I made a quick video of opening my Papertrey Ink order that I just got yesterday. Something went a little wonky with the shipping notice system, so it totally surprised me when it arrived. Oh, the joy! Here's the video. (Sorry- I did it on my macbook, so the image is reversed. I was too lazy to get out my tripod!) Watch it over at youtube here.
One of my Two Peas orders also came in the past couple days, and in my possession are two of these little beauties in Apple Jack and Atmosphere. I can't stop spraying things!
When Eyedea passed away last week, my boyfriend was really upset; Eyedea was his favorite rapper. Never having listened to him before, I thought I would just listen to see why Matt thought he was so amazing. Let me tell you... I'm in love. He's a freaking genius. I've been known to like rappers every so often (Eminem is one of my favorite artists in general), so this isn't completely out of left field. If you have the slightest interest in rap, I really encourage you to listen to this album (E & A by Eyedea & Abilities) in particular. His lyrics aren't degrading towards women at all, and he keeps the swearing to a minimum in favor of deep lyrics about the battles of everyday life and living with others in the world.
A New Studio Calico Layout
I said I was going to share some layouts I made last week today, but I guess I lied. Instead, I want to share this one I made last night for the Sunday Sketch challenge on the SC blog. I was a little excited to use my Mister Hueys :) Check it out:
I love cascading embellishments. And misting. I heart this macro shot, too. :)
No layout of mine would be complete without stitching. Period. Hehe.
