**Pay it Forward**

If there is any kindness I can show, any good thing I can do to any fellow human being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.

William Penn

Gratitude. Pure and Simple.


It with humbleness and honor that we dedicate the month of November to helping the Anne Carlsen Center - which exists to make the world a more inclusive place where independence is a gift to all.

November 01 – November 30th 2012 all completed projects that are uploaded into our gallery; we will donate $1.00 to a maximum of $1,000.00.

Every purchased made from the store from November 01- November 30th 2012, Flying Unicorn will donate 5% to THE ANNE CARLSEN CENTER

You can donate directly on their website : CLICK HERE

(if you donate directly - please email me the amount at - your name will remain anonymous - but we would like to beat our direct donation total of last year of $220.00)

Together, we will make a difference.

The Anne Carlsen Center is dedicated to “Nurturing abilities. Changing Lives."

Dr. Anne Carlsen, our namesake and former administrator, believed in the worth of every individual. Throughout her life she exemplified strength and nurturing, advocating for individuals with disabilities, and teaching them how to advocate for themselves, while creating a life of independence.

The Anne Carlsen Center offers a rich tradition of educational, residential, therapeutic, evaluation, and community-based services. Our individualized services include care for individuals — and families — of all ages with cerebral palsy; orthopedic, vision and hearing disabilities; autism, pervasive, and other behavior disorders; and other medical acuities.

The Center’s education program provides students with a safe, secure and loving atmosphere in which they can learn and grow. The Center is approved and accredited through the ND Dept of Public Instruction as a K-12 school.

The Student Council consists of a team of Anne Carlsen students dedicated to helping their fellow peers, classmates and friends. Student Council fund raises throughout the year to help students pay for necessities such as clothing, shoes, winter gear, school supplies or other needs they may not have the funds to cover for themselves. Fundraising also provides a yearbook at no cost to each and every student at the Anne Carlsen Center.

**Spooky Creations** Flying Unicorn

 Hello everyone! Hope everyone is doing great today! I have a few spooky projects to share with you. I had a blast playing with Pinkpaislee "Phatom" collection. I used it on all projects that I am about to show. We currently have a sale going on for 20% off all Halloween products in the Flying Unicorn store. Hows that for Spooky savings?!  Hope you all get a chance to get you hand on this paper collection, I loved playing with it!! Here we go!

 First up I used the PP on my OTP project from this months KOM! Painted all my letters black (chalk paint in the KOM) and added some Petaloo, Manor House blooms, stamps and a few Spooky creatures to create my Spooky greeting!

Here are a couple of close ups..

 Next spooky project is my Boo Bird house that I created for last months MMU. Click on the MMU to take you to the instructions on how to build your own spooky box! Its a treat box that holds yummy treats for that special Ghoul or Booy in your life! LOL

Really Loved this PP!!

 Lastly a LO too!
 More Petaloo and Manor House flowers. A few DA pieces and that spooky tree was made from a FX chippy piece. I also used some of the new Stampendous Mica flakes to make the leaves on the tree.  Mists a pleanty all over this LO! LOL These are all also available in the Flying Unicorn store. I hope you enjoyed and have a wonderful day!

KOM Oct and a Tute **Flying Unicorn**

Hello everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to our Canada friends and to the US Happy Columbus Day!!

I sure do hope that you all got one of these kits! It is loaded with goodies!! A mask, gears, cogs, amazing pp, flowers and soooo much more! The things I wanna focus on today that is in this kit is the amazing Prima PP and the gears and cogs in the kit! I also have a tute to share that I figured out while I was playing with these things! First of all let me show you my LO's and close ups then the tute!

On this first piece I did add a long time hoarded piece of Dusty Attic that I have had forever! I guess just waiting for this Kit!! Here is the LO..
This is of my DH! He truly is my Mr. Fix-it!! Fixes everything! And built us a deck for our pool!! On the main pic he has sheet rock dust on his eye! LOL I had to use that pic with these papers from Prima "Craftsman Collection"!! It was a perfect match! Here are some close ups!
Loved playing with all the gears in this kit! Prima canvas ones, DA ones and also some acrylic ones from Basically Bare!! Next close up!
On the acrylic piece I stamped and used some alcohol ink to color! Super super fun things to do! The edges of each piece was done with the cool chalks that came in the kit too! I haven't used chalk in a long time! This chalk was like butter! It is called Pan Pastel and it is also sold in many other colors in the Flying Unicorn store! These are really worth checking out if you like using chalk! I would say the best I have ever used! Ok Next LO!!

This is my DS and he is a chip off the block from his DD! Super smart funny and sweet! To me he is brilliant! So that is what I titled it! LOL Some more of the Prima "Craftsman Collection" here along with more gears and letters! The white area is a mask that came in the kit that I felt looked like a data stream on this LO! He love computers and gaming so it just was perfect! I have said perfect a lot in this post, but ya gotta trust me. This kit is so loaded with many many fun things to do try and make!! Here are some close ups of this LO!
Here is some more cogs and gears. One last close up then the tute!
Used the acrylic pieces here too! Ok now for that tute!!

Thought this was pretty cool and had to share! I used the new embossing enamel from Stampendous that is also sold in the Flying Unicorn store in many many colors! This stuff is way COOOL!! Well hope you enjoyed! Hugs till next time!
