“The imagination needs moodling ~ long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering.”
Last night I was tucked into bed with a nice cup of tea and the new Stampin’ Success magazine, all ready to soak up some new ideas and have some idle time to dream about Christmas projects. Since I live in Maine, a “Hello from Maine, Professor Penny!” subtitle caught my eye at the end of the magazine. I was wondering if I would know the demonstrator, so imagine my surprise when I kept reading and saw that the little blurb was from Dawn MacKay. Ha ha! I vaguely remember writing that response to a question that Professor Penny had put out to demonstrators. I’m still chuckling about it this morning! : )
This card was made by my friend and very first downline, “Miss Pat.” When she and I went to Stampin’ Up’s 25th Anniversary Convention, this little ghost was a project we were shown on the big screen. (I think at convention the project was debuting some new Designer Series Paper…I can’t remember!) Over a year of “happy idling, dawdling and puttering” on Pat’s part lent the inspiration for her to add a few embellishments and create this card for me. Soooo cute, Pat!
A stamping friend asked me about the difference between Stampin’ Up’s Black Ink Pad and the Staz-On Black Ink Pad. The Staz-On is on the left.
This is totally off-topic, but I spent an hour last night watching the first of an 11 day documentary about cancer. I’ve spent the last 6 1/2 years reading books, articles, blogs, etc. on the subject of cancer (after my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer) and the video that I watched last night summarized a lot of information that I have come across. It is excellent. I have a free blog so I cannot post the video here, but I will post it on our Stamping Peace Facebook page in case you would like to watch it or share it with someone. Have a great day my friends! Pax, Dawn
