Hello Everyone! My inbox has just been flooded with questions from new friends on my facebook groups and newsletters lately. I try my best to answer each and every question but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day or even the week. As you can imagine, many of these are the same questions. So …. I’m going to start this post and answer as many of those “repeat” questions as possible. I’ll update the post as new duplicate questions come in so please do check back from time to time.
- What is new? or What are you working on next? – The best way to find this out is to sign up for my weekly newsletter. All new posts are noted in the email newsletter with clickable links that will take you right to that specific post. Newsletters are sent out once a week and you can subscribe or unsubscribe at anytime.
- Why do I have to register for your blog to participate or see some things? – I’m not sure why some have an issue with this as it’s a fairly common thing these days for many blogs. But the reason behind it is simply to protect the site and keep spammers and such out. I have software that protects the blog and registration is a requirement for this software to work. Registration is free, you won’t get all kinds of emails by registering, and the perks are that you can participate and leave comments or ask questions.
- I’ve noticed a lot of posts on the blog that have to do with miniatures. Have you stopped creating journals and other paper crafts? – This is sort of a multiple answer question. This past year and a bit before I’ve been more focused on the minis more than anything else. I think after creating digital things constantly for probably ten years or more gave me brain fry and I just needed a break to recharge. If you noticed the “For Your Bookshelf” link on the front page you probably discovered that I also wrote a Cozy Mystery book: Murder at the Knife’s Edge. This book was running around in my head for years and one day I just woke up and told hubs …. “I’m going to write a book today!” He grinned but replied: “Well ok, go for it!” and I did just that. Six months or less later I had finished the book and was learning how to self-publish it. The book is now available on Amazon as a kindle book. Needless to say, for that period of time I did nothing else. The last reason had to do with my PC dying and it being months before I could manage to get it replaced then to try and dig up everything I lost on it. Can you say Backup??? Maybe more then once lol. Lastly . . . NO I’ve not stopped making digital art and other crafts, not completely anyway. Now that our home remodel is done and my office has been set back up, you will start to see some new crafty things begin to show up on the blog and in my Etsy shop.
- Do you have cutting files for your digital journal books or plans to offer any in the future? Short and sweet answer is YES! Longer answer …. most of these were lost in the pc crash but I’m digging up what I can find now. I’ll also be creating cut files for as many of my journals as possible. Just keep watch on the blog or newsletter for updates!
- You used to have freebies on your blog. What happened to them? Again, due to PC crash I’ve lost most of those. I will be bringing some found ones back and will be adding new things very soon.
- Your blog is huge and I have trouble finding things. Is there an index anywhere? – Yes, there is a lot of content on the blog and yes, there is an index of sorts. If you click the “What’s New” image under the header area it will take you to a visual index. This covers the main areas of the blog and will show the three most recent posts in those areas. On the other hand, if you use those menu links (text links under the header image) on the main home page … you can easily get to anyplace in the site. The links with the little down arrows have drop down menus leading to sub-menus (other areas).
So …. those are the main questions for now. Again, I’ll update as needed. If you don’t see what you are looking for here just drop me a line anytime or visit the “Q&A” page and leave a comment!
Have a crafty day!
