Featured Blogger Brenda with Homemade Wobble Tutorial, Giveaway!!

I am so excited Kristal asked me to do a video tutorial for my homemade wobble.  I really don't do a lot of videos because I use a flipshare camera and do not know how to edit.  I practice each video about 4 times until I find the one I like the best.  Hahaha, isn't that just too silly?
Anyway, I am so excited for the opportunity to be a featured blogger on her blog this week at Getting Cricky with K. Andrew. I started following Kristal almost at her beginning.  I came across her blog when she made the most beautiful butterflies with UTEE and she had such a great tutorial and I was hooked...oh and it didn't hurt that I actually won one of those beautiful butterflies.
She is such a kind and generous lady and with all the inspirational posts she has I feel as if she were talking directly to me daily.  I am so honored that she has given me this opportunity and hope that you will all pass her blog around and tell all your friends; crafty and non, because even some of my non-crafty friends follow Kristal because of her inspirational words.

My name is Brenda and I can’t even tell you when I started crafting, but it was at a very young age.  My mom always had some sort of project going and I learned from the best.  I have been scrapbooking and card making for about 15 years.  I am very interested in many different mediums. My crafts exist of scrapbooking, card making, wedding favors, centerpieces, floral arranging, vinyl homedecor, glass etching, paperclay creations (mainly for scrapbooking and card making) and jewelry making. I dabble in a few more crafty things but I think my list is long enough.  I am addicted to using my Cricut, Gypsy, and Cuddlebug, and I have recently added the E-craft to my room.  SCAL is one of my best friends, but sometimes it seems I am playing more than creating, but that all has changed recently...thanks to Kristal, because I also design for her.
You can find my blog Creativity is a State of Mind here

This is what I created for the Simply Sunday Post:

Now onto my video....

I hope you enjoyed my video & here are some pictures of the tutorial:
