aem {day 12}

remember making  shrinky dinks as kids?  well, i came across their website a while back & was intrigued with making charms out of shrinky dinks.  so i ordered some packets & they came last week.  i learned that you can actually stamp on the shrinky dinks’ plastic sheets, bake ’em, et voila, unique charms…

in the spirit of AEM, i experiemented using some images from my rubber stamp collection and my staz on inks.  i cut the stamped images out & then laid them on parchment paper lined cookie sheet>>>aem12.jpg  here they are, unbaked.  in a preheated oven, i put the cookie sheet containing my “experiement” and in just a couple of minutes, they literally shrank to these>>>poof…  like magic!

aem12a.jpg that was wicked fast how they just shrunk down like that!  too kewl!

aem12b.jpg  BOY, i think i’ll  be having lots of fun with these, lol…my new BFF, hahaha!!

aem12d.jpg  amazing, i know!

aem12c.jpg  yep, this will be too much fun.  i really can go to town with this as i have so many stamps to choose from.  how fab is that?! making these li’l charmers was just what i needed to offset housework drudgery…

earlier today, i was busy being the dutiful hausfrau, lol,…doing (yet another) load of laundry (argh!), vacuuming, making the beds, running the dishwasher, cooking dinner, etc., etc.   but i was still able to squeeze in some creative time…playing with my new BFF, shrinky dinks, lol, and also making these posties on my ‘puter….see i told you i wanted to make posties out of this card i made last week…

fallpostie.jpg would you like one sent to you?  just let me know & i would be happy to mail one off to you 🙂

ooooh, i cannot wait for PROJECT RUNWAY…the new season starts in less than 2 days!  i am totally & unabashedly addicted to that show.  i heard on the radio this morning someone remarking, “TIM GUNN for president!”…that gave me a chuckle for sure… 

well my pretties, i’m getting wicked tired (& btw sarah, the reason i use “wicked” alot is purely out of habit…the dh & i used to live in maine, where “wicked”  is a commonly used term…it acts as a sort of modifier…that is,  synonymous to “very”, lol…half the time, i don’t even realize that i use it…it just is second nature, i guess)…welp, until tomorrow mes amies…sweet dreams! xoxo
