what's a trend you LOVE and/or want to try???

And if anyone says 'stickled pickles" I think I might spit coffee on the screen

I lovvvvvvvvvvvve stick pins!!!!! I'll make and use them on ANYTHING. LO's, cards, minibooks, you name it! I love searching for beads and pearls and crystals to go on them,,,,

so how about you???

I think I need to look around the Gallery, because I've yet to spot em (as in, I must be behind on this particular trend!)

I know Elsie uses & or tends to abuse them in her own fun, unique & qwirky way.

Are we drawing them, purchasing them or making them ourselves?

Either which one, I want to see!

Steam punk intrigues me,,,,not sure exactly how I would APPLY it, but it intrigues me,,,,some of it, I love, and some doesn't catch my eye, but I'd definately like to give it a try sometime!

Embossing with powders. I've bought lots of powders and the heat gun. I've tried it a couple of times and I love the way it looks.

Like sewing (rarely do it because my sewing machine doesn't have a permanent home and it's a pain to get out)
Love my acrylic stamps and embossing powder
Intrigued by steampunk (but nowhere to use it)
I really do love the owls and nature theme products right now
Still in love with bling (can't wait to find the I-rock in stores)

I've been stitching up a storm. originally I said no way would I bother to stitch (think bazzill stitching templates). Now I have tons of them and I hand stitch (no sewing machine). I actually find it very soothing/methodical to sew.

there are techniques and trends that are new to me, but they're not new in general. I want to try dry embossing - those various texture plates and what not look so cool.

I don't know if these trends are new but I love:

stitching; hand-done only, I don't even own a sewing machine
bling; love stickles, glimmer mist, rhinestones
tearing paper
inking; edging or distress inks
border punches; these are my newest obsession, especially the all-around-the-page ones by Martha Stewart. I've been using them a ton
circles; love love love circles ... use my CM 12x12 circle cutter on far too many LOs
flowers; yes, I know, this is one of the ones people hate, but I adore them and have started using some of the tutorials to make my own
embossing; dry w/ Cuttlebug, or heat embossing, more on cards than LOs, but I love the look
oh, and flourishes, flourishes, flourishes
