Alleystamp Stores

I am a bad bad store owner.  Do you know that I have an Etsy store and also an active store website? I am thrilled that I found a source for the non stick craft sheet that we all own. I bought a large quantity so that you can buy (at a bargain) by the foot. If you want 5 feet to cover your whole desk, I can do that. If you only want one foot, I can do that. It is 5 mil thick and 36" wide. The great thing is that it is rated to 550 degree fahrenheit. You can use it to cover your cookie sheets. You can easily clean anything off it by just gently scrapping with a credit card. Glue, paints, whatever just pop off. Use it over and over.

Also, check out both places for all the latest in crafting needs! Let me know if there is something in particular that you want and I will definitely try to get it.

Dragonfly Pond

Hey fellow crafters. I have been so remiss in keeping up with my blog. I don't have a lot of pictures to post which I find is what people are looking for. INSPIRATION - I like so many out there get in a rut and just can't get the creative mojo going. I love Marjie Kemper's Texture Tuesday because who doesn't like art with lots of texture.

I came across one from Ingrid's Craft Corner and I was just mesmerized. Of course, I am addicted to dragonflies and butterflies and tim's new layered dies are just fabulous. I decided to try Ingrid's technique of mixing gesso with clear embossing powder. WOW that was fun. Heating that up until it bubbled and sparkled all over was a kick.

My oldest daughter's birthday was October 14th so I made this with her in mind. I just mailed it up to her so we'll find out soon her reaction. I sure hope she likes it.

Please make sure and visit Ingrid's Craft Corner to see the original piece. She was gracious enough to let me post her link.
