A peek, almost published and photo Friday


First...the peek...(come back Monday...I'll show the whole (box)!)
Here's a tiny piece of a project that's headed to NY with Maya Road for the stationary show next weekend. You can easily customize the trinkets metal flowers, by punching coordinating paper from your project, and then using it as a flower center.
And, you can also see some MR rub-ons on the fragments. Perfect for creating dimension & interest. The more I play with the fragments...the more I LOVE them. REALLY FUN stuff...

Second...almost published...
Last week I got an email from Jane Guthrie, who is the editor of Scrapbooking and Beyond and also Paper Creations. I will have a "project" published in either the winter issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond or Paper Creations. She hasn't decided just yet. YIPPEE!
So, the instructions are all typed up and the "project" has been sent and one thing is checked off the to-do list.

And today is photo Friday...
To finish up the newspaper interview, the photographer is coming this afternoon. Hopefully, he'll take photos of my studio or my art & NOT me. I HATE to have my picture taken.

Still on the to-do list...
YIKES...it's hard to believe that CHA summer is only about 2 months away. Assignments should be coming very soon from Maya Road. We did get a sneak peek of some new products......TOTALLY cool stuff you'll LOVE!
***
Also for CHA...art for Stampers Anonymous & some tim/Advantus grunge stuff. Got one grungey "thing" done already...REALLY cool, if I say so myself!! HA!
***
And then there's the ........OOPS...can't tell you about that. It's still too soon...BUT..........I'm SOOOOOOOO excited...
***
I'm dieing to get a few spare minutes to ink up Rachel's new stamps too. Got some ideas brewing...just need some time.......I haven't forgot you Rachel!

So how cool is it to 'be you' right now??? I just love this post! You are 'in the zone' girl!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!! And, can't wait to see the article!

Also, on the mini album - remember the train chipboard one I won? Is Maya wanting us to be using new products or can I submit the train???

Maya Road is third on my list to get done by Sunday. I'm using the mini-ablum I won from you and a few other items I won at CHA. So I'll see what I can do...nothing like you can...but I'll try.
