A Southwest Greeting to Everyone

It's Jean here today to chat about an Arizona Christmas.
We do not get snow in Phoenix generally but there have been some days that flurries blew around a bit, FRONT PAGE NEWS.                                                                    

Embossing Tip from a friend, use coffee filters to pour your powder and then replace in the bottle.  This prevents the static and sticking.

Arizona is an amazing state with diversity of people and weather.   The mix of cultures we have here makes for interesting seasonal events.   We have peach festivals in the high elevation southern farms, chili festivals in warmer areas, and many award-winning wineries around the state.   You can snow skiing and within 2 hours be floating in the warm, sunny pool in your yard.

KaiserCraft paper pads are wonderful, each one contains die cuts, I used one die cut applied with foam mounts on the front of the card.   I wrote in my memory - SNOW.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
