this is an original handwash dispenser i bought from rustans. i was not so adamant to throw it away so i thought of altering it instead.

handwash dispenser
twill ribbon (7 gypsies)
prima flowers
faux candle wax
round tags
distress ink ( denim)
stickles ( blue)
modge podge


1. wash dispenser container well and clean.
2. use alcohol ink directly on the plastic container.
3. attach twill ribbon on the lower portion.
4. before attaching flower, distress it with distress ink.
5. attach flower and faux candle wax embellishment.
6. make 2 holes on each side of the cover using crop a dile.
7. attach ribbon with round tag for support.
8. use alcohol ink ( one color only) for the transparent cover.
9. use stickles on the mouth of the dispenser.
10. modge podge the entire plastic dispenser and flower.
11. its now ready for your paintbrushes.

they are good not only on metals but on plastics as well. i have lots and lots of dispensers, do you?

scrappinkids coaster swap

wati from singapore had this fun idea of swapping ornaments for christmas. so when i dropped by their scrappinkids blogsite, i joined the crowd.

this christmas, we would each have a swapping partner who will alter a coaster with the partner's child initial. then we mail them by december 5th in time to recieve those coasters by christmas. isnt that cool??

i received my blank coaster today via snail mail ( good thing the post did not had a liking for it) and i will alter it with my partner's child initial.

so exciting!!!

thanks wati and the other designers for coming up with something like this!

i will post the finished product soon. im so excited to receive mine too.

Put your character in the subject line and forward to your friends and back to the person that sent this to you.

Very interesting to see ‘who’ your friends are!

(10-16 points) You are Garfield :
You are very comfortable, easy going, and you definitely know how to
have fun but sometimes you take it to an extreme. You always know what
you are doing and you are always in control of your life. Others may
not see things as you do, but that doesn’t mean that you always have to do what is right. Try to remember, your happy spirit may hurt you or others.

(17-23 points) You are Snoopy:
You are fun, you are very cool and popular. You always know what’s i n
and you are never are out of style You are good at knowing how to
satisfy everyone else. You have probably disappeared for a few days
more than once but you always come home with the family values that you learned Being married and having children are important to you, but
only after you have had your share of fun times

(24-28 points) You are Elmo:
You have lots of friends and you are also popular, always willing to
give advice and help out a person in need. You are very optimistic and
you always see the bright side of things. Some good advice: try not to
be too much of a dreamer. Dreaming too big could cause many conflicts in
your life.

(29-35 points) You are Sponge Bob Square Pants:
You are the classic person that everyone loves. You are the best friend
that anyone could ever have and never wants to lose. You never cause
harm to anyone and they would never not understand your feelings. Life
is a journey, it’s funny and calm for the most part. Stay away from
traitors and jealous people, and you will be stress free.

(36-43 points) You are Charlie Brown:
You are tender, you fall in love quickly but you are also very serious
about all relationships. You are a family person. You call your Mom
every Sunday. You have many friends and may occasionally forget a few
Birthdays. Don’t let your passion confuse you with reality.

(44-50 points) You are Dexter:
You are smart and definitely a thinker… Every situation is fronted
with a plan. You have a brilliant mind. You demonstrate very strong
family principles. You maintain a stable routine but never ignore a bad
situation when it comes. Try to do less over thinking every once in a
while to spice things up a bit with spontaneity!

Now don’t spoil it! Have some Fun!!

hambly entries

these are the hambly entries i submitted for visual creations

and Mystic was chosen as the first placer!!!

as quoted by Allison Kreft of Hambly Screen prints:

Great composition. I also like how she used little pieces of Hambly layered. The technique she also used for the journaling is really cool ( making lines out of thick glue or that thick paint?). I haven't seen that before." - Allison Kreft

By The Well is another entry of mine.. i just admire myself for putting those rub-on birds as reflections. lolz.
