    Gem, I can relate to your lack of night outs...(sorry but you won...mine aren't that long in between times) but...it was funny because I went out to dinner with my grown kids one night...and we were passing the mall in our neighborhood...It was all lit up in fancy lights...it was like a whole other world! My kids were laughing at me because I was like Whoa check out the mall it's so fancy...and I asked when they but those lights there...They said it's always been that way. LOL!

    Thank you Gemininorn! The store only sells packs, but next time I order from Dick Blick, they do have them individually, I may just try that.

    Thought I post the envies I have made, I cannot recall if I did. I also had taken a picture of all the postcards before I sent them.

    The February envelope is not watercolor, is alcohol inks that I moved the ink with extra alcohol, and a heat gun. I loved the effect. The postcards, the backgrounds are encaustics.

    When I was a kid, this kinda thing is what I wanted to learn to do for a living. I did not go for it because other people said it was a declining trade and I would never be able to support myself with it. Honestly, I regret my decision. Especially when I see Daniel Kelm , he really takes bookbinding to another plane altogether...

    This is another video of Daniel Kelms art, it is about 1h 30mins long I think, so only watch with a cuppa tea/coffee and some biscuits next to you. I know it is not a tutorial but I think he is definitely worth seeing

    I hope so Mel, that would be quite something.
    In the last video he speaks about his process and how he finds the right way to bind each book to make them more special...

    Hello Addicts! Just a small share today. I stumbled upon a YouTube that has a specific style that I dig. Maybe you'll like it too? Here's a couple of video's of her process with collage and mail art. Enjoy!

    Hello Addicts! I've been patiently waiting for the new Tim Holtz stamps...until then I keep seeing other products that he's showing off. Things that I probably would never buy...because I haven't got enough imagination of what to do with them...but dang...when you see their samples...they are too freak'in awesome! Check out this latest video of their new dies and what was made from them

    Thank you so much for posting the mail art vids Mel, Skylar has a beautiful style! I have to admit I am not too fond of TimHoltz stuff in general, although I can not think of why. I think I just prefer HD/HP for myself.

    I am so sorry I appear to have been MIA for the last week. My kids finished school and my fam and I are now officially on Easter Vacation in the south of Ireland. It rained the first two days straight, with the meteorological service issuing an orange storm warning for the day, needless to say my kids nearly went demented having to stay inside all day with the sea just in front of the door...

    I have an idea for my partners envie and am getting creating as soon as I can steal an hour or two, Iwill then post from my very, very rural and very, very local post office. I do not think they have ever seen mail art before and I did not bring any stamps so I will have to go in to the postal worker Iwill let you all know how that turned out...

    Tom Holts stuff is so cool. I just bought in the clearance section at Michaels a set of cat stamps with its die cut from him. I cannot wait to use it!

    Ireland is one of the few places I have never been. My husband and I really want to visit!
