New found love

I can't believe what I just did.....I had my post all finished with pics and everything was trying to add a link and lost it all because I hadn't saved it so here we go again...LOL.....I'm still smilin'!
Here are cards with the new Ranger White Opaque Pen it is so nice and glides on

Here are samples of cards made with my new nestabilities....Oh am I ever in Love with these....Hello, my name is Robyn and I am a nestabilitie addict! LOL

One more new product....Gamsol available at Your Maine Stamper I am not fond of coloring and I avoid it all the time....however this product makes my coloring look really good! I love this and it comes in a kit with everything you need including instructions. Lydia has ordered the new Adirondack Inks the lights brights and earthtones they have been developed by Ranger and Anne and I got to use them at Ranger on the Road the colors are so rich and the newly designed ink pad containers are awesome as they lock together when stacked so they won't slide.
OK I must get going as DD has a wonderful dinner planned for me when I arrive so I must go pack and get out of here.....Have fun this week....Robyn

I can't believe that DH has been gone for over a week and I haven't gotten back here to finish the post. So please forgive me???? I have been working at YMS while Lydia was out and have been super busy! The UPS man loves it when I scream and yell and jump up and down when he arrives! The FedEx man and the DSL guy they aren't quite so sure what is going on they just don't understand that everyday that they show up is like Christmas for me. I am only working for a couple of hours this morning and I promise that I'll be back this afternoon with some pics of the new product at the shop.......OK so I have to fess up part of the problem with me not posting is I left my camera in the car and it had no life left.....and I kept forgetting to bring it in with me to charge it.....but right now it is charging next to my coffee cup! So

Art on a Budget!

Not sure if you can see these really well but they are my Art on a budget....I LOVE Stampers Anonyomos stamps Here is their link
so I decided that if I stamped them and then framed them in my bargin frames ( 1.99 each) and hung them above the bed in our room.....

now if you look really close you can see 2 post it notes on the head board...yes I write brilliant thoughts that I have during the night on post its so I won't forget until I act upon them! Now you know my secret!

I have also been making lots of samples for the much fun and they turned out so great stop by if you have the time tomorrow......I think there will be an unadvertised sale on 12x12's Whooo Hoooo......

Have a great weekend everyone.

The Real Thing!

OK so I apologize for taking so long to get this picture grand dog and his parents home for the weekend and getting the boss brought up to speed from being away for a week. Busy here it is .....Dreamkuts!

My product review....this is the best dag um paper cutter ever.....all you do is put your card stock in the back and turn the handle....and cuts so fast and so easy....what can I say....I LOVE IT!

On the Creating side of life.....I'm not sure what on earth sparked this creative idea that I had but I do love it.......I purchased some very inexpensive black frames with shadow box type effect and decided that If I stamped in black on white with some of my favorite stamps I would have really cool art for less than $20 and it would look Smashing, Cool, Chic, sophisticated.....very Loft looking....OK so I am home alone and on my second cup of coffee!!!! Leave me a message and let me know what you think! I'll post another picture when I get them all done and hung on the wall.

Here is to a most excellent day ......Robyn

Re Do Bag & Great Surprise!

Good Day everyone!

Here is a picture of the black bag that I redid.....stamped in a Tim Holtz Flourish and then added beads and antique buttons from Aunt Willetta's collection! It was great fun and I learned I wouldn't be able to sit for a long time and sew on beads!
While working yesterday the UPS Man brought in 2 great big here is a picture of what came in one of the boxes.....yes it was Stampers Anoymous! Whooo Hooo.....we had been told that we wouldn't be getting this until later in April so we are all excited.....come and visit us on Saturday at number on the right of my blog. We will be doing demos and giving you a chance to see what we ordered at the show this past weekend. I'll give you a sneak peak tomorrow of what was in the other box and then I'll do the reveal after I reveal it Saturday at the shop....all I can say is that it is a very fun toy....tool....!
Well off I go to do some handy woman work.....the wind was blowing so strongly yesterday that the sign fell down at the shop so I need to go to the hardware store and get some hardware to re-hang it. Have a great day....Robyn

Thanks Fred!

Good Evening-

Anne and I had so much fun this weekend at the Susan Gilman Trade Show and at Ranger on the Road on Monday!
First I have to thank Fred from for taking such good care of me in the dessert department....those of you that know me know that I am a lover of really good food with dessert's on the top of the list. Here is a picture of what Fred made happen

Oh, my it was so cool and smooth it melted in your mouth with the all of your chcolate sensors at their peak of happiness! Yummy! I was one happy camper! Thanks again Fred! Sunday night we had a very fun time with those fun gals from The Paper Cut and Impression Obsession so they have changed my thoughts on clear stamps and I'll get into my new thoughts in a later post.

Monday at Ranger on the Road we had a blast with Tim Holtz in the morning and with Robin Beam in the afternoon. Anne and Learned 18 new techniques to share with you all over the next few months. We even decided that it was important to try the paint out on our clothes! I'll let you know how it survives the laundry. Well all I am still kinda tired so I'll leave you with this last picture of Anna and I.....can you tell we are having fun?
