hello...anybody there?

Yup, I'm here!  Buried under a chit load of snow, product, lists and just about everything else!  I had such big plans on partaking in the Creative Chemistry 101 Class over at Online Card Classes...but once again - life has just simply gotten in the way!  I do try and at least head over to the site daily to download the PDF's and watch a video or two (not doing so good right now)!

Like most of  Eastern Alberta - we too got dumped on Monday afternoon till early Tuesday morning...just a mere 10" in 12 hours!  Thankfully it was a snow day on Tuesday so my son and I headed out to clear the driveways, garage pads and front walk (so good 'ol UPS could arrive) and three hours later...good enough is what I said! It warmed up and we didn't lose any snow..it just 'compacted' it!  Now as I type this tonight...what is it doing, you guessed it - SNOWING!  There is already a good 3+ inches out there.  Mother Nature...I think it is time I have a chat with your Superior, you are not making a lot of friends around here!

There has been so much new product arriving here almost daily - the UPS driver has a chuckle every time he comes here saying I think I see you more than my wife!  So what is new you ask - don't think I could even venture to list it all, best thing for you to do is head over to the site and go through the 346 pages of stock or just check out the first ten pages which has been added just over the last week alone!  But just to name a few...
perfect for creating that next 'altered' project...venture out a little - I dare ya!

  try a new technique...be adventurous and get a little inky!

vintage you say...heck ya!  Why not a little bit more while we are at it...


so until I dig myself out again...go get inky why don't ya!

Have you signed up yet?

 

If you have been hiding under a rock, you may not have heard that the master is having an on-line class!  I signed up pretty quick...I can't wait to take the class.  I think it will be great to have all the info in one place!  I don't know about you - but whenever I find a new trick or technique - I print it off, save it on the computer, scribble notes on a piece of paper, make notes and sketches in my scribbler (or should I say scribblers) then try and find it again later or totally forget about it because it is nowhere to be found in my creative space(s)!

You can find more info here on his blog....

Or here on his blog....read fast as he is doing a giveaway to the class too!  

Or - you can go straight to the class site by clicking HERE!


Class starts Monday March 19 - see you in the classroom!

Did you ever...

...just have one of those great ideas.  Well I know I have had a few over the years and as usual do nothing with it (them) and next thing you know...BAM...there it is  - showcased by someone else!  Well at least now I know it was a great idea cause good ol' Mr Tim has showcased it!

Check out the link to a video he has done showcasing honeycomb paper.  The sad thing is - or probably not overly surprising thing - he has done way better than I ever would have!  The man never ceases to amaze me!

See video HERE!

Get Honeycomb Paper HERE!  Stock is low right now, but more is due in later this week!  Loads of colors are available, don't forget to ink or spray to get the color and or look you are after!

While you are over at YouTube watching this video - why not check out some of his other videos, one never knows the inspiration one may come across!
