Not much going on today. Scissors, Candied Apple re-inker and Black and White Alcohol Inks to be put away. Eiffel Tower pencil sharpener out for enjoyment : D. All the inkpads are labeled, so some satisfaction in that. Tim Holtz app on the ipad, only the reinkers left to do.

Our first real storm of the season. The snowplow has already come by 4 times since 5 am. (Snowplow contract best Christmas present to myself ever!).

The aftermath of a bit of stamp cleaning. : D. With the aid of my new planner, I've already started my Christmas Crafting : D. Hopefully it's not as easy to misplace as the notebook I used in years past.

At the back, the 3 Distress Inks to complete the set: Lucky Clover, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple, because as you can see I'm a bit of an ink pad addict (and there are others stashed out of view).

I started the day by braving 6F and heading to the pool for Hydro Running at 6:30. Now I'm on my way back for "walk to run" ... which is an intereting choice lol, but it's a balmy 25, so shorts weather : D.

City Station Ornament

City Station ornament, made with a small circle (patterned paper on cardstock). After the gas station is assembled and put on the circle, I put Tombow Mono around the edge of the circle, let it dry a bit and then put it in one half of the ornament then added the other piece. The Papertrey Ink domes the clearest plastic ornaments I've found.

A close up of the station (stamped in my favorite Pure Poppy). The truck is stamped with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink.

Handy Dandy Notepads

Two of the notebooks I made this past Christmas, using some cardstock, pre-made notepads from Papertrey Ink, the My Kind of Guy stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.

The covers are made out of Stamper's Select White cardstock 5.5 x 8.5 with a 2/8" spine scored in the middle. The pencil holder is made by using the Write Stuff pencil die on Dark Chocolate cardstock.
