Pens, Pens and More Pens........

    Hey yall.... it's Saturday! I hope you all are enjoying a lovely weekend. I have many projects I am trying to do around the house this weekend and going to my girlfriend's craft party on Sunday. It's going to be fun!
Today I wanted to tell you about some new pens and my thoughts. I enrolled in yet another Studio Calico class called ... Agenda. Like I needed another class. I wanted to start it with a great pen.

    The pen that is being sold for the class the pilot-frixon-erasable-pen and I purchased it. I also purchased a Uniball Signo 207 in Bold. I compared them both to the extra fine Sharpie. Here are my thoughts.
The winner!

The uniball is just as great as the sharpie in its powerful punch of blackness. The only difference is it glides so smooth on paper! The frixion for me was just ok but I do love the fact you can erase. 

Here is the backside of my page in my notebook.The sharpie tends to show up. So there you have it.
If your lookin for a great pen go for the Retractable Uniball Pen (Bold) .

Let's write!

Get Messy Art Journal: Let's do this!

 Ok you know the drill....... it's THURSDAY! Today I am sharing pages out of my journal with you folks. Now keep in mind I'm an amature! I create with my two little hands and I usually don't know what comes out until I'm sitting there and sh** just starts happening. This week I'm a lil angry lol - why you ask...? Ok hmm I will tell you. I want a new filofax planner or a kiki k planner BUT I can not bring myself to buy it. I have a new Kate Spade Agenda and an old Kate Spade A5. Oh and a new Bando planner that's totally cute but way to small. So yeah I'm pist and just basically being a baby. Ok enough I will get over it. :)
Let's get messy shall we.........



That's me and you!

I used a white jelly roll from Sakura on this blk card stock. I think this white pen is pretty damn awesome :)



The madness. Filo this and that. Forget that noise I'm going to make my Kate Spade planner shine!  




Oh here we have these washi tapes that I just am totally crushing on. 

I decided they all needed to be shown. 


So I just wrote my feelings to them. That's normal right? 



Oh ok ... here is my drawing of Jackie O. I love her and her style. I secretly want to cut my hair short like her.

Ok my friends please go check out my #getmessy sisters!

Let's laminate everything! DIY Project Life Tag

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a project life tag I made for my " This is me class" with Maggie Holmes. I started off with free printable's from Shanna Noel. I cut these out by hand and made a tag that I could use on my page. I have tons of lil confetti from Studio Calico and I never know what to do with them. So here we goooo....





Easy peasy lemony squeezey! All that was left to do after this was to trim the edges! Best lil invention for $17.99 at your local target!


Here are some tags I created for my nephew's sweets table.

Armed & Dangerous @ the VINTAGE FAIR! Take a peek!

So this is not what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas type of thing.... us girls were armed and dangerous!
We met at Starbucks at 7am. Coffee and carts in hand we headed off on a treasure hunt!This is our second time attending this fair... we had a game plan! We stuck to the game plan and we pretty much killed it!
This space is huge.. it took us 6 hours to cover the ground but it was so worth it. Sorry for the picture overload but we just had way too much FUN!
Before: Coffee Queens!













Here we are all smiles and super tired! I met all these girls from Instagram. I never thought that an iphone APP would bring me the sweetest friends that I want to know for many years to come. Something about having a hobby that brings you so much joy! Sorry to get sappy but we had crazy fun! We came home with lots of goodies and great deals!

You can visit my crafty friends here:  LindaLiz and Renee
