In the latest issue of Scrapbooks Etc. magazine, I discovered a new gadget I'm very much interested in. It's an Eye-fi wireless memory card where it has built-in wi-fi that connects to your home network. And it has the ability to transmit photos from camera to computer and/or favorite photo website (it is secure and private) directly from the memory card without a card reader.
I'm anxious to give this memory card a try.
As for carousels, I'm referring to two types. One is a vintage rubber stamp carousel. The type you'd see in a bank back in the 1950-60's. After taking a class with Tim Holtz at CKU in '06, I learned how you could take an Alcohol Ink Applicator, replace the cotton with a piece of Cut 'n Dry foam to create a blending tool using his Distress Inks. So neat.
He now has a version of this available on the market where you no longer have to make it yourself.
Having a blending tool for each color is ideally the way to do this if you're going to blend your Distress Inks on your projects. So Tim showed us his vintage rubber stamp carousel. Very clever. eBay was calling my name and this is what I found and purchased:
For a little character for your space, it's a fabulous organizing piece.
The other type of carousel I'd like to share is one intended for kitchen utensils. I've had one for my ink pens and various tools for some time now, which I altered. Then, last year, I learned Pampered Chef introduced the same piece in black.
You don't have to be a banker or a cook to enjoy these great organization tools. There's a purpose and re-purpose to everything, I'd say. If you have a story to share about a unique item you've re-purposed, I sure would love to hear about it.
Have a great Wednesday!
