Think simple, think A Muse!

I spent a bit of time last week with some of my new goodies from my trip to the Northwest! I was trying to remember all the goodness of A Muse - simple, elegant, easy! I also wanted to play with my new Copics - what the heck was I thinking spending that kind of moolah on markers that I REALLY don't know how to use? I guess I was using the wrong ink ... I will try them again when my frustration wears off! So, here's a few pics, and a shot of the goodies that I picked up on my trip! It really is amazing when I go shopping somewhere outside the KC area ... makes me realize just how limited our shopping options are here! I did see somewhere that there is a stamping store in Lee's Summit - The Stamp Patch - I had heard of it a few years ago, but not lately so I just assumed it had closed! Anyone know anything about it?

Stamps by A Muse, ribbon by May Arts, notecard by A Muse - oh look, another product that I am not very good with - slightly bumpy pond for my baby penguin courtesy of my Glue Pad.
This card I was actually 100% pleased with! Love Florence, love my new blue (can't ever remember what size that is!) scallop circle, love the soft sky with the ruby red - this one just made me happy! Unfortunately, it left the house the same day I made it - off to the hospital with my mom for our friend! I may have to make another one just for me!

Here are my goodies! I think I showed a lot of restraint ... okay, a little bit of restraint! That new Basic Gray pad - Mellow - is just gorgeous!!

Thanks for sticking with me, blogland friends! I am going to try to post more often! Things are starting to settle down! I have just started homeschooling my 10 year old, so we are in a big adjustment phase around here! Things are going well ... there has only been a few minutes when all three kids were crying!!

Hey girl,
don't know anything about the Stamp Patch but would love to go with you if it's open. I see you got some of those copic markers...lucky girl!!! Thanks again for picking up those stamps for me...not sure when I'll get a chance to stamp again, this computer stuff is taking all my time!

Hi, Tisha! I love the card with Florence! Just awesome! I agree with the others--don't give up with the Copics--it hasn't taken me too much practice to get the hang of 'em, but, there was a little bit of a learning curve! You don't know me from Adam, Tisha, but if you wouldn't mind emailing me (I have an email button on my blog, so I'd rather not post it publicly here), I have a question for ya'! Thank you for your time, and for sharing all your great creations!
