My Man Thursday


 I have been obsessed with this show called The Pacific. It is so so good. Check it out but be prepared it's very violent and graphic but the story of what these men went through during WWII is incredible.

For this Thursday my guy is James Badge Dale the guy who plays Leckie.

Grab a tissue and start watching. The extras are outstanding.

My New Mother's Day Dress Garland

I have just finished a Garden Dress Garland for Mother's Day. I love this one. I used a muslin fabric on the dress. It reminds me a an old fashion garden apron.

This will be available at Bliss inside Fancy That in a few days. I will be making a couple of more with the Mother's Day garden theme and putting them on Etsy helpfully soon.

An Idiot Abroad~And A Correction

First of all,  An Idiot Abroad is funny and cute and I love Karl even if he is an idiot. Watch it on the Science Channel (don't ask why). You can't help but love Karl's sweet dumbfounded face. I didn't really care for the India episode but the "alright wall" of China episode was funny and so was the Jordan episode. Very much worth the watch.

NOW!! I am sure you will never believe me again but I said a couple of posts back that Portlandia was funny. Well after watching all the episodes that are available and after admitting to myself that its not funny I need to say Portlandia is --stupid. Just plain stupid.

We have a slogan here in Portland it says Keep Portland Weird. Well the show isn't clever enough to be weird it's just dumb. There was one bright spot, the PCC hide and seek tournament and maybe the Woman and Woman First skit.

 I have asked several Portlanders and we all say- what the what???? And even though after the second episode we spent much of the day saying cacao randomly to anyone we thought had seen the show we quickly shivered and shook our heads because that cacao skit was disturbing.

So there you have it watch An Idiot Abroad for fun and Portlandia for boredom.

My Own Decorative Tape

I am sure some of you have seen the decorative tapes that are out there. Their is the Washi Japanese Tape.

And Tim Holtz has his tissue tape tim holtz  But I don't have a lot of money to be spending on tape so I thought I would make my own. It is so fun in fact I can't stop making it.

Here's how:

You will need StazOn ink pads, masking tape, wax paper, and any stamps you want.

Now you are ready.

Rip off a good size of wax paper. Lay it down. Now rip of strips of masking tape and stick it to the wax paper.  Find your stamps and ink colors.
Once you get some designs you like cut the wax paper into strips around your tape.

Oh and make sure you give the ink time to dry a bit. It doesn't take long.
Voila! You are done. Now start sticking your strips everywhere.

I decorated a bulletin board.

I wrapped the tape around a flameless candle. So fun. I can't wait to find other places for my tape.

A New Twist On Twisties

You know those things your kids love to grab in the produce department at the grocery store? Those twisty things?? Ringing any bells? Well, I found a bunch of white one as I was cleaning out my utensils draw today and thought I would put them to good use. Here's how you can too.

You will need:
white twisties (I call them this I don't know their real name) brown ones would work also but the look would be more rustic and I am not sure if the colors would pop as much.
Staz-On ink pad
A large background stamp of anything you would like ink splashes, paint splat's, polka dots etc.

Lay out your twisties stamp them  a couple of times turn them over do it again. Guess what?
 You're done!! Very simple.

These are great to finish off any treat bag for a special someone. I used a pencil and wrapped the twisty around it to create curly twisties.
