well you see its like this... I am kinda sorta working on dirty samples. ( you are getting ready to play along with us right? DTGD is coming August 1st. so, you have plenty of time to renew your fan club membership at Splitcoaststampers if needed) and I turned around and I "seen" that pile of boxes of cut up rubber from club scrap from what a month ago? I "think" there may be things in there I would want to use if I knew what was in there was the stray thought so, on monday instead of continuing making samples I got sidetracked and put the cling foam on every piece of rubber. and then I remembered my last few LOTV stamps were also neekid in the dresser... so, dug those out and got them done too. and I "vowed" to come inside and sit at the computer and unsubscribe to every one of those co. that does not offer their stamps on cling foam. did I do it? ( no ) but, the sticky disaster-ness of this is still fresh in my mind on Wednesday am looking at this photo again so, I know it will be a long long time before I do it again. anyways, off to the sides are bits and pieces I am pushing around. after the stamps were cleaned up ( glue got on the rubber ) and the backing papers all removed I did get another sample done. something way different then I normally make and I kinda like how it turned out. I am going to flood this blog with "additional" photos of things that don't end up in the gallery as it happens. across the top are a few things I colored and finally took upstairs yesterday after work and off to the right is a new set from Unity and a new set from Dylusions. and then the mail came... and I got the bird crazy dies delivered. and I looked at that and thought why did you buy these? ( for 5 birds there are 18 dies) so, I think I am going to have to play with those today and see if I can figure out why I ordered them ( besides the hype) my first impression was you have not done so bad with cutting them out and paperpiecing them as of yet but, the whole body dies do include the feet and tail curls so we will see. I am going to be in and out making the rounds mostly I am getting ideas for samples while watering and weeding and not online as much right now.
