Lots of Sadness this month.

I'm thinking I should really do a class just for sympathy cards. Cards for people who loose a family member or a dear pet. This month has been filled with great sadness and family scares.

Today is a memorial for a great lady who we will miss very much. Her infectious laugh, a kind hearted person who will always be remembered. One of her best qualities was that she told things like they were- no bull shit just flat out blunt about anything. You always knew where you stood with her.
She handmade the most delicious cabbage rolls that were her speciality.She was a fighter battling Cancer more than once. And she fought to the end. Today we gather together as a family to remember the best times and to honour her life we all shared with her.

And only two weeks earlier we lots a great fur friend. My brother's dog Zoe had to be put down suddenly. All within two days we found out terrible news and he had to make the decision. There was nothing the vets could do to help her. She was a rescue dog and has come such a long way. She loved food haha just like any other got but Zoe was a great scavenger she hunted moles and mice at the family acreage. She often went on hiking trips and camping trips. She often played with her friend Bear sneaking out for walks and runs through the fields. She recently was the big sister to a little put named Leo who joined her family and loved showing him the ropes. We are going to miss her very much and we are so glad she was a part of our family.

New product available...

Have you seen those lovely enamel dots on every card or scrap booking project out there lately? And you want to see where you can buy them. Some are so expensive for what you're really getting. So something new that I've been making by hand is small Enamel dots. I have decided to share them with everyone and created Dots by Stacy.

Here's some pictures showing what they look like plus the colours I have available at this time.

Size of small dots.

And here's a few close up's so you can read the labels:
First row: Candy Cane, Corals, Sparkle
Second row: Pinks/Purples, Rainbow, Halloween
Third Row: Darks, Glow in the dark, Mixed

First row: Sparkle (again), Mermaid Pearls, Browns
Second row: Halloween (again), Romance, Bright's, Greens
Third Row: Mixed (again), Black pins, Grey Glitter and Christmas mix

I can also put together mixed bags of which ever colours you would prefer. 

Each bag contains 5.9 grams (approx. 100 pieces)
Solid Colours bags are $3.00
and Stripe or stripe combo bags are $4.00 
which also contain 5.9 grams (approx. 100 pieces)
(shipping not included)

I was working on larger dots however the smell of  burning plastic is really hard to get out of the house. I will be putting together bags of the larger dots in a few days of what I have. But there wont be an abundance of any of them or a huge variety of colours. 

If you are interested in purchasing any please let me know. 

Also I'm hoping to do a few updates to pages soon. The Technique page will have some info and cool projects working with Geletos.
The Thank you card page needs a major updating. And hopefully there will be more to follow. 
Keep crafting.

What's new and happening now...

Lots actually. I always seem to forget or just never have the time to post ideas on the blog. Made a promises last year which defiantly didn't happen and now I'm back.

In other news, I've recently done a few on-line classes of Watercolour Mediums, Stretch your stamps and Stretch your dies- thanks to a very good friend of mine. And have enjoyed them all.

There will be more pictures to follow up with those soon.

This weekend is the Our Best to You craft sale and I'm super excited this year because I've won tickets on Facebook. Only thing is free tickets doesn't cover the parking fee which I think is just dumb. But Mom and I go every year and have had some success. We seem to go back for the same vendors every year.
Things we've noticed going on different days is Friday- not all vendors are set up yet. I think maybe Saturday is the busiest day that not all vendors get tables for all weekend. But I could be wrong on that.
And going on a Sunday again not all Vendors are present, some have already packed up and left.

So Saturday being the busiest day, and it is a nut house. We go in and face the crowds anyway's.
