I’ve had this set from Sweet Stamp Shop setting out in my craft room for a few weeks now just begging me to use it! I purchased it because it reminded me of my childhood days and visiting my grandparents’ home where they had one of these fantastic view finder toys:

The sentiment continues inside and says, “you are a genius!” How’s that for a testosterone booster?! I decided to use a black and white color scheme this time, giving this almost a sketched look. With an engineer husband, this just reminded me of something some guys might appreciate: colorless design. I added some subtle touches just to jazz it up a bit as I am a woman, after all.

I’m off to enjoy yet another beautiful spring day! The sun is shining and it’s supposed to reach the upper 70’s for temperatures! The backyard needs mowing and I’m itching to paint something again.

I’m happy with the paint, so that’s good!
