When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Spectrum Noir

About two months ago somewhere in Ohio, I got the chance to buy all 12 of the Spectrum Noir 6-pen sets.  They were on sale at Pat Catan's, which only operates in 2 States - Ohio and Pennsylvania.  I was amazed with all the new stuff they have and the prices were really competitive as most online craft stores.

The other night, I used my new markers and colored the only stamped image that somehow got mixed-up with the supplies I mailed.  I was planning to make a card for several challenges but unfortunately, I don't have anything I can use for cardbase, let alone, to stamp an image... Ha! I got everything here except that LOL.  Anyways, here's showing you the colored image...

Image used is Penny Black.  So far I like the markers although you need to be very careful because the ink really runs or bleeds so much.  But blending is easy peasy. How I wish I could make a card out of this image...
On the side note, I got an email from Hallmark Scrapbook today and they're running a special on Spectrum Noir.  I was planning to buy all of the 4 - 24sets (Dark, Lights, Brights and Pastels/Total of 96markers) for $119 BUT... I dont think I will pay $18 for shipping.  Well, I sent a message to the owner asking if its possible to fit them all in one flat rate priority box so I can save a few bucks on the shipping...  if not, then I guess I'll just have to pass up the deal.

Have a happy election day!

Bling, bling in an unexpected places...

Got these 8 X 4 sheets of bling in an unexpected store and paid a little over a dollar on each pack.  It's like $3-$4 per small pack in the US, so I think I score big time...  I can say that again now that I'm back to being in a craft deprived place LOL

I honestly don't know why I only took a pack of purple bling... Duh!

Beggars can't be choosers...

Still not much to post... Still couldn't do any crafting since HHG are still enroute but I have a few supplies that I mailed.

Here's a peek of my crafting/classroom area in our new home.  I was issued a couple bookcases, desks and some cabinets to put in this room.  Although furniture in this room doesn't match, I'm happy with it and considered myself lucky to even have a space to play with my craft toys. 

 I mailed my markers that the shippers wont pack and ship.  The box for it was beaten up pretty badly during the mailing and as a result a bunch of my CTMH and LePlume markers lost their caps and bled.  Aside from markers, my CTMH reinkers got busted too and I'm hopeful that it didn't ruin my stickles. 
 I put together two desks so hopefully I have enough working space.
 I am wandering if I can ever fill up these two big bookcases... One bottom shelf is already filled with my kid's crafting supplies.
 A small breakfast table will be my kids desk during studytime...
 My baby Jackie playing in his Daddy's computer. Also put up a small working area for my hubby.
I'm sure this room is will be one of the busy area in our new home... there's even enough space in the middle to dance or goof around...

That's it for now...  Take care y'all.
