what are you Amy? Ummm. I'm Amy and if you know me then you know my daily lifestyle is completely dull, unglorified, but yet filled with fun and usually a little whimsy. So where am I on the spectrum? I don't even know anymore. I think it's a fine act trying to balance life at times. We all wear so many hats. Whether it be parent, boss, friend, partner, etc. Don't you think at times it's amazing how complex we truly are? I am amazed by God's ability to make each one of us unique. I have this crazy vision of him sprinkling genes like a fine sand on his children that makes them whom they are. One tiny granule can make the difference.
Over at MMFY, there's a cool contest going on about simple simplicity or embellishment overload. It kinda started because I said, "I am bringing simple back." and yeah it was to JT's tune. There hangs my head in shame. But more importantly, why would I say this? Because I have seen so much building up with paper crafts that I wondered if one could go back to a simple format. I know some people remember when there were stickers and paper only. Now the choices are endless to what goes and it appears that the industry will continue to make new embellishments because the demand is so high. But, where do I fit in? Some people have a particular style. I used to think I like the simple look. Then I went through a stage where my cards were so bumpy and heavy they did not fit in envies and had to be sent via cushioned packages. Just as style changes and the old becomes new again, I am attempting to return back. To simple that is. Wish me luck because the example I am getting ready to show you is not simple. I made a few cards for Paper Crafts that are simple and it was difficult to not load them up. I think the magazines don't want these highly complicated cards. They want easy instructions and end results in less than 30 minutes. So I am going to try and bring simple back to my style.
