A Fairy Mess – Coloring While Watching House of Cards

Fairy Sunset

Do you know this feeling? A friend or colleague mentions a new TV show and says that you HAVE to watch it and when you do you are so thrilled that you can’t stop… That happened to me at the beginning of this week. My colleague told me about House of Cards on Netflix and because I like Kevin Spacey, I started watching an haven’t stopped since.

So I stamped and blended one color from every manufacturer I own and made a video for you (and me of course… I was curious as well πŸ™‚ ). Colored Ink Comparison These are the inks …

You can imagine that our Christmas was filled with unpacking and getting everything setup. But I’m back and my New Years resolution is to be more crafty πŸ™‚ I have no idea how to proof at the end that I was, but just lets get started with my first card for 2016. Who …


Four Christmas Tags and One Card

Christmas Tags

Well hello there! Today is one of those days where I actually didn’t feel the urge to craft something. But I decided to just sit on my desk and do something. And here is what came out of it: A lot of Christmas Tags πŸ™‚ Tag One I started with a simple Hanukkah gift tag. I used Lawn Fawn’s “I love you a Latke” and colored it with Copic’s.
