Studio Makeover

Mar 21, 2013

Oh my good­ness… yes­ter­day, I start­ed the big switch a roo. I’m mov­ing my stu­dio from one room of our house to the front much larg­er room of our house. The front room has the most amaz­ing light and it lasts all day long. But let me tell ya, I can­not wait to have this task com­plet­ed. When I went to bed last night, I was hop­ing my fairy god­moth­er would show up and fin­ish it all but nope… she must have been busy help­ing some­one else. Although, I pret­ty much have as close to a fairy god­moth­er as I’m going to get. My neigh­bor Jen­nifer is so awe­some.

That HUGE sigh…

Mar 15, 2011

of relief you just heard came from me. I just com­plet­ed my sec­ond book dead­line and let me just say, it was a humdinger, but I have 45 projects com­plet­ed. I’m so glad this one is behind me and every­thing has either been emailed or shipped. I leave for Cincin­nati in a few weeks to pho­to­graph all the step by step pho­tos for each fea­tured tech­nique. It will be a week of pho­tograph­ing dur­ing the day and writ­ing at night but I can final­ly start to see the book com­ing togeth­er and can­not wait for it to hit the shelves.

CHA Day 1…

Jan 29, 2011

What a great day in the Maya Road booth. I taught the art ban­ner make-n-take from 10:00 — 5:30. Every­one was so patient wait­ing in line too… some wait­ed for 1.5 hours. Tomor­row I will be teach­ing how to make the Pleat Flower Pins and Kraft Doily Pins. I will start the make-n-takes at 10:00 and go  until 2:00. Then I will head over to the Fisakars (Booth #1323) doing a card make n take from 2:30 – 4:00. We will be using all kinds of great Fiskars punch­es and pat­terned paper from “The Girls Paperie”. After I fin­ish this make n take I will head back to Maya Road for more make n take fun. Now for some pho­tos… Here are the project win­ners from the Maya Road Bring Your Project To CHA...
