Did you happen to notice a big ol' fish tank in the back of one of my last photos? I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned my first love on this blog. Long before I even knew what stickles were or that digital cutters even existed I had a passion to create.... however it was underwater worlds.
Another reason besides "The Germ From Hell" that I've been MIA lately was that I was busy setting up a new tank and transferring rock/fish/corals.
I've been keeping reef tanks for over 6yrs now. I started with a 24g all in one tank, then added a 50g which quickly transferred to a 70g. My tanks and inhabitants made the original move from MI to NJ with me back over 5yrs ago, and then this past year moved back to MI.
Not sure if any of you are interested so I'll try not to go to overboard on the photos (or will create a separate page or blog for them) but since my fish & corals are such an important part of my life I wanted to share them with you here too!
This is my 70g before our move, it's far to much of a hot mess right now to show you. I had sold a ton of coral before we moved so I'd have less to transport, then sadly I lost a ton with the move. I'm in the midst of getting it back to its former glory.
Southern Cricut Lady. It's another hybrid card using my Cricut & Cameo (printed digital papers with my Cameo to cut on the Cricut, scanned the "water" cut from my Cricut to import into the Cameo to do a print & cut for the internal part of the card. I wanted my fish bowl to be actually clear so the card base was cut from acetate. Tag is attached with some Trendy Twine (love the color combo) and was colored with distress ink. The little shrimp is colored with my new promarkers, expect a big ol' post on those soon... I have no idea how to color but I absolutely LOVE them!
