All Crafters and Scrappers...Welcome to my Blog!

Welcome to my Crafting/Scrapping Blog scrappers and crafters everywhere! I am so thrilled to finally get my Blog started and begin sharing information with all of you. My intent is to make video tutorials of all kinds of scrapping and crafting projects and techniques, product reviews, and other special content. I want to inspire, educate, share, and amuse you so that you never leave my Blog feeling unfulfilled. I want to build a community of artists who become friends as well as inspirations to each other. I hope that you will subscribe to my Blog and begin to share my journey with me. It will be an exciting journey, but a journey with ups and downs, as we all have in our lives. I invite you to share your ups and downs with me as I share mine with you. It will be an honor to follow along in your artistic endeavors as I share mine with you. I encourage you to share your creations with me. I always love to see my fellow crafters works of art!

GIFT-AWAY AFTER FIRST 50 SUBSCRIBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since I am very new to blogging and Youtube, when I obtain my first 50 subscribers I will be having a gift-away on my Blog and my Youtube Channel, LaceAndMetal.  I have not decided what the gift will be yet, but will announce it in the near future. My Blog and my Youtube channel have become a very important part of my life and I hope you will join me and tell your friends to join as well. 

Soon, I will begin sharing my creative projects, product reviews, hauls and other exciting things on both my Blog and Youtube. I can't wait to get started on this and my first video should be up in early January 2011. I really hope you like my videos and that I can teach you things that you have not learned yet or put a spin on some things you may have already learned.

Now just a bit about me....

My name is Kellye, I have been married for almost 13 years to Jim. I have one son, Chris and two step-sons, Julian and Ethan. I live in northern California, but my home is the State of Texas. I'm no spring chicken anymore, but I'm not an old hag either. =) I do tend to hang around with people younger than I am and I do not act my age unless the situation calls for it. *sigh* I will post a picture of myself soon. I am going to try and schedule a shoot soon so I can get a recent picture that is decent. :) I am a retired respiratory therapist and stay at home while my husband works very hard to make a living for us.
I have health issues that prevent me from working, so it's a great blessing that he is able to make enough income for me to be able to stay at home and enjoy my art/crafting.

I also enjoy reading, gardening, travel, all kinds of education, my yorkies Gabby and Bayleigh, sailing,
teaching scrapbooking to others, learning about all kinds of products and how they can be used, cooking,
and sewing.

I also want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday and a wonderful New Year in 2011! The new year dawns bright and I have high hopes for it to be one of the best years of my life.

Kellye the Distressed Crafter
