Quick Tip - How to keep lids from sticking


Here's a trick I came up with after battling one too many stuck lids.

Put a piece of wax paper between the lid and the bottle. The lid still screws on without problem and the wax paper keeps a barrier between the contents and the threads. No more sticking. Hooray!

Because there aren't enough cat pictures on the internet...

...I present two of mine.

This is Tasha, the Grande Dame of the Luna house. She somehow both rules the roost and is petrified of the two youngest cats.

She's weird. (This is what I like to call her "crazy face." She wears it often.)

And she's kind of old. Check out her white hair. She's got the most around her mouth and on her feet, but it's scattered throughout her fur.

And this is Kaylee, our youngest kitty. Well, she has a twin brother, I just assume she's younger than he is - I have no idea.

She's adorable and sweet.

But she'll turn on you like THAT. Kidding.

Mostly she's just cute... and sleepy.

Easy Art Journal Background – Use Your Table Paper!


Here's a really easy way to create an "instant" background in your art journal - if you use paper to protect your work surface, that is. If you use a fancy wipeable one, you're on your own. ;)

I love how my paper looks after it's been thoroughly used. I hate to throw away such deliciousness, so I cut away the good parts and keep them handy for future use. One of the quickest and easiest things to do is use them as your ready-to-go art journal background.


Slap it into your book with some gel medium under and on top and BAM! You're good to go.


I didn't add anything to this background, just used it as is and added more paint on top for the face and used a Sharpie paint pen (extra fine) for the journaling.

I love how it turned out. Try it some time. It's a great way to get a jump start on your art journal page.
