Black and White and "Read" All Over

I just love the theme of our challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu this week.  We were challenged to create a project using only black and white and "Text".  I thought this was a very creative challenge, the type that forces you to think differently about what you are designing.  Okay, I admit my project is pretty expected and not at all out of the box, but I am convinced that some of you will come up with some pretty amazing designs.  Anyway, I hope you will join in the challenge.

The small book was supposed to have open pages, but I got a little "glue happy" and accidentally glued the entire book shut.  Oh well,  :D) 
I know my pages don't look white, but that is because a put TH Old Paper Distress Ink  on some of them.   And the other was the only newsprint pp in my stash so I used it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Never Forget Kindness

This post is not for any challenge, it is just a few words I would like to share with my fellow crafters!

I love being on design teams.  I love doing challenges and chatting with my teammates.  But, on a few rare occasions, I have found that some people tend to forget that we are all volunteers on these teams.  It would different if we were working for Spellbinder's or Sizzix or any of the large companies, but most of us are not and it is very sad when Owners and DT coordinators lose sight of this.

I just want to remind all of us who are "volunteering" in leadership roles that this is supposed to be fun and if you find it necessary to demean other crafters, then maybe you should examine where you are right now.  It could be that the fun has gone out of it for you and not for everybody else.

This is a hobby, not a job, so please, let us Never Forget to be Kind to one Another.
