Hello, my crafty friends and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper! It makes me smile knowing that even with your crazy, busy schedule that you’ve found some time to be creative.  So sit back, relax, and enjoy a little creative therapy – you deserve it!

Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial by Irina Astapovskaya

Mixed media is an art form in which more than one medium has been employed and can be used on just about any project from scrapbooking and card making to home decor projects and art journals. Whether you’re a mixed media queen or you are just starting out, you are going to love the Art Anthology blog. They have an amazing design team that is sure to keep you inspired as you explore the creative world of mixed media.

Discover a wide range of mixed media products on the Art Anthology siteClick here and I will be happy to escort you over so you can check out all the must-have products. I know you will have fun creating your own unique pieces.

Mail Art By Kristina Werner

Are you ready to take your card making to the next level? I know you’re an amazing paper crafter, so how cool will it be to mail one of your handmade cards in such a gorgeous envelope as this one? I was so inspired by Kristina’s Mail Art that I knew I had to share the love. I can’t think of a better way to enhance the experience of receiving one of your handmade cards in the mail.

It’s time to break out your favorite stamps and wow your family and friends with your new found talent. Who isn’t going to be blown away when they discover this piece of art in their mailbox? It’s so stinkin’ adorable, it just makes you smile! I’d like to send out a virtual hug to Kristina for being such a constant inspiration to her fellow paper crafters. Be sure to stop by her blog anytime you’re in need of some serious inspiration.

Count Your Blessings Index Cards By Patter Cross

What a great project to start off the New Year. I’m a firm believer that positive thoughts generate positive feelings, so why not record those positive feelings through your art? This heartfelt project designed by Patter Cross has truly inspired me to start paying a bit more attention to the many blessing in my life. We’re all passionate about scrapbooking our journey through life, so why not include those positive thoughts and prayers as well?

I hope you’ve been inspired by Patter’s enthusiasm, which is to create one card for each day of the new year.  But not to worry if you don’t hit the mark of  365 cards – there are no rules, just have fun with your art and enjoy jotting down those little things that make you smile. 😉 I highly recommend stopping by Patter’s blog Triple The Scraps – she has some great tips and techniques to share. One of my favorite tips is to create several cards at a sitting and have them ready when you want to record your next heartfelt moment.

Chicken Lo Mein by 

Many of you know that Chinese food is my absolute favorite. I seriously could eat it 7 days a week. Growing up In New York we were a bit spoiled because all you have to do is pick up the phone and they will deliver it to your front door – but not so much in sunny California. Well, not to worry, with a little help from our friend Joanna you can make your own amazing Lo Mein without ever leaving the house.

This chicken lo mein recipe is surprisingly easy to make at home, and it actually tastes a lot better than what you can get at most takeout restaurants. Another bonus about Lo Mein is that you can easily customize the recipe to include your family favorites, you can even go meatless if you prefer. Click here and I’ll take you over to Jo Cooks blog so you can print out the recipe. While you’re visiting be sure to check out Jo’s book “30-minute one pot meals cookbook”.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
