Curt's Best Shots Slideshow

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


Hey all! This will be a short post because it is just a little announcement. I have been inundated with requests to do a tutorial on my diorama card from my last post (seen here). Many of the comments that were left for that post requested it and I had a ton of private emails asking if I would do one. I am so flattered that folks like yourselves who in my opinion are exceptionally talented want me to do a tutorial. I am honored! So, I will do one. It won't be a video, but a plain picture tutorial. I'm working on it now and it will be posted in the next day or two. I want to be sure I get it right and that it is as simple to follow as possible. So, be looking for it in the next couple of days. It's coming, and I thank you so much for asking me to do it!

Lastly for this post, I have again gotten the sweetest of compliments from 4 of you out there in the form of another award. You all 4 gave me the same award and I thank each of you so much for it. Karen at 6 Wacky Women, Michelle Ueligitone of Mushi's Creative Inspirations, Toni at Whimsical Thoughts and Marie of Aloha and Mabuhay. These women are super talented and I know most of you have visited their blogs because when I leave comments on their blogs I see a lot of your names. If you haven't seen them jump on over and take a look - great stuff to be found there! Here is the award. . .

It is hard to pick five to pass this on to. I always feel a little weird because I don't like to exclude anyone by picking others. On the other hand, I certainly don't want to offend those sweet people who sent it to me by not passing it on. The proverbial "rock and hard place" so to speak. Then you have to take into consideration that I've already seen this award on several people's blogs, so people I would pick already have it! So, I think the best thing to do is to accept it graciously with a statement that everyone I visit on a regular basis deserves this award so much more than me. And I humbly thank those who thought enough of me to give it to me. What I will do is nominate 3 more individuals for my award that I created a couple of months ago. I will post that in my next post after the tutorial post. I hope that is OK with everyone. I truly think you are all amazing.

OK, that's if for this quick post. Check back in the next couple of days and the tutorial will be there!

I'll see you all on your blogs.
