Happy Crafting!

P.S.  I will comment with the correct answer and winner during Tuesday evening’s office hours.

Designer Series Paper makes a difference.

It’s Tutorial Thursday!  Choosing the right Designer Series Paper can make all the difference in the world.  If you want the design to stand out you pick a brighter or bolder pattern.  If you want the accents or sentiment to stand out you pick something a little more muted.  In this case the pick is a little more muted.

Yesterday’s question was how many swaps did I complete?  Go to yesterday’s post to comment to guess the number.

Today’s question is how many rolls of snail refill did I go through while preparing my swaps?

Pieces of a background.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!  Have you ever stamped a big background stamp and not all of it came out?  Then use a punch and pull the pieces you do want to create a background.

As I am finishing packing for OnStage I have a question for you…how many swaps did I complete?  Whoever guesses the correct number will get a free pack of dimensionals to keep you stamping.

Sparkles give a different image.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  This is not so much of a technique as it is a reminder that ink looks different on different papers.  Don’t be afraid to stamp on glimmer paper, foil paper, or anything else.

Are you resting today?

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Are you resting today for me?  I am on day 2 of the Reach Out Morongo Basin’s Craft Fair.  I am not resting much but I am getting to talk to people and do a bunch of crafting.  It’s a break from the routine but not one with my feet up.

I would encourage you to go out of your comfort zone and do something different today.  If you always go get breakfast on Sunday morning maybe order your eggs different.  You just might discover something new and like it.

Happy Crafting!

Give Big or Small

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  If you didn’t know we just finished the Give Big campaign with the county.  This program is a focused effort on giving for 24 hours.  Non-profits in the local area sign up to “Give Big”.  There are prizes for how many people you get to give, at what time, certain amounts, etc.  Did you participate?  It’s a great way to make your dollar go further.

If you didn’t participate don’t worry, we can still Give Small.  I would encourage you to think (and act) every day to create impact or a ripple in someone else’s life for the better.  It doesn’t matter if someone is matching your dollar or if it is simply a smile to be shared with a stranger.  I would encourage you to just be present in the moment and be aware of how you are affecting others.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
