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.
I also have a postal center at my other desk where I address the boxes and mail them out.
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.
