OH HOW I LOVE...

getting emails and comments.

Mainly because that proves that someone is reading this here ol' blog.

But emails and comments that ask questions - well that just makes me fell all loved and appreciated. Because I can tell all the kiddos in my house that my answers and opinions matter to someone!

Okay - so here are the questions I've received today...

From Annie - she wanted to know what I used to glue down the "bling" on last night's page.

Well Annie - I don't really have an answer for you. Because that particular sheet of bling was self-adhesive. It was Daisy Ds goodies from last summer. And unfortunately, my stash is running low. How sad. BUT - when I do find myself in need of gluing something like a rhinestone, or a button, or a trinket of 3-dimensional nature - I reach for my trusty Diamond Glaze. A.K.A. Crystal Lacquer or Glossy Effects. Those are my go-to-adhesive in these situations.

Thanks Annie!

Katie is dying to know about the "something" I was alluding to earlier this week. The secret.

Hmmmm - I'm sorry to disappoint you Katie - but it was the information about the "Valley Forge Class Seat Giveaway" I was hinting at. And bummer, it doesn't effect you because you don't live anywhere near Valley Forge. However, I'm pretty sure you've got a convention coming to your neck of the woods fairly soon. And you just never know what's going to happen then!

Thanks Katie!

Now, Mary F. is trying her darnedest to find out what I bought at Staples that is coming in oh-so-handy right now. Well Mary, I got this tip from Crafty Deb last week, and acted upon it immediately. Here is what I'm referring to...


it's a simple 13" long pencil case. And since every store I walk into lately is full of back-to-school supplies, you shouldn't have a problem finding one in your town. However, I found mine at Staples, for $1.79. In it fits all of my 12" borders, as well as my 12" sticky mat, sticky cutting mat and my regular 12" cutting mat. And since I'm heading out to play with some girlfriends tonight - I tossed in my glue pen and my handy-dandy-Scotch-tape. Because I almost always use those two supplies when I'm dealing with my borders! (I also have the awesome "bracket die cuts" that Ms. Laura brought home from the LOVE Machine demo. Don't you just love 'em?? I'm hoping to get 'em used tonight!)

Go grab one Mary...you'll love it!

So there you have it - I think everyone elses questions fell somewhere along the lines of one of these questions.

If I didn't get your question answered - just shoot me another email, or leave a comment. And remember - the email address in the side-bar is good for reaching me. I've just taken over opening Essie's mailbox. Because it looks like she's still going to be "occupied" until the first of September.

PEACE!

I have also been to staples and found the pencil case in a pretty blue color. Too bad they didn't have it in purple, I would have had more than one. And it was on sale. Just love when things are on sale.

What a great idea for storing the 12" dies. I could kick myself because I just gave one of those pencil boxes to Goodwill a couple of months ago...guess I'll have to pick up another one...

That pencil case idea is FANTASTIC!! Think I have one that I can free up somewhere....


Any idea on the measurements for the new QK binder?? Gotta make sure it'll fit the space I have.

Hello girls, glad you like the storage for the 12 inch borders! I even put my platform itself in there when traveling so it does not get banged up. You will need something like a heavier ribbon under it coming out each short side so you can begin to lift it up because it just fits in there.

YAHOO!!!! I just received my Chemistry die. Any storage ideas for the 4x8 dies (until we can get our hands on the new storage binder of course LOL)

Helen said...

I was thinking that the 4x8s might fit in the pencil case too. Has anybody tried it yet?
