Regular Paper TOO Boring?

So with the Holiday Season right around the corner some people like to send out cards to friends and family and the boring white envelopes are just so bland. To Marble yea I just said Marble your paper this is what you'll need to have and do and the great thing is you most likely will have all of these things at home!

What You'll Need:

  • Shaving Cream
  • Food coloring 
  • Heavy weight envelopes  (or cardstock)
  • Painters or Washi Tape
  • Papper Towels 
  • A Ruler
  • Spatula (you will need to be able to scoop with)
  • Baking Dish (rectangular or Square)
  • Optional Toothpick 
What You'll Do:

  1. First mask off the opposite side of the side your going to marble with your tape.
  2. Now the fun begins take your shaving cream and pour a reasonable amount into your pan then put just a couple of drops of food coloring into the foam.
  3. With your spatula fold the shaving cream to mix in the color. Don't color all of your shaving cream just create a nice swirl pattern.
  4. Once your first coat is nicely swirled you can take a toothpick or a small item and dip it lightly into the coloring then swirl it around in the shaving cream. You can repeat this step until you have the pattern you would like in your cream.
  5. Then take your envelope and place it in the colorful shaving cream with the tape side facing up.
  6. Lightly press the paper into the shaving cream. You can't let the paper sit in the cream for a long time for it to start to get too wet. So then gently pick the paper up at one end of the envelope and peel and place on your paper towel. 
  7. Take your ruler and scrape the foam off of your paper in a sweeping like manner.
  8. Then take a new paper towel and wipe away any extra shaving cream. Then let the paper dry off to a new location.
  9. You can repeat steps 5-8again until you complete marbling your papers but before you place each new envelope into the shaving cream again give it a few swirls.
  10. Once all  of your masterpieces have dried place them under a big book to become flat again.

Let's Talk Our New Look...

Do You Like It? We care. We want to know!

Out With The Old In With The New!

Oh the lovely clutter of a crafting room. We recently organized our craft room, and we have a few tips that might just help you unclutter yours.

First of all...
LET GO! It will be difficult to say goodbye to all of that torn paper. Recycle it, and know that it will be used again for a good purpose. Throw away all of the broken bins... You can always buy new ones.
Oh, and those broken scissors that have been through everything with you... There are always new ones.
First of all, don't expect this to be a clean project. You, as a crafter, should know that the best of

projects take up the most time, space, and stress.

Make three piles...
The first one is a trash bag, or recycling bin if you are Eco friendly!
The next one is a " um... Maybe" pile.
The last one is a keep pile. Try not to make this the ONLY PILE.
Old pens can be thrown, so can glitter. No buts!

Hobby Lobby has some great bins!
Target has awesome drawers!
Remember that old bins can always get a new coat of paint or be wrapped in new fabric! This is a great way to get rid of all of those unwanted fabric scraps!

We have recently added a new board on our Pinterest that has some great ideas.

God Girl......... Wednesday! What to read when you have lost your faith. There is a God.

You NEED To Know Nothing.

Science tells us that the entire universe was created by a big bang, and that we have a "self-creating" universe.
Science also tells us that humans went through evolution.
People tell us that we can't believe in God if we believe in any one of these, or both.

Religion tells us that God created the universe.

We will never be able to completely understand exactly how God created the universe. This is a problem for most human beings, including me. I am the kind of person, that needs hard facts. I almost lost my faith because of this bad habit. I hope that after reading this post you will never doubt God.

No human was there to write the creation story into the Bible, as it was happening. We believe that God guided the writers of the bible to write the creation story; in fact the Bible is not said to be completely historically accurate until the time of Abraham. This does not mean that whatever happened before this didn't happen, it just means that a few of the details may have changed a bit. Like EXACTLY what was said or what color a certain object was.

I can see how the evolution of humans could be partly true.
To me that just makes God WAY smarter because I know that there is no way that humans could have ever survived like we are now in past climates.

We don't know exactly how God did it, but he did create the universe, and we know that he did it out of love. That's all we need to know.

Don't let anyone set any standards to your faith because you don't need to know anything to have faith.
You're probably better off without knowing anything, to be honest.

God has worked many miracles in my life, enough for me to believe. I can't explain how those happened either, but I know that they did. That's enough for me.
