Copics - Take Two | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Ok folks, The two coloring mediums I re-supplied with early in January did not satisfy my need for color. They are great to work but twelve total colors was not enough. Hub hoped that they could replace Copics, what was he thinking? The net result: time to get back into Copics.

It feels so good to be back in the Copic saddle again! I bought a few digi stamps from Power Poppy back in November but our printer would not feed thick cardstock. Then of course the unimaginable happened when we lost our home which meant that I never did get to color those beautiful stamps I'd bought.

We are staying at Hub's parents and their printer feeds my cardstock so of course the...

Then we analyzed what colors we wanted more of for next time and finally we had to fine tune our storage options.

It is almost Valentine's Day, It snuck up so fast! I gathered a bunch of new materials and borrowed some supplies so I could make this year's Valentine's Day cards. I then took over our bedroom and had everything out on the bed and our shared table. I felt like a mad scientist. Hub is very supportive, understanding my need to be creative so he took his laptop and setup in the kitchen for the...

Since I lost all of my crafting supplies in a trailer accident, it was time to make more DIY dots. This time I had a co-hort to make them with me, my mom. We bought the bright Perler Bead assortment pack at Hobby Lobby and the neutrals I bought on Amazon. I do have a link to a supplier with great pricing below. I chose Amazon so I could get them in one day. These make a great handmade looking...
