Stephanie Barnard Stamps

I am a member of The Stamps of Life, have been for over a year. That means I get a new stamp set each month. I got the owls2love set and loved the little owl, but wasn't sure what I would do with it. I was checking out the gallery on Stephanie's site and suddenly had the funniest idea for this set.

So after working it a bit, I ended up using 5 of the sets from her collection, and here is the end product...

That large fish is actually the owl's body!

Anyway go check out the site and see if there are any stamps you like. They are very reasonably priced, and fun to use.

Happy Hallowe'en (A tribute to Steve Jobs)

Although this isn't a card, book or scrapbook page, it is something created by me.

My friend Vanessa came up with the idea to be an iPod for Hallowe'en, so we scavenged what we could in the art room at the school. We came up with felt, a sheet, some mactac paper, clear page protectors, some apple sauce cups, some grey material and from the gym we borrowed a couple of skipping ropes.

I got to work on my sewing machine, with just an idea in my head, and this is the end result.



We used the skipping ropes as the ear phones, that was probably the hardest thing to figure out!

You can see them here as Vanessa is holding them up while I am rocking out!!

We shall be wearing these at our schools, and then we are thinking it would be a great idea to go to the Apple store in the Eaton Centre.
