What I've Been Up To Lately!

Hey Everyone!  

I've been MIA for the last month or so and need to catch up on all my DominoART message reading.  So will be replying and commenting on a ton of posts over the next 2 days I'm sure ;-)

Anyway I just wanted to let you know about what I've been up to and share some advice that I just learnt the hard way!  I've been designing a lot of cards recently and have some that I'm really pleased with to share with you all.  I've also got some Domino related creations to share too but I've decided to submit my most recent artwork for publication so won't be able to share that one with you just yet I'm afraid.  But I promise to start uploading some eye candy over the next few days!

Last week I decided to enter the contest being held over at Blockheads website and have been busy designing a couple of entries.  Wednesday was the deadline to get them all submitted and early yesterday morning I was up and doing just that.  During my first submission upload I realized I didn't know the name of the Blockheads stamp I'd used so went off to get the name only to discover I couldn't find the stamp any where on the site!

Shock! Horror!  I discovered that some of the Blockheads stamps I'd used weren't on the site anymore and therefore no doubt discontinued.  I realized with dismay that that probably meant I've designed my creations with stamps that probably don't qualify for the contest - ear splitting scream!!!!

After some email discussion with Stacey of Blockheads I knew which ones were disqualified and literally spent one day re-creating my submissions that I'd spent about 5 days working on and got them all uploaded last night!  Phew, that was one whirlwind of a crafting session, LOL!

THEN...wait for it.....just after that I checked my email and discovered an announcement from Blockheads that the contest deadline had been extended until Friday - aaaaarrrrggghhhhh!

So the moral of my story is - make sure the stamps you're using for a contest
are still available BEFORE you start working on your submissions ;-)

So Stacey is busy still uploading my entries but one has shown up in the ATC section already.  I hope you'll all pop on over to the Blockheads website when it's time to vote and hopefully you'll like some of my creations enough to head some votes my way ;-)  You have to be a member of the Blockheads newsletter to be able to vote so you'll know when voting starts coz it will be in the newsletter!

Now I've got to go and tidy up my studio, it looks exactly like a whirlwind hit it yesterday, LOL!

Happy Stamping!
