I am working on LK Ludwig's Point and Shoot Photo Journaling One online class. This is what I made tonight. She is offering a special deal through March 31st, so hurry up and register if you are interested in photos, journaling, and art making!
I am storing my mounted stamps in inexpensive plastic boxes from the school section of Target.
I repurposed cardboard from my husband's beer box to separate the font types inside the plastic storage box.
You can purchase these wood block sets from Traci Bunker's Etsy Shop (see link below).
These alphabets are mounted on "Quickie Mount" that I purchased years ago at a rubber stamp show. I tried using scissors, but an x-acto blade worked best.
This weekend, I spent many hours mounting rubber stamps to wood blocks and to foam. I purchased rubber sheets from Traci Bunkers recently, and also had some from Teesha Moore from a purchase I made years ago. I love fonts, and I love to see text in my journals, so I am finally making the effort to get my *#?@ together. I was inspired by Lisa Sonora Beam's book The Creative Entrepreneur. In it she talks about making a creative business plan. On Lisa's blog, she talks about making a planner to help you achieve your business plan goals. She assures us that it is OK to start your planner whenever you want to. It doesn't have to begin in January of the new year. I am still thinking about how to set mine up, but the mounting of these rubber stamp alphabets was one step closer to creating my own DIY planner.
What are your favorite alphabet stamps to use? Where did you get them? How do you store them? Do you organize by letter or by font style? Inquiring minds want to know!
I can't even tell you the last time I was out bowling, until this afternoon. I didn't really expect to like it, or to do very well. I am not the most athletic individual. I bowled over 100 my first game, then I bowled 120 my second game! I was pretty pleased! It was great fun. I highly recommend the activity if you are looking for something to do with friends or family. It is even great for children as young as 3 years of age (with those special ball ramps to use).
If you live in Minneapolis, Elsie's is a great place to bowl!
t Jane Evershed, an amazing woman and artist. I was welcomed into the gallery a bit early, which was really fun for me, as I like time and space to soak everything in. I took a lot of photos, with permission. There aren't words to describe how great I felt being among am
azing art, women, and women artists. What a night!
I encourage you to visit Joan of Art on May 22nd for the closing of Jane Evershed's and Kimber's shows.
Just wanted to let you know that my very talented friend has opened her own Etsy Shop. I am so excited for her. I tweeted about it, but am also posting the info for you here. You can find more of her "whimsical bird houses" at www.erinzart.etsy.com
I have been reading a book called Writing Down Your Soul by Janet Conner. If you enjoy books about writing, especially where spirituality is also touched on, you'll love this book. Go to the book's website here.
Was lucky at work today and snapped up a free polaroid camera (takes 600 film) and two packs of odd shaped polaroid film. My husband discovered the odd shaped film works in a polaroid 430. Cameras and film are oh so exciting, wouldn't you agree?!
