Where in the world have I disappeared to since New Year's?  Things have been a whirlwind of busy!  Well, I am ok and knee deep in my studio preparing for our biggest trade show of the year for us….CHA Winter 2012.  There are flyers to print, orders forms to copy, and best of all over 75 class kits to assemble for my SOLD OUT WORKSHOP!

My desk are budging from products donated by co-sponsors of my workshop:

  • FaberCastell
  • Buttons Galore & More
  • DecoArt
  • BasicGrey
  • Maya Road
  • Marvy Uchida
  • Westcott
  • Bazzill Basics
  • May Arts!

I could not feel more blessed and lucky to be working with so many great companies.  The Helmar GLUE IS GONNA BE FLYING!  I have had quite a few emails bribing me to get people in since it is sold out and I am sorry to say you have to contact CHA…….They do have a Wait List though so make sure to get on that!  I am beyond excited!

Also for those who saw my post yes and sent good thoughts (thank you!), I am still waiting for the darn pathology report for the biopsy to come in and give me the free and clear so keep those fingers crossed.  Stitches come out this week and I feel much better.  Life is slowly getting back to normal and my parents are here to help with all the business of the kiddos!  Three sports is enough to remind them how thankful they are that their kids are grown and moved out.  On the flip side they could be back in Michigan freezing their rears off while it is 85 and sunny here!  I guess there is a price for the sun and that is playing taxi to three grandchildren 🙂


"Keep your life like a beautiful rose…a rose started as a bud, and slowly it opens up…like a rose, don't try and rush things in your life, just let nature/God take it slowly. If you rush things it would be like using your fingers to pull at the petals to open it quicker. Be patient and your life will become beautiful like a rose" ~Unknown
