Copics notepad

ok!! where did the weekend go?!?! guess it wasn't a very good one so i didn't pay much attention to the time or days.... LOL... oh well... weekend is in the past now... i hope you had a fantastic weekend doing whatever it was that you were doing!!!

sorry for the lack of posting... with blogger having some issues, i had my share too... so i tried to avoid blogger while the kinks were being fixed... even tried to leave some comments, but my dashboard was totally whacked!! i had posts from people showing up, but they posted it like days ago... WOW! yah i didn't want to deal with the frustration.... hehe... and then, one of my postings went back into draft form... arrrghhh! i'll have to fix that too!

got to craft a bit over the weekend... whenever i could get some free time to do so.... with 2 kiddies sick, not much could be done... but i do thank my mom for helping me out Saturday night with the kiddies... she gave me some time to craft in peace, while someone else decided they didn't have responsibilities... um yah! not going there.... LOL

i was in much need of a notepad or book or something to keep track of the Copics i've been collecting... especially when i go craft shopping... not knowing what i already have lead me to buying doubles or even wrong fillers... LOL..
this is a small notepad i put together using my Cinch and measures approx. 3x5... i have yet to add labels so i can easily find pages, but i did add all the Copic colors i have so far... =D using one of the Anyas from TGF's Miss Anya Collection and the challenge over at ATS - Paper Piecing, i was able to make a fun notepad... a lot of these papers are scrap, which made it MORE fun, trying to figure out how to use them... even the ribbon on the wire are scraps... used some sticker letters to spell out Copics, added some bling and i was pretty satisfied... can you tell what is paper pieced??? man i had to ask myself why i chose such a hard part to paper piece....

hey and i even got to use it today when i went craft shopping with my mom... yes i went shopping for Copics!! our local Ben Franklin Crafts store now sells Copic sketch, so i went to pick up a few (more).... LOL... i went the other day too!

well, i'm gonna try and attempt to get more crafting done... we'll see who will be nice!! check me out a bit later for an LC posting!! Have a wonderful rest of Sunday and a happy new week!!
