rambling blah blah blah

i got the most amazing christmas card from lezlishae. she cross stitched little gifts and put them on the card front. you can see them being worked on in her ttmt vid here. thank you shae!!!! ive been trying to figure out how to get the cross stitch out of there and turn it into a magnet like this one to the left that i got in a swap once :0). i have also been getting tons of christmas cards with family photos on them and that is just love. thanks guys! i LOVE getting cards with pictures. LOVE IT! and its been super fun to get mail that isnt bills at the new house. definitely makes it feel more like home.



i got a super fantastic awesome response from my marbled ball ornament tutorial vid and i just wanted to say thanks. y'all made me blush with all your kind words. im glad i could inspire you to try something new. i cant wait to see the creations. also i got some GREAT tips too! here they are:
  • if you cant find clear ball ornaments where you are or if you just have a "green" christmas on the top of your holiday wish list, try recycling old colored balls to get the color off and have a blank canvas. go here to learn how! thanks for that link beshneela!
  • my friend heather schott posted this tip for me on youtube: "Hiya Pren, I did the rinse of 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water and let them dry for an hour. Used Delta Ceramcoat metallics and opaques... have some that are 10 yrs old & still look good. :-) I should do this again! " so you CAN use metalics!!! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. SOOOOOO going to the store to buy more paint tomorrow :0D
the Black and white challenge is still happening at Wordless Wednesday. dont forget to post your entries before the due date to win a prize. you can read all about it here. there have been some fantastic submissions and the competition will be fierce. :0) i am soooo impressed with what all of us amature photographers have come out with so far.



hhmmmmm. i guess thats it for today guys. the YOLWOM is going well. The Chad and i got all the must have furniture for the new house that we needed and didnt put a thing on the plastic! WOOT WOOT! the unpacking is still progressing and should be all done by the new year.....maybe. hahaha. working at california pizza kitchen is going well. im not rolling the the big loot but its getting me by and i cant complain about that :0)

The piece of paper should peel right off, but the fabric surrounding the cross stitch might not be big enough to turn into anything. It is a really small piece.

And I finally managed to take a picture and post it on Wednesday! I always forget and feel like a dummy by the time Thursday comes around. :P

Shae's cards are stunning, aren't they?

Your tutorial was amazing, you should definitely be proud!

There should be a box showing up on your doorstep before too long...
