I'm back...

Yes I'm back. At least back at the blogging. I haven't been away any where just a little under the weather, so kinda unmotivated to do the blogging thing. But I think I'm over the worst of the cold I had and maybe I can think a little better to do some writing here. Have I ever mentioned that I actually hate to write! So why have a blog at all you say? Well I guess the joy of sharing my creations with others out weighs the hatred of writing. I did read a blog(sorry I've forgotten where it was) about writing and the loathing there of, recently and I think it's help put a little perspective to it for me. His main message was to write how you talk. This seems too easy to me but I thought I'd give a try. So far it seems to be helping somewhat.

Oh well, on to the fun stuff. I've been doing a little playing around with inks and stamps. I made some bookmarks to give away at the Fibrefest and they seemed quite taken with them. So I've been playing with some other options. I try to use scraps of paper so the ones at the top are a smaller version that I'll probably give away at the next show I do. The ones at the bottom are a little bigger and I've laminated them. I used my Xyron machine for this. It worked pretty good although a few didn't work out too well. I wasn't paying attention when I took the picture and you can see the one on the top got a crinkle in the laminate. I'm hoping with a little experience with the machine they'll all work out perfect.

Gotta go now. I'm off to Tai Chi this afternoon. Have a great one.
