Journaling Bliss...and Tidbits

It's Friday of Vacation Week.

That in itself can be a let-down,
but I am still smiling
because the quiet Bliss isn't over yet.



Below, where has Golden Molding Paste
been all my life?
I love playing with texture.



Thank you for your interest and wonderings
about my London Fog gray ink.
Here is the pretty pad itself.
I have been searching high and low for
a really good pen
for journal writing
in gray, too,
and am excited to receive
some soon from JetPens.com



And here are the materials used
to carve yesterday's stamp.
I ordered these from Dick Blick
two summers ago.
It really is like cutting butter.
Really.
I should do it way more often. 
I will.


If you want a quick & fantastic
carving lesson,
and you'll find
a video
on the right side!


Find your Bliss.

Blessings
and
special love & friendship
to you all.
Thank you for visiting,
reading, and for
commenting,

Hope you had lots of sunshine this week Kathy, and thanks for the link on how to carve your own stamp... I'm not sure I'd be any good at it, but someday I'll think of something I might like to try! ;)

Thought I would finally stop by for a visit. I see you over at Kristine's blog :)

I love that white bench! There is just something so inviting about it. I'll have to try some of that molding glue when I get my studio space set up.

Happy Thursday!
