this is the big smile that was on my face when i opened my mailbox and found a big padded envelope from stampington & co with this inside!
such a fun surprise before christmas when staci dumoski emailed me about featuring my blog in the next issue of artful blogging! ( it was a heart attack enough just seeing her name in my email inbox! )
i had a hard time waiting for my copy to arrive. i started seeing little peeks around blogland. i was ready to go buy a copy because i am so impatient, but my barnes and noble sold out in one day! lucky for me it arrived this week. ( i had plans to drive to the next barnes and noble 60 miles away :)
for the past two days i have been enthralled with the photos and text from all the inspiring blogs featured. right on the cover is a beautiful silver glitter star surrounded by roses by my art friend marilyn! her blog outside the lines is featured as well and shows such a lovely collection of her amazing photographs.
there is pink everywhere i look today! here is a stack of flocked hankies just waiting to be remade into some new project. the little heart is made from some vintage fabric i found at quilt market last spring and the tiny pearl beads are from a broken vintage necklace.
even more pink, here is the little card i made to go inside my art nest trades. i am having such a hard time printing off copies.
how do you do it??
i have tried scanning and printing, copying at the copy store, having the copy store scan and adjust the image and every time it comes out blurry because of the depth of the items i glued on. i dropped it off at the photo shop to have a digital image taken in a photo box but isn't there an easier way to get a nice image reproduced?
please share your tips. . .
then with all the pink happiness i've had this week the valentine fairy (my daughter hannah) stopped by and left this for me. she is sweet- the fairy and my hannah.
