My complaint with white embossing powder is that it tends to turn ivory colored after time. Maybe I'm not using it up fast enough?

There are garage sales in our area, but now the weather is getting colder. A friend is going to sell hers on Craig's List. I will wait until next year as I don't have a lot to sell right now.

My husband donated his metal magnetic bowl to me. I believe it's from Harbor Freight. Works great to keep my dies where I want them.

My hubby hung a light about 26 inches directly over my work area. It has one of those funny coiled bulbs, but gives me plenty of light for card making. Best thing we've ever done for my hobby.

A product called un-du also removes glue. Cardstock will be wet for a few seconds, but dries without any staining.

Nightcrawler, glad you found the right calendar. I, too, liked it that it printed on one page. You can replace the calendar next year by just going to Print-a-calendar 2021. Makes a neat gift.

Kazeka, I, too, found the plastic l-shape was too thin for my thicker stamps. I had my hubby make one for me out of thicker wood. Have used it for years and it works like a charm.
