CHA Orlando

Hi Bloggers:

Just a quick note from steamy Orlando, the site of this summer's Craft and Hobby Association trade show. I've taken some great classes from Tim Holtz, Mayrah Johnson and others and have loads of ideas for GREAT technique workshops bubbling in my head. The exhibitors have really done amazing jobs displaying sample projects and new ideas. The Tattered angels booth is gorgeous, and everything has a lovely glimmery sheen!

Ranger Ink has some really fun new products and I've already placed that HUMONGOUS order so be looking for fun new metal embellishment in fall classes. I've found a great new company, Buzz and Bloom, from Australia ( and will be ordering their fab laser cut chipboard today.

Here's a photo of one of Tim's sample projects will replicate in a class the suitcase handle atop the canvas, too cute! You'll be using words that mean something to you so put those thinking caps on!

I had dinner the other night with a friend from HIGH SCHOOL...can you believe that was 30 years ago. Thought you might like to see the snap of the two of us reminiscing and remembering pour horrid fashion faux pas thanks to Stan remembering to bring our Senior year word....YIKES!
