I went to a scrapbooking garage sale on Saturday and picked up a few items.  A new 12x12 album and extra 8x8 clear sleeves for my daughters 2 year album.  Two very much needed items that I have been putting off getting. 
I also picked up a few other things and one was Making Memmories Paints.  I have been wanting to try my hand a painting for a while now and finally bought some.  I stopped by and picked up some foam paint brushes and I can't wait to get started.  Of course I started not feeling very well that night and still not 100% today.  I'm hoping I start feeling better soon so I can try out my new toys. 


  1. good luck... i tried painting but i want to try distressing something now :)

  2. Very cool!
    I'm a fan of the Tim Holtz crackle paint... have you tried that one?
    (By the way I'm following from the Swap-Bot swap from my personal blog) :)
    Take care.

  3. I haven't used the Tim Holtz yet but I have heard a lot of good stuff about Tim Holtz supplies. Thanks for the tip. :)

  6. Ah, paint....I grow ever so much more attached as the years go by!

    Have at it :)


  7. The lady that has the garage sale has her own scrap store on-line. She has a garage sale every once in a while to get rid of last years products to make way for this year. And, she has fab deals.
    I distress all the time and I agree it is addicting.

    Yes, the paint has a beautiful pearl finish. It looks even better in person.
