We stayed home today to get a day of rest before we take the jet skis to the ocean tomorrow. While the kids built forts, painted, and did their own thing I got some work done. I love this time of year. I can wake up an hour later or so so I can stay up later and put some solid hours in my studio. I love the creative push to CHA Summer. This is the time where I live my dream. Where I glue, cut, and scrapbook until my finger nail polish is gone and my fingers are tired. Every day I get new boxes in the mail with the latest, greatest and pre-released products for the upcoming show. I get to say that I am paid to glue things. Someone pinch me and wake me up from this dream. My studio has things all over the floor, my desk and at my feet.
Less than one month to go. I can only share projects when companies approve the sneak-peak so some I will show after CHA. Here is another one for Button’s Galore….I made this from three small canvases and bound them together with Ribbon (from The Ribbon’s House of course!):
I also spent this weekend refreshing myself on the projects that I will be teaching for Helmar (Booth #3029). PLEASE stop by if you are in Chicago. My schedule is packed and I would love to see you. These are the two projects I will be teaching.
The Aussie Bush Tucker Mini Book:
All I need is an Australian accent and I am set. I am working on that as I glue "G’Day Mate"……nope, just does not work. I will just stick with my Michigan accent.
