Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!
I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, drawing, doodling and more. I also like to create digital stamps and sometimes offer vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom and a grandmother of 8 adorable grandkids whom I love to make things for.

Leonid Afremov: pallette knife techniques
May 30, 2016
Canada has no lemon laws and will only deal with issues like this through an Arbitration Board. We have a lawyer who has asked to take on the case and believes it could be a class action law suit. We are considering that. So if you've bought a new Honda, and especially if your VIN# begins with a 3 (identifying it as made in Mexico), and you are having problems with it, feel free to private message me with your name.
Thanks for taking the time to read this long post. I will link the FACEBOOK post again:

My brother in law had a major heart attack without warning and a major seizure just a couple of weeks ago. They had to jump him 4 different times; he was without oxygen about 10 minutes total, but amazingly he is making a 100% recovery. This, I believe, has come through the many prayers offered up for him. He is only 50 years old. My brother in law lives in the closest proximity to our parents and was taking care of all their needs. However, with him in hospital and out of commission for a while, my husband and I drove about seven hours (incl. the Ferry) and cleaned out their place in a few days time. We were not the only ones, but it was a huge job just the same. The house now has to be sold. We have made several trips back and forth in the last while.

Do you want to play?
I think it's a fun idea.
You aren't required to do it every day, but if you want to, you are challenged to do it for 60 days beginning this June 2016.
Anyway, that's it for today! I hope you have a nice week!

The left one is Kai's, and the right one is Lauryn's. The chicken is mine. His name is Peanut. Everyone should have a chicken of their own. Just sayin'

I recently saw some cards on Pinterest, made with stamps and charcoal pencils. My mother, who was very creative, used to employ charcoal as a medium. She made up a picture of me wearing a ballet outfit (when I was 3) with a 2 x 2 photo as her guide. She also did some other canvases in charcoal, and also in oils, but I particularly loved to watch her working in charcoal.
I thought it would be fun to try this, just because it reminds me of my mom. It's nowhere near the calibre she did, but I enjoyed the process.
