This morning I was reading all the new entries in my blog reader and was excited to see that Crafty Secrets was holding their first linky party! Any projects created using Crafty Secrets products are eligible to join the linky fun and I love their “Heartwarming Vintage” stamps since I am such a fan of vintage illustrations!
Sandy from Crafty Secrets was having a little trouble figuring out how to set up the linky tool and me being the veteran blogger/web designer/internet aficionado that I am, I gave her a call and helped walk her through it. I really don’t think I was much help but you know, when you want to join a challenge, you do what you gotta do to make it happen, right?
It felt good to make a card “just for fun” today. I have been trying so hard to focus on deadlines and business promotion projects, but really I papercraft for the love of it and need to take time to keep that in perspective. Tonight my hubby is in a late meeting and I live for that monthly late night crafting session!
Sometimes I think I’ll get rid of the thirty or so Copic markers that I have. I love coloured pencils and watercolour pencils for colouring so much more. In my teens I spent a year or two working exclusively in coloured pencil before I turned to watercolour. Right now I am also going through a slight obsession with calligraphy, buying dip pens and nibs and fountain pens and at this point I have so many pen nibs that I’m pretty sure that I need to blame the hand and not the pen for my sad attempts at lettering!
All this babbling is just to say that I am doing artsy things. And I love my stamps and had fun with my Crafty Secrets sets this afternoon! Check out the linky party on their blog here and play along!
