WOW! Has it really been 12 days since my last post?! Sheesh! I guess I have been lost in the Christmas Space/Time Continuum. Don't ask me to explain. I assure you, it's a real thing.
Mom drove up for a few days and we celebrated the holidays in high style with lots of food, merriment, gifts, and more food...and did I mention the food? Yes, just when we didn't think we could stuff another morsel into our pie holes, enter the peanut butter fudge, gingersnaps, coconut cake, homemade marshmallows, and peppermint bark. It's been days since this food orgy subsided and I am still sitting here with a carb/sugar hangover. UGH! Oh well, it was delicious while it was going down and completely worth it ;D.
Today I'm sharing a new video tutorial I made for the Color Me Copic Club. Carlene Pinkscrapper runs this group and basically it's a club for Copic Marker enthusiasts of all levels. The members receive 6 new colors each month and this helps quickly increase their marker inventory. I try to create a monthly video tutorial that features some of these colors. The group gets together and shares artwork and tips on a super secret Facebook Page. It's a really fabulous set up!
December's video features coloring blond hair using one of my favorite hair color combos: E15, E13, Y21, and Y11. The image du jour I'm using is Rose's Portrait by Bombshell Stamps. She is an absolutely fabulous design and is perfect if you want to practice coloring skin and hair. Speaking of Bombshell Stamps...there is an Anything Goes Challenge happening on their blog through December 31st. It would be an excellent way to add to your stamping arsenal if you are randomly selected as the winner.
One more thing before I go...Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is having a Boxing Day Sale all this week and everything in her store is marked down. There are some serious deals to be had over there! Go check them out! Okay, that's it for now. I hope every had a wonderful holiday and that the New Year brings you much prosperity. Catch you in 2012!
