Diana, I love your blog. It is my daily fix. I think it would be nice to list in your categories The name of your stamp set used.In the category for that particular stamp set you would store all cards, etc. that you used that set for. That way we can see a variety of ideas for a particular stamp set. Keep up the great work with your blog.
Elaine M. Wilson says
I just wanted to tell you that I enjoy your blog. What I enjoy seeing are the funny cards you make. The one's that you make with your own punch line. Your sense of humor is pretty funny, you have a contagious smile, and I think you would be a fun person to know! You have a fun blog….keep up the good work!
aren't you just the sweetest thing!! I would love to see you do a video on watercoloring. I love the look, but do not do it very well. Would you be willing to showcase ALL the different ways to watercolor, like pastels, reinkers, blender pens, aqua pens, etc?
Terry Molineux says
Wow you have covered really all the bases it's really hard to come up with something BUT, I would like you to redo watercoloring but with SU products . I went out and bout the Samsodor and stumps and now I don't know what to do with it! LOL I do that all the time. I see someone's project love it buy all the products and then I forget what I bought it for…..so I would like to stay with my SU stuff..markers, reinkers and AquaPainters…
Thanks for your great blog it really is the best and I look forward to your stories and most of all your ideas….

I would love to see more of your fabulous tutorials. They are so inspiring-where do thsoe ideas all come from. Does the owl whisper them to you??
Miss you guys and the fab monthly cards swaps at Rhonda's meetings.
Theresa P says
I think it would be cool to have a weekly(?)segment of "anything but a card". Show off your many talents with picture frames, bags, tags, boxes, calendars, ….. Inspire your readers to think outside the stamp case. Oh..and more pictures of Toby!
Thanks for taking the time to post everyday. It's great!
Karen Monger says
Diana, I love your blog and visit it daily. I would love to see more of Edward Cullen on your site. OOOHHHHH he's so cute. Ok back to stamping how about showing us how you make some of the harder cards like you did with the faux metal tin ceiling. Or making really simple and easy cards. You can also do more humorous cards.

Your blog is awesome! It's the first site I go to every morning! Your funny cards make me laugh and bring sunshine to my day. I appreciate that you have such a wonderful sense of humor. I'm fairly new to the stamping world. I would like to see the name of the stamp set and measurements. Keep creating!
I know this won't help you much but anything you do is GREAT!
I love your tutorials … any way you do them.
Kim Burmeister says
Di, I love when you show us the techniques you do for your classes. I learn something every time. More techniques, please!
Barbara Dykhouse says
Diana, I think you already have an amazing blog! I look forward to my daily updates, and I really love your humor. I also love it when you share what is going on in your backyard with the creatures you see. But I think my favorite is when you teach me new techniques. I'd love to have more of those, and maybe a sidebar to store them in. If I didn't live on the East Coast, I'd be at all of your technique lovers classes!
Sally Nusbaum says
I also enjoy your humor. The funny cards like Ooops Poops and the Chocolate Bunnies with no ears and no butt made me laugh out loud. Thank you for sharing!

I have followed your blog for several months now and I find myself consistently coming back to it for great ideas. Your cards and posts are the best!!! I also love all your stories, especially of all the animals, birds, etc. The baby bunny was so, so sweet and I was amazed to see you holding a hummingbird! You are a wonderful demonstrator and seem like such a great person. All I can say for suggestions is keep doing what you are already doing – it's the best. Thank you for all the time and effort you put in to sharing your talent! Michelle (email@example.com)

debbie essay says
I just love your funny/quirky cards….No one else does them EXCEPT you. I can't get enough of the funny ideas you come up with using Stampin' Up stamps, which are usually very quiet and kind of serious. So I vote for more funny ideas with Stampin Up items :0) Thanks for all the hard work and the chance to win some blog candy.
Oh how I wish I could win. Love visiting your blog. I love all the creative things you come up with…but you also crack me up. Let us not forget, we are both Twi-freaks!

Diana, I really enjoy reading your blog. I have to say that my favorites are those that include a technique or a tutorial. They inspire me. I wish they were all listed under one link for quick reference so that I can see the one's I may have missed.

Kath Ricks says
Oh, I like the idea of by stamp set that Carmen proposed. I like your wacky cards. But I like the way you explain how to do the techniques you are using, anything on fun folds? Different ways to fold paper for interest on cards.

I've been reading your blog ever since I found it and it reminds me to smile every day. Your creative ideas are an inspiration to all of us. I wish I could live closer so I could attend your classes, but it's a bit far from Ohio to commute. You have such lovely bows and I'd like to see how you do it. Mine are always crooked and not very nice!. Keep up the great work
Rebecca S. says

Good morning Diana,
I agree with the others you are a daily read for me. Not only do I love your ideas I also love your "daily news". The only thing I can think of that I would want to see is just more of your work!! The santa you made with the pillowbox die is one of my all time favs!! Just keep doing what you are doing, I never tire of your blog.
Thanks so much for sharing with us all.
I love visiting your blog, because not only do I get my dose of inspiration (paper related) but I hear your wonderful stories which I love.
I love tutorials, but truly enjoy the daily cards fixex, so continue on and keep them coming, stories included.
Jan B. says
Diana, It's a hoot to stop by and see your creativeness. Also, CONGRATS to "OH CANADA" on the golds won so far! Heartbreaking about Joannie's Mum! But she did great on the short programme.
I hopefully got the English correct for you.
I really enjoy the dimesional feel to cards, like the dioramas and shutters. Do you have anything like that up your sleeve?!
Thanks for what you do!
Martha Beck says
More 3-D projects. You are so creative and come up with the cutest projects! Calendar, address book, recipe book, floewr pots, picture frames, decorated canvas, felt projects from the big shot.
Hmmm, LOVE your blog and your sense of humor (of course your funny, you're a fellow Canadian!). Well, what I'd like to see is your stamp room and how you organize your stuff. I am currently in the process of doing my own and really enjoy seeing other's room. You can follow my adventure on my blog…
Juliana Bibas says
I love your blog and especially love the cards that are a little "off" like the two bunnies missing various anatomy parts and the poopy ice cream. Ha! I always have a giggle when you post those things.
I always enjoy all your cards, so keep up the lovely work! Thanks for posting–I learn a lot from your layouts and descriptions.
Pam B. says
I love your fun ideas and thinking outside the box!! I would like to see how you do your shading and what colors do you use, etc. Also, I know it's kinda basic, but bow tying, expecially when you're using the jumbo grommets and other ways you can work the ribbon into a slot punch (not sure how to describe). Thanks for the chance at your blog candy!

Mary Lou says
I love your blog for so many reasons and have to check it each day or I feel like something is missing. You make me laugh and you provide great ideas, too. You have an amazing talent for watercoloring and I would love it if you could share more written tips and/or videos on how to watercolor. You make it so realistic and I just struggle when I try to watercolor – although I love to do it and I LOVE the look. Thanks for all the hard work you put into your blog and thanks for the opportunity to win some blog candy!! YOU ROCK!!
