Super cool Coffee Charms!

I think these are so cute and such a great idea.  I've made some stitch markers for my mom-in-law, and some planner charms for others, and think this would make such a great addition. I'm also thinking that these would make great handmade Christmas gifts for Coffee Lovers! Oh NO!  Now I'll want to get… Continue reading Super cool Coffee Charms!

Adventures in Crafting: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

I recently received another 24 pack of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I know that everyone on the Interwebs raves about Copics.  I've been just unwilling to invest that much while I'm learning.  Of course, I didn't expect to want a 2nd pack of these either.  Luckily, I found a great sale, and will be waiting… Continue reading Adventures in Crafting: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
