My little office friend - Part 2

Well my little office friend isn't so alone after all. As it turns out he/she does have a mate. Having my office window open today at work I heard a few chirp, chirps and low and behold there was another Killdeer. I was so happy to see them chasing each other with their hurried little sprints across the grass. Not sure you can tell but I am somewhat of a nature lover:). It makes me smile inside!

My little office friend

This is my little friend that is hanging around outside my office window every day. I decided to take his picture as I had never seen this type of bird around here before. As it turns out he is called a "Killdeer". But he looks so gentle:) He's there day after day all alone with no partner in sight. I kinda hope that he is the Daddy looking for food and there is a Mommy close by somewhere maybe tending to some litte ones. Everyone should have someone!!! Right???

Monday blahs!!!

Well here it is Monday again! Boy, how fast the weekends fly by! After a nice weekend of spending some time in my craft room I'm back to the office. I do find it difficult sometimes to be creative on the weekends especially when the nice weather is here.
I'd like to know when you find the best time to be creative. On those nights when I have trouble sleeping I find myself designing cards in my head. I never used to do this but now I write my ideas down otherwise they might be gone for good. Oh the joys of getting older!!
On that note, enjoy your Monday and the beginning of your week whatever you might be doing, working or not. Happy creating!!!

Alcohol Inks Revisited

I would like to share with you an old card that I created a few years back. I did this using a variety of alcohol inks by first laying down the colours and blending with the blending solution. Next, I stamped the tree stamp with permanent black ink. Et voilĂ ....
Simple but very effective. Sometimes less really is more!!!!
So dust off those bottles of alcohol inks and give it a try! You'll love the results.

These are 2 wine bottle tags that I made for my neighbours as a little thank-you,

Saturday, May 19, 2012

Well I believe the summer weather has finally arrived here. It's about time!!! Unfortunately not too much will get accomplished in my craft room this weekend as it is also flower planting weekend. Probably the busiest weekend of the summer and the outdoor flower markets proved that. I am working on 2 wine bottle gift tags to show you though. Stay tuned.......
