Last saturday I attended our local spring Stamp Camp. I was so tired once home that I fell asleep and missed the Creative Cat Crew color challenge that week. Today is the only day that I can work on March Paper Pumpkin alternatives thus possibly jeapordizing a second week of participating. So, after completing a set of alternatives I thought I would see if this week's colors were a close...

I finally rebuilt a new Copic marker collection. For now I am going to limit myself to the markers I have bought so far. I created a short list of requirements and from that list I built a set of 168 markers. 

Once I had the markers I was ready to buy a couple of replacement coloring books. I bought dragon theme books, two of them. This is the first completed project from the book...

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. 

How often does one get the chance to re-acquire something as expensive as a set of Copic markers? For most...

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. On the way to her house, I stopped at the dollar store and grabbed a couple of the 14 slot pill containers. This style is...
