Egg Painter!

Hello everyone & Happy Tuesday to you all!  I am so ready for March to be over with I tell ya--it has been one of the roughest months EVER!!  Between starting the Online Copic Classes and getting this mini-magazine ready for the printers I've been working non-stop, 20 hour days and the stress has caused me to lose 18 lbs!! ACK!  But I'm happy that the online Copic Classes are going well, and although there are a few things I still need to get done over there it's running pretty smoothly and everyone seems to be enjoying them (I thank you all for that)!  I leave tomorrow for a 5 day trip to NYC that I badly need, lol--it will be nice to get out of the house and away from work for awhile to refresh my mojo!  This is an early Spring Break trip for us and we'll be seeing "South Pacific" on Broadway & hoping to spend some time in Central Park and the Zoo (supposed to be sunny & in the high 60's-yay)!  I will be checking emails and approving people for the Online Classroom in the evenings--but I'm only giving myself 1 hour a nite for that--me and the laptop have spent wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too much time together lately, lol!  So I will have 1 more post tomorrow and then not again until next week (please promise to come back & visit me)--the kids have off next week but I will be working hard and getting projects posted on the blog to make up for lost time this month!  And after this month passes I will be able to get more done for my blog thankfully!

Egg Painter Tilda

I was sooo excited to receive my new Magnolia Easter/Spring stamps from Diana of Magnolia-licious last week!  One of my favorite activities to do as a child and with my own children when they were younger was to color and decorate eggs for Easter.  Easter has always been a fun way of welcoming in Spring in our household, with hidden Easter baskets, treats, coloring Easter eggs and Easter egg hunts.  Sadly as the kids have gotten older they're not into those things as much, so we tend to travel or take a trip over Easter now to celebrate but the memories will always be there!  And have you seen the new Hoppy Easter Magnolia stamps yet?  They are CUTE as a bunny and you can see them all HERE!

This lil' cutie is "Tilda Painting Egg" and I just think she's a doll!  The papers are all by My Minds Eye (older collections from my stash) and the layout was this past Saturday's SFYTT Sketch at Jen del Muro's blog HERE!  I grabbed some more of my Prima pearl swirls and added them to the mix--gosh how I love these embellies :o)  Bow was made with my Bow Easy and then I added a button and pearl to top it off with!


She's of course colored with Copics (R22,R20,R00,BG23,BG11,BG10,C2,C1,E25,E31,Y21) and then I've added stardust Stickles to her shirt's trim, her shoe tongue and the egg--then some diamond glaze to the rest of her shoes and top of egg and paintbrush!  The background behind her was embossed using one of the Asian CB folders that I just love!  This card just makes me want to shout out "HAPPY SPRING" to you all! 

I'll be back tomorrow with a new post--see ya then!!

    Can you guysgive me a good recommendation of where is the leadingdeal on these? I live in San Francisco and I heard that the big thing about these [url=http://www.milesgershon.com][b]tv stands[/b][/url] is the cost of shipping and installation.
