Just a little tip...

If any of you are participating in the Thinking Inking class over at two peas, you know that last week Jennifer was talking about Dimensional Pearls and Liquid Pearls from Ranger. Although I absolutely LOVE Ranger products, they are not always available at the stores that have access too and I don't always have the money to pay for shipping from online retailers if I need something in a hurry. So I wanted to share a tip with those of you who have a similar issue. If you have a Michael's near you as well as some AC moore's & Joann's carry a similar product that works great. I didn't even own one bottle of liquid pearls but I do own MANY colors of Scribbles 3D Paint. It is actually meant for fabric but works fantastic with the tecniques Jennifer McGuire showed last week! I just wanted to share that with all of you that were not able to get the Ranger products. These are cheap too! haha!! Hope this helps someone out there!! Hers is what the bottle looks like and a card I made with the water color and stamp tecnigue from class 2 last week!

Thinking Inking

I started participating in the "Thinking Inking" class with Jennifer McGuire over at Two Peas. I have loved Distress Inks and Alcohol Inks since I first got my little hands on them but I didn't realize all of the awesome stuff you could do with them! I love the alcohol inks the most I think (if you could see my hands after making a card you would agree) they are just so much fun! So I'm going to share on of my favorites that I made and it was super easy! Thanks for stopping by!

Mourning My Computer

I am in deep mourning. I have had my Mac laptop for 7 years and it finally gave up on me. It wouldn't hold a charge, wouldn't let me connect to the internet, wouldn't even let me open Safari! I had to let it go and get a new computer :( After long consideration, I had to decide between living without a computer for a few months (haha) while I saved for a new Mac... or bought a PC laptop. I knew I couldn't wait a few months without internet, also considering I have an online business... but really couldn't live without the Peas for that long! hahaha. So I bought a Gateway. I have been so out of the PC loop that I thought Gateway was still a crap company and Dell was the only way to go. Little did the Mac girl know that Dell is down the bowl and Gateway is one of the better companies! Yay for me cause Gateway was cheaper! haha. So the very nice boy at Best Buy directed me to this lovely computer that I am typing on right now. It's very strange to be on a PC format and probably will take me a few days to get used to it, but besides that I'm happy :) But as the title of my post reads, I am still in deep mourning. So sad. Poor Mac.

New Scrappy Budget

I really am not very happy although I understand the reasoning behind this new budget I'm on. I only have $50 a MONTH to spend now and I know this is going to be really hard. Especially because the 1 thing I really want is pretty over $50 online and I can't find it in a store. All I want is a BIND IT ALL!!! It's driving me nuts that I can't find one and that I have this new limit to my supplies. I know in reality I probably don't NEED to spend even $50 a month but I usually spend more than that anyway. I think I may go crazy! If you have a scrap budget, how on earth do you stick to it!?!? Ok, off to do my mini for week 4! lol
