So, this is the start of something much bigger. I originally was thinking this piece would go on my right ribcage, but its too big and I didn’t want to sacrifice the size. So, after a few attempts of trying to convince me this piece would look best on a shoulder, Stephan got the line transfer on me and I like it. so he zipped in and after 3-1/2 hours, I am outlined, shaded and partially colored. On the 15th i go back in for the rest of the color and i'm going to talk to him about working our way across to the other side. I have a few ideas that I would like to encorperate into a back piece, but i fully plan on havind my upper back/shoulders completely covered. infact i think i want them to roll over my shoulders a little but so something will end up behind the scissor handles for instance. More photos to come once we're done with the process. its been fun so far. glad i did this.
Yesterday we had a crop event at Memories Live On (which was super fun) but on the way there I was like 60 seconds behind an accident where this young girl had turned her truck around backwards and flipped it onto its side. I didn’t see the accident itself, and I was like 10 cars back, so I did see 10or so people rush out of their cars, open the passenger door to this truck and help the girl out. Something all of us would do, right? But then one of the women in this group of helpers gave this girl and amazing hug that even I could see that this stranger cared about this other stranger. Restored a little faith that people don’t just suck. Something I wish I encountered more.
Speaking of crop, yesterday we hosted Crop Blue. We decided we wanted to do more than Scrap Pink to help aid our shopping habits and those who need so much. This crop we donated to March of Dimes and it was a huge hit! We had some great make&takes and, my favorite part, got to spend the day making with some great friends. This card was my make&take. I kinda over ordered on embellishments for February’s The Sampler so I used a few bits and pieces from there.
Since I'm feeling inspired by those who share things atm, leave me a comment and I have one pack of these sihlouttes left along with some of the trims I didn’t end up using that could end up on your door. I think I will take comments until march 6th, which is when I will randomly pick the winner for the HUGE giveaway for The Sampler over at the crop spot! Be sure to check that out too whilst you’re at it!!!
ok, i'm working on this altered house thats trying to fight with me. must show it whom is boss! rarr!!!!
happy sundays kiddos!

the bird & the worm came on when i was driving to the store today and its totally stuck in my head. its a happy, catchy, upbeat, pedestrian song. Matches my mood. yes, i feel kinda pedestrian today. but possibly on lollerskates rather than on foot...
today is the big day in terms of being more painted than before. i'm excited. i'm really effing curious as to what Stephan's drawing is going to look like this time. Stephan is my new buddy who pokes thousands of little holes in people and applys ink. love his business card it featuers a zombie and says "i'm not dead......i'm just swedish". interesting little fella.
so, has everyone seen the Hambly limited ed. prints from their new releases! i dropped by a few weeks ago and snagged some for myself. Mainly the doily decor! Snag some whilst you still can!! i'm on the verge of placing orders for the kit club & store and super excited about there new stuffs!! really digging the rub-ons.
anywho, back to works!

so lately i've rekindled some friendships with some old friends around the internets. why did i ever leave these people, i have no idea! BUT, super stoked to have them back and spend sometime with them whilst i'm chipping away at the craftings. today i did some housekeeping and thats pretty well taken up the day. so many new things to play with i dont even know whree to start. i have a few mini albums going and tons of make & takes in progress. i really hope to get a few new classes out to rock in the next few months. its been a while, but its time...

today i put up a new giveaway over at The Crop Spot from The Sampler featuring a selection of goodies from kits past, present and furture. not that it isnt the case every month, but i am so infatuated with February’s details that I am just at a loss for words. I’m working on a little maya road suitcase turned shadow box. I will have to post finished images later on. its just too cute and its all thanks to the bits from feb’s Sampler.
In other news, I did not get anything inked on me last night. The guy put the transfer on me and we just weren’t digging it. so we came up with a new plan, but the thing is going to be huge. We decided that the scissors would look best life size so I will have a pair of 8” gingher dressmaker’s sheers on my ribs come next thurs. I’m stoked.
Talk to you kids later!

I feel like my own little side show. bouncing to and fro. all is well at the store. lots of new stuff coming in. The Sampler looks hot for March. Completely stoked about that. I'm still waiting on shipments from vendors for April's kit, but I have high hopes.
In other news. tonight, i'm going to take my gingher scissors to ye olde tattoo shop and see what i walk out of there with... i've been contemplating this for a while and i cant shake the image of these trusty scissors when i think of crafting. the guy on the phone sounded intrigued. i didnt think craft tattoos were that odd, but i guess Santa Cruz isnt know for its crafters? shame.
