Fond Farewell

so...i've been putting this off for a while now and it's probably about time i just suck it up and do it. a while back i started a second blog, rocknrollcrafts. This has become an extension of the craft shows we've been going to this year and a showcase for projects that I like to share. In that, demographics has become neglected..and i hate to do that to you..o' demo-g. So, for now..I'm ending this blog and will be concentrating on just the one...

thank you all for following and joining me on this fantastic blog voyage! Keep on craftin'!! elaine

The Brooklyn Renegade Craft fair is this weekend, at McCarren park! Stencil 1 won't be having a booth there, but Chronicle books did donate 5 copies of Stencil 101 for the raffle! Plus, Mr. Stencil himself went guerilla style and hung a bunch of stenciled pieces of cardboard all around the park..find one and add your mark! ps..the stencils featured are from the next Stencil 101; Decor! wait till you see what we do with these...:)

Scor it contest

I recieved a very nice email the other day from my friend Tim at Scor-it. They make that great Scor-it board..that I Love, love, love. It has this great spongy-esque pad that makes scoring cardstock for cards, boxes, easy and it looks sooo good! :) So he's teamed up with 2 Sketches 4 You, for an American Idol-esque crafting contest. Check it out..

200th Post- Dom Deluise Tribute

I had all of these grand plans for my 200th post...until I saw this news on yahoo. I am a Mel Brooks fan from way, way back. Love me some History of the World, Producers, Twelve Chairs..etc..and am also a fan of big Cannonball Run. :) I've always loved Dom and everything he's in..that squeezable teddy bear with his wonderful laugh. My crush may have started with the Muppets..but wherever it began. and I'm saddened by his passing, as it is more of a reminder of the people we love and lose. and if you haven't seen Cannonball Run..just watch it. It's hilarious.
