How many licks?

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!

Do you remember the Tootsie Roll commercial with the owl and the kid? And the question is asked how many licks does it take to get to the center of the tootsie roll pop. Did anyone ever figure it out? That’s not the point, I promise.

My point is this…if you don’t want to lick an envelope because it tastes bad or you don’t want a paper cut or you don’t want to spread your germs, use your aqua painter. Fill your aqua painter with water and use to moisten the flaps of envelopes.

Happy Crafting!

Getting ready for Christmas cards!

It’s Sale Saturday! Since I am at OnStage I figured I would run my own promotion to get you thinking about your Christmas cards. I know it’s been hard to get in the spirit of things when it is still over 80 degrees on most days here in the desert. But we are 6 weeks away from Christmas so it is time to get going (me included). So, are you ready?

Here is the promotion…

  • When you place an order online, via email, phone, messenger, text, whatever before Monday night at 7:30 pm you will get FREE product! Do I have your attention? All right…let me give you the details now.
  • You place an order of $50 or more before tax and shipping.
  • In that order you need to have at least one pack of card stock. It can be thick card stock, any color, designer series paper, or one of the 6X6 stacks. Just paper.
  • You will get a free pack of envelopes from me upon delivery of your order. If you order online I will send them with your thank you note. Please specify whether you want white or vanilla.
  • For every $50 and pack of paper you will get a pack of envelopes for FREE! So if you order $120 worth of product and 3 packs of paper you will get 2 packs of envelopes from me.

Not only am I running the envelope promotion but I am also making someone the host. If the group order totals $150 then I can choose a host. If you place an order at $50 or more you will be eligible to be randomly chosen as the host. I will be contacting you on Monday evening to choose your FREE products!

If you would like to order online please use host code EFKBYR3U. Right now the host is me, but will change when a mystery host is picked.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Please remember that I am in session for OnStage and I will get back to you as soon as I am available.

Happy Crafting!

Using an aqua painter to glue.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Do you know that the Aqua Painter can be used to glue product together? Yes, the Aqua Painter. No, I have not lost it (more than any other day).

Take the Aqua Painter and make sure it is rinsed and cleaned fully. Then fill with water. As you are finishing that stack of cards to go out in the mail use the Aqua Painter to glue or stick the envelope flap to the envelope. No more paper cut on your lip or that yucky taste from the envelope glue.

Happy Crafting!

An easy way to lick ’em and stick ’em.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!  If you are finishing up your Christmas cards then you are probably trying to figure out how to not lick all those envelopes.  Protect your tongue from paper cuts.  And I bet you’ve tried a sponge to wet that glue strip and half the time it sticks instead of gliding across.  So here’s another product to try.  Take your aqua painter and wet the edge with the brush.  Just remember to rinse the brush after so the glue residue doesn’t dry.
