We hd such a fabulous time at the Back to Back Retreat. Just a few images from the 3 day event
Hope you can join us next year at the next retreat.
Here is Anaheim and there is inspiration everywhere, I thought I would share just a couple of images from the show with you
Managed to get a couple of hours off and met up with another store owner from Seattle and we decided to have dinner at downtown Disney
Graphic 45 – their booth is always fabulous
Love this piece by Jim Hankins
Ranger Designer Challenge
The fountains at night just outside the convention center
The Prima booth was awesome
and I loved this display by Floracraft
It is that time of the year again when I head to the Winter Trade show to buy products for the store. Exhausting times but oh so good to see my colleagues and get inspired by all the art goodness around me. This year the show is being held in Anaheim, California
This is the week from my planner

This white stuff is snow!
It seems my intentions are great for this blog but, my execution leaves much to be desired.
I have been trying to get more organized about this site so that when I have the ideas for the blog I am actually in a place where I can write them down and get them done.
Since I have been gone I have taught on a cruise ship headed to Alaska. That was at the end of July and it was just this past friday that I was able to get my photos off my camera
I have designed and had manufactured (and SOLD OUT in one week, yeah me!) a line of stamps for planners and a set for Art Journaling. If you would like to see what they look like please click here for the online store:
How Does She Do It? – this is the stamp set that is helping me get more organized
PS-107 – this stamp set is for people attending school or the parents
Ready Set Go – to help me with planning my next working vacation
and this is the set I designed for Art Journaling – Imperfection
They are BACK IN STOCK
This is a sample of the Art Journal Set which I have used just for fun.
Will try and post more images as I get them photographed. . . . and based on my track record it might be a while, so no one hold their breath!
This is a quick and easy project to do but, oh so cute
First I diecut a strip of tickets from cardstock and then I stamped all over them with mini stamps and words using Jet Black Archival Ink
I added some color using distress inks and an ink blending tool
I inked th eedges of the ticket strips with JJet Black Archival and the tore a strip of muslin just slightly bigger than my ticket strip. I glued the tickets down to the muslin strip
Next I dyed a mini wooden spool with Vintage Photo Distress Stain and added a stamped bobbin image to the top. I glued the first part of the strip to the bobbin and then rolled everything up. I secured it with a decorative pin.
Small but cute project that took about 3 minutes to make.
