It was almost a stamp-free weekend….Adria was supposed to be in St. Louis for a soccer tournament but the tournie was cancelled due to the heavy rain. So the kids and I headed in the opposite direction and spent Friday at the Wilderness in the Wisconsin Dells. Didn't even pack the stamps, just the suits. We returned home just in time to get our costumes on for trick-or-treating and a party at one of the soccer parents. Adria went as a snowman, Denver as an old man, Ella as the appropriate Energizer Bunny and myself…I ratted and ratted my hair, sprayed it black and went as your favorite train wreck, Amy Winehouse.
If you are familiar with Amy, she's loaded with tattoes. I shopped both Target and Walmart for temporary tattoos to no avail. Slap me silly! Hello, you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and you have shelves full of rubber stamps. Pulled out a few, along with my favorite Amy Winehouse type stamp, From the Crypt and used the Basic Black ink and proceeded to trash my arms and chest. I should have added a few more but I wasn't quite sure how temporary we are talking here. Regardless of Amy's church choice, I needed to go Sunday morning and felt I should be skull-free before going. (they came off quite easily, the black hair spray…not so.)
So the next time you need to hang out at a biker bar and are just looking to blend in, pull out your rubberstamps and tatoo yourself. They work great! So I was the only thing I stamped on this long Teacher's Convention weekend! Ella and Denver are in my facebook album. Click on the left hand side of the blog & become and fan!
