Judith Tree ~ Back to School

 I love Judith stamps. We carry them exclusive to Eau Claire at Picture This. And we are shipping stamp orders out all the time. I just shipped a box full of nothing but Judith stamps to a gal in Madison this week.  The coloring is done using Copic markers.

Copic Judith Bear

Another technique workshop was a Copic one and the gals got some hands on coloring this cute bear by Judith stamps. They learned how to color the balloon stamp with markers and the magical way to make it transfer to your paper. You can not 'huff' like you do with regular markers. And then they were awed by the neat way the blending solution and material gave texture to their works of art bears.

Poppies & Alcohol inks

We did several mini technique workshops this past Saturday at the store and this was a card the gals got to make when they took the alcohol ink workshop. It is a easy to work with product and everyone in class enjoyed learning about the various surfaces to use them on. Your Copic reinkers work the same as just can't use the Ranger Blending solution with'd have to use the Copic blending solution.  The poppy die is a Memory Box die. The sympathy stamp is Heartfelt Creations and all available at Picture This. (we ship out orders all the time!!)  =)

Roses for Loved Ones

My father-in-law passed away this week so half my family is in NM and half stayed back.  With 2 makes it hard to get away on short notice. When you lose someone you reflect on others you are missing as well. I've had these photos taken for near 2 years now so this week just nudged me to finally get them done.

Adoption day for Clyde

It was bittersweet the day he went to his forever it has been with each one since. They are suppose to be able to pick the cats up at PT once they have done all their paperwork and paid ECCHA the adoption fees. But someone messed up and we had to run Clyde to the shelter. Lisa took him and she said he immediately got all snarly when she got tot the shelter. He was a big sweety here. So this just proves what I tell everyone get to see more of their true personalities here. I wouldn't be happy to be at the shelter either with lots of other cats and dogs. So it really does give these cats a better chance being visable at the store.
As we wrapped up 2013 we finished with helping the shelter adopt out 14 cats.  We currently have Taquito and Carlita awaiting their forever home.
