Tomorrow is Play Day at Art 'n Soul . . . Marj will be there playing with Shrink Plastic and all the ways you can create with it. If you don't want to play with shrink plastic, bring in whatever you want to play with . . . there are no rules. It might be a good time to work on your Christmas cards!

Whatever you want to play at, please be sure to bring what you need in supplies and materials to play with. Marj is recommending these items if you want to work on the shrink plastic:  your heat tool, stamps you wish to use (large images are best), sanding block, quarter-inch hole punch (if you wish to make tags), and StazOn or Brilliance ink, as well as your shrink plastic. If you don't have shrink plastic, there are sets available for purchase at the store.

Dreamweaver Stencils are gearing up for the holiday season. Take a look at this beautiful card by Lynell Harlow entitled "Poinsettia Molten Magic".

Karen Aicken has made a beautiful wine bottle label, perfect for gift giving. I made variations of this label a few years back for a friend's birthday present; her birthday falls 23 days before Christmas and they give wine they bottle every summer. They were very well received and it didn't take much time once I started; I had 24 to make. Check this out from the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog.

This piece of art from the RubberMoon blog really caught my eye today. I see so many of the little stamps I've collected from RubberMoon, and it seems there is something new I see each time I look at the photo.

There just has to be some way to add more hours to the day. Although today, it wouldn't matter because my eyes just will not stay open and it's early yet. Dark, but early. Tomorrow is my great-granddaughter's first birthday celebration at her Tutu's Mickey Mouse birthday clubhouse just for this special occasion. That will be followed by a birthday party for my husband's uncle who turns 80-something and looks like he's just turning 70 -- they're planning an event at a collector's private 'museum' of his cars in Sumner and an old-fashioned hamburger barbecue. So I hope to see you back here tomorrow night!

A very good friend shared this photo with me, thinking
it could be a picture of a party for Hannah, our Bichon.
Wouldn't that be a party!
