I had a vision....

And it worked. Do you have kids? Are you looking for things to entertain them for more than 3 minutes? EVERYONE loves bubbles. They have saved me many times. I had bought these at Walmart for 1.00

They are nice because they come in different colors too. Hey a dollar?? Can't go wrong. Plus you can refill them. Well I had this idea that because of the colors they could be made cooler, prettier, for girls, cooler for boys. So I thought maybe I could stamp them in Stazon. I did it and look, it came out great!!!! I even had my 3yo and 6yo helping me.

Here are the finished ones:

I laid my clear stamps on my table, inked them, then rolled the bubbles over them. I made some small flowers with fabric paint. If I had more Stazon colors, I could have stamped everything. But, I only have purple, black, and dark green. Can you say psyched!!! 2 of them are birthday gifts for a party we are going to tomorrow, and 2 are for my 2 favorite redheads. Here is a close up, because I am blog challenged and don't know if when you click it gets bigger or not.

Thanks for looking.

Luxury Monogram

I got the Luxury Stack, from DCWV for 50% off at Joannes--woooo hooo. I stamped the circle from PTI boxes and tags in a brown to match some of the swirlys. This set was ordered from my sister for a teacher. It is really sparkly IRL. I just love making monograms----can you tell???LOL

Martha Monogram

My nephew got married in a civil service to his fiancee. They plan to have a big wedding celebration when they've saved up some more money, but in the meantime, I wanted to give them something to acknowledge the very special commitment they have made to each other. I wish them lots of love and happiness, and although not always easy, a loving, truthful marriage is one of the special sacraments of life. Blah, blah, blah, enough of that. I stamped the monogram filigree stamp from Martha Stewart in Pallete spring moss, and put the Brenda Walton Clear stamps in the middle for Josh and Natalie. These are single note cards (1/4 sheet of 8.5 x 11). I figured they'd be nice to use for quick thank yous or if they wanted to send out pictures of their wedding. I love packaging nice ensembles in the clear boxes. Thanks for looking.


I love this Dress Up Lily set. I 'm still learning at positioning it and still working with my copics. I Love coloring her to look like the person I'm sending it to.
