A Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

Oh boy do I have a little bit of this and that to share.  lol. 

First off, some kiddo pics:

This is Ella pretending to drive the new golf cart Tom got.  We had been one of the only ones at the Campground that did not have a golf cart.  We are about a mile walk from the showers so this will definitely be nice to use when carrying all the shower goodies to the shower building .  Plus it will be fun!  It's a Harley Davidson!  Tom has since made improvements to it like taking off the stickers that were on the front in this pic.  I'll need to update the pic.

Debbie enjoying a Shamrock shake at McDonalds.

Ella tired out from a van ride to the store.

Ella said "Look Mom!  I'm a snowman!"

Excited for snow!

Dylan wearing his Harley shirt!  Thanks Joyce!

Tom and Dylan got these sweatshirts that you can plug your phone or ipod into and have the music playing through the strings.  Thought that was interesting! 

I have been busy crafting but I seem slow to share the pics of it!  haha!  Here's an Easter project for the kids (tags).  It's my share on The Scrappy Tree blog today.

I made a bunch for our kids as well as the daycare kiddos.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Getting back into my art journal

Hi!  For today's post at The Scrappy Tree, I wanted to work alittle in my much neglected, yet loved, art journal.  Art journals are fun because you just do whatever and make a mess!  Sounds like fun right?

The above video is just a start of my journal page.  Love the gelatos to make some gorgeous color.

Unfortunately I was a dummy and deleted the second part of my video from my phone before I got it onto my individual YouTube Channel.  I did get it on to The Scrappy Tree though so check it out there!

Have a wonderful day!

Just a catch up post! :) New Scrappy Tree video also!

Hi!  Seems like I have a lot to post today.  It's Sunday afternoon and I've had a really great weekend of crafting with the girls and making a mess.  lol.  I had a video to do for The Scrappy Tree that I'd like to share with you.  It's about stamping with my Faber-Castell Pitt big brush artist pens (which I LOVE!). 

I also have a few photos to share.  Ella decided to pick out her own Valentine's Day outfit.  :)
Cute huh??  :)

We also needed a new washing machine that was just hooked up yesterday!  I have not been so happy to do laundry again in my life!!!  I really had a pile up happening!  

 I am in love with this washer!  :)

Ella loves the box!

She has been sleeping in it since Saturday night!  :)

Making a Quick card

Hello!  Boy, it's hard to believe Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  I will need to get busy making some things!!  I had a bit of time to make a video of a quick, easy card that I shared with The Scrappy Tree today on the blog.  I'd like to share it here too. 

I've been working on some coloring images that I hope to share this week yet.  I've been using my Pitt big brush artist pens and I've had fun blending them.

Watercolor stamping with Faber Castell Gelatos

Hi!  Today I have a video to share over on The Scrappy Tree  on how to use your Faber-Castell Gelatos to stamp watercolor images as a card background.  The Gelatos are such a fun product to use and stamping watercolor images is just one way to use them. 

I have a full set of gelatos in a nice box.  They can be purchased in individual color families as well.

These are the gelatos I used in my project.

 They give a creamy color when applied.

 Final project (watercolored stamping).

Here's the video link on how to achieve the effect:

Please excuse my poor filming!  Debbie was in school and couldn't be my camera girl.  :)

Stamping Basics: Versafine Valentine at The Scrappy Tree

Hi!  I have a new video tutorial/project up at The Scrappy Tree today using versamark ink and embossing powders.  Here's a link to the post.

I am going to use the Valentines as a part of a card exchange I'm doing where I need to make 10 cards. 

Here's a pick of two out of the ten:

That's all I have for cards to share right now.  I hope you are having a great weekend!  Be back next week!

A Simon Says Stamp order finally arrives

Ok, I love ordering new stuff when I get some holiday money or save up for some crafting goodies so when I placed an order on the first of the year with, I was super excited to get it.  They are quick shippers and my order was shipped Jan. 2nd with the estimated arrival date of the 5th.  It just got here today (no fault of SSS)!!  The postal service shipped it to the wrong town on a few occasions causing it to be late! Agh!!  Anyway, I finally got my goodies so I can do a video on inks for The Scrappy Tree this week!!

Here's my order video:

I have never tried the Hero Arts Shadow Inks so I'm looking forward to trying them tonight!  Thanks for stopping by!
