14 Dec CreativePopUpCards 1 year Anniversary!
Hi Everyone! It's been one year and one day since CreativePopUpCards was born. Sorry I've been MIA this past month. Things have been pretty hectic for me because of the holidays, getting ready for the new baby and work. Well, it's been an exciting year for me. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has subscribed to my website and who have followed me this past year. All the positive comments have helped keep me going. I've made many friends while blogging and through facebook. I've also met many extremely talented paper artist/engineers whom I look up to.
I first made my online presence back on February 29th, 2008 when I put up my first video of my Kissing Couple card to show some family members. Then I started putting more of my work to show friends. Over the years I started to get subscribers and I didn't realize that there were that many people watching my videos. I finally decided last year to start a website to teach people how to make pop up cards. Over this past year, this website has consumed much of my spare time at night and on weekends. I've learned a lot about setting up websites and editing videos, but I still have a lot more to learn.
I want to thank a few people who helped me out in the beginning. First, I'd like to thank Kieun, a close friend of mine who really helped convince me to start a website. We started our websites together, his being a website to help first time dads (very appropriate for me right now). Also, I'd like to thank Carol, an incredible paper crafter, from Extreme Cards and Papercrafting, who promoted some of my designs from the beginning. She has great designs on her website also.
Moving forward, I hope to continue creating new designs this coming year. I have so many ideas overflowing in my head and just not enough time to make them. It's definitely going to be a challenge with a new member in my family. Thank you all again for visiting and supporting my website. I hope to bring many new designs in this upcoming new year.
