Distressed about my inks

I was working with my Distress Inks today.
I love these inks.
I usually use make up sponges to apply it. Even though I do have a couple of the distress tools, it just seems easier for me to grab a wedged sponge, then to attach the foam to the distress tool.
But I have an organizational idea I am going to work on during the weekend.
So I will share that then.
In the mean time, check out the pretty colours :)
Does it bother you that the one foam pad isn't straight. It was straight when I took the photo, I swear it was....unless hubby was teasing me again and moved it.

I store my inks on my peg board on an shelf. So they are stacked up and I can't see the tops of the ink pads.
So to help me get the correct colour I am looking for I put the names on the side fronts with my label maker, and ink the colour on the heart shape.
Can you tell which inks I use the most, or the ones that are new, lol.
I bought all these foam pads recently. Like I said I usually use the make up sponges.

I just opened one of my new inks today and the ink pad wasn't fully attached to the container.
I was bummed :(
I contacted Oozak (the place that I purchased the ink from) and before they replied to my email, they had another one on the way to me :)
Awesome customer service :)

Onto My Day:
I kind of vegged today.
I am getting a cold, my throat is sore and my eyes are burning :(
But I did work on my He-Art Challenge page. It was a bit of a tough theme for me this week.

I think I am going to soak in a nice hot tub, light a candle and read a bit of my book "Catching Fire".

Hope you all had a creative Wednesday.
Wishing all my American Friends a very nice Thanksgiving :)
Hope you enjoyed your day with your family and friends, and ate a lot of turkey and fixin's :)

  1. You are getting very organized with all your distress inks. Glad they are replacing the one that wasn't put together quite right.
    One little tip--the velcro on the distress tool--get Wayne to use his heavy stapler and staple it on good. Then it won't come off when you are changing colours often . Saves a lot of grief in the long haul.

  2. That's a lot of inks. That's great that they have another one coming to you. It's so nice to receive good customer service. Enjoy you book!

  3. That is great customer service!!
    I labeled my distress inks as well.
    Makes it so much easier.
    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and wake up feeling better ;)

  4. WOW, you sure have a lot of Distress Inks. I think I have about 7 and it looks like your fav is the same as mine. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  5. oh i love the distress inks!-- i labeled mine as well because i stack them like you!

    have a wonderful day

  6. Again, I can't seem to figure these distress inks out. I must be doing it wrong :) I love how you have all of your inks labeled. So organized! I hope you're feeling better...

  7. Ooh, my face is pressed up to the screen right now! I love all the colors you have! Its cool that Oozak is sending you a new one too! Hope you feel better soon!

  8. So many beautiful ink colors! Sounds like a wonderful way to relax and recuperate.

  9. You have way to much have an addiction - ........oh yeah... we had that conversation today already! LOL....I have will have to get by one day to sample/ try out your addiction products!....

  10. Ooo, good organizing! I am behind on my reading, have been getting candles poured for a local craft sale this weekend!

  11. A Hunger Games fan too? We could be sisters from another mother, lol. Can't wait for the movies!

  12. Nice job, love how you've done all the labels! I feel some inspiration happening--something to do very day :)


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
