Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week


I have some GREAT tips for you today using the new 1/4" Organza ribbon. In the video I referred to it as 3/8" but it's really only 1/4". I will show you how to make this ribbon any color you need! You can watch the video here: 

If the video doesn't play click HERE to watch it on my blog.


I used my Dapper Denim Stampin' Write Marker for this one:


The Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blend alcohol marker for this bow - you only need to color one side of the ribbon and it bleeds through to the other side. LOVE those Alcohol markers:


The Black Stampin' Write Marker worked for this ribbon. You do have to color both sides when using these markers.


This one was colored with the Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend:

1st day of school
After retiring from the Marine Corps, a former Drill Instructor Sergeant took a job as a high school teacher.  Just before the school year started, he injured his back.  He was required to wear a light plaster cast around the upper part of his body.  Fortunately, the cast fit snugly under his shirt and wasn't noticeable when he wore his suit jacket.
On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school.  The smart- alack punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.
Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk, he looked around the room and made eye contact with each and every student.  A strong breeze through the window made his tie flap.  He picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.
Dead Silence.

The rest of the school year went very smoothly...
