Unusual Uses for Copic Markers

In the last few days I've had to grab my Copics for the most unusual fixes.

1.  Last night I touched up my gray roots but afterwards I noticed that I missed a spot.  So out comes E49 Dark Bark and I touched up the area.  Voila! it's gone.

2.  This morning I noticed that I had a bleach mark on one of my favourite black tops (not from bleach but probably from a lemon).  So out comes 110 Specail Black (I could have used 100 but I grabbed this one first).  I just dabbed a bit on the bleached out spot and Voila!  It's gone.

3.  In my den I have dark espresso stained cork flooring.  It's beautiful but the rollers on the desk chair scrape away at it in spots.  So out comes E27 Africano and E49 Dark Bark (again) and quick touch up fixes it fast.

Do you have any unusual Copic uses you'd like to share? 

If so please leave a comment here - I'd love to read them!

 Until Next Time!

Sitting on the couch and doing some crochet....

I know I should be doing other things but I had a lot of PVRing to catch up on and while I watched I crocheted.

This is what I made last night:

2 soap holders for the shower

I know, I know who uses bar soap anymore? 
Well I just got some nice soaps for Christmas (thanks Dee!) and I want to use them so I made these custom sized soap bags so that I can use them in the shower.  Don't worry I used acrylic yarn so that they will dry and not go moldy!

I also made this cowl scarf

And I started on this infinity scarf

Until Next Time!

making me some wrap bracelets...

While I sit at home and recouperate from my latest surgical adventure I have been keeping myself busy with making some wrap bracelets.

Aren't these cool!

I got the info to make them from HERE

The only changes I made were to lengthen the ball chain length to give me a looser bracelet - I ended up with a 15" inch rather than a 14" bracelet for my 7" sized wrists.

If you make these yourself you might want to measure your wrist first then double it and add 3/4 to 1" to get your finished size.

Until Next Time!

Too much!

Happy New Year! 

I hope you all had a great holiday season - I know I did!  I think I enjoyed it a bit too much!

I don't know about you but I am starting out this year with an extra 10lbs. 

That added to what I wanted to lose from last year has me joining Weight Watchers online. 

If it's good enough for Jennifer Hudson it's good enough for me!

What I really need right now is wardrobe boost - something that makes me feel good and hides my spare tire.

I really like this top from White House Black Market.

Until Next Time!

Ornament Wreath Tip

I know Christmas is over but you might want to pick up some supplies on clearance to make your own ornament wreath for next year.

If you can't find the right size form for your wreath you can make your own with some cheap foam pipe wrap from Home Depot!

Cut it to any size you want and then connect the two ends with duct tape! 

Until Next Time!
