Something New Sunday

Good morning!  I've got a little something new and fun to share with you today.  This is a first for me, and by first, I mean my very first video!  Woohoooo!!  I had a lot of people ask me about tutorials and teaching techniques for watercoloring and Copic marker coloring at and since I was at CHA last week, and after a lot of thought and soul searching, I decided to give it a whirl.  This is my first attempt at anything like this and OMG!!  This technologically challenged country girl has a lot to learn!!  It only took me the better part of a day, just to get the basics down.  THEN, there's the editing and adding of all the little goodies and pretties.  I have faith that I"ll get better at this, so please be kind enough to bear with me.  Hopefully it won't take me too long to become comfortable with this, and then we can get on to the good stuff, like coloring with Copics, and getting inky fingers.  THAT'S what I really like!!!  So here's my first attempt.  It's a video of my tiny craft space.  I love looking at other people's craft rooms, and I hope you enjoy seeing what's  in mine.  This is  just the tip of the iceberg, because I have every nook and cranny in this little room crammed full of crafting toys, but this will give you the general idea. 


Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll see you again soon, and in the mean time, I wish you lots of happy stamping!

Woohooo Lorie!! It's SO NICE to finally 'see' you! This was a fantastic video and I don't think you said the word 'Ummm' once! I'd probably say it all the time! :) I'm still envious of your craft room, even if it is small, at least it's a room! :) Hugs, Sandra

Kathy Czygan said...

Great Job Lorie! I enjoyed every minute of your 1st video! Loved seeing where you create all your beautiful projects! I have a tiny room also. I just roll from one place to another in my chair. I like that it's small....that way everything's easy to find! Can't wait to see more of your videos! Thanks for sharing your room with us! Kathy :)

Jackie said...

Congratulations on your first videao. Lovely to see your face and hear your voice. Great little craft space and so tidy. The trouble with having a bigger space is that you fill it up and still only have a small space to work in :o)

Oh Lorie you need to come to my house and help me organize!! Wait...after you teach me how to color that is! I have a huge room which could have 4-5 people scrapping stations in here but I can barely get in here. Yes, Hi My Name is Lisa and I am a Messy Messy Scrapaholic!

Jessica said...

What a lovely little scrapin stampin space you have! I use the back end of our livingroom. It's about 6 feet wide and about 4 or 5 feet from the back wall. I'm my mom's care giver, so it's perfect for us. I enjoyed your video, and will be back for more as they come. I'm now a follower. Thanks for sharing

kadie said...

Lorie,
I am so amazed at how much you have, how organized it is and I am calling myself an unofficial stalker! If I can learn how to use Copic pens and keep a small space organized from you i will be totally at your beck and call!

Can't wait for more!
