New Goodies from Stamp'n Up! {WOYWW}

If you saw the post below than you already know that I got to meet a brand new baby girl last night! She was born about two hours before I took that shot. I got to hold a tiny little person that had only been in the world for about two hours. And she is AMAZINGLY active for having only been around for a couple of hours! That little Ava was exploring her surroundings already! She desperately wants to suck her thumb, but she hasn't quite figured out how to get it out from under her little fist of fingers yet. She grips like you wouldn't believe, too! And...she makes adorable little fishy faces. I'm not usually much of a baby person 'cause they generally don't do much, but MAN was Ava fun to watch!

SOoooo...that meant no creating last night, but that's okay. My desk is back to it's usual mess, but you CAN see the fun stuff I just got from Stamp'n Up!

WOYWW 30 March 2011


Yup! I finally broke down and got some watercolor crayons! I am really excited to try them, but I think I need to find some tutorials or something because they came with precisely ZERO instructions. Or...I'll just play and figure it out! HA! I also got some super fun stamps - 2 sets, I just combined them into one case for simple storage. This is the first time I've bought their cling stamps and I am loving it! They are so much easier to use and to store! And...no trees were lost. *Love.* Just say'n. I also picked up some hemp and some Baja Breeze glass glitter because I'm kinda sorta obsessed with glass glitter. A little bit. Kinda. Sorta. Just say'n.

Soooo...anyway....

...that pretty much sums it up. I have a super cute little mini album to share with you tomorrow or Friday that I made for Ava (well, for Alex, her mom, but you know how that goes...)

OH! And Pinterest...yeah, totally loving that. Fun stuff.

Well, I guess that is enough of my ranting and prattling for today. See you on the morrow!

Oh wow, there's a lot about SU that I didn't know! Watercolor crayons...didn't know they sold them. But I would need major tutorials if I were going to buy them. I'm sure you will figure it out in no time!

Can't wait to see what you come up with with those watercolors. I haven't used them in YEARS and I wasn't very good with them LOL.

Lovin' your workdesk. You are going to love watercolor crayons. Basically you color like you would with crayons, and then use a wet paint brush to smear/blend them. I can't wait to see your creations.

Jan said...

All kinds of goodies and I'm sure you'll put each to good use :)

Marlene said...

Good luck with the water color crayons. I bought some last year and I totally SUCK playing with them! If anyone can do it, though, you can!

Marjo said...

Love the watercolor crayons! I use a blender pen with mine or a water brush. Love your post today. Ava sounds like a sweetie already! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #83

Jean said...

Oh my what a doll that one is, she will be so much fun to have around. I assume you live close enough to see lots of her. Any way I saw your post and wanted to tell you of yet another way to use those crayons, you can touch your not to wet brush directly to the crayon and it gives you just a bit more color. Hope you enjoy Ava and the crayons!
