Bought some goodies!

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone having a great day... It a beautiful day here in Bay City. It been chilly for the last few days. My dad said it was chilly early this morning. But it did warm up when we went out and about. I had to pay some bills. I decided to go to Jo Ann's and pick up some stuff like stamps and extra ink pad. I pick up some bird stamps and some Memento black ink and one other thing that got my eye. It's called a "Rubber Stamp Pad" I guess it suppose to leave good ink impressions. I'm going to try that out and see how it works. I didn't pick a lot of things since I knew my order form was coming today!

I went to look for some Pioneer page protectors but they didn't have them. So, I decided to go to Meijer and look around it been while since I been in Meijer. I found some page protectors and even bought a Pioneer photo album that you can put about 300 photos in. Because I got most of our photos including some of both of my grandmother photos. So I have enough to put in I even pick up a photo box (plastic) that had little photo cases inside where you can keep your photos in. Also, pick up some smaller clear blocks for my stamps. Can't have too many now can you!? I guess only thing I need is Tim Holtz distress ink guess I have to go to Michael's in Saginaw to get those...
When I got home my package was waiting for me! I was excited to open it I love the Tom Holtz stamp called Road Trip, I order with the Bo Bunny Et Cetera Collection 12x12 paper and 36 pages of the same paper but smaller the 6x6 pad. I can use that for journaling information or for photos. I also got Rangers Archival Ink- Jet Black and last but not least I didn't know that the clear block would be big 6x6 but I should have realize but it'll work will with my larger stamps.

Now, I guess I'm going to play around with my stamps for bit. But going to watch some youtube clips before I start. Then after that do some stamping artwork and put on some Hulu or Netflix don't know which one yet. While I do my artwork. Have a good one guys. Here are some photos of the items I bought and my order that came in the mail.

I'm Back!!!


I'm back at trying to blog again. I decided to redesign this site give it a little bit of an updated look, lol. I don't know where this blog will go but for now decided to put to good use by displaying some of my artwork on here. For some of you to look at if you want to. Nothing much going on in my life at the moment still trying to look for a new job. I didn't think looking for work would be hard but it is. But not trying to think of it too much just trying to live everyday to the fullest and keep myself busy with my artwork. Even keeping up with what going on in the world.

I have started to scrapbook now and getting into it more it helping me be more creative in new ways. I'm in the process of making three scrapbooks one for each of my three grandparents. I'm also going to try and do a scrapbook of all the animals. We had over the years and we had few interesting and funny animals. I just started to write the stories for the animals. Now, now have to wait for my stuff to arrive! I order some scrapbook supplies more paper!!! Yeah more paper then what I know what to do with. But it good to have some extra paper on hand. It'll work with my heritage family albums. I even bought some stampes and ink to try out. The stampes I bought it called "Road Trip" from Tim Holtz. I really enjoy Tim Holtz work he is one of the few creative guys out there. Whom, stuff I really enjoy. Hope you all have a great Friday evening and a great weekend!
