Hello Everyone. Once again, it has been a while since I posted anything. Ever since the holiday season started it has been crazy busy here. I am sure many of you can relate to what I'm talking about; Christmas cards, shopping for gifts, making gifts, holiday decorating, classroom parties, holiday baking, etc. I realize now that one of my New Year's resolutions definitely needs to be a resolution to organize my time better.
For those of you who are checking in for new tutorials, I do plan to continue my video tutorial series on embossing soon. However, I will not have anything posted here until after New Year's. You may have noticed, from viewing my videos, that my kitchen/dining room doubles as my recording studio and with everyone home for holiday break it's pretty much impossible to "book" studio time. So please check back after the new year for some new ideas for embossing.
I do have one project that I am excited to share. First the back story: I have been wanting to try metal embossing for awhile. Well, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Ten Seconds Studio had an 50% off sale so I decided to treat myself to an early Christmas present and order some tools and supplies. If you aren't familiar with Ten Seconds Studio here is a link. (Check out their Taco-Tuesday videos. They are a hoot.) I got the package a couple of weeks ago but just haven't had the time to play with my new "toys." But last night while I was wrapping some gifts I watched their latest video tutorial. In the video Cheryl added embossing to create an awesome mailbox. If it hadn't been 10:00 pm at night I probably would have thrown the kiddies in the car and headed down to Lowe's to pick up a mailbox to make one myself. But then I remembered I had picked up some mini mailboxes from the Dollar Spot at Target when I was out shopping earlier in the day. So here are before and after photos.
Aren't these the coolest? And so quick and easy. My head is now spinning with so many different ideas. I have definitely drank the Kool-Aid. Well, that's it for now. I gotta get back to my to-do list.
Happy Holidays to all and blessings for the New Year.
