Maybe you are coming down with something. Happy-itis perhaps? If so, let's hope it's contagious!

Good morning

The frost is on the pumpkin here in KY this morning! Everything is sugar coated with frosty loveliness. I hope it warms up before I have to go outside. I'm not ready for winter yet.

That was veiled sarcasm. It's hard to see it when I write. It's much easier to hear if you in the room with me. I am very thankful that my car now lives in the garage. I hate scraping cold windshields.

I would LOVE a sarcasm font. Maybe if I write in itallics when I'm being sarcastic it will be easier for you to recognize.

Nah, that probably wouldn't work either. Every third word would probably need to be font changed - I'm sarcastic a lot. hee hee hee

Happy Mail Alert!

prairiejen - your package of goodies has arrived safely.

Jen - LOL, you crazy Canadian. Do I try the ketchup or the dill pickle first...that is the question. I'm not trying either one until my sore throat goes away, but I am looking forward to the experience. You crack me up! Thank you

As for the artwork...They look good to me Things with Strings...Moulin Rouge...Women's hats...(LOL)...vintage pin-up....and everything for group #2 - they all struck a chord with me. (Especially the cursed objects...really liked that one)

Now you can take a long winter's nap - it will be a little while before these are returned to you.

Jen, you aren't crabby. It's just that early white flaked landscape causing the blues.
But your first winterpeg picture is still so pretty. Get your mukluks out and your touque, and show your Canuck spirit. We Canadians don't hide from adversity but embrace it.
(I heard that on TV this week - give me a break). LOL

Anyone else making their Christmas cards yet? I got stopped at 12 but need triple that.
Would you believe it is almost a year since we moved and some of my crafting stuff is still packed in a closet. I really do need to get things together.

Good morning

Yes Norma, that is next on my to-do list. I have several designs in mind, but just getting a block of time to get started is the hardest part. I'm taking inventory of my swap obligations this morning to see if there is anything else I need to finish before I tackle the Christmas card project.

I thought I was ready to make my cards this weekend, had what I thought I wanted to use. Then I went to my Stampin' up get-together Friday night, and fell in love with the Cherry Cobbler color, and ordered the cardstock and stamp pad and reinker. That is the prettiest red, and the one I already had looks "cheap" next to it. Well it was cheap, bought at Michaels on sale. So I will have to wait till my order comes to start. And of course the design she showed us is soooo pretty, so I have to change my mind about that too. It may be Christmas day before I really decide what I want to do.

I agree, the Cherry Cobbler is a very pretty colour. You made me laugh with your "cheap" comment. I haven't been to Michaels for eons. There is a scrapbooking store out here that has some wonderful items in it. Just a small store but loaded with unique items. I think that's where I'll send Santa this year with my ideas list. HO,HO,HO.

Michaels has some very good stuff, but their cardstock and Hobby Lobby's cardstock just doesn't compare to Stampin' up. Some of the.....lets say less expensive......cardstock is lighter weight, and sometimes it is hard to cut with a paper trimmer. It makes little fuzzies on the edges. I haven't ordered any more better stuff on line, it is convenient for me to get SU from my friend Jackie. I use the......other..... when I am making lots of one thing, or when my grandson needs it for a project I let him use it. There is just a difference when 50 sheets costs $3.99 and you have a 50% coupon that says........cheap.

Good morning

Question of the day -

How many card designs do you try before you settle on the one you are going to use? (I'm having issues landing on my choice for this year - can you tell?) How do you decide what is exactly right?

I usually start with a basic idea. Then I mess around with what I THINK will work without gluing. When I get it where I think it is OK, I glue. Then I wait till the next day and see if I still like it.
Most of the time, I will make several different designs, sort of to go with the people who will receive them. Some like a more serious, spiritual card, and some would not like those as much as my usual "whimsical" styled ones. A VERY FEW will get a one of a kind special one.

Card designs... Funny....
I haven't made my own set of Christmas cards for a few years so I'm going to pass on that question. I did get to go to a stamping convention here in central WI last weekend in Oct. where I bought the materials to make handmade cards... but alas... still working on swaps.

First of all I go through all my Christmas stamps, spiritual, comic, traditional, etc. I pick a couple and then see what kind of ribbon and embellishment I have to go with the stamps. Then I think of technique...emboss, stamp and color, cuddlebug, 3D, whatever. Takes me a long time. The idea is the hardest. Right now I have to come up with an idea for our Christmas party invite. The party is always the 2nd Friday in December and I send out 70-80 invites.

Okay, so here's what I decided to do about my cards. Six of one design, 10 of another and then I will see how many more I need to finish my list. Then I can make special ones and spend a little more time on them after Thanksgiving.

Joyce,

I have decided on my technique for group #13 and I'm really jazzed about this one because I have been wanting to do this technique for a few years now (yes, I said years; sad, but true) and never gave it a shot: monoprinting. I bought a plate from Gelli Arts a few years ago and now I'm gonna get to break it out and break it in WOOHOO

I'm so excited, I think I might have to start these today

Ooohhhh...sounds intriguing. Do you have a link to examples or pictures? Or tutorials...now we'll all want to try it!

(yes, I have that "years in the making" list too. It's okay, we all understand.)

Well, it's good to know that I'm in VERY good company re: the "years in the making" list HAHA


YouTube (of course - don't you just LOVE YouTube??) has videos on monoprinting.

The video that got me all worked up today was this one from Gelli Arts:
Wipe Out Monoprinting - Gelli Arts

In case the above link does not work (sorry, but I am link challenged lol), please just go to YouTube and search on 'Wipe out monoprinting' and you should see the video from Gelli Arts. The video is entitled "Wipe Out Monoprinting - Gelli Arts™ & Catalyst Tools! ". Gelli Arts has a number of YouTube videos.

Monoprinting kind of reminds me of fingerpainting, but using tools to move the paint instead of your fingers......and of course we could use our fingers, too, if we wanted to...

Gelli Arts: They have a number of sizes of plates (the 12 x 14 is wayyy to expensive imho). I have the 8 x 10 plate.

Cool I watched the video. I've taken several printmaking classes - you'll enjoy this. It's lie potato chips though - you can't stop with just a few sheets or colors.

What makes their printing plate better than plexiglass? I read on their website that they have a mineral oil residue - will that affect the print/paint?

I'm clueless as to this vs. plexiglass and whether or not the residue affects the print/paint but I do know that this plate is supposed to be a substitute for printing using real gelatin. The clean up of this gelli plate is supposed to be very easy.

I have emailed Gelli Arts and asked them what the purpose of the mineral oil is - you got me curious now If they answer, I'll post the info on here. Of course (doh to me) I didn't ask them if the oil affects the print/paint, but it's getting late and I'm tired and that's my story and I'm sticking to it !!!!!!!!

I watched the video too. That looks like a lot of fun. I am sitting here thinking about how I could do that technique on an inchie.

You always are one for a challenge, Sybil, and doing this on an inchie would be a challenge for sure.

If you do this, please post a pic - I'd love to see it

You know, I have really been thinking that you could do that on a smaller thing with something not so thick, and use something teensy to comb through it, and then cut the paper in 1 inch pieces............it would work.

darning needles sandwiched between cardboard and taped. Using different sized blunt pointed needles would give you different widths and you can adjust the spacing of them between the cardboard. Once you are done messing with the paint, wash them and put them back in your sewing box.

I was thinking of using Charlie's fine toothed comb........He would rather me use it that way than on him.
Oh well, by the time I will have time to do this I will have forgotten it. Remind me after Jan. 1, OK?
Joyce, I am making 3 dozen "doughnuts" for my Threads of Love" ladies for Christmas. I have 25 finished. Hopefully will have them done for our party on December 14. They are different kinds, chocolate and regular, with frostings in lemon, vanilla, strawberry and dark chocolate. They look so cute together. I am just going to fill a big basket with them and let them choose their own "flavors". Not doing the sprinkles things, too much to do in too little time. I will send a picture when I get them ready to go. That is why I haven't started my PATs. Busy little hands............

If you wanted to put "sprinkles" on a few special ones, you could use those pins with the colored heads. That might work.

That is what the original pattern said to do. They will have their own pins, and I will just leave that up to them. Putting them in a basket they might stick themselves, and with some of these little old ladies on blood thinners it might not work.
I made one for one of my "leaders" for a special thing and put the pins in, and she loved it. She will get another one at the party.
I just hope I will get them all done, or I may have special "IOU a dougnut" cards made just in case.

Because I don't want to damage my gelli plate making patterns in the paint I went ahead and ordered the silicone wedges from Dick Blick that they used in the YouTube video. The wedges were inexpensive. Estimated delivery is this Friday so I hope to be monoprinting this weekend (delayed gratification hahaha)........
