Played with a bit of paint today, and other odds n ends.

Hi there!  How are you?  Hopefully super fab!  I played with a Radiant Rain Dauber ~ Hot Cinnamon.  Woooo, it is so pretty and sparklie!  Love it.  I worked on blinging up some embellies.  I hope to work on tags this Friday when I am home.  This is going to be a crazy chaotic week, so that will be my next bit of free time.  Anyway, here is a pic of some of my stuff ~

I added some Sakura 3D Dimensional Glaze to some pieces, and some Glossy Accents to others.  Some items I left as they are.  I can't believe all the sparkle!  Woo, love that.  I promise to show you what I create with these bits of odds n ends soon.  In the meantime, I promised to show you a few more cards I made with the Bazzill Card Bases my friend Patti sent in the RAK I won (she has a great blog, go check it out).  I am LOVING playing with these babies!  Fun colors, and it saves me time cutting and folding.  These cards were like 3 minute cards.  Here they are ~

Isn't Bruce stinkin adorable???  His name is Bruce Wayne, because he has a mask like Batman.  We just call him Bruce.  Yes, we are kind of weird!  :) 

Remeber when I posted this card a few weeks ago? You can go check out the tutorial for making it on the Bind-It-All Blog.  Take a peek, and please tell me what you think.  I hope someone finds the tutorial useful.  It doesn't have to be a Christmas Card, you can change it up to be whatever type card you want.  Have fun!

One more bit of news ~ Citrus Tree Studio will be having a SUPER fun Online Crop.  Here are the deets ~
Friday, December 31st (starting at 6:00 p.m. (eastern)) through Sunday, January 2nd, 2011 (ending at 12 midnight(eastern)).

Hope you check it out, it should be a blast, fun challenges, and Cindy always gives out great prizes to the winners!

Well, sorry for kind of a short post, but I need to go cut and wrap my carmels.  They take forever to make, then they have to sit undisturbed for 24 hours.  Ater that they take forever to cut and wrap, yikes.  But they are delich, and the people who receive them always love them.  So they are definitely worth the work.  It has been 24 hours since I poured the carmel in the baking pans, so off to cut and wrap I go.  Hope you all have a creative and happy week ~ Pam

WOOOOO, it might be freezing outside, but it is warm in my crafty area!

Helllllllllloooooooooooooooo!  How are you?  Fab?  Super fab?  I hope so!  It has been crazy busy around here, but I have still been able to sneak some crafty time in.  Here are a few pics of what I have created the last few weeks ~

Some fun ornaments ~
Here are a few close up shots ~

I played with some fun buttons that I received in a Blog Candy package from my friend Patti.  It was Ah-mazing!  Loaded with alllllll sorts of fun things.  I grabbed the buttons and made the wee little wreath ornament, it only took a few minutes to complete.  Thanks Patti!!!  :)  Here is a peek at the wreath while it was under construction ~

A few more ornaments or package decorations, I used some of the fantastic Twinkling H2Os for lots of shimmer and shine ~

Here is a side view of one of the clips, I used wee little clothespins, now I can easily attach these little angels to the tree, a wreath, or a package ~

A close up view, can you see the shimmer?   ~
Cards, this one created with a stamped sheet of cardstock that I painted with the Radiant Rain Daubers (took about 15 seconds MAX to cover a whole sheet of cardstock, LOVE the sparkle and vibrant color), and of course used my quick and easy Distrezzer to distress some of the edges ~

Another card I made, this took about 2 minutes to put together ~

I also used some of the beautiful Bazzill Cards and Envies that Patti sent me, sorry I forgot to take a pic.  I will share those next week.  :)
Then this afternoon I made the YUMMIEST Chocolate pecan Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies.  I will definitely be making a few more batches to share!   

I hope you are enjoying the month of December.  It has been kind of wild here weather wise, but then again, it is December.  Hope you are all staying warm and dry!  OK, I am off to wrap a few presents, so take care.  Have a joyful and creative week ~ Pam  

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
