Secret Santas!!!!  On-line and at work - especially when Physio or some of the other departments do a scavenger hunt Secret Santa.  So much fun.  Also our annual gathering I have with our friends from high school - silly gifts, lots of good food, and silly fun.

That is so kind of you Smiley. We did look for a Cuttlebug but Michaels in Canada no longer carries them Sad. I'll have to check next time we visit the states.
She has been making all day, I will post pics somewhere this week as she's keen to share. She is so creative, it's really inspiring.


Costco carries it online if you have a membership or know someone with a membership!  They can order it and have it shipped directly to you.  Or get the Sizzix Big Shot - they have that at Michaels and it is covered by the 50% coupon when they have it.

LOL - I just thought that it was a picture that showed some of my sly, snarky eyes, but also hid the chin fat well Smiley

But seriously, I hate that thick soft stamping material - Softoleum is the name I think???  The thinner stuff takes so much more detail better from what I have tried in the past.

I've been thinking of most of you this weekend. I've been at a scrapbooking conference in Tulsa. I now own my first gelli plate thanks to the encouragement I've received from several of you. We'll see how it goes.

I volunteered as a teacher's assistant this afternoon for Angelica, the paper designer for Heartfelt Creations, and learned several new papercrafted flower techniques. They may show up in the next round of Onyxnox's Xmas tags swap.

Then I helped work the crop this evening. As I was setting up tables in the classroom space that Queen & Co used today, Michael and one of his staff were packing up their class materials. The young woman asked what she should do with two very large containers of micro-glitter (about 5-6 cups in each). Michael said they weren't using it for any more of their class projects, so just throw it away. GASP! Instead, she offered it to me. Naturally I accepted. Look for gold and/or green glitter to appear on the next round of my cards.  Grin

As a volunteer I also received free products of my choice from the Creating Keepsakes booth. Anyone familiar with Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens? I now own 4, but have very limited ideas about how to use them. I'd appreciate any insight that you might have.

Use them to blend/apply separate colours directly on your stamp before stamping!  It is archival and waterproof, so you can still go over with inks or water colour afterwards too.  They probably would be good for adding freehand words to something after decorating too for brushed hand lettering.

I have been thinking about a seasonal tag/card swap again.  That time of year is coming up soon!

It's how I wiled away time sitting in the nursing station for my shift when I was a camp nurse.  Especially on rainy days, it could be super boring in there, so I wrote long letters and tore apart many a magazine making envelopes.   I had taken apart the seams of a regular A2 sized envelope and made a template with that from stiff card board.  I would position it over the page to find where the best placement was, to get the best visual image.  It was fun - in my old papers, I have found the portfolio I had at camp - I think my old template is in there somewhere.  At one point, a bunch of the other activity counselors were also making them for their letters home.

On saying that, I bought some plastic templates last year at a local paper crafting store.

Those air freshener holders doohickeys that can hold a gel air freshener - like those air wick things that you used to open up and the chunk of scented gel would slowly dry up as it releases scent.  As for Squirrel pie - you may say it doesn't fit, but I am with a hunter, from a family of hunters, and I do have some recipe books (his) that have various recipes for different squirrel dishes.  I am sure there is a squirrel pot pie in there somewhere!

If I send to the US and use the shipping service I have been using lately, it may include tracking.  But if I were to use Canada Post, it may count as a small package and not include tracking.
