Happy 104 WOYWW


Though I've only been participating for a few months, it is the 104th WOYWW. Our fearless leader, Ms. Julia Dunnit of Stamping Ground, gave us lots of advance notice so we could, if we wished, participate in a Pay It Forward (or PIF).  That's mine ready to go (when I get a name and address) in the back. And I got my Tim Holtz goodies today. I've been pining for those ink pads, kraft glassine anything and the ring binders. The Glow in the Dark is my new obession, 3 projects in 3 days :D.
I also wanted to include somethings on the blog that every one could access if they want to do so.
Here is a jpeg I made from the instruction card included in my newest to me typewriter. You can save it to your computer and print it on cardstock for all sorts of fun things :D.

I'm also including some links to lovely free things.
http://www.interweave.com/Communities/ Interweave has a variety of communities where you can sign up for daily emails with tips and some free ebooks. Quilting Arts, Cloth Paper Scissors, Spinning, Weaving, Crochet, Artist, Knitting, Beading, Jewelry Making, and Sewing.

http://clothpaperscissors.com/media/p/5291/showcontent.aspx This link goes to a free ebook (once you've signed up for the Cloth Paper Scissors community) about 5 Art Journaling Techniques including ZenTangle. You do have to sign up, but it is free.

Here's hoping your Wednesday is wonderful :D.

Sarpreet said...

lots of lovely goodies -had no idea you could buy the ring binders without the binder, happy WOYWW 104

Doone said...

ohh yeah - my typewriter buddy - I have to scan in some of the instructions from my booklet from my 1970's Electric typewriter manual, I laughed and laughed and then thought - Shoot I remember thinking these were cutting edge machines!

I also found out that my correction rate is abominable i have got so lazy with the touch typing now corrections are automated...
I do love low tech though...it's so nice to celebrate imperfections that show character (or the wrong character if you get my typo...)

You simply cannot have too many distress ink pads - love your goodies and many thanks for the jpg of the keyboard chart - I've worked on keyboards since the dark ages so this will be great to use on one of my heritage layouts one day. Elizabeth x #81
