So far, 2016 has been trying, to say the least.  Recovery of my thumb surgery took way longer than I expected, and I wasn't able to get back to work until February {from October}.  At least I didn't have to travel during the blizzard {except to go down my sister's for about a week - actually got there before the snow came, and had a week of working on another Wedding album for my niece!}
Lost my mother-in-law in March.  Alzheimer's is terrible disease and I know she suffered.  One can only hope they find a cure soon.

Last.... but not least, I had a flood downstairs in April.  It was a mess.  Carpet up. Two foot of wall removed and it took them two months to put it straight. 

OK, enough of my woes.  I haven't been able to work on my polymer clay with my thumb issues {it's still not 100% ...... I know, I said no more woes!}  So, I've spent time trying to perfect my paper crafting skills.  Like many people, I scour You-Tube for how to videos.  There are so many DIY projects out there.  For some reason, I like to build things.  One example are the mini albums.  I have many "in the works", and hope to get them finished soon.

Another project I like to build are desk organizers.  All right, so I've only made one so far.  I'm pretty proud of it though.

 Next, I am going to make a storage organizer for my stamping inks and accessories.  Once again, I think I will be looking for ideas on Your-Tube.  I have already found several I like, made with foam board.  I may even do a video myself, once I come up with a design.

Til next time, stay safe and be happy.
