well....the bags are packed....the multitude of supplies are too...and The Lenster and I will be off by car bright and early tomorrow morning for our 5+ hour drive to Topsfield, Mass. I'll be teaching this weekend for
I'll bring the computer and do my level best to blog about it. I am looking forward to this so much !!!
also...my family (on my mothers side) comes from Boston, so on Sunday we'll see cousins. Very happy !
but...in the meantime...here's an easy tutorial for those who need that last little bit of encouragement to get out their melting pots and UTEE...
and you know who you are....
1. Pick a stamp, unmounted is easier but it's okay if it's mounted.
2. Melt UTEE in pot. Work on non stick craft sheet.
3. Place Ranger Memory Frame on rubber (don't use a polymer stamp). If it makes you feel better ink the stamp with some clear embossing ink but it's really not necessary.
let it all harden. Doesn't matter how long its on the rubber. Even after it hardens it will remain warm.
5. Then, peel frame and all off the rubber.
7,. Squeeze out a bit of my Stickles Glitz Glitter Glue on the surface and rub it in with your finger************

and let me conclude with.......
I got so many hilarious emails and posts about yesterdays blog, but surely the funniest came from Wendy in the UK which I just had to re-post because I am still wetting my pants while dribbling from my swollen upper lip...." OMG how I laughed, you see I went to the Dentist too today, for a check up and clean. What I want to know is how the hell cleaning can be so painful and cause so much blood loss?? He says to me, all seems fine but a few areas are a little loose - I am not friggin surprised, you just shoved the little sharp tooly thing around like you were diggin for diamonds. I am sure he is just making sure there is work for next time around.......geesh was I glad to get out of there. I treated myself to a new shirt and matching scarf for being such a good patient and not screaming while crushing his manly bits which were at hand height as I lay back in his chair wearing a pair of 1960's style sunglasses and a plastic bib!!! Hope your tomorrow is more fun xx"
