WOYWW 222

222 always reminds me of the tv show Room 222 which I watched when I was a barely teen lo those many decades ago. I've never seen it on re-runs so it might not be the classic I remember, but I digress.

It's a bit of finishing up the leftovers from Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire and embarking on some new projects. The leftovers are the shrinky dink cuts that need to be stamped and shrunk (hence the cutting board) and the die-cuts to the left which need to be stamped, and the Kool Aid will be used in scented embossing powder at some point. (edited to add the link for more info on scented embossing powder)

The Peacock Feather Distress Ink is new and followed me home after I finally remembered to carry a coupon with me, and the erasers are going to be turned into stamps. The candy boxes will be turned into notebooks thanks to a pin I stumbled across, only modified of course. The toy wheel will be turned into a spindle (for spinning wool).

The candy will be given with the notebooks, but I'm still sorting out how to wrap it. Ideas are welcome of course lol.

I've been bonding with my "grand-pig" who is tired of being photographed. His name is Arnold Palmer (named after the beverage, not the golfer who made the beverage lol). His hobby is woodworking/home alteration.
If you are wondering about WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander at crafty desks around the world.

Do you just add the koolaid straight into embossing powder and do you mix it with clear or colours :) I've heard of this somewhere but don't know exactly how to mix the 2 together it would be fun to give it a try

I'd LOVE for you to share the Kool-Aid cards some T Tuesday on my blog. I also want to learn more about this although I read about it on your blog last week.

Had to laugh at Arnold's occupation. Too, too funny, and great photo, too.

How cute is Arnold Palmer and so nice to come across a fellow stamp carver. I would love to see some of your stamps and them put to use. It definitely sounds like you have had a busy week and I hope this coming week is just as busy and fun. Danie #25
