back to brown...


This is NOT ILLINOIS...
we have BROWN...
California has green...

oh wait...
we have noticed a bit of green here @ Green Acres...
unfortunately...
it's...

WEEDS!

But...
green weeds are still better than brown everything...

Moving on...
I MAY BE A BIT PREJUDICE...
but here's a cool sight...
all 33 sets of my stamps & 2 books...

I'm still surprised/amazed every time I see them...




The lucky folks @ the Carson convention got first dibs on tim's new Sizzix dies...

another beautiful sight...
they just arrived on Friday!

it still thrills me to see large quantities of...

ART STUFF!!!!!!




and here's more of tim's Sizzix dies...
I LOVE them...
and so did the shoppers in Carson...




and speaking of shopping...

Several friends asked to see "the bracelet"...
so here's the lovely I got @ Luna's in Long Beach...
there were LOTS of temptations there...



I REALLY REALLY REALLY want this...
it's from Anthropologie...


I collect the vintage shut off valves...
to me they look like...


flowers!


the one on the left is gigantic...
like the size of a dinner plate...HUGE.
BUT..........

It was soooooooo heavy...

I thought about Suze's line..."do you ship?"...


I'm still thinking.
I REALLY love this...
oops..sorry...I already said that...

Look how CUTE!!!!!




The convention is lots of work...
but we have LOTS of fun & laughs...
and...
Ted feeds us well...

I'm assuming this giganto was lo-cal???




Sorry...this is blurry because I was laughing...
here's Ted...
he LOVES ice cream!



then...I came home to this...
YIPPEE...
AWESOME job done by Stampington...
GREAT photos...

I'm 1000% thrilled...


I just spoke with Daisy from eclecticPaperie...
*
since I didn't have time to remind you over the weekend about the stamp sale...
*
it will continue thru Wednesday the 17th...
that's tomorrow.
*
So...if there is something you missed...
you have another short chance to SHOP.
*
OH...one more thing...
I see they also have the jenni bowlin buttons I used in stock...both in white & cream...
*
they have the butterflies too!
ALL the colors...
*
Time to answer more emails & finish unpacking...
then I'll...
make art!

Glad to have you back!

The chair is so totally you Wendy! You have to get it! Sounds like you had lots of fun. WHen you see Ted again, ask him if he remembers the crazy lady from the Columbia, SC show. Someone wanted to order your new stamps and he didnt have pics of them. I just so happend to have copies of them that I had printed and taken with me, to help me decide which ones to buy. I gave him those copies so that he could show them to other customers. In return he gave me a set of stamps, and I am forever grateful. He was a great guy, cant wait to see him again, and cant wait to meet you in August in Columbia! Have fun making lots of Art!
Hugs from the beach!

I fantasize about unpacking boxes and boxes and boxes of your stamps and Tim's "stuff." lol Welcome back from Carson.

divester said...

I would have to have the bracelet too - I make jewelry and it is my weakness (or one of them) yours and Tims stamps are the other one - but at least I can say I have all your stamps sets now - YEAH! I would love to have that chair -wow. I just got your book so I have been reading thru it.

Etta said...

Wanda H said...

Glad to have you back and posting!!!! The chair is fabulous!!! I am now the proud owner of all of your new sets of stamps and more of the older sets that I didn't have... YES!!!... also I was at the store in Ankeny yesterday while the hubby delivered some parts to a company up there and picked up some of Tim's new dies. I've probably shopped all I can for quite awhile :-)) Now I just need time... having lunch now, then it's back out to the shop.

Jenna said...

Hi Wendy
a couple of weeks ago, you mentioned a class using antique shoe lasts. (I think... :)). I have been dying of curiosity to see what you've cooked up. I happen to have a shoe last and am hoping for some inspiration! I can't wait to hear an update!

Kathy said...

Wishing you lots of green on this St. Patty's day.

Glad you're back, Wendy. Congrats on being the "cover girl"! You certainly deserve it. Your artwork is just stunning.

susan said...

It was fun to see you at the Carson show and I'm so glad I was able to add a couple more stamp sets to my collection along with your new book.

I can't even imagine how much work the shows are, so here's a big thank you for coming and giving informative demos. THANK YOU!

Sue McGettigan said...

All those lovely birdcages were gone by the time I got there - the early stamper catches the dies! Congrats on the coolio cover!
