I just thought FOR SURE
I would get back in my creative groove today.
"Thought" being the key word!
But I have to say...art goodies and supplies
always, always get me excited about creating!!!
I had to get out and get a few things we needed the other day
so it was the perfect opportunity
to swing by Hobby Lobby, Staples and Michael's for a quick check
to see if they had something that I was missing out on!
Here's what I came home with:
These rhinestone things are at Michael's and I LOVE THEM!
I know they will be gone soon as everything at Michael's usually is,
so I used a coupon and snagged another card ~
I found this glimmer mist stuff at Michael's too!
I'm not such a glittery girl but I had the girl at the checkout
put a little of this onto a piece of white paper and it looked like
coffee or strong tea ~ so I thought it would be great misted
onto a beautiful old photograph I printed out!
My fav glue stick from Hob Lob...the metal things are from Michael's ~
I want to corrode them more though ~ I love, love using these in my art!
I always use my slide cutter and needed a few new blades.
Did you know that Michael's were THREE dollars more than Hob Lob?
Another tidbit of info...
I take all of my used up printer cartridges to Staples and they
mail me coupons! I had a 10.00 off coupon and was able to get
my fav paper for FREE!!! I also love the 20 lb. (regular paper thickness)
This 67 lb. is not as thick as cardstock but I love printing images on it
when creating my artwork.
Hob Lob had tons of things that were 50% off
and I thought this little pack of stuff looked wonderful!
Here are the metal frames again ~
I need to corrode them a little, just have to figure out how again...
Here's the color of the Glimmer Mist!
When I cleaned out my studio a few months ago,
I noticed all of my metallic and gold paints had dried up so
I also restocked those for the upcoming Christmas season ~
I so love that Champagne shade!!!
And now for a baby update!!!
Emily has been having contractions 20 minutes apart...
she is dilated a full 3 and 60% effaced!
I'm charging the camera battery right now 'cause
I'm thinking we will have a precious grandson really soon!!!
Wishing you a wonderful Friday and weekend dear friends,
hugs and love,
