I'm remembering why I try to avoid it at all costs...in addtion to having my house all torn up, I have now a sore back, have the start of blisters on my hand and my feet are killing me.

And there are still more rooms to go (but not tonight....put a fork in me...I'm DONE!)

I saw this on his blog yesterday! I'm hoping they will have a demo at CHA...but I don't have an electronic cutter (yet) and still not sure if I want to go Cameo or Eclipse. Figure I don't have to decide until I'm ready to hand over $$!! hehe

I think that the eclips is going to be more versitile. You can use it with or without catridges...compatible with SCAL (eCAL...esp. for eclips) and more powerful. But the cameo has really cute files...and you can cut up to 10 feet in length! But, they are sort of exclusive and I have heard rumors that they might do the same thing that Provocraft did. Either way, you'll have fun! it's not the cutter...it's what you can produce! i just thought you were into Tim Holtz....or...I guess Melody is too.

I think the Cameo can use SCAL too....can't remember...have looked at too many e-cutters lately! hehe

And yes, I am a fan of the Tim Holtz products....

Well, CHA was fun! I got to meet Linda Duke and Linda Ledbetter for the first time. Also met the owners of Spellbinders, Juliana Hudgins, Donna Salazar, Wendy Vecchi and Suze Weinberg.

Have to say that I really didn't look at the paper craft stuff ( ) as I was more interested in different mediums this year. Checked out some cool glass paints from Art Deco, beading, Ice Resin, molding compounds and I want to play with all the products that Viva Decor has (like Linda Duke says, they are the one stop medium store that no one knows about!!)

Hey, Starla. I'm so glad you are keeping this thread alive.

I finished two journal pages last night. I'm starting to get the feel of doing those. I doubt I will ever use it to journal like a diary. I'm just too private and will never share my deepest thoughts with the world. But I'm doing one for the monthly Bible verse challenge, which I think is a fun way to do some art and memorize at the same time.

I found my tatting shuttle last week, so I'm trying to reteach myself at least as much as I learned in the one class I took probably 30 years ago. I have a couple of books with really basic instructions in them. This afternoon is my lace guild, but I decided to stay home (just lazy). We got a couple inches of snow yesterday and then it turned really cold and I just didn't feel like going out.

What is a tatting shuttle? I've never heard of it?

I'm SLOWLY finding my desk top. Just not inspired to clean, haha!! Actually, I REALLY need to go through this room and PITCH. But that is just to daunting to even know where to begin (besides pick and corner and go from there!!) I guess I should pick a corner...and start there. I know that a lot of bloggers make up boxes and sell but I have issues with paypal (my account was a magnet for phishing attempts. Shut it down). Maybe I should just make up boxes for blog candy....and give some stuff to the teachers for crafts.

But not today! haha

tatting is another form of lace making. Not many people know how to do it anymore.

Here is a link: Tatting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

my shuttle looks like the ones on the pink background. I think a lot of the current ones are made from plastic, but I think they may also be made from wood or bone.

That is kind of cool. At first I thought it was similar to crochet, but as I read more, I realized that it is different. My guess is, this is something that I'll leave to you!

Well, I guess I would say it's more complicated than crochet. Although, in theory, I think that you only have to learn a couple of 'stitches' and then everything is made from those, whereas crochet has a lot of different 'stitches'.

I watched a real beginner basic tatting youtube today, and I realized that I'm holding my shuttle wrong, which is probably why I've been struggling. It has been a long time since I took that class after all. And pictures in a book are a lot harder to follow than actually seeing someone in action.

I think I would like to get a new plastic shuttle, which would be lighter in weight than the metal one I have. But I'm not sure what type to get, so I'll have to call one of the ladies in my lace group and ask her for a recommendation. Too late to do that tonight. I'll probably have to order on line & I think I need more than one anyway, because some tatted lace is done with two shuttles. I love what tatted lace looks like, but it's hard to find someone to teach you how to do it.

It is very pretty! I liked the picture of the tatted flower with the beads in it.

I managed to find most of my craft area yesterday. I can now see the floor and my desk top. But not sure I really want to start a project this morning as this afternoon is set aside to help youngest kiddo make valentine treats

So, one science project down...one to go! haha.


I need to crank out some cards today...but it's sunny...and yesterday it was cloudy...

I'm just out of stamping drive these days. So sad, I know! Or maybe I've been so laden down with bread lately...I can't move fast! haha

Today started out nice & sunny - then got cloudy. I just looked out the window and it is SNOWING big fluffy flakes! Apparently I've been so glued to my computer screen, that I just didn't notice.

It is a GORGEOUS day here and I just got called to see if I can work this afternoon. GRRRRRR...............need to think positive!!

I need a couple of cards for this weekend too....guess that will have to happen tomorrow!! I've been experimenting with some different things, but haven't actually created anything to share. Have been finding myself wanting to explore some other things besides cards. Sooo, I've plugged in my Bamboo tablet (haha...go figure I'd try to draw using the computer when I haven't drawn in FOREVER the "old" way!!), played around with a new technique (for me) with alcohol inks and Gelli plates. I actually just applied for the TenSecondStudio DT featuring their new VerDay product. We'll see. Even if I don't make the team, I will want to play around with these paints!!

So what's up girls?! Nothing much new here. Tonight we are taking the JV boys b-ball team to watch the Clippers vs the Nuggets. Going to be a late night, but the boys are looking forward to it.

Need to start making thank you cards for all the coaches who help out DH for the city league b-ball. Just can't find my mojo for b-ball!! I think I'm a tad burnt out!! (here, basketball never ends....city league (for the younger kiddo) has 3 more weeks....DH is also coaching middle school varsity, which goes almost to the end of school..a short break then summer league will start again for the high school)

Actually need to get off my duff and make a couple of other thank you cards too!!

I've been trying to keep my hands busy every day doing something arty. Because I started doing some art journaling (although journaling itself - not), I can play with backgrounds for days before they actually end up in a page. I am using the Bible verse challenge as a basis for one. Another so far consists of different challenges for a yahoo group i'm in.

I'm trying to teach myself to tat, so that is another thing that I can pick up for 10-15 minutes. Yesterday I bought a couple of new tatting shuttles, because the one I have, which is quite old, is rather long & I've been having trouble getting it through the loop (I know you have no idea what I'm talking about, but that's ok - lol). So hopefully the shorter ones will make it easier. We'll see. There are a couple of ladies in my lace group who tat, so if I run into difficulties, I'm sure I can get help from them.

Yesterday, we went to get our taxes done, but she ran into a glitch & needs to figure how to fix it, so we're not quite done, but we'll be getting money back. yay!

my mom found someone to teach her to tat years and years ago...I really admire you for learning. It's good to keep learning...esp. the stuff that people are forgetting!

art journal? Like the commercialized smashbooks...only a non commercialized art journal? haha. I was going to use a composition notebook...but then a friend of mine gave me one. I have glued in "some of my favorite paper crafting products." I'd like to do a 2 page spread of my 2012 design teams...and that's all that I have thunked up!

I'm open to thoughts...ideas....suggestions!

It is ALL over the web! So far, I've been doing individual pages (did one spread) using watercolor paper. I haven't figured out yet how I will bind them. My first thought was with my bind it all, but I haven't been able to find it. I knew where the box was... but when I dug it out, it was EMPTY! So... right now I don't have enough pages done to make a book anyway, so I'm just biding my time.
