Applying to a DT call......

Have you ever done this? As it comes up to the final days, did you get these huge, "butterflies" all in your stomach and think....what have I done?

As you can probably figure out, I have applied for a DT spot on one of my favorite websites. I won't mention which one....because my "butterflies" will not allow it!

I am fairly new to this site and in the past few days, I have seen an influx of new people coming to the board and posting in the gallery. If they are going to stay, I say...wonderful! But, how many of them will just leave once the decisions are made?

Well, I am there to stay! There are so many wonderful, friendly people on this site that I have already met and I believe there are many more that I am destined to meet!

Are these "butterflies" normal? Leave me a comment & let me know what you think!!

Some Photos of My Other Obsession!! Enjoy!!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Here is a sampling of some of my babies that have bloomed this year!

I had a couple questions about how long it takes from seed to bloom, so I will address that here. Generally it takes two years from seed to bloom. However, I had 1 to bloom this year that I planted the seed in June, 2006...that is less than 1 year!

I am so hyped!!!

My other passion..besides scrapbooking!! have caught me!! The past couple of days I have pretty much neglected my scrapbook stuff and been in my yard working. I don't really think it's work!!

I love flowers!! NO, I really love flowers, especially daylilies! I love daylilies soooo much that I hybridize them and grow them from seed!

Monday & Tuesday that is what I have been doing! I have planted over 100 daylily seeds of different crosses that I made last summer! I will soon be the proud parent of many more daylily babies!! Isn't that fantastic?

If you love flowers leave me a comment and tell me what kinds of flowers you love!!

ATC - Artist Trading Cards

Ever done any of these?

I haven't and I have actually signed up for a swap for these things!! I have feverishly been trying to learn exactly what I am supposed to do in order to get these things made.

It turns out...there are many different ways to create ATC's! So, there in lies the problem. Is there a right & wrong way or is anything goes, okay? If you know the answer to this question...please post a comment & let me know!!

Anyway, they are so cute!! I see a new obsession coming on! I want to collect a whole bunch of them.

As soon as I actually get one made, I will post it here for everyone to see my very first creation!

Wednesday, May 16, 2007's Lucky 7 Contest

Anybody else joining in the fun of this contest? Call me crazy....but, I am 'throwing my hat' into the ring with everyone else! Why not?

So, I won't be posting any layouts until I've decided which ones will be entered because I REALLY don't want to break any of the rules. You wouldn't want me to, now would you??

I've been scrapping since the early 1990's, but two months ago, I started submitting to contests. I figured, I have just as much possibility as anyone else. We never really know what the judges are looking for! So, it is anybody's game!!

Leave a comment and let me know if you are 'throwing your hat' into the contest!
