Look what happens when I get home early






Well the boss let me go early today..so I came home and decided to work on my scraproom a little more..I was missing a set of my Sakura pens and well finally found them..they were in my stamp box..so then I decided well I am going to try flocking..cause flock was my word of the day..so got out my ranger embossing pad and thought I try that to flock..well flock that do you think it worked..not so much..so then I thought I would try my stik2 glue...after a half hour of looking for it..it has been determined that my wonderful (currently staying at home until later this month--when he finally gets called back to work) husband has moved it from it's last location..I cannot find it..so then I decided I will play with my new House Mouse stamps..I coloured them with my 3 sets of watercolour pencils..and what did I learn..even though I have 3 sets (different makes) and about 96 different ones..I still don't have enough colours..but this is what I came up with..used my handy dandy blender pen..which is supposedly refillable..(yeah..no it really isn't..if you can get the lid off without going to the dentist after then you got a good one)..anyway..so 2 stamps later..(not killed on the colouring of the sitting bear's nose..but first attempt)

So after all that fun..I thought hey I just watched Tim Holtz's new demos..I have a can of compressed air..(and do you think I could find the red nozzle plastic thingy..it must be with my stix2 glue) I came up with this..did this on an acrylic tag with my alcohol inks..now I think in his demo he used the new Bright colour sets..which I have yet to get my hands on..but I am told soon I will





So that fun was out of the way..and yes I continued..I know..I was shocked too..I spent about 4 hours in my scraproom..and really accomplished nothing..


So last thing I did while in there...I played with my peel off stickers and sakura pens..why not right..I had found the missing package..and as you know (or those who know me.) I love penguins..so shockingly I coloured penguins..





SO scrapbooking is possible during the work week..scrapbooking is possible at home..and well now I am tired and I must go watch CSI...and clean my hands...
Happy Flocking..(what a great word)

Everything looks great. I like flocking too, I have done the bears, but when I tried to do the dandelions - it was a mess.
