Needle Felted Gnomes

How freakin' cute are these guys?????

My local yarn shop From Ewe to You here in Lower Sackville teaches classes, and the last one that I went to was THIS ONE!!  Needle Felted Gnomes.  

Oh. My. Gosh, I am in love.  So fun, quick and easy to do.  I love making them....can you tell??

Cleaning your clear mount blocks.

Always a good thing to clean your clear mount blocks. 
It helps those stamps stick better too!! 
Not only do we get ink, adhesive and other stuffs on them but we are constantly touching them (of course!) and the oils and dirt/germs from our hands (and our stampers hands if we share our blocks at classes/clubs!) get all over the blocks.


SO, grab your clear mount blocks, some tissue/paper towel, baby wipes and hand sanitizer.


Love love love this case!  Don't have one yet?  I highly suggest getting one.  Host an event with me and you can earn one for free with your hostess benefits!!  Contact me today.  :-)


Take a quick look at this video tutorial (it is a short one...promise!!) on how to keep those blocks clean and those stamps mounted for perfect images every time.

Storing my blendabilities....

This is a challenge for me.
Where to store them? How to store them?
Must be lying down...but they take up so much space! 

I am also not completely organized in my new craft space so that makes it even more of challenge.

WELL, I think I have found a solution!  :-)
I had some extra wood mount stamp cases...


Some left over Christmas coloured elastic ribbon...

 

Add to that my scissors, crop-a-dile, paper piercer,jewelry making pliers and VOILA!

       

I have three cases full of blendabilities!! 

First I used the crop-a-dile to punch holes in the sides of the case, two on each side.

Then on the spine of the case I used my paper piercer to mark four holes, two at one end, two at the other.  Once I marked and made small holes I used these jewelry pliers to make the holes big enough to push my elastic ribbon through.  It was all I had on hand that would work!! LOL

                           
You want all of your holes to line up so that your elastic that goes on looks like this.

 
Double or triple knot all your ends so that they won't pull through the holes in your case.


                     

                                 

They are all together, not rolling around everywhere.  They are lying down so they stay inked and they are easy to grab and use when needed.
*sigh*  works for me!!!
:-)

Try your own! 
Happy Organizing!

Sideways Wristerz

Another knitting project!!
These are keeping me nice and toasty!

Sometimes mitts are too much but it is too cold not to have ANYTHING on your hands.

I came across this pattern on Ravelry and it was a quick one evening knit.  LOVE LOVE LOVE the yarn too!  I lost my label or I would tell you all about it.  :-(  






Happy Knittin'!
