5 Things I'm Lovin'

Hey there Bloggers.  It's been another crazy week - The new class Schedule at work is out  so I've been frantically trying to get my class examples finished so that they are ready. Hmmm...good luck with that ;) Anyway, to try and get my creative Mojo going I thought I'd do my five fave things list a little early.  So, here goes:

1.  Hero Arts

I love this stamp company, they have a great range of stamps in clear, cling and wood. I have the owl stamp used in the card below and love to dress it up (re: my Halloween card) I love how this person on the Hero Arts blog dressed it up with a hat, shoes and pearls - hilarious!  And that other card is just cracking me up!

2.  Arian Armstrong

These prints are done by Arian Armstrong.  I've been stalking her blog ever since I stumbled upon it.  She's an artist that sells her stuff on her blog or etsy, you can custom order prints for your kiddies for their room.  Very cute.  Maybe I should commission her to create me a print with Frogs and Chickens in it (with maybe an owl peeking out ;)

I cannot wait until our Stampendous order arrives at the shop!  I am actually quite excited by alot of the new stamps that they just released at CHA.  Not just these great ones but also some really good collections of sayings and sentiments. So soon it will be - good-bye pay cheque, hello stamps ;)

4.  Prima

I know, I know! Some of you will be very shocked that Prima has made my top 5 list (I am SO not normally a girly girl ;) but I ambushed Fiona as she was unpacking 2 enormous boxes that arrived at the shop on Monday and there were the most stunning metal trinkets in there!  I'm in love.

5.  Distress Inks

I know it's no surprise to most of you that I am ever so slightly (snort!) obsessed by Distress Inks.  I find that they are one of my go-to items when I'm in mortal combat with the Mojo-Monster (you know, the beast that drains all of your creative ideas out of your ear when you are sleeping, until you wake up in the morning and can barely operate scissors? ;)  I think I've been reading too much Jim Butcher ;)
Any hoo, I love them and am slowly building up my stash.  I love them for their versatility - you can ink with them, stamp with them, paint with them, the uses are endless.  I'm also using the re-inkers in my technique trio class.

Well, that's enough of my rambling, I'm off to my sick-bed, I suspect I've caught one of the many bugs that the kids bring home from School and Daycare :(
You know it's bad when you don't want coffee ;)
Have a great night!
