List it Tuesday: Household Stencils

I’ve had a bit of a creative block the last week or so, so I was super excited to see today’s List it Tuesday topic at Artsyville. Aimee has the awesome idea to build a master list of unorthodox stencils as an artistic resource. In the past I have loved using a couple of these […]

Tiny Notebook!

I’ve been so inspired by Robyn’s tiny notebook pages, that “create tiny notebook” has been on my crafty to-do list for weeks. With a little bit of time to kill on a Sunday afternoon, I decided to jump in and make one for myself. I used some leftover Canson Mixed Media paper, washi tape, embroidery […]

It’s a few days into February now, and I’m just now getting around to gathering my thoughts on the January daily pattern challenge. Overall, I think January was a success for me, and I enjoyed the process much more than I did in December. I loved carving the stamps, and I loved the immediacy of […]

Daily Pattern Challenge: January Update

I’m about two weeks into the January daily pattern challenge. When I started carving stamps this month, I thought I would like doing it, but didn’t realize how fast I would fall for the process. Pulling back the stamp from the first imprint is always like magic. For someone who tends toward being a control […]

List it Tuesday: What’s New?

I’m excited for the return of List it Tuesday at Artsyville this week! The topic this week is: What’s New? Here’s a quick list of things that are new in my world these days. 01. No more soda. One of only two true resolutions this year. Last year I gave up diet soda, and this […]
