Merry Almost Christmas! New blog feature and some great videos

So in just a few days the madness will be over (for some of us anyway).  The gifts will be opened, the house destroyed, the food will be eaten with leftovers to share and we will all breathe a sigh a relief, until next year that is.

Hopefully those of you who live in the eastern part of the US are digging out from all that snow!  I can't even begin to imagine what it feels like to have to deal with weather like that.  

I have just added a new search feature to the blog.  You will find the blog search on the left side of the blog, right below the rss sign up (the third item down).  Type in what you want, for instance if you type "copics" you will get a list of my blog posts with copics, and at the top of the search is a link that says "Linked from here."  If you click on "linked from here" you will get a listing of all the sites I have linked to that have something to do with copics!  I think it is a really neat feature and should help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Since you can now search the blog I have removed all of the labels (which were very long and not all that easy to search).  I hope you like this new feature!

Today I wanted to share with you some absolutely wonderful videos, sit back, grab some coffee, tea or hot chocolate and watch away:

This first video had me going WOW!  A GREAT technique to get amazing results, and so easy!  Here you go:

And I LOVE how great this water color technique looks, imagine how nice an effect you can get using a heart image for Valentine's Day:

This is so cool!  I need to get some more colors of the UTEE bright to try this technique!  And with Valentine's Day coming up think about the great hearts you could make for your cards and scrapbook pages!


And here is one from Jennifer McGuire who is so very talented!  She has a new video up and wait till you see how she does a banner for her card, so simple yet adds a dimension to your projects you can' believe:

That's it for today!  I wish for you and yours a healthy, safe and wonderful Christmas.

And it would make my day to read some of your comments, sort of like a Christmas present from you all : )
