Shopping Our Stash Challenge #149


The challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is #149 – May Day.

Xerox Flecs Cover, American Crafts Jute, Vintage no ID sequins* TPC Studio Hugs and Kisses in Memento Tuxedo Black. Diamond Glaze adhesive.

*I can’t tell you the manufacturer of the sequins but I can tell you they were used by my now 24yo daughter to make a project in Middle School. Once it was graded and brought home, it  was deconstructed so we could reuse the components. Hi, we’re a crafty family.

Operation Write Home Sketch 222


The Sketch at Operation Write Home today is Sketch #222. At the time of this post, the actual sketch hadn’t been posted yet but the inspiration for it had.

My card is based on that inspiration.

Xerox Flecs Cover, We R Red White and Blue – Patriot. Doodlebug sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black, Recollections Brads.

Blue October – Sway Video


Blue October has released their video for Sway, the title track to the latest album.

I’m sorry if it’s objectifying but this is the first moment when Justin looks at the camera. He has the most most amazing eyes. When he makes eye contact with you at a show, you feel it from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.
