What's Up

Hi everyone,
 I hope you've all been well. I've been prepping for a couple of things and been traveling. We helped my sister-in-law celebrate her 80th birthday. I got some really wonderful happy mail from some friends and I thought I ought to share it with you.
The tag on the left is from Lynne for a tag swap we both participate in over at Sheri's blog. She used Dylusions and I LOVE the bright colors. The card on the right is from my good friend Karen. Even though we live states apart, we remain crafting buddies. 
One of the projects I've been working on is a stamping tool. I had seen many people using the Misti tool but just couldn't justify spending the money. This got me to thinking I could make my own. I did a visit to the hardware store and purchased some of the components to assemble my version. I had a quilters measure I used for the top. My hardware store cut a piece of plexi I used for the base. I cut up a wood yardstick for the edge and use fun foam when I stamp clear stamps. The hinges are attached with two part epoxy. What do you think? not bad for $15,00. I may make a smaller one for travel. I had the hardware cut some plexi 6X6 out of scraps. These are $1.60. I need to check my coffee can hardware for some more hinges. Anyone else throw all the add stuff in a coffee can like I do?
As some of you know I have some classes coming up soon. 

I have been playing with jewelry components since kitting for classes. 

I have also been working on bible journaling. You know me. I must have multiple projects going on or I think things are amiss.

Well tonight is card and scrap night at the Create Exchange so I better pack up something to play with tonight. ttfn
