50th Youtube Subscriber Giveaway Contest and Studio Room Update

Hello everyone!!

I just finished announcing the winnners of the Artful Flight, Tim Holtz Stamp Set, by Stamper's Anonymous and I would like to congratulate oneandonlygrand and beastybunny1, who are subscriber's of my Youtube Channel Lace And Metal. They both won a set of these stamps and I hope they contact me by January 27th, 2011, the deadline. You can both contact me via the email me button on my blog.

I went ahead and gave away 2 sets of these because I was closing in to almost 100 subscribers so soon I felt I might as well have 2 winners. Hope you both enjoy them! =) <3

My studio is coming along. I had to go to the doctor yesterday so that ate up half of my day, of course. So I didn't get much done today. I am planning on hitting it hard this weekend though. Can't wait to get some great projects out to you!

Love and Hugs,
The Distressed Crafter

In My Time of Dying


This is the title to a song by a band I've listened to since I was a child and I never thought I would actually relate it to this subject but my Dad died 2 hours before I got home to see him. My heart is heavy and I feel devastated. I was going to CHA but I've changed my plans and I'm just going to be home getting my new house and studio in order for the coming year. I feel like I have lost my best friend and the only person in my family who ever loved me unconditionally but I will go on like I've always done and I will survive, yet another title to a song I listened to as a child....

Life does things to us that we can't explain and things happen to us that must happen but hurt us nevertheless. I hope that the art that I create this year will reflect my true feelings and represent the "real" me that I want all the people who know me, to see. I hope all of you have a wonderful New Year and that each and every one of you feels at the end of the year that things are just a little better, at least; instead of being worse. 2010 was not a very kind year to me and 2011 didn't start off very well either but I look forward to new challenges and I hope that I can share some knowledge with all of you that you might not have otherwise known and that I continue to learn everyday, from all of the wonderful videos and blogs that I come across.

With much love and hugs,
The Distressed Crafter

It is a sad day.....

Hey everyone. I will be gone for 1-2 weeks. My dad has taken a sudden turn for the worse and I am flying to Texas this morning. If you are the type that prays please keep me and my family in yours. My dad is 80 and has lived a long full life and has been ready to go for awhile now. I am very heartbroken and sad because my dad was always my safe place in my family and I am losing that. As soon as thing normalize for me and I can get back home I have a bunch of fun things planned. I have a huge room to decorate....
