I'm back with a few of my current favorite things.....these are things that we've purchased and have enjoyed using. I get feedback from quite a few of you, that you enjoy these Favorite Things posts, so I'm popping in with some favorites that you might enjoy, too!
I'm linking to all of them on Amazon, so hopefully, if you need them in time for Christmas, you can still get them thanks to Amazon Prime. (CLICK THE IMAGES TO SEE THEM AT AMAZON)
So, I've recently discovered the wonder of leggings! LOL! Of course, I wore leggings in the 90's like everyone else! But, I hadn't had any for years and years, until I recently got these and good golly, are they soft! AND, not only that, but they're only $11.99! I'm a total fan!
And now, how about some crafty items.....
I recently broke down and got a MISTI stamping tool and I have to say that I've been really happy with how much crisper my stamped images have looked since using it. I love, LOVE being able to stamp the image more than once, to get a more solid (not spotty) impression. The colors just come out so much sharper. Granted, there was a little bit of a learning curve and in the beginning, I felt like it slowed me down a bit, but the MISTI and I have become fast friends since then. So glad I bought one!
The thing that's made a HUGE difference for me with the MISTI, are these Cricut cutting mats! I was given this tip by a friend (who is clearly a genius!) and bought one right away. There are two sticky mats in the pack. I simply cut them down, to fit snugly inside the MISTI, so that when I put my die cuts, etc. in the MISTI, they stick to the mat. This way, every time I open the door of the MISTI, I don't have die cuts coming out all over the place. Trust me on this one.....buy the mat and put it in your MISTI! Super handy!
I've taken to using this ink on all my watercolor card stock. I can watercolor over it without the color bleeding AND, I can get a crisp, black sentiment impression on watercolor card stock, which can sometimes be a problem with other inks.
I also got one of these Wink of Stella glitter pens and I really like how easy it is to add some shimmer to cards, with this little guy. Just color on a little sparkle....no fuss, no muss!
One more before I go.....this one is for your furry friends! This is currently Windsor McVey's favorite toy. In fact, when he tears one up, we buy another one....or two. He's pretty much a genius and he's worked out a deal with his daddy, wherein he plays with his toy for a bit and then, when he's ready to "trade", he takes to Bart and gives it to him and Bartley gives Windsor a treat! LOL! Of course, this is just Bart's brilliant way of making sure Windsor only plays with his toy for a little bit, before he starts actually EATING the toy. This way, when he decides he needs to EAT something, he trades in his toy for a treat! Hahaha! The things we do with our pets! :)
Anyway, that's it for the December edition of my favorite things. Hope you find something to love here! And as always, feel free to share some of YOUR favorites in the comments section, so we can all check 'em out!
Merry Christmas, dearies!
