My Grandma's Teacups Scrapbooking and Craft Supplies: Instagram Intimidates Me.

I am embarrassed to say that the Instagram platform is a real challenge for me. I understand how to post my pictures but I am really finding it hard to connect with people the same way I can on Twitter and Facebook. It seem ironic to me as so many of my friends and colleagues rave about how they love instagram. I want to love it too. If you have any tips or tricks for Instagram that you could share with me I would really appreciate it. If you came to the blog today looking for crafty inspiration or to see a product review, sorry.I am working on a few projects in the studio as well as a couple of tutorials that I am going to have up on youtube soon.

Close To My Heart is an incredible company and I have loved being a consultant and supervisor during the past two years. In order to better support my clients however, I had to make the choice to give up my beloved Close To My Heart in order to offer a full craft product line. I am now able to offer customers a huge selection of items that have previously not been available in our area. So wish me luck as I begin this new adventure. Please feel free to stop by my online shop and look around.My Grandma's Teacups Craft Supply I only have the items that I have in the studio listed, but feel free to message me for pricing for all other supplies including knitting, sewing, papercrafts, painting, baking and more.
