Two trips to Michael's

I spent yesterday morning at Michael's on Long Island cruising up and down the aisles looking for bargains and craft supplies to use for my patterned papers. I bought more craft foam and pre-cut shapes to make a dozen more stamps and went right home to work on the papers. Today I head out to the Michael's in Queens to buy wood backed rubber stamps that are 50% off! I tend to get obsessed with things when first starting out. That's a good thing, right? 

I plan to take photos of the step by step process of making the patterned paper so I can share it with everyone. I'll upload those pics on Monday. I'm still playing around with my blog setup, font colors, etc. If anyone has any tips or tricks I'd love to hear about them. This is all new to me and I am totally amazed that I have been able to do as much as I have so far being a blogging neophyte. One of the problems I have is spacing text when writing a new post. I can't seem to get a space line between paragraphs of text. Does anyone know how to accomplish this?  I'd appreciate any and all help.

If you count our house as "Michael's House" technically you made 3 trips to Michael's this weekend. :) hehe

i've had that problem but not for awhile. all i can think is hit space (enter) twice. if that doesnt do it you can manually do it by clicking that HTML tab on the right of your post box and then type
and it will give you a break.
