Personal Note -

I'm sure all you peeps that stop by often have noticed a lot of mistakes in my tutorials the past few weeks from spelling errors to a tag sitting right in the middle of the tutorial - Really???   ***shaking my head again with self disgust at such a horrible error***  In light of this last mistake I just found I'm going to do something I don't normally do - post my excuse...  

There has been a death in our family recently and trying to deal with the short illness and many long tips back and forth, estate issues, etc etc my head hasn't exactly been on straight.  Please forgive me.  I'm trying to correct the errors as I find them.  Feel free to email me any of them you might see.  I do need you peeps to keep me in line!  I don't usually do such shoddy work and could just slither under my chair when I find them...the latest is that tag sitting right in the middle of the tutorial.  ***again, shaking my head***

As always, I do enjoy hearing from you all and getting tags to place in my gallery to proudly show off.  I hope you'll be back often (despite the mistakes) and promise to get my act together.

Hugs
Bev
