Last year my boyfriend and I were sooooo sick. This one illness wiped us out for a good 2 and a half weeks. Basically, all I could do was sleep, and drag myself to Target for tissues, orange juice, and soup. Then nap for 3 hours when I got home. The only bright spot of that time was that the tissues I bought had these adorable little foxes on them. Every time I would reach for a tissue they would make me smile. So I saved the box, and just found it last week when I was cleaning out my studio. So with Fall upon us I decided I had to make something cute out of these little guys (hoping all the while that the germs on the box had dissipated after it's year quarantined in the cupboard). So here is the cute little diorama I made with them, and now I must run to the store to stock up on Emergency C. I used Tim Holtz Wallflower paper for the project, the foxes and tress are from the tissue box.
I'm kind of loving Pink Paisley's Cedar Lane Collection. I realized I got pulled in by the adorable fox, and arrows. But the little feathers paper clips are truly a must have. And the gold accents in the ephemera pack are a nice touch.
I know I already said that Lawn Fawn's stamp set Baaah Humbug was on my wish list. But after seeing some more samples now it just moved to the top of my wish list! Seriously, the sheep's cuteness is killing me!
Just made a quick and easy pen loop for my new planner. The pen loops I buy never stay on, and though this one doesn't look that pretty I can tell you that pen is NEVER coming off. Also, I'll probably glue something over the blob so I'll never see it. All I did was take a little piece of 1/8 inch elastic in white. Then colored it to match my planner with a copic marker (copics are alcohol based so it will color just about anything). Then glued it in place with Crystal Accents. Make sure the ends of the elastic are glued directly on top of one another. If they lay side by side then your pen will hang crooked, and that would drive me NUTS!
Here is the thing, I dearly love planners. Just like everyone else I completely freaked out when they got popular again and have tried out SEVERAL of them. I really liked my Erin Condren but spiral bound is just WAY too confining to me. I want a Kiki K soooo much, but it is WAY too expensive. And because it is so expensive I know I won't use it. I will want to keep it pristine, so no touching. Then Marion Smith came out with her first planner and I couldn't give her my money fast enough. It is STUNNING, but like I thought I love it so much I don't want to ruin it by using it. So there it sits on my shelf looking at me while I work on projects. Sometime I will look over my shoulder and look at it and smile... because I am freakish that way. With all this trial and error I have become smarter though. Instead of buying a midori I made my own and tried it out... nope didn't keep up with it. So I got a moleskine and bullet journaled. It worked for a little bit, but I need pre-printed pages to make me happy. Especially the monthly calendar, it has to have dates and holidays in it. So it utter desperation I found myself looking around target. When I always go when I'm totally desperate. And low and behold I found this little beauty. The Mead Cambridge edition 2015-2016 Weekly Monthly Planner in a beautiful sky blue (trust me the color is beautiful even if the inferior pictures don't show it). I love the layout of the pages, very clean and elegant. Of course I'm going to get weird with it because it's a spiral bound, but the calendar and weekly pages might make up for that. AND... it's small enough to fit in a little avery binder so I might uncoil it, and see what happens.
I can't even tell you how much I love the movie A Christmas Carol. Even before a hint of winter is in the air I will start watching it. So these Graphic 45 Christmas Carol Collection stamp will absolutely be on my wish list. They even have the door knocker as a stamp, and I dearly love the holly garland in the second stamp set. EEEeeeEeeee I'm so excited!!!!
