Hambo Happiness!

Good Morning to ya''s just a couple cards made with Hambo stamps and my handy dandy copics.....The cobwebbed gauzy action on my witch makes me happy about spiders...Okay not really. I am a little rusty on writing the cheesy stuff and my coffee has only had it's first sips consumed . And now that I look at Nana boy I think how he would make a really awesome valentine! He also doubles as a paper pad holder.

Cameo Tag

Today I wanted to show you this tag I made. I used jewelry finding for embellishments /seam binding as the ribbon (all jacked up) and if you will notice, it has layered tags atop of each other.

More Shrinky happiness!

Here is a phone charm that I assembled on a play date with my friends Susan and Missy. We stamped on shrinky dinks and wired/beaded and wrapped! FUN!

Disaster has happened !

One day you are merrily going along thinking of all your projects and what you can actually accomplish then "CRASH"!!! Oh noooo!...." Where " is the first question.....upstairs? Okayyy (climbs stairs cautiously) Studio looks like tornado but chick made "Shew".....Then you turn the corner with one eye shut and the other peeking to the shopping room and you see it. UGH! One of my storage systems has collapsed! Holy Shitaki Mushrooms Girls! There are run away punches and naked stuff all over the joint!..So today even though I had things that were fun planned......I simply must go to the Market and clean up the stock that has fallen from my shelves. Anyone have a good (not broken) storage shelf for sale?

Copics and Kraftin Kimmie

These are some of the cards that I have colored with copics using the Kraftin Kimmie stamps...I told a little birdie I would show examples so that she may see what all can be done, I would also like to throw out into blogger world that if you take copic yourself a favor and be sure that your instructor is certified, You can find this out by going to the copic website and looking on the map that is nearest you..if their name doesn't show..they aren't certified and you run risk of being misinformed. That is never good for anyone and copics are a investment you don't want to be mislead on. I have also found that the Strathmore Bristol "smooth" paper works great with copics. Bristol papers come in ply's instead of weights like watercolor paper, which I don't recommend. But keep it simple! You can find this at Micheal's and with a coupon it's just happy money. Also remember when using copics more is better to blend, always start with lightest as base, then if you miss something it can be easily blended. If you end up with unwanted lines...blend all out with base light and let dry thoroughly before reapplying. Hope these few tips help and feel free to contact me if you have questions.


We came..We saw......We shopped until literally our feet hurt beyond comprehension..It was awesome! CKC Charlotte was fun with lots of laughs, See : Shopping hangover hair pics! We had a special messenger , come take the extra bags back so we could all fit back into the Burb to get home..see:  the strange man aka my hubby, in bed pic :) Gay pride was happening a block away with  Rascal Flatts blaring on the speakers.. and we got in several shopping side trips to the local stores aka Donna Downey..Thanks Bill for making it fun! And the city is great! I had a good time ladies and am already planning the next trip.

Love is.....

Love is.... When your hubby looks down constantly while at work to pick up that special something that might make you giddy. In my case it's some jacked up gears and hardware for my altered projects "sigh".....
