Crafty Weekend


It was a super crafty Saturday morning.  It has been great hanging out with family lately, but Sat morning it was nice to just do what I wanted to do.


On Friday I got my Pan Pastel set from Donna Downey here.  And Saturday morning over coffee I watched her pan pastel 101 video available here.  And then I went up to the studio…and played with them.  Woot!


Love the butterflies on this stencil.


And totally love the effect with the pan pastels.  I can’t wait for 102 to come out!


I also bought a Smash book for myself and for Elizabeth on Friday when we were in Downer’s Grove.  I Red heart Archivers.  And bless their hearts-the smash books were on a table right inside the door. 


So I have been filling it with inspiration Open-mouthed smile  Elizabeth has been filling hers too. We are in love.


I had to pick up some add-ons while I was there too. 


I LOVE the embossing on the book…


And the polka dot tape.


And the red and white paperclip flags. 


And smashing pics in. 


I have also been playing with my watercolors.  I am also loving Alisa Burke’s Watercolor Bliss class-available here.  I don’t think I have ever used the tube watercolors-but I am getting ready to play with them right now. 

Hope everyone had a crafty weekend.  I wish there was more weekend left.  There are still some things that I would like to do Open-mouthed smile

Happy Monday!
