Just a little FYI…

Sep 26, 2009

I will not be blogging for several weeks and thought I would give you the heads up as to why. To make a long story short… for the past few years I thought I was lactose intolerant. Anytime I drank milk my stomach would hurt so I just took myself off all dairy and didn’t have anymore issues. Well in April the Dr. and I thought I had acid reflux… took Nexium and all was better. Sunday I had some terrible stomach pains that lasted all night but went away. Tuesday evening BAM I was hit with some stomach and back pain that would not let up so I went to the ER and found out I had gallstones and a very unhappy gallbladder. Wednesday I was in a hospital room being pumped full...

Make Art…

Sep 2, 2009

So do you wish you could stamp like Wendy Vecchi as much as I do? Well it just got a lot easier for me. I had a great mail day yesterday because Wendy sent me a copy of her new book “Make Art, Studio 490 Style”. Let me tell ya… this book will never leave my workstation and I am not kidding! Behind this cover contains loads and loads of  incredible information. Reading Wendy’s book is kinda like being able to pick her brain. You know when you look at her incredible creations and think to yourself… who’s product is this, how did she do that… what did she use here…. well it is all inside. Wendy lists her favorite supplies (the basics and the extras) tips, stamp stuff, basic info and has approximately...
