I haven't had time to get into the my stamp room and create. My surgery went really well and I'm recovering. We got home from Anchorage on Tuesday evening. We left 40 degrees and beautiful days behind in Anchorage and came home to snow, snow and more snow.
I did get to some shopping while we were off 'the rock'. I found the greatest little stamp store in Anchorage called "The Stamp Attic". I could have spent hours in there. The first day I went in I bought a beautiful Thomas Kinkade stamp. I also splurged and picked up some Copic Markers. Carlie and I went back over the weekend, too. She was doing a class on how to use the Copics. We did the cutest make n take tag with the markers. I WAS HOOKED AT THAT POINT! We even dyed the ribbon to match our lil 'chicks'. She explained how important paper quality was, how the key to blending is making sure the paper is saturated, and how to use the colorless blender, too. So I came home with 10 copics, a Thomas Kinkade stamp, an A'Muse oval (I've been wanting that forever), and 2 of the new Ranger white gel pens. Oh yeah, and the new Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.
And then there was Michaels! I got a bunch of the baubles, too. (they are like the Bella Baubles or Dew Drops clear acrylic pieces) Pink, Blue and clear! I think I'll be set for a few months now. *wink* But I have to share with MariJean, so maybe I'll need to stock back up soon, though.
