Donna, you're right, a writer shouldn't have to feel like they have to "pick one" creative endeavor, which is the writing! LOL That's the way I have felt about doing cross-stitch, but it's refreshing to think different kinds of creativity help each other out! I actually think I like cross-stich BECAUSE it's a bit "logical and predictable" though, unlike the writing. LOL

Melissa, I used to do counted cross-stitch all the time! I loved it, but had to quit because my eyes were having a hard time switching between the pattern and the cloth. But now I want to get back to it. And I agree about it being "logical and predictable", which is one reason I loved it -- there was something comforting about that, and I loved seeing the picture gradually appear. Oh boy -- now you've got me started! LOL

Mae Clair

I didn't know you owned a rubber stamp store! Is the adorable card at the top one of your creations? I love it!

I remember seeing something in a previous post that you enjoyed creating cards. I think an online store would be a wonderful undertaking!

I think creative people often have more than one outlet they find fulfilling, and it's wonderful that you blend the two. I enjoy working with graphic images and like to do digital scrapbooking. Sometimes it's fun to set writing aside and just immerse myself in that for a while. I'll be looking forward to seeing more of your creations!

Donna Cummings

Mae, yes, that is one of my cards. In fact, it was the very first card that was published in a rubber stamping magazine, and I was so thrilled. Luckily I have a picture of it, because I had to send them the original. LOL I hope to have pics of more recent creations, but I'm finding that taking decent pics is probably the hardest part of this online story endeavor!

I'm intrigued by digital scrapbooking, but not sure I have any talent (read: patience) for it. So I'm in awe of you being able to do that. I think it's a great way to let your brain work out writing problems while you're immersed in visual things. (Which is why I'm looking at potential cover pics right now. LOL)

Quantum

Are there no bounds to this lady's talent!

Will you be making cards with a view to selling them, either the designs for others to copy and sell, or with your own on-line shop?

The coffee bean design is lovely.
I reckon there might be some interesting book covers in this as well. LOL

Donna Cummings

LOL, Quantum -- there are indeed bounds, many MANY bounds! I can't draw. I can't sing. I won't be auditioning for a dance show. :)

My plan is to sell my cards on Etsy, which is an online shop for crafty-type people. I like doing it, and people seem to like what I create, and I've got a ton of materials here which need to be used. LOL I hadn't thought about book covers, though -- I don't think I have the right kind of papers and stamps for romance covers!
