Friday June 25

I'm gonna start out by asking, is it me or are many of you wondering how it got to be almost the end of June already? Its been a not so great weather wise June here, very serious rain storms and hot and mostly humid so haven't really enjoyed being out on our patio which is one of my favorite summer time hobbies. I have been busy in my craft room however, been trying out new ideas for backgrounds on cards and still loving the Claybord, it is so much fun, it kinda reminds me of being a kid again and getting lost in my coloring book, its very relaxing and just plain fun. So if your interested get some Claybord online or at hobby lobby and try it out. I've got several new stamps and can't wait to try them all out on cards. Another product I just love is the Viva paints and mostly their liner pens, you can use them on anything including wood, fabric, and of course the usual paper items, you can not believe the lovely things you can create with the white pearl pen, I have done several pearls which you can use to decorate with, when you put them on a piece of wax paper, they will form an actual round circle and look exactly like a pearl..It does not form a peak like most paints do but rounds out as it dries. Just great.

Been Awhile

Its been awhile but I was down big time with pain in my arm,neck and back, its not a new thing, comes and goes. I have also been very busy with my stampbord and I just love it..If you want to try a different way, to make some art, buy a few samples and go to it. You do need the tool, the scratching tool at least to really do all that you can with it.but its fantastic..I've also been busy with my cards and some of Lindy stamp gangs sprays, they too are great and will give you so many different backgrounds and always two tone colors, check out Lindystampgang to find out what I mean. I've been using their mica's for many years now, was introduced to them at a Stamping show and they are really nice. I was also kinda busy with the payoffs of hockey as I am a BlackHawk fan, and it took us 41 years but we won the Stanley cup again...Hurray!

Busy

I've been so busy making cards and jewelry that I've been remiss in writing here so sorry if anyone is reading this. I love my Cricut, don't know what I'd do without it making cards. Its been great for cutting out words to use on them and for making some objects to use on the cards. I also love my smooch paint, its great on top of ink for making something stand out. I've got about 6 different projects going at once. I also did some beading on a couple of shirts and one bag its fun to see how they make the shirt stand out with glitz. My daughter in law Wendy, is in the beading business with her partner Janet and they do some beautiful work, she sent me a tee shirt for Mother's Day and as soon as I can get Jack to do it, he will take a picture of it so you can all see some really nice jazzy glitz. I love glitz!! Back to my craft room see ya all in my dreams...
