So... this day's posts are not in chronological order.... I was so excited about the end of the day, i thought i should share that first. Here we have flat fanny.... she had a big meeting with a licensing agent tonight. It went very well. The bookmarks there are some of her work... she does a series called "Zenspirations"... hmmmm... could that be any more perfect or what?
Here is Flat Fanny with a bunch of her buisness cards. I think that she and I will be making beautiful music toghether; you know what i mean, right?
So, our meeting began at 3pm and ended at 11:15pm... wow! We had alot to talk about. But she held other meetings in between and while i was killing time waiting for her, she had me look through her bag of goodies that came from a company in China that makes products for other companies. Do these pink metal disks look familiar to anyone else? They are MINE! From Scrapyard 329!!! That's fate, that's destiny... that's amazing. So, when Scrapyard 329 went out of biz, they must have sold off all their art/ products and they ended up with some company in China that just took the art and reporduced it to be sold in Wal-Mart - - - and now, it's come full circle back to me! And that, my friends is the circle of life. Wild huh?
And back to 9am... i started out the day with yet another Donna Downey class. A cute little canvas camera bag.
and here is the end result... who want's to make one? It will probably be a class at Ben's ... super fun!
Super duper cute little free form cut flowers from canvas by Claudine... damn, that girl is talented!!!! And you can bet i am stealing this one... who's with me?
Ok, so here are her stamps. The blue represents the foam stamp that gets stamped down first and the black is the clear stamp that get's layered on top. Get it? I ordered them all! And her own line of paint!!!! Love her....
CHeck this out... how cute. The bird and leaves are stamped... the other is just Claudine creativity!
Now onto Hero Arts... LOVE THIS!!! Who wants to make one? You stamp a flower on canvas, cut it out, stuff it, sew it, add a button and a pin back and you are done. Cute, right?
AHHHH and now onto Crafty Secrets. This is a veiw looking down on a layered house stamp from one of the new sets i ordered from them...
this was a little tiny embroidery hoop - like 3" and then stamped and a french knots and a needle and thread left in for looks... cute!
Now we move onto SIZZIX... i know we talked about Tim Holtz new line... this one is called the artist series and yep, i ordered them! Look at the great samples they made with die cuts and texture templates
Who knows the artist ... SUZY BLU??? Well, i bought her line of stamps from UNITY ( my favorite new stamp company) and some other stamps too... really great!
Love these clear acrylic charms that you just put a photo or drawing, stamp or doodle on the back side with diamond glaze and then hang some charms off of it.
Here's the charms... from Darcie's country folks... all these for $6.99. Cool for Christmas gifts, right?
Jillibean Soup... still one of my favorite innovative companies.... here showing a cool new jeweled stick pin
Oh..... look how they used the packaging to create this card. Gotta love that companies are thinking GREEN and reusing the packaging to be crafty. Prima's new packaging is the same... so look at the packaging when you buy your next embellishments... it's a two for one deal!!!!
Oh thank heavens... the devine twine line is coming th Ben Franklin and you don't have to buy a whole full spool of baker's twine to get it. Yippie!!!!!
One of my top pics for the show... the Colorful life. The colors in this paper stack are incredible...what a great artist.
That's the 12x12 album... i know, right?
Tomorrow is the consumers show and then i come home. At midnight. I head to the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco and picking up Norman and family... our french foriegn exchange student from last year.... and then my boy comes home on the 6th from Thailand.... ok, just one quick Kurtis post... just because. And there he is .... resting with a tiger. Really? You had to get in a cage with a tiger. Sure is cute, though. huh.
