We're back! Monday and Tuesday were such 'more than busy' days that feeling overwhelmed doesn't begin to cover it. What's even more hilarious is how my trip to Phoenix began with so many obstacles. Getting through those obstacles ended up with an even more harrowing effort to get here.

The velvet papers have been restocked . . . thank you, SEI! Now we're just waiting for the order from The Paper Cut to restock the metallic and mirricard card stock. And yes, the Discount 12x12 Paper Box is back. There are many more papers to add to the box, so please take advantage!

Magenta is having the best time with a Blog Hop of their own among the members of their Design Team. Our Dianne Johnson has been submitting beautiful card designs and this one is today's posting:

Here's a Christmas card from Jean Okimoto on the Memory Box blog featuring products from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko and their Brilliance pearlescent ink that I just love!

Lynell and Wayne Harlow have collaborated on a "Sten-zangle" on the Dreamweaver Stencils' blog. They're now going to have "Zensdays with Lynell and Wayne" and that will be amazing "eye candy" to see each time.

Dina Kowal has been working on a Bible Journal. On this particular posting, she shows how she uses Frog Tape made specifically for delicate paper, die cut letters and Pan Pastels. This technique would transfer perfectly for other journal work and card designs.

I think I'm getting back to normal now. My 8:30 p.m. flight departure from Seattle on Monday night left at 11:30 p.m. The driver who was supposed to meet me at the airport to take me to my sister-in-law's house an hour away couldn't meet me that late. So I then had to find a taxi who would take me. I finally arrived at the house around 3:00 in the morning and got to bed just before 4:00 a.m. Needless to say, yesterday was very unproductive.

Be sure to stop in at Art 'n Soul, where the rain outside doesn't dampen your creativity!
