More Rooster Decor for the Home

Rooster Coaster BoxYesterday I showed you the rooster framed work I made.  Today I was able to finish a set of four coasters and a storage box for the coasters that match the framed art.  These are going to be great for someones kitchen or dining room!

I want to remind everyone about the upcoming What is it and what do I do with it class.  This class will be Friday, April 17 beginning at 6:30 P.M. in my home.  I Handstamped Rooster Coasterhope you will plan to attend and learn how to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Circle Scissor Plus and other tools carried by Stampin’ Up!  If you plan to attend please RSVP to me by Wednesday, April 15 so I can prepare.  Those who plan to attend can let me know when they register if there is a certain tool they would like to see used.

Friday, April 24 from 6:30-9:30 P.M. is our next PMS (Pizza, Music and Stamping) night here at my house.  This is an open stamping night for anyone to attend.  The cost is $5 to cover the food.  An RSVP is not mandatory but helpful when it comes to buying the food!

In other news, the Stampin’ Up! Double Stitched Ribbon and Stampin’ Up! Striped Grosgrain Ribbon share is ready for pick up.  I have cut and wound all of the ribbons so if you participated in this share you can get them now.  I mailed the ribbon that needed to be mailed today.  The Hardware Share items were ordered on Tuesday so they should arrive next week sometime.  I will let you know when they are ready for pickup/mailing.

Have you ever wondered about the history of Stampin’ Up!  This is their 20th anniversary year so there is some history there to be told.  If you’ve been curious, you may wish to visit the blog of Stampin’ Up! founder Shelli Gardner.  Shelli writes on her blog on occasion, often speaking about Stampin’ Up! and her family.

Thank you for stopping by and thank you for the comments some of you have been leaving – I read each one!

    I hope you are ready to make more, because those won’t last long!

  2. Gorgeous. Just one quick question; did you use Stazon? how do you keep it water proof? That is just beautiful. I have to get my hands on that stamp set! Any chance it will go from hostess gift into something the rest of us can buy;)?
    Such a great idea. What a creative brainiac you are!

    • Hi Wendi,

      Thank you so much for visiting my website and leaving a comment! Yes, I did use Stazon ink for these projects. It always seems to be the best bet with watercoloring. Stampin’ Up! does not put any of their hostess sets into the catalog for purchase (they used to but changed that a couple years ago.) Once July 1st rolls around there will probably be demonstrators selling their sets. Just keep your eyes peeling and you might be able to find one for sale. I have not yet decided if I will sell this stamp set right away in July or not. I hope you’ll check back for my list!

      Thank you for your compliments!
