Blog Vacation

Hey Crafters,

I don't often discuss my private life at work, I prefer to keep things as separate as I can.  Unfortunately sometimes life throws you a big old dose of realty.  Over the last year I have dealing with some ongoing health issues.  Running a full time business has certainly made my efforts to get well more difficult.  I realize now that I need to take some time and really focus on healing.  Over the next couple of weeks we will be revealing some much needed changes we will be making at My Creative Classroom to lighten my load.

Project Storage: Rub-Ons

Hey Crafters,

This week's topic is rub-ons.  Essentially rub-ons can be stored the same way stickers are stored.  There is some evidence that it may be best to store your rub-ons flat.  So binder or file folder might be best.  Right now mine are stored on a modified shoe rack.

May 5th Topic: Rub-Ons

Happy Monday,

It is a new week so we have a new topic.  This week we will be working with rub-ons.  I must admit I don't really have very many rub-ons.  I never got hooked on them when they got hot.  Which is not the norm for me. LOL!  But I do have a few and, as always, I am looking forward to working with them.

May 2nd Projects: Paint

It is time to play with paint.  While it is indeed Monday instead of Friday....it is always a good time to play with paint. :)  Even though paint is messy, I find it to one of the most satisfying mediums to work with.  I love that I can easily create any color I want to just my mixing a few colors together.  In my stash of idea books, I have one that shows you how to mix certain colors together.  I highly recommend a color mixing book.  

Project #36-Project Inspiration
I wanted to leave the brush strokes so I could easily identify it as paint in my ATC display.

Project Storage: Paint

Hey Crafters,

It is time to talk about storage.  Paint is actually pretty easy to store and there are many, many options for you to choose from depending on how much paint you have.  I do not have a ton of paint so they fit easily in the draw below.  Most of my paint comes from Ranger.  As I have said before I am NOT a big fan of the dauber they use, but I love the colors and thickness of the paint.

For those of you who have fallowed me for awhile, you know I like to keep it simple.  Using Ranger paints falls into this system because I also use their ink pads, embossing powders and stains.  Everything works together so nicely.  That is a huge plus for me.
