Hippity Hop Easter Workshop…

Mar 16, 2009

My “Hip­pi­ty Hop East­er Work­shop” is ready. I have had so many of you email ask­ing if I was going to do an East­er work­shop and hon­est­ly I did­n’t think I would have the time to put one togeth­er, but I decid­ed to do a mini work­shop. The cost for this mini work­shop is $9.95. This work­shop includes tuto­ri­als to recre­ate 3 adorable projects and 4 beau­ti­ful­ly detailed cards. I will have tem­plates avail­able for down­load to help recre­ate the cards. As always, each project and card tuto­r­i­al includes col­or pho­tos and step-by-step instruc­tions. I will post a project to the East­er Work­shop every oth­er day start­ing March 21st and leave the work­shop open until April 18th.  You can bet there will be a few Maya Road give­aways for those lucky peo­ple select­ed from...

Ever wonder how I work…

Mar 12, 2009

well I work best in small tight areas as you can see from this pho­to. This work­space is about 10 x 6 and I mean inch­es not feet. I made a project today in this tee­ny tiny space. Tomor­row I hope to work in at least a 12 x 12 inch space. To the right of this tight lit­tle space is this big mess but you can see some of my favorite embell­ish­ments and accents for projects… Stick­les, Pearls, Scal­lop Ric Rac, Fiskars Tools, Cream Embroi­dery Floss, Tim Holtz Dis­tress­ing Tool (seri­ous­ly the best out there), Plas­tic Spoon for Glit­ter­ing, Aleene’s Paper Glaze, Col­lage Pauge, Old Book Page etc. Wish I could show you the project I made using these items… I guess you will have to wait until Oh mid Feb­ru­ary of next...

Some explaining to do…

Mar 5, 2009

Right now if there were a con­test for the worst blog­ger I would win hands down. But I real­ly do have good rea­sons… The entire week of Feb. 16th I was swamped with book projects and last minute details for my upcom­ing pho­to shoot in Cincin­nati, OH.  So that week was a total blur of cre­ative fren­zi­ness. Feb. 22nd I flew to Cincin­nati to work with Chris­tine Polom­sky the pho­tog­ra­ph­er for F & W Pub­li­ca­tions. Talk about a won­der­ful expe­ri­ence. If you have a book idea I 100% rec­om­mend you send a pro­pos­al to this com­pa­ny. Every­one I came in con­tact with was won­der­ful and on top of every last detail. Which you all know­ing how detail ori­ent­ed I am made me so hap­py. Feb. 23rd I spent all day in the stu­dio pho­tograph­ing...
