I am headed to CHA today in Chicago. It is something that I always look forward to. I wish EVERY crafter could go and see the products in real life. I am debuting a brand new booth at this show. It has been a lot of work to design a new booth, new collections and balance a very active family the past few months. I love it though and I hope it shows by the lines that I produce. Everyone is asking... Will I be at Mall of America and teach at Scrapfest? YES, YES, and YES. I am teaching THREE WORKSHOPS with my new collections- Tell Your Story, Christmas Cottage and Vintage Finds. I know sign ups are August 1st and the workshops sell out FAST! Don't hesitate to sign up if you are going.
I will be posting from CHA so I hope you will check each day for our updates. I am teaching TONIGHT at Creative Cuts and Crafts.... so excited!

I literally go straight from the airport to teach. I am teaching TWO workshops there. The first one sold out so fast and so I added another workshop. SOLD OUT!!!!! I am so thankful and humbled by the support. The store is fabulous and I am thrilled to be asked to come teach again this year.
TODAY I am debuting my THIRD collection- VINTAGE FINDS. I am simply in LOVE with this beautiful line. I love that it is Vintage but still very me. Timeless and sophisticated is what I was going for. I wanted a line that expressed family and gratitude and could be a line used for any theme: FALL, GRATITUDE, HALLOWEEN, FAMILY, etc. Well, basically anything!
It is a collection that expressed being POSITIVE and celebrating LIFE! I am truly thrilled with how the entire collection came out.
Here are the 9 double sided papers in the collection- 18 patterns.
I also have a 6x6 paper pad for the collection.
BRADS...BRADS... and loving the BRADS!
More faceted gems and pearls...
