Tuesday's Tip

I have been out of commission - life got in the way! I have successfully moved both kids into their dorms, and am recovering from a bit of the flu. I am anxious to get to doing some fun creating!

While laying low, I read the September edition of Vamp Stamp News. There was a great list of fun finds at the hardware store. It was a great reminder to check out departments other than paint (paint chips) and Formica/counter tops. 

With Steam Punk gaining in popularity, look into the nuts and bolts sections for mini washers.  There are also a plethora of tapes - painter's tape, drywall mesh and tape, carpet tape and HVAC tape (metallic Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning tape).  I will post more ideas in the future...time for me to hit the hardware store 9it has been awhile!)..

I hadn't thought about getting tapes at the hardware store - great idea! I recently hit up Lowe's to buy a bunch of tiles so I could stamp them and make them into coasters and trivets.
