HIMCR #188 - Erasers!

Happy Saturday!

We've been in our new home for a week now .... sort of! We don't furniture or anything!

We brought some of our heavier items, books, cardstock, dies, paper stacks, dishes, but we leave out this morning to head back to California to meet up with the military packers to get the rest. We've painted the bedrooms and the family room. Thankfully the carpet is a brown, not the color I would have chosen perhaps, but we thought from the pictures that it was purple and we were going to rip it up! We've already had the hot water heater blow and the garage flooded with 50 gallons of water and had to rush in boxes to keep the damage down. We had the big kids here so it was all hands on deck and we saved EVERYTHING! My husband's car starter went out while he was running errands and I was at home painting. Thankfully there was a nice man who helped him and he didn't need a tow truck or me! The van battery died which was still under warranty so it was free but that took time which we needed. All in all though we got most the things done we wanted. I still some shelves done and I want to paint the new craft room which right now sadly seems to be the box stacking room. Not my choice! GRRRR! Men, they don't understand that the craft room is like hallowed ground!

We hope you enjoyed the blog hop last week! I know I'm behind on some blogging things! I still have to post last week's winner! So sorry! Please give me a couple of weeks for things to get somewhat settled. But for now we have a fun challenge for you!

HIMCR #188 - Erasers!

It's just basically using erasers dipped in ink to create a background or design or ANYTHING you can think of!

I found this cute technique on Splitcoast Stampers and thought it would be a fun challenge to do here on HIMCR! Here's the link to give you some ideas: Erasers! Don't forget to check out the HIMCR Design Team's blogs for ideas and inspiration too!

We can't wait to see what you come up!



  1. I am amazed that you can even think about crafting in the middle of a move like that. I hope you have some time to take care of you! Interesting challenge this week. I will definitely check out the tutorial. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers as hopefully you will settle in quickly.

  2. so glad you are getting things done. All your loyal followers understand. Would you like us to have a letter writing campaign to explain to DH how important the craft room is? I guess you do need a "staging" room but couldn't you just displace one of the younger children? LOL! Take care and good luck!
