This is a very brief posting today. I've been very lax on backing up my little powerhouse MacBook Air, so I plugged the Time Machine on yesterday morning. It's STILL working its way through everything and, while it's doing that, my computer is rather sluggish at times. So . . . I'll hope that it finishes its work by late afternoon so I can share with you some of the "new" going on. What?

  • Beautiful cards made by Jane Townsend and Linda Beveridge that we're excited to share with you;
  • A gorgeous stencil and zentangle by, guess . . . Dianne!
  • New "Diane" collection papers from SEI and more of the popular "Mia Bella" 6x6 paper pads;
  • New 12x12 and 6x6 paper pads from KaiserCraft in beautiful teal colors, including foils and embossed papers; as well as a few wood embellishments.

If you don't want to wait until the photos are posted, these items will be at the store by 11:00 a.m. today!

Our friend Kazuko Ocho shared a very easy technique to make a beautiful background paper using products from Imagine Crafts®/Tsukineko® . . .

"AIR Kazuko messes around with Fireworks!, Goosebumps, and some Penny Black stamps to create this darling card."

This photo of Mount Rainier was taken in March or April of this year and I wanted to share what I read about it . . .

"Lenticular Clouds

In this photo there are two clouds stacked up into one beautiful and striking lenticular cloud on top of Mt. Rainier, US.

Normally, air moves much more horizontally than it does vertically. Sometimes, however, such as when wind comes off of a mountain or a hill, relatively strong vertical oscillations take place as the air stabilizes.

The dry air at the top of an oscillation may be quite stratified in moisture content, and hence forms clouds at each layer where the air saturates with moisture. The result can be a lenticular cloud with a strongly layered appearance.

Due to their shape, they have been offered as an explanation for some Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings"
