random tuesday

thought i'd change it up a little bit and give you a tuesday roundup instead this week. it's been snowing for 36 hours straight and i'm freezing and tired and feeling a bit out of sorts. so let's shake up the blog too!

number one.
my incredibly talented friend melissa of is*ly fame is giving away the coolest thing: you transcribe a note, and she'll write it out in her lovely calligraphy writing on special stationery. such a fun idea! she has great writing too. click here to enter, before wednesday at midnight!



number two.
have you heard about the versamark pen? versamark makes fun watermark stamp pads [and i'm sure they make other things too, but that's what i know them best for] and now they've put that ink into a pen. now, instead of inking and embossing only stamped images, you can ink and emboss anything you can draw!
i made invitations to a friend's baby shower a few weeks ago, and embossed my hand-written "who," "when" and "where" with chocolate brown american crafts embossing powder. it made it shiny and raised and gave it a special touch, i think.

number three.
i like wreaths. twig & thistle shows four fun paper-related ones here. check em out.
