There are a few items that have picked my interest and a few items that I go - hmmn really I should have thought of that! like people are impressed with the quickcutz L - letter press and interesting idea, but having worked in the printing industry and knowing about ink I think this is an interesting idea on an old craft, Letter pressing was what you had done for invitations and announcements. A kind of embossing but a bit in reverse- along with other things like die cutting it is fascinating to me to see these " older " printing techniques become new again.
the slice from making memories was just announced to be able to use drawing tips instead of cutting tips- again making old techniques new again. like the plotters and large scale presses. What will come up again soon? I would like to haqve the slice I think but am unwilling to pay the full retail for it.
How about color? you know my Pantone obsessions- colorstrology and other color topics are so interesting. here comunicating with color

The news reports here are warning pet owners to Pull up mushrooms in their yards. We have had such wet weather that they are growing in the yards and paths. One man lost his doxie to toxic mushrooms, night before last. so I just wanted to be sure we " pulled ours up" that was the recommended removal, they say not to cut or shovel for rish of the spores spreading and more growing.

we have an office next to the Eisenhower Suite and on a clear day you can see pikes peak to the south of us!!
In 1955, an eighth floor suite of rooms served as President Dwight Eisenhower’s office and living quarters for seven weeks while he recuperated from a heart attack suffered while visiting Denver. The suite stood vacant in later years and eventually became an office. The University of Colorado Heath Sciences Center secured much of the Fitzsimons site in 1995 for its relocation from the old Denver campus at East 9th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. The old hospital forms the historic centerpiece of the new medical campus. The Eisenhower Suite, as it came to be known, has been restored as a museum, thanks to a $67,100 SHF grant, a $10,000 donation from Wells Fargo, and matching funds from the University of Colorado. The restored suite, which opened in 2003, features Eisenhower-era details such as nurse-call buttons and glass ashtrays along with a Secret Service sitting room, nurses’ station, and a private dining room.
