|View toward road - my shed and|
I haven't gotten any crafting done but the snow was fun to be out in for a little while. Worked muscles that I forgot I had.
Today I received an email from YouTube that said my channel will become ineligible for monetization in one month due to lack of views and because I don't have 1K subscribers. I am planning on combining my crafting and FlossTube channels - Kelly Bell and Kelly Bell Stitches into one channel. My cross stitching videos will be clearly labeled as "FlossTube" like they are now - just the channel name will be Kelly Bell. I am also hoping to get back to my crafting and creating and making a lot more videos along those veins. - if you watch any of my videos on Kelly Bell or Kelly Bell Stitches, I hope that you will take the time to go and click the subscribe button on Kelly Bell and maybe watch a couple of my videos. It would help me out a lot - thank you so very much.
Life has changed a lot for me in the last nine years or so and I hope to keep it changing. I always select a word for the year and for 2018, my word of choice is DETERMINED. I am determined to have a good life - to enjoy myself, to enjoy other people and to embrace changes and new experiences. Here's to 2018.
My next video will be a finish of my Christmas Journal that I stared in December of 2017. (I am also determined to get ahead of the curve in 2018.) I am also planning a short tutorial on the corners that I made in my Denim Junk Journal. My plan is to sign up for more swaps on the Junk Journal Junkies Facebook Group and to have more videos about the journals I am making. I am also determined to keep my blog current.
As far as FlossTube videos go, I am planning to keep a schedule of an update video every week - on Tuesday. I did a video on Tuesday this week (Yesterday) but due to editing and some uploading quirks (being kind here) I am still waiting for the video to finish "processing". In the video I show two cross stitching projects that I have finished this week. Going forward, I am planning to better document the stitching process and keep my blog and Instagram Account (@klbellisima) much better updated. Here are a couple of pictures of the finishes:
My second finish is the first part of the year long, mystery stitch-a-long, being hosted by Brittany,
of Ingleside Imaginarium. You can find this stitch-a-long on the Ingleside Imaginarium Etsy shop at:
I've had a really great stitching week and will be better documenting all of my progress going forward. I am going to have to really be determined to keep a schedule. LOL.
So, that's it for today. I will leave you with a couple of photos of my furry friends - they keep me comforted and we keep each other in love. Take care - with love - K
Wally (Wolowitz) and Coonie (What can I say?) I couldn't corral the other four cats...
Rowdy - a very calm and loving girl, nothing like her name.
