Emojis are helpful

Hello!  I know my blog has been rather neglected these days so I was kind of excited when I saw I had a comment.  Wow, who would comment on my blog when I have nothing new to share?  My excitement was short lived of course because the comment was:

"Because Eric Carle's original artwork wasn't good enough?" on What do you see?

Hmmm, what was the purpose of this comment?  To be nasty?  Sarcastic?  Snide?  I can't tell, maybe it needs some kind of mean faced emoji next to it.  Then I would totally get it.

Or maybe I am totally wrong and this was just a light hearted, fun comment that needs an LOL next to it?

Anyway, my crafty blog is public and I guess that leaves it open to some mean spirited comments though this is the first one I've gotten besides the occasional do you want to work at home kind of spam.

Thank you to the commenter for taking the time to leave this thoughtful comment.  It has made my day!  (Insert sarcastic emoji here).

Thank you to my crafty friends for visiting today.  (Insert grateful emoji here).
Sorry I don't have anything pretty to share.  I've been in a crafty slump lately.  (Insert sad emoji here).

P.S. I am not tech savvy enough to find the appropriate emojis to insert into this post.  (Insert confused emoji here).

Sorry that someone one left a puzzling, possibly negative comment. I get weird comments sometimes and even some in languages I can't even recognize...hahaha! maybe they are saying something mean but I can't understand them.LOL! Love your emoji come back! I have been trying to send positive comments to you about your last two posts. But for some reason I cannot get through (just thought you should know in case others are having problems too). Your cards are very clever and artistic. I also adore pandas and so I was thrilled to see your lovely creations. Don't let some random comment upset you because I'm sure you know in your heart that you are very talented and you inspire many of us in blogland. Hugs to you, my friend!

First of all, I didn't know those faces were called emojis! I'm like behind the times! But probably another reason why I wouldn't want my kids on social media or whatever, I think random people feel too free to write mean things that they probably wouldn't say to someone's face! Or if it wasn't meant to be mean, it didn't really come across that way when you can't see someone's face and tell if they're joking! All kinds of problems out here recently with publicly elected officials writing inflammatory comments on forums under pseudonyms...and then eventually getting found out... Anyhow, don't put too much stock in anonymous comments, just delete anything that sounds rude!

Sorry to hear about the crafting slump. I hope you'll continue to search for inspiration because it takes just one picture or shopping spree to get me in the mood...haha. Hugs to you and I know you'll be back to crafting soon. You always have such cute stuff and I adore and look forward to your posts!! You cracked me up with your (emojis). I have no idea how to do those either!

Hey Eva! :)
I'm sure if Mr. Eric Carle saw the post he would be honored to have you create something similar that helps others. As Cheryl and Lynn say don't take stock in what that individual said just delete it.
Love your come back with the emojis too. Way to go!
I'm missing my mojo too and trying other things to start it up again. Sigh, not so easy when all I want to do is watch tv. hahaha! "wink" 'wink"

Someone had to go pretty far back for that post, but personally I think Eric Carle would have been honored to have been your inspiration! *happy face*
The book is adorable and keeps with the theme of his book.
*snarly face* Buggers to the nay sayers.

I've lost my mojo too, but I blame mine on Netflix because of binge watching too many shows. Hours and hours of SOA, Orange is the New Black, and Breaking Bad has left me wide-eyed and still in shock....along with a whole new set of language skills! LOL!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
