I guess if I had to pick one it would be MacGyver. I tend to create for, rather than create because. I'm working on a style. Maybe one day! Great Prize and congratulations on all your views.

A 100K Glitzy Blog Candy!


 I was so excited to see that my little blog has past 100,000 views! I think you all really like it when I talk about Copics ;0)

 I wanted to share my excitement over this milestone with all of my followers by doing a blog candy giveaway.  In order to enter you must be a follower of my blog.  


The Blog Candy giveaway will include everything pictured above.

To enter please leave a comment answering the following question:

What kind of crafter are you?

A) NEOPHYTE-  inspired to craft by brand new goodies!  You can't wait to get your hands on the latest greatest newest released supplies.

B) CLEAN & SIMPLE CLASSIC- likes to craft with the basic tried and true supplies keeping things clean and simple and classic.

C)  MACGYVER- can create with whatever supplies you have on hand or anything you find laying around

I have come to the realization that I am a Neophyte crafter.  I feel most inspired when I get something brand spankin' new to play with.  I definitely want to become a Macgyver so that I can use up my existing stash and stay on budget for 2013.


I will randomly select a winner from the comments received on January 26th!

NOTW


Nail Of The Week

This is my New Year's manicure.  It is the limited edition color and gel polish combo from Sensationail.  It contains two polishes, Midnight Rendevous ( black polish) and Gold Glitter.  I have never worn black polish before but I thought I would try something new for the new year.  I really love this.  It is so sparkly in real life, like my nails are dusted with gold fairy dust!  I think I will be wearing more dark colors in the future.  

What new things are you going to try in 2013?

New Year's Resolution and Copic Color Combos



Happy New Year!  What are your New Year's Resolutions?  Mine are to get organized, get healthy, and to get crafty more often.  

In honor of resolution numbers 1 and 3, I wanted to share with you a storage unit I won on the Marker Pop facebook page.  The photo above is the Crafter's Companion The  Ultimate Pens and Markers Storage Each unit is $7.99 each and holds 12 markers.  Above I have used 6 units.  

I have chosen to place some go to color combos in the unit and it sits on top of my other storage that I already had.  I like these units and how organized they keep things.  

Below is a chart of Copic's new blending sets (the yellow combo I used Y19 instead of their recommended Y18).  


Below is a chart of some of my go to color combinations that I have filled my unit with.
