Yesterday I had a wild hair to start making Christmas cards. Not just any Christmas cards, but ones like I made, gosh, I guess it’s been something like eight years ago! I used mostly rubber stamps + Le Plume markers to make them and they turned out real cute, but then I eventually got bored with rubber-stamping and got rid of them in one of my crafting-supplies purges. And I haven’t missed those supplies . . . until yesterday ;-).
So I went to Hobby Lobby looking for very specific rubber stamps which they, of course, no longer had. Hunh. Imagine that. Stamps I bought nine or ten years ago aren’t still in stock. What the heck’s up with that?!?!
None of the other rubber stamps caught my eye so I ended up browsing the rest of that aisle and came across the quilling supplies. Quilling caught my attention several years ago but I never got around to trying it because I was more interested in embroidering. But now that my interest in embroidering has cooled, it seems a good time to try quilling!
Then I went over to Michael’s and bought a book I’d spied over there earlier in the day, “Drawing Lab“. Drawing will never be a way for me to earn a living and I’m more than aware of that, hehe!, but I like having fun with it, and this book has some ideas that I think I’ll enjoy trying.
Oh, and I decided last night that all the crafting supplies I’d stashed in my car’s trunk (aka “temporary holding”) to eventually be taken to Goodwill will be brought back inside and relocated back to the bookshelves in my office . . . so that, you know, in eight years when I want some little this or that, I won’t have to hope I can still find it at Hobby Lobby ;-).
