Washing acrylic stamped fabric and other

If you recall from this past post of mine, I promised to give an update to washing my acrylic stamped fabric.

Here is a picture of the results.

It didn’t turn out too well.  I think the reason for this is because most of the ink on the fabric ended up being the black speedball ink that remained on my brayer instead of the blue acrylic paint.  If you recall, I didn’t think to clean off my brayer before I rolled the acrylic paint and fixative onto the stamp.

I will try stamping fabric again with a clean brayer and use acrylic paint with fixative and share the results with you.

Other news, I got a nose ring.  It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile, so I thought I’d try it (knowing if I didn’t like it, I can always take it out and let the hole close up).  It’s tiny (which I love) and I’m really glad I did it.  I enjoyed Donna Downey’s post about her nose ring experience.  I’m taking Vitamin E and I’m surprised how well and how quickly the piercing is healing in only 4 days.

I got from a friend (as an early Christmas present) an Aero Garden.  I was skeptical about them before, but I’m really enjoying it.  I’m growing herbs as my first plant project.

I’ve been shocked at how quickly they’re growing.  I’ve had the seed pods planted for 3 days and am already seeing little plants growing.

I’m also enjoying drinking a cup of tea on this Memorial Day afternoon.  I hope you get to enjoy the holiday.  Tonight will be pizza, knitting, and watching a movie with my husband, yeah!



  1. love the nose ring! what did they say at work??

  2. I hope you are still enjoying your garden.

    There are some exciting new developments over at Aerogarden.

    Stop by to learn what’s going on!
