Some busy cards

I have decided, at least for the moment, to continue blogging even if it means I'm unlikely to get any comments - sigh! - I admit I'm jealous of people who have lots of comments.

Although the info on the side-bar says I'm a calligrapher and mixed media artist, but at the moment I don't seem to have the capacity to do much. Twin boys who at the moment are seriously pushing the boundaries leave me tired and with very little capacity for creativity. Add to this a 40,000 word thesis that is going along at a snail's pace and I'm thankful for stamping and card making. I can finish a card in 30 minutes and feel like I have achieved something creative and that makes me very happy. So to some cards.

This first one is a bit of a departure from my normal style, but that's okay. The style is a case from Kristina Werner (one of my fav cardmakers) and although I'm not unhappy with it, it's a bit busier than I normally like.

The second one is also a case from an SU demonstrator Sue Rowe, although she used ovals and circle and I have used a sizzix tag-die. Either way it's a cute card.

I hope you like these cards and I hope that I get at least one comment. Till next time . . .

Okay . . .

 . . . so after posting about the comments from porn spammers, the only comments I received were fromt the said spammers - I think this is trying to send me a message!! So after doing some research on blogger help I have decided to make comments available only to members of this blog. What that probably means is that I won't get any comments at all, but hey at least I won't have to constantly delete Tawainese/Chinese porn links from my blog. If that doesn't work then I'll be shutting my blog down and rethinking what I do.

blog hijacked

Yes I know I haven't blogged for a while, but at the moment I'm trying to decide whether to keep blogging or start a new one. Currently my blog has been hijacked by Tawainese porn sites that leave me comments linking to their porn sites. I have moderated my comments, but I see no way of getting rid of them other than this. It got me thinking that what does it say about my blog if the only people who can be bothered to leave a comment are porn sites!! So at the moment I'm not sure what to do. I like blogging, but I also like to believe that someone out there reads it. I could I suppose start a new one and hope that the porn sites leave me alone.

If anyone does read this blog and does know how to get rid of these sites I'd be grateful if you leave a real comment!
