shaving cream take 3

This is another example of what this technique can look like. For this one I used Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler Re-inkers. When you are using more than 3 colors, and esp if they are dark colors you really need to be careful when you are swirling the colors so you do not muddy them, and also so you spread them out a bit, otherwise they can look black.

Stamps: French Foliage, Occasional Quotes
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler re-inkers, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, So Saffron, Whisper White
Misc: Hodgepodge Hardware, Re-inkers, Shaving Cream, Dimensionals

I'm hoping to get creating with some new and awesome products soon, but things are still crazy around here, I've spent the entire long weekend getting caught up around here doing yard work, house work, and visiting family. On the plus side my garden is starting to come in, I have a small amount of peas, beans, and berries already and more coming and the radishes, lettuce and onions will be close behind, then hopefully the carrots, zucchini and potatoes will keep growing so I can have a decent amount of them this year. I'm thinking I might have done something to the beans by accident though. I planted pole beans which should grow up the pole, and some are growing vines and growing up the pole, but a bunch on the other end of the garden never grew vines, and are growing beans on tiny little plants near the ground. The kinda cool thing about that is the beans are curling as they grow, and they look like curly fries.

My cake business seems to be taking off as well. I'm getting orders every few days it seems which is great, but it cuts into my crafting time. I have plans to send my kid away for a day or two ( I'm hoping) next week and I plan to spend the entire time crafting.
