CHA 2009 Sneak Peek!!!!!


Sometimes, I feel so busy- like I am running a great race. It is unfortunate, but I get nowhere in my race. I am just running in circles. Today was the perfect example. I ran from 7 am (Miss H had before school choir practice) until 7:00 pm (Miss H had swim team practice and I needed 2 additional lights from Lowe's for my track lighting). I accomplished many little tasks-Wal-Mart returns, beauty shop, emails, Windex the french doors and table by front door, dishwasher...but my list is still long. I have things I must do tonight, so I feel like I won the race. Blogging is on my list....with out further ado....



For the first time ever, I am showing you a little sneak peak of product premiering at Winter CHA in sunny California.
I hope you get as excited about what you see as I did....
Inkadinkado has over 150 new clear and wooden stamps. Notice the beautiful chandelier.....
Have you seen the technique where you stamp on fabric and then stitch the design? Some of these would be amazing!
They also came out with a clear stamps storage binder. I have been organizing and re-organizing my new studio. This would be perfect. I need about 3 of them for starters. 1) for Halloween, 2) for Christmas, and 3) for Valentines day....then I would need one for letters and another binder for sentiments...oh, my list just keeps growing and growing.
I am happy to say that embroidery has come back in popularity. I like to stitch in the car while I wait for swim team practice or the car pool line. I even stitch on my scrapbook pages. These kits come with a frame, mat, glass, and frame clip. The designs are of nature.
Here are some yummy JOLEE'S Spring stickers. They have glitter, pearls, and soft felt on them. I am dying to see the butterflies in person!

STICKO offers new metallic dimensional stickers! Here are just a few of the 30 new designs.



Here is a must have!!!!! I am a tool girl so this really excites me! How about a punch that folds flat for storage. Think how much easier these would be to store. The edgers look really neat!


Take a peek at these little gems! Can you believe it? EK Sucess has Jolee's Jewels. It has Crystallized Swarovski elements for jewelry making. This product line offers everything for beginning jewelry makers to the experts! Tres Fabulous!!!!!!



Okay, how about a little paper.....
Madeline by Brenda Walton http://www.brendawalton.com/blog/...it looks like Paris in the Spring Time. You must see the grand adhesions that are pleated. I am dying to use them! She just is one of my all time favorite artist!

Jenn Ski http://jennskistudio.blogspot.com/ is an amazing artist. You may have seen her prints or fabric before. She has a very graphic style to her work. Check out this fun and whimsical paper line. It focuses on the alphabet and animals. It would make great alphabet scrapbooks or home decor items. Check out the little boy on the cover of the album...yes, that is my own little Mr. S. Oh, it melts my heart to see him so little.
Happy Trails to YOU until we meet again.....I always need travel paper because as you know I am ready for my next adventure at any moment...These papers work well for a family trip or a jet-set excursion...
Que, Sera, Sera...it makes me think of Doris Day but the paper is an artistic dream. It is layered graphics with intricate details. Each paper could be framed and hung in your studio. It is just that beautiful! Working with it, brings out my creative soul.
I love this color palette. It is refreshing and bright. I can see making an entire album for Miss H or my girlfriends from this line. The extra large titles really caught my attention.
Doesn't is just scream SUMMER! I am ready for a lounge chair, a diet coke, and my camera to capture those fun pool moments. Don't even think about taking my picture at the pool. I would have to drown you.
How fun is this border punch? It is new from Martha Stewart. I can see packaging my Easter treats with these cute punches. I wonder what this punch would look like around a plastic sand bucket for collecting eggs?


I hope you enjoyed the show....
Don't forget to comment...tomorrow I will draw a winner for Artful Blogging!
