I Love the Unexpected…

Okay sometimes they throw me for a loop
I had a relapse from my illness, got a house with a catch, and a job offer I couldn’t refuse
The catch on the house was in order to move in we had to repaint the entire house, rip out the carpet, and repair all the windows
The house is now ready for carpet which is coming monday the 7th
we can finish moving in after that so then I can start creating and blogging again!
The good news is I will have a lot more space, I will have 24 hour access to my computer, and I now have this handy dandy tablet to post with as well so…
I hope to be back creating and blogging by say the 14th of July
I can’t wait, I have so much to show you!
Thank you for hanging with me, I really appreciate it!!!

Talk to you soon and please leave me a comment about what you want to see most!

I Had a Brilliant Idea

Okay maybe not brilliant, but I was pretty proud of myself!

A few weeks ago we had a small craft fair that turned out to be the best one ever

I sold some stuff and bought way more, lol

That is the nature of these craft fairs that my group does

Anyway, Kristy Eskew was sitting next to me and she sells Scentsy

You can see her Beautiful and really good smelling stuff on her Scentsy website

She has this wax warmer that has magnetic frames you can put photos in

She also has decorative frames that will fit into the space on the front of the warmer

Here is a picture of one of the decorative frames you can get

Scentsy Butterfly frame

Now for my Brilliant Idea

The other frame is a picture frame and since they are magnetic I can change them out whenever I want

So, my brilliant idea was to create a stamped image on vellum to put in the picture frame

I can make new ones and change them whenever the mood strikes me

Here is my first picture:

Close up of scentsy picture

 I tried a lot of different styles and techniques like shimmer and glitter but in the end because of the amount of light behind it they all were washed out

What looked the best was Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin Write Markers

Here is a couple of pictures of the whole Scentsy warmer and with the light on:

Do you have an idea that you thought was brilliant?

Leave me a comment and tell me about it, I might be able to try it and blog about it
