a neat idea

This is the sweet pillow I bought on Sandy's Etsy shop. I love her art and she has been cranking out these pillows and I want every one of them. Click on and check her out.



Here is the neat idea I promised to tell about. Last week I was in the Big Lots store and in the paint department they had full size wall rollers made with bubble wrap. Wellll...you know how I love making textures with bubble wrap. But these rollers were way too big for my art projects.
Just then the light bulb came on and I had the bright idea of using a lint roller (and who doesn't have a million of those around the house?) So I went home and cut a piece of b-wrap and applied it to the sticky roller...voila! Then my mind took off and I was adding other texture makers like different shelf liners and so on. It's great for changing colors too. Just peel off and add another piece.

Today I get to finish up some projects and then I can play in the studio (yes, Debi...your bag!)

Dang! You need to patent that sucker!
Brilliant!
I have Sandy's other sweater girl pillow! What good taste we have.

I used to do faux finishes, murals and stencilling. These people types would go wild over your invention.

Yes yes yes. Brilliant! I will be getting me one of those lint things. I must be the only person who has none.
And love the new banner.

I agree, you should patent this idea. In the meantime, I am saying thank you, because I will certainly try this tip. I am also digging on your new banner. Take care, Susan

Love the banner! And the pillow! And other pillows and paintings in her etsy shop. And I think your idea is wonderful! I'll finally have a use for the lint thing! It lives a sad life in my car... but will be transferred to my studio today. Thank you!
