When I'm searching on the world wide web, it's amazing what you bump into. I just found this web page and I am so very glad because it's something I think you'll like.

Click on this link to go to the web page . . . you'll be amazed at the information they've posted:

From Penny Black's blog, another technique instruction from Heather Telford. In this posting, she uses one of the new Penny Black stencils with Memento Luxe and Radiant Neon inks.

Memory Box has released views of their new spring release. Patti printed out the new catalog and it's at Art 'n Soul for you to view, drool and order. I really like this card from their blog posting today.

From the IMAGINE Crafts' blog, all I can say is wow! Who would have thought you could make a faux wax seal with embossing powder? And then the magic created with irRESISTibles is incredible!

When I dropped off the new washi tape at the store today, I saw these two sample cards sent to us by Hanko Designs when they sent the stamp and die order. Either one is sure to inspire you.

A very dear friend is celebrating her 91st birthday on Friday. I'm headed back to the work room to finish the card I'm making . . . it has to be 'youthful' and feminine because she is very young at heart, looks 20 years younger and loves beautiful things.

Do you think humor helps keep us young? I do!

I think this guy lives in the Boston MA area!

  1. I loved the article about white pens - very interesting, and thanks for sharing it. I noticed that their favorite white gel pen is the Uniball Signo Broad, which is the one that we carry at Art 'n Soul (because it's our favorite also!). The Pentel .08 pen is the one that I use for Zentangling onto black paper. It's not as opaque as the Uniball, but it has a thinner tip.
