I’ve tried and reviewed the Wink Of Stella and Wink of Luna Markers here on CTD, and truthfully, they are lovely. They add a lovely glittery shine as a topcoat and for the holidays they are perfect. Except. Except I left mine behind in our big move… all my Winks, left behind. (Cue the dramatic scream: :”NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”) via GIPHY So what is a CraftTestDummy to do? Make her own, of course. I recently reviewed the Delicata metallic ink pads, and […]

But it was in sore need of a makeover! So I used Ceramcoat Chalk Paint to give it a facelift! (Disclosure: Plaid sent me the paint, but I’m sharing this because I used it and I loved it.

You’ll need: Sisal Rug Freezer […]

While at CHA Summer 2009 in Orlando, Florida, I came across the Sakura booth. I’ve heard of them as they produce the 3D Crystal Laquers that I know and love, but at the booth they were showing off a new product: a two-part UV resin. Surf on […]

Hiya! New year, new venture. I’ve been blogging for about 2 years at CraftTherapy.com and I’ve been thinking about all of the stuff I’d like to say or try… but it just doesn’t seem right for that venue. I am sometimes a little um..opinionated (Jeff, my husband is rolling his eyes) and maybe even verging on snarky. And cranky. (Now he’s nodding.) But I love crafting, exploring new products, techniques and sharing ideas with others… and being honest- brutally, scathingly […]
