Here is the link to our Party Cone and Party Hat Pattern, if you didn't get it before.

We are leaving for our biggest retail show of the year tonight; the Great American Scrapbook Convention and I want to share some photos of our two Make & Takes which will be held Thursday and Friday from 2:30pm – 2:50pm.

If you CAN’T make it to the Make & Takes, designer Vicki Chrisman has plenty of Clear Art Stamps and Heartwarming Images you can play with at our Booth! Here is the link to the show info.

For the free make & takes at the on site Pavilion at the GAS Show in Texas, I designed some quick cards that combine images from our Heartwarming Vintage Collection but there is also space inside where you will hand stamp your own choice of sentiments from our Coffee & Tea Clear Art Stamps set on Thurs or our Bird Lovers Clear Art Stamps set on Friday from 2:30 to 2:50. Here are the samples

The images above are from our Girlfriends Images & Journal Booklet and the card (1 of 3 other samples) is from our Birds & Botanical Booklet.

Here's a photo from our last show of Theresa Unrau who was demonstrating at the Puyallup Stamp & Paper Arts Expo in WA. We had a great time at this show and really enjoyed meeting everyone!

I took this photo just before the doors opened at the Portland Stamp & Paper Arts Festival in April. This was our first time doing this show and it was wonderful! I LOVE Portland and the people there!
Also, I promised to show you samples of my office make over and I’m so embarrassed about this - but I promised, so here is the BAD BEFORE SHOT. The most silly thing about this is my positive thinking sign ‘Everything is Perfect’ – far from it, but this looks really bad as it was in the middle of the move with drawers pulled out and stuff everywhere. Our middle daughter Holly moved out and saved my life from ‘clutter hell’! I moved the old storage cupboards into her room and plan to sell all this ASAP! I need to stop buying old stuff!

Now that was really bad, but this is really great!
I am now in office heaven and it feels so much better! I pinned up a photo of this furniture as my dream office and 2 weeks later I walked into a liquidation store and found it all marked down 75% off!

Yes, I still need to decorate but for now it just feels good to breathe!
Thank you to everyone who wrote and called with thyroid advise. I feel way better already!
Wishing you joy & creativity,

Oh Sandy! Your dream office looks fantastic! I'll have to pin up an image of what my "dream" area is so I find something like that on sale :) What fun it will be to get it all organized! Thanks for sharing the photos...

Hi Sandy,

I tried to download the tiara pattern and this is the message I got "The download limit has been reached for this file. Please contact the sender and ask them to resend the file."

Love your new work space.

Julie Campbell said...

Hi Sandy! Just re-reading your post--do you want us to send you the actual hats or just the images? Just wondering--thanks!
