I took one of those silly little Facebook quizzes to find out what kind of crafter I am. It's a game right? They couldn't possibly know me from 10 questions. What did I get? Niche crafter! And I thought, "Darn it! I'm trying to break out of my little box!" Think I'm taking that little quiz seriously now? Yep! So this weekend is going to be spent on new-to-me projects. Yes, I will probably make a card or two as well, but I'm going to try to keep it all new and different.
I had a new experience this week. I went to my first class at Painting With A Twist. So much fun! I've been thinking about going for a little over a month and when I saw that they had a class on painting the TARDIS I couldn't resist any longer. One more Doctor Who art project added to my collection. Did you notice that the windows are wrong? I was so caught up in the class and trying to do as Jackie suggested that I didn't realize she told us the wrong shape on the windows. I can go back for their SOS day, but I think I'll try to fix it at home first. Heaven knows, I have plenty of paint!
For the first time, I also decided to frame one of my art journal pages. Surprisingly, there is none of my original art on the walls in my own studio! I've decided that should change. I like this pretty floral and decided not to keep it buried in a book. Plus, my craft room is pink and green so how could I resist? I was thinking a square of pink Dew Drops around the glass and leaving the rest white. What do you think? Keep it white or paint it pink before I start adding the bling?
And now, before I log off to go and get painty I will leave you with this joke. It's an old one but it still makes me laugh. Enjoy...
This "warning" was forwarded to me by a friend.
A recent study indicated that rubber stamps and embossing powders give off certain pheromones that actually hypnotize women and cause them to purchase unreasonable amounts. When stored in large quantities in enclosed paces, the pheromones (Rubber) cause memory loss and induce the nesting syndrome (similar to the one squirrels have before the onset of winter i.e. storing food), therefore perpetuating their species. Sound tests have also revealed that the rubber emits a very high pitched sound, heard only by a select few: a breed of women known as "Rubber Stampers". When played backwards on an LP, the sounds are heard as chants, “buy me, stamp me, emboss me."
Studies have also indicated that aliens have inhabited the earth, helping to spread the effects that these Stamps have on the human population. It's also been experienced that these same pheromones cause a pathological need to hide these Stamp purchases when taken home (or at least blend them into the existing stash), and when asked by a significant other if the stamp is new, the reply is: "I've had it for a while."
Have a wonderful weekend! Drop me a note in the comments below and make my day!
