Wild and Precious life

 Happy Friday!
Sorry about the late post, but I was pretty excited that I had some time for some 'me' time, 
which equals crafty time!!

I went outside the box tonight.
I have lots of stamps, especially Unity, 
(although probably not as many as some of you gals---you know whom you are!)
and I haven't been 'following' them lately.
Miss them....honestly do.

And as I was looking through my bin of Unity stamps yesterday, 
I told myself, "Laura--you must use these before they wither and die away!"
Yep, I was talking to myself, and to beat that, I actually answered!

Tonight, I wanted to make a nice bag for someone's gift.
I had these canvas bags from my Studio Calico's Project Life subscription from
a few months ago. I had an idea!
With this awesome stamp from Unity, and a dye ink, and a hard
surface (obviously!), I inked up that stamp, and stamped away.
Then I went to color the inside of the stamp with my Sharpies, 
when I realized that my son hadn't brought them home from school.
From a project that was a few weeks ago.
No problem. Paint to the rescue.
Used acrylic paint, and a fine paintbrush, and le
I really like my creation!
And it turns out that I am actually able to enter this in a couple of challenges:

So, there you have it.
Have a great night!!
Be safe. Get crafty!

I had the same discussion with myself this week, Laura. AND I'm possibly one of the gals you mention. LOL!

Great idea for a gift bag. Really fun sentiment as well.
