holy cow!!  spring for a day!!

it’s been so sunny and bright, i forget that it’s still only february and we have months more to go of the grey-ness and the cold…  or maybe i’m just trying to ignore that fact.  the girls have been so good and such a pleasure lately, we’ve been playing and having all kinds of fun.  they’ve been going to bed earlier (and getting up earlier), but i love it when we have a little routine that’s working out for us.  hope it sticks around like the gorgeous weather!

mug shrinky dinks - set of 6

 i’m really going to get around to listing these in the shop  shortly… i haven’t made shrinky dinks since we got the new toaster oven.  it might be time to drag that stuff out again.  i wanted to make some swirly steam for these mugs, but i’ll wait for next time i have to list them. 

we have the sizzix “big whatever” at work  now, they say you can use it with ANY dies, so i’m making plans for new dies to buy and new designs for the shrinkies!  with the weather today, i’m dreaming of flowers and ladybugs, and all things SPRING!  if only i can keep myself away from facebook long enough to make anything!  =D

you likie my shrinkies…

BUT my stalker-readers, the quiet types just coming to browse tell a different story…

i can see that people are using me for my shrinky dinks.  i’m wondering if i should step up my dinking game…  i’m not sure how, but i’m just wondering….  and don’t even get me started on the latest in the dunkin donuts saga.  other than to say YOU DON’T PUT FRICKIN’ *CREAM* IN ICED TEA.  really.  (and what’s a dunkin donuts hole punch?!!?)

moving on, yet standing still

August 26, 2008

sooooo much happening, and there’s even more on the horizon…  so much!!  yikes!!  and yet, with all this “kitting” and creating directions and taking pictures for Scrap Can Do!, the planning for a series of classes for i-don’t-know-how-many-people, classes at the store, preparing to send beanie to PRESCHOOL, i can shrink some stuff…. maybe it’s my form of therapy.  i’ve really bonded with my toaster oven.Set of 4 - Houndstooth Star Magnets - Black and Whitehoundstooth!  who woulda thunk it?!

my toaster oven deserves a vacation.

August 22, 2008

i just finished making 300 shrinky dinks for an order.  and 18 more for someone else.  and a dozen or so more for me.  i love doing big batches of things, i feel like i’ve accomplished so much!  and i might not be able to bend my fingers tomorrow, all that exacto-cutting and what not.  HARD WORK!  =D


i hand punched 216 of these flowers.  i only needed 180 for the order, but i figured that while i was at it, i might as well make some for etsy stock.  then i punched holes in them to make them buttons.  there’s only 214 at this point because i got a little crazy with the hole puncher.

with button holes 

then they got a swirl of black ink and a toast in the toaster oven.  have a look!

finished product 

 then just for fun, i made 120 of these:

120 mini frames 

i can safely say that i have mastered the time and temp of shrinky dinks.   now i’m looking for other fun colors and shapes and things to shrink!!!

1 more, then i PROMISE i’ll move on….

August 14, 2008

i’ll get to the interesting stuff – the cleaning of the little fan in the girls’ room, the fact that there are 6 LARGE cans of baked beans in my pantry, and i don’t especially CARE for baked beans….  all that stuff will come later.  but for tonight – MORE SHRINKY DINKS!!!

craft 365 - day 289 by you.

can’t wait to see my electric bill from constantly running the toaster oven!! heehee…

more fun with shrinky dinks!

August 14, 2008

so i dabbled in halloween, but i’m kinda over it, for this second.  i moved right into christmas. made some shopping bags and some partridge shrinky dinks. they’re all set and listed in the etsy shop!  i almost cannot stand how cute they are!!
