Hey there! It’s Friday Funday (not sure if that’s a thing yet, but it might be – we’ll try it out!), and I made another video this week about reinking Distress Ink pads. I just got in a big order of reinkers, and I realized that I’ve never talked about how reinking works and what I do. I’ve gotten lots of questions about this, so here’s a quick video explaining what I’ve learned over the years.
I hope you enjoy the video! If you have any questions, please leave a comment below and I’ll make sure to respond.
While I was taking shots with my camera for this post, I got a little carried away. But looook… things are so pretty when they’re lined up! These photos were all taken with my beloved Nikon D90, a Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AD Nikkor lens and my Opteka .45x Macro lens converter.
Speaking of getting carried away, my enabler bone wants to let you know that as of yesterday, all Tim Holtz Distress Markers are officially in stock at Simon Says Stamp. Woohoo for no more preorders! Hop over there and pick up your set now! If you could only buy a few markers to start out with, I recommend starting with the blues first because they’re my favorite. You’re going to want to blend these babies together! (Try out Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire if you’d like to try out just one color family first.)
Aren’t they pretty? I can’t wait to sit down and play with them more this weekend! That’s definitely happening. So much fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you enjoyed the little tips. I would love to hear some of your distress ink tips if you have one to share! I’m always ready to learn more. :) This week has been so wonderful to me. New fun toys to play with, happy e-mails and catching up with old friends. Everything is good and falling into place. I’m so happy.
Health update: My health is also getting progressively better as I’m working through my stress and feeling accomplished at the end of most days. My doctor even prescribed less medication for me for the first time in years today, and I’m over the moon about that. The less chemicals I need to put in my body, the better.
For you fellow IBS sufferers out there, I’m starting working on incorporating Peppermint Oil Capsules (from Heather’s Tummy Tamers) as well as Heather’s Tummy Fiber into my diet. My mom (and many others) uses these and says they’re awesome, so I can’t wait to have less tummy aches in the coming weeks! I’m sure you’ll hear about them more if they become my new favorite thing. And in case you’ve forgotten, I’m 22 years old. IBS has always seemed to me like something that affects older adults (probably because my grandma and mom have suffered with it for a long time), but it’s actually WAY more common in people under the age of 30. Crazy, right? The best part about these things is that they will not hurt anyone who takes them and does not have IBS, so if someone is having constant stomach aches, trying these out can only make you feel better or stay the same. Yay for natural remedies! Someday, I hope to be completely natural with my treatments. A girl can dream, right?!
Thanks for all of your love, comments and support. Smiles are the best medicine. :) I love you all and will be back soon with another post! Have a wonderful, crafty weekend. :)
