Who better to give us a honey jar stamp than Honey Bee Stamps? I like this stamp set lots, coz…well…it’s got a hex stamp in it! ha! Yeah, I’m just a bit obsessed, I know. But it fits with the whole bee and honey theme too. And, YELLOW. Yep! Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

The patterned paper is verrrrry old – but you could use whatever suits  you from your stash. Lots of ways to customize this jar with lots of pretty paper “fabrics!”Sandy Allnock Coloring a glass honey jar

A little patriotica for Independence Day…you knew it was coming!

This card evolved as I worked through it – and I recommend seeing a card through to the end in case you end up with a cool rescue! This one uses stamps I just bought from Reverse Confetti in their recent release. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This card ended up being the birthday card (with Happy Birthday stamped inside) for an elderly veteran in my Toastmasters club. He is SO proud of his service, and we’re proud of him!Sandy Allnock Home of the Free

Copic Coloring Chocolate – and other sweets

Copic Coloring Chocolate – and other sweets

Or mostly chocolate. But lots of sugar. 🙂

Copic Coloring Chocolates. And other sweets!

I have a wicked sweet tooth….bakeries are dangerous! But these little sweeties sent to me by Clearly Besotted don’t add one inch to my waistline, so I indulged in coloring alllllllllllllll the sweets! Watch the video below or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

When a card has this much beautiful coloring on it, the design can stay super simple – so I just popped the layer on a clean white card base. Easy peasy!

Magical Monday: Memorial Day Picnic, Inky Antics

Today I bring you a quick little magical-Monday-speed-coloring of a critter picnic…enjoy!

Memorial Day Picnic

While today is a day many think of only picnicking – be sure you and your friends and family remember the real reason for the federal holiday in the United States….remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. There are families today remembering their fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, who are not there to enjoy a burger or a slice of pie; please keep them in your prayers.

Auction WINNER! The highest bid was from Jo Ann & Dave Crain – congratulations! I’ll send you an email to connect. Thank you to everyone who put in bids!

I’ll be out of pocket all day for the holiday – taking an actual day off, gasp! 🙂 I’m hoping there’s no classroom stuff that needs to be dealt with, and if so – I’ll take care of things tonight. Thanks for your patience! 🙂

Copic Marker Shortage….WHY?!!?

Copic Marker Shortage….WHY?!!?

For some time you’ve likely been noticing there are not many Copic markers available, either in brick-and-mortar stores or online. Don’t blame your retailer…the demand has just grown so fast that it’s exceeding production! Please know that I wasn’t asked to create today’s video – nor am I compensated by Copic for this. I reached out to them for information to pass along to you about why there are so few markers for us to get our hot little hands on!

Copic Marker Shortage…why!??!

I knew that our retailers have been having trouble getting markers for us. And with my Copic Jumpstart class coming up, the shortage has become more urgent! And doing some research – I found that it’s not a shortage, they’re making more markers than ever. It’s just not enough.

I contacted my friend Marianne at Copic to ask what the reasons are. She wrote me a hilarious explanation back, which I adapted to turn into this explanation. She mentioned squirrels – which then led me to this absolutely silly drawing of a rodent in love! He really wants you to be in love with Copics, not his tail. 🙂 Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Annnnnd the finished silly squirrel in love…LOL.

I hope the explanation helped give you a little peace of mind. More markers ARE coming. It just takes time.

You can help!

  1. When visiting your favorite online retailers, if you sign up for notifications on out-of-stock markers, please know that many of them base orders on how many people are on the wait list. If you sign up for a color, go back there to buy it when it’s in stock. If you don’t do this, there are two consequences for all of us:
    1. The retailer has invested a lot of cash on those colors – and can’t bring in other cool products for us.
    2. Those markers are now out of the “pool.” So if another store is dying to get their hands on a Y17 and they’re all in a different store – the other store can’t get them. Gah.
  2. When visiting your brick and mortar retailers, if you request a special order of a pen, buy it there. Same reasons as #1!
  3. Gather with your community colorists! Get a Copic coloring group together monthly…you can share colors with each other, reink each other’s pens…plus it’s lots of FUN! Get together at a local scrap or stamp store if you can, and support them by shopping there.
  4. Share this video or blog post with your friends. Let them know too!
