I hope you enjoy this kit I created to wish my dear sister in law, Judy, a Happy (BELATED) birthday. I was sooo disappointed not to get it out to her in time, but between the huge learning curve it took to make it, and getting the birthday album for Alicia (the one that got uploaded to mypublisher.uk) took its toll too. Anyways, here is the kit and Judy says she would like to share it with you all! Please if you have the time, visit her blog HERE and leave her an encouraging comment - she's been working long hours and your words may be just what's needed to lift her up.
I am taking a friend to our local painters and potters group today, for her first time. My friend is and older woman and she has been coming to the Adult Learning Center for some time, learning digital art. She mentioned she has all the supplies to do 'real' painting, so I thought it would be nice for her to meet the wonderful ladies at our group so she can paint with them all summer...while we are on vacation. Its nice to be able to share with my talents and gifts, they would be meaningless to keep to myself.

and to be generous
and willing to share.
Yes...I've been trying to decide when to break it to you all, but my dearest husband and I holiday/honeymoon all summer long during school break. However, I AM taking my computer, and I will periodically fill you up with news, pics, elements, tips and chit chat. Honestly, you have become as much a part of my being as I hopefully have become to you. I get a huge kick out of your comments and knowing that I provide something valuable. :) We go from the first week of July, until the end of August.
BARB'S TIP # 29
Pinless Poster Hanging
Can't take credit myself for this one...read it in a magazine... For some of you who have teen daughters... (Judy, Gina eg....) If your daughters hang posters up on thier walls, here's a BETTER method than poking pins into the walls. Dab white toothpaste on each of the poster's corners and then stick it to the wall, applying light pressure to the pasted areas. The cellulose in the toothpaste binds the toothpaste to the wall, while glycerin in the toothpaste keeps it from losing its holding power. When you remove the poster, simply wipe away the residue with a damp, soapy cloth.
