long time no blog!

wow - i can't believe it has been over a week since my last post! i've been writing and creating for the c&t publishing blog and my newsletter, so my poor blog was neglected. :-(

it's a super busy time right now as i prep for the big craft & hobby shows in southern california. i'll have my own booth #758 featuring c&t products at the 2-day consumer show, and then i'm working in the c&t booth #3172 for the next 4 days at the trade show. i'll be doing loads of demos in other booths too, painting and crafting up a storm!

if you are going to either show, please come by and say hello. if you aren't going, i'll do my best to give you the virtual tour! i will be posting daily show updates at the c&t blog with plenty of pics and video...and i'll tweet and facebook some during the shows too.

above is a pic of the yummy batik fabrics i found for my booth curtains, and my dear friend glenna was an absolute peach to sew them up for me! she also made us these adorable name badge holders, and i added an iron-on of my logo.

btw - tonight was my first-ever online radio interview, it was very exciting! tiffany windsor from inspired at home radio interviewed me about c&t's new surface design center. after listening to the recording, i realize i said "cool" way too many times! :-)

one powerful hour

i'm so happy to be the guest designer this week over at my friend caroline's challenge blog, one powerful hour - she just had her baby - congrats!

i posed this challenge to her readers - pick one word that reflects what you want for yourself in 2010. then create an inspiration board with that word. mine is challenge...i really want to challenge my creative side more...learn new techniques, try new materials, hone my skills.

complete project instructions for my inspiration board can be found here. head on over to one powerful hour and join in the fun! and don't forget to check out everyone else's work in the comments section, there is some serious creative fabulousness going on!
