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.

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.

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...
