Virginia’s “Five Minutes of Fame” seem to be over. The earthquake is almost forgotten – at least where I live – and the news has moved on to Hurricane Irene. I know in other areas closer to the epicenter there was more damage than we had here, but I think everything will get fixed up pretty quickly. Where I live, the worst that happened was things falling off shelves. Mom had some CDs fall over, and one of our lawn chairs toppled to its side. I think she left her CDs on the floor for a few hours, in case someone wanted an interview or photos. She was kidding, of course. Seriously, though, we are very blessed!

I wanted to practice one of the techniques for next week’s class, and this set with the Ribbon of Hope was perfect for the technique. It almost looks like the ribbon is stamped under vellum, but it’s not. I’ll post the directions for this and the Faux Brayer technique after Wednesday’s class.
I don’t know if I’m still catching up on sleep or the pollen is really bad, but I’ve been super tired today, so I’m off to bed. Thanks for stopping by!
