it's Monday...

We had a BLAST @ Prairie Art Stamps in Springfield, Illinois on Saturday.
Lots of inking...lots of grunging...lots of STAMPING...
LOTS of new art friends.

THANKS Terri for the invite & to everyone who came & played.

I LOVED the store...
I LOVED the customers...
I SHALL return!

I SHOPPED there too...YIPPEE!

I was inspired by "something" that's NOT grunge or rubber...
I KNOW...
SHOCKING!
More on that later...
but I will tell you that Rick said...what the heck is this for???

I have plans to adapt "it" to my stamps...
Hopefully the picture in my mind can be done...
I just need a little playtime...

Susan was kind enough to send a photo of her bird...
from the Build A Better Bird workshop...
once again...no camera for me...same old song...

She thought outside the stamp (box) and made the funky flower into grass...
it looks so COOL!

GREAT job Susan...thanks for sharing...




Ok...I SHOPPED...you should too!

I've had lots of emails asking about where to find the NEW Rock Candy & Metallic Distress Stickles...OMG...it's sooooooo cool...

they're in stock HERE...

and the NEW Rock Candy Crackle Paint is in stock too...

and FINALLY...we waited FOREVER...
and ever..for...
the 12 remaining colors of the Distress Stickles!!

YIPPEE!

Happy shopping to you!

Next...a studio 490 sighting...

These tags were created by Hels Sheridan...
Pop over to her blog to see more of her awesome art...

I'm totally impressed...
I bet you are too!




and another BEAUTY by Hel's!


Hels...LOVE your art!

Hmmmm...What else do I have to say???

I had no clue that we would ship so many of my books to so many far away places. The internet sure makes it a small world...
So far we've sent them all over the US, Canada, LOTS to the UK, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and today's mailing goes all the way to Japan.

THANKS Minori! Rick will mail yours this morning...

and......

I'm excited about this weekend...
the next stop on the art adventure is...
For Keeps Sake in St. Louis...this Saturday.

Ted will be there with a billion of tim's stamps...
other Stampers Anonymous stamps...
and all my studio 490 stamps...

I'll do a book signing @ noon...
and then a grungy workshop after that.
Hope to see you there...
(a BILLION stamps!...I'm just saying...)

Now about that yummy film strip ribbon...
looks like I'm not the only one...
LOTS of you like it too...

DRUMROLL.........

The first number chosen is...

Kathy said...

Love that bird! Wendy, where do the wooden birds come from?

Linda said...

Congratulations Claire and mamakat! Have fun with the film strip ribbon!

Wendy, if you need help getting ready for the cruise, I am SURE I could convince my bosses to let me take a couple of days off to help and I promise I wouldn't say a thing to anyone. . .really I wouldn't - my lips would be sealed! Only 20 days to go! Can't wait!

Congrats to the film strip ribbon winners:) I am lucky though...going to see you this weekend in St. Louis for your class!! I can't wait to see all of those stamps too!...the hard part will be not to buy them all;)(That might make the hubby a little upset...lol)

lotsa scrap said...

Congrats to the winners. I loved using the filmstrip ribbon on my project this past Saturday at Wendy's workshop. I can't wait to get some more. I have lots of plans for it. Wendy, you were a fantastic teacher--as always. I've read the first part of your book. Now I'm onto the details of the inspiration projects.
