Home for Christmas

DSCN3017 copy

As much as I would like to be going home for Christmas, we won't be.  Jeff always gets mad (well not mad but you know what I mean) when I say home and I mean home to Canada where my family is.  He says "this is your home.".  I know it is but when I am here I say Canada is home, when I am there, I call Arizona home. My little sister is getting married next year, so we will be going home for that, at least I will, not sure on the guys yet.

I wanted to make up a card to show off water coloring with the ink refills again, this is a different card then I show on my tutorial (my favorite thing to do is sit and color), and make mention of how easy it really is. I have a made up a tutorial to show you how to do it.  If you have found your way to my blog via Becky Roberts' blog, I want to thank you for coming, and I want to say a big THANK YOU to Becky! You are the sweetest girlfriend, you really are!

You can read more about the tutorial on this post. I want to thank all of you that have ordered the PDF so far and have let me know how much you appreciate it. I also figured out how to put the PayPal doohickee for the PDF on my sidebar.

The Tutorial is $3.95 and contains 7 pages of step by step instructions and color photos for Water Coloring With Ink Refills. The tutorial will be emailed to you as an Adobe PDF file following your purchase.

I am totally in love with these vintage trinkets, I love pinning tags on everything. It makes it quick and cute too.

I did some faux stitching on here, but when I get the new studio done I am actually going to have a place to leave my sewing machine and that makes me happy, I am sure I will sew more if I can leave my machine up.  Not mending sewing, I mean card sewing, had to get that out there so Jeff does not get all excited his pants are gonna get repaired, buttons added back on shirts, things like that. Whew! That was close.

Well I just got back from making a quick visit over to MAMMa's to say hi to Mandy and all the girls. It has been forever since I seen them all.  Now I am headed to bed.  I am getting up early. The antique place is having a sale and like a flea market thing in the parking lot.  I am hoping to get a great deal on a desk.  Ya just never know right?

I also have my Club girls coming over tomorrow afternoon, I'll show you the little goodie they are getting later.

Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in!
