Creative Compass by Stacey Caron

Posted by Stacey Caron on

Where in the world is Stacey....

Many of the Spellbinders fans and followers have asked what I have been up to or what interesting places have I visited during the summer so for this week's post I've decided to share one of my bucket list trips with all of you!

As we are all aware life is short, so why not take some time to create a list of special things you would like to do or places you would like to see and experience before the pearly gates are standing before you? I actually took the time in May and did that very thing.

My husband Jeff rides motorcycles and dirt bikes and has done so his entire life. I on the other hand consider myself a great "passenger". One of our bucket list trips as a couple has always been to go to the largest bike rally in the world, Sturgis South Dakota.

I cannot tell you how many years while building Spellbinders, we put off that trip! Well, this year we finally went and it was fascinating and lots of fun. Seeing and experiencing the sheer number of bikes and people that descend on that small South Dakota town was nothing short of astonishing.

One of the coolest things we did was take the back roads and routes to Sturgis rather than the highways which allowed us to see the true beauty of Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado and finally South Dakota.

Lastly, Mount Rushmore, was truly a few highlights of the trip! Seeing Mount Rushmore at sunset was particularly special. After the sun goes down they light up the monument and then honor our current military personnel and veterans. it was very touching & beautiful and something I hope you all have the opportunity to experience some day.

You may not know this, but my Big Fabric stamp was created from a photograph of a wonderful piece of vintage fabric with handmade lace along the edge. I wanted to find a way to add some added texture to the stamped image for a background, so I turned to embossing powder. I [...]
