It's my blogoversary!
It's been a year since I got involved making cards for OWH and publishing them to my blog. It's nice to be able to look back and see how much better my cards are in general compared to when I started. Check out my first post here. It's been fun to make some blog friends and acquaintances over this year. Thanks for following, reading, and commenting on my blog. Here's to many more years of crafting!
Here's a picture of one of the first cards I made for OWH. This card was a single piece of cardstock folded in half (and not particularly thick, either), with a rectangle of designer cardstock glued on. I think the ink might have bled through to the back, too, but I didn't know the wonders of layering papers onto a new card base yet. I would never send this card now! I bet it ended up in triage. So glad to see how much I've learned. :)
Compare that with this card made recently:
Not really the same, is it? Even the photography's better thanks to what I learned from OWH about building a light box and using good lighting.
Cards shipped to OWH (as of 12/5/11): 1695
