Spiced Cider...

It's been very difficult for me to pick a favorite of the new Shimmerz Blingz paints but now I know it is definitely the Spiced Cider. I used it here to "spice" up some Pink Paislee paper and it is gorgeous. It is dreary out today so I wasn't able to capture just how shimmery it is with the camera but it is so pretty!

Stacey (the fabulous owner of Shimmerz) and I are working on putting together a class so you can make some beautiful Shimmery things and take some home to play with. Check back, I will have more info on that soon!!

Oh, and by the way, this is a calendar page, (November) of a gift I am making for a my friend Denise who has been begging me for a sneak peek! I know she will just freak!



Angie from Scrap Scene featured one of my Christmas cards today (thanks Angie!). Here are a couple more to share with you!



One more thing... I have decided to open up an Etsy shop! I read an article about the man who started it in Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion and I was really inspired. I will be donating 10% of all sales to Autism Speaks. I hope to get all my items loaded this week so check back soon!

Here's a quote for you today:

One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody, everything, every night before you go to bed.

-Bernard M. Baruch

Have a lovely Sunday!

I am thrilled that you opened up a etsy shop! Too fun. But now I have to decide between a pillow or canvas frame for my inlaws...I have the perfect picture! I will be in touch.

Hi Lori! I am loving your projects you just posted. That calendar is gorgeous. Love how you added a few embellishments to the actual calendar page as well as the banner page. I bet your friend is going to be SO thrilled.
Love your cards, too. The shapes on both are so eye-catching. Love all those stitched circles.
You go, girl!

Hey Lori!
I have to say, your last card with the "joy" and poinsettias made me gasp! Too pretty for words! Loved the photo booth shots from a while back. I was cracking up! I agree with you, what a FUN job to have!

The Etsy Shop is such a grand idea. I took a quick look and I'm thinking I might need a pillow or two (or three or four...) as Christmas gifts. Are you up for the challenge, my friend? :) I'll have to find the right pics. Will get back to you.
