Copic Markers

I am so excited, I just submitted my application for Copic Certification. These are all the rage in paper crafting, and I really think I will love using them more in my creating. The class is a day-long intensive course. This has been on my To Do list for a while and Cambria suggested I look into it at CHA. Her comment encouraged me to start moving it from To DO to DONE! Now, if I can just move a few other things to the DONE column.


The wins keep on coming

Maybe this not creating is the way to go. I won, again! I was the Day One winner for this months PTI release. In 2-6 weeks, a box of goodies will come for me containing the new set Peaceful Poinsettia, an old favorite, Holiday Wishes, clear rhinestones, and clear epoxy dome stickers! How cool is that?!
Actually, I have made a card this week. Still no pictures to share, but they are coming. I am working on all the samples for my class. The first one looks great! Not to mention Micheal's keeps giving me 50% off coupons and I feel like I have to shop with that big a discount. So each time, I go, I have some great new idea for a card and usually by the time I get back home, I have forgotten the idea, but I have some cool new craft supplies. I know something is weighing on my mind, becasue I am hording craft supplies. I'll be gald when I figure out the issue. At this rate, I'll be broke soon and then that will be weighing on my mind.
I'll charge the camera and take some pics of the new cards this weekend and hope to share the samples next week. Until then, check out the new releases at PTI.



SOMETHING NEW TO INSPIRE YOU! If you haven't heard, Ashley Cannon Newell is bringing a new publication, Embellish Magazine, to those of us addicted to paper crafting and challenges. I may be a slacker crafter, meaning I really just collect products and never actually create, but that does not mean I am out of the loop on the "whos its and whats its" of paper craft. I subscribe to the "right" blogs!

This looks like it might get me motivated to create. Well, the fact that I have a class to teach in October might also be the reason I actually create, but Embellish Magazine will certainly provide some inspiration for the card designs I use in that class. This just in...

I won for the drawing for Ashley's blog! Oh, how exciting! Here I was typing another new adventure and did not even know I won.

Thanks for sharing, Ashley. At least the four people who read my blog know about your new publication.
