Finding Time

I've been meaning to post, really, I have! Somehow the days disappear with kids activities, household duties, writing articles and yes, occasionally playing in my scrap space. Today was to be a day off for me to design but I ended up with a sick child at home - poor baby!

That of course means no play time for me, BUT I decided to share this great Cheat Sheet that I found over on Splitcoast Stampers that is a great TIMESAVER!
It has all the standard measurements for so many of the projects that we so often make, but have to pause and think.. hmmm, now how how big was that anyways??

I've got mine printed out and taped up by my workspace... which I hope to play in tonight by the way, so maybe, just maybe there will be an actual PROJECT online tomorrow. Who knows!

Until then, check out this really FABULOUS new Canadian Company - Black River Designs. I used some of their rub-ons in some layouts I sent in to Canadian Scrapbooker last month ... OMG they are so nice to work with! No cracking, easy transfer, but not so sticky that they fall off and stick to everything BUT they layout you want to work on, KWIM? I also found that the designs were interesting, and many of them large enough to use as a design element, not just a little embellishement. Love 'em!

I've got some of their paper in my stash to play with too. I've been staring at it, had it out on my worktable for a while now, it's so nice to look at, but tongith I am hoping to use it in this new mini book I am looking at teaching for valentines day!

Check in later, you never know what you might find!
