Once I remembered I had them,I knew where the box of foam stamps were stowed. It required a step ladder and a bit of stretching on my part to wrangle it down from the shelf. After dusting the box off, I began examining the contents. I bought most of the foam stamps almost a decade ago. Many are from a dollar store while a few were found when I was thrifting. Some had never been used.

The class consisted of small chunks which made it easy for me to complete. I didn't have all of the supplies on hand, but I now have an idea of which techniques I may want to stock supplies for.

It's been unseasonably warm here in the islands. Here we are entering January and still having to use our AC. I felt that the snowflake stamps and themed winter paper would be a nice addition to this particular weather story. I crossed out winter words and added my own warm weather words to the sticker phrases. The deep red and black paper also help add a touch of heat back to this winter theme layout.
I am looking forward to using more of my supplies this year. I am also hoping Michelle has a few more ideas for me. I have added her new Mixed Media class series to our homeschool curriculum this term. Creating art alongside my son is a wonderful way for us to spend time together and gives us an educational, but well needed break from the regular routine of math and language arts.
