just glad those who receive the cards are appreciative.

Goal accomplished! Hope that you'll take the time to view the slide show of more than 115 cards and countless gift card holders. Be happy to make one for you if you are interested.

At one point, I was going to open an Etsy shop, however, there is a cost: $.20 just to list one item per month. Will not be sinking more money into my hobby!

Christmas Dinner 2012

Cannot believe that it has been one whole year since my last posting. This is our family picture taken last Sunday (Dec. 23, 2012) following our Christmas dinner.
Pictured in the front row are Lexie Watson, Xander Maniaci, Rob Maniaci, Sophia Amador and Michael Amador. In the second row are Kathy Watson (me), Haley Watson, Jill Watson, Al Amador, Karen Amador and John Watson. In the back are Marston Watson, Erik Watson and Dionne Maniaci.
I'm committed to doing better in 2013-at least a post following family events, return from travel, major web development accomplishment, etc. As a project manager, my last task in the project plan will be to post on the blog!
Merry Christmas!
