Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

My Mind’s Eye

One of the fun online challenges this weekend at Scrapbook Steals was a layout of a little known fact about yourself.

I decided to mention that I don’t like lobster which many people probably do not know. Lots and lots of people like lobster. Since I grew up in Maine, you would think that I love it. Not the case. I think it’s just too hard to get the meat, too expensive and just isn’t a great taste for me.

Hello blog readers!

I went to the Stampfest event in Clearwater last weekend – wow, what a FUN time! I love seeing my stamping friends from all over during this yearly trek, seeing new stamping images and goodies! Of course I got a couple things (uh hem, maybe more than a couple) that I’m sure will be cropping up here from different projects that I’ll be doing.

I’d like to catch up on some cards and a mini mailbox that I’ve created lately using Ippity Stamps. I’ve enhanced my Ippity sales blog for a better view of the sets if you would like to take a look at the Product Info page. Feedback is always welcome!

I created this card for P K Glitz last month and thought you would like to see it! It’s a glittered mosaic card coupled with a heat embossed chipboard circle. The circle is double-embossed so that the greeting really has great dimension like the chipboard circle.

I attended a wedding in New England in late September, going to Cape Cod first for a couple days. I stayed in the Hyannis/Barnstable area and drove through Chatham and Provincetown sightseeing. While in Chatham, there was this great picture opportunity at the lighthouse. The day was beautiful and crisp – a lovely late Fall afternoon!

I just happened to find a great scrapbook store and purchased some embellishments to use when scrapbooking the pictures that I had just taken. Lucky wasn’t it? The twill and Sinamay ribbon were perfect to convey the old world charm of Cape Cod. I tied one of a zillion sailor’s knots for fun – love that wide twill! Stamping on it was easy since it was so flat and wide. Don’t forget to do that when you have the opportunity!
