TGIF! **NEWS FLASH " @ end of post!


sorry for the lack of updates...

YIKES...pre-CHA is a very busy time...

I've been typing book #3 instructions for 2 full days.
Finalizing projects...
doing book updates...

Creating the projects is so much fun...
writing instructions & supply lists...not so much...

The finished projects are now @ Stampers Anonymous...
and are being photographed by Matt...the genius...

I'm thrilled with the new stamps & projects I designed....
REALLY HAPPY!
This is my favorite release so far...just sayin'

It won't be long now, as CHA is only a month away...

BUT, here's some REALLY GOOD NEWS...

my new stamps will be released @ the Carson, Ca convention on July 10th & 11th...

hey...that's only 2 WEEKS from today!!!

which means that I'll be able to share them here, before that!!

so...SOON!!! less than 2 weeks!!!

YIPPEE!!!

And...I have an announcement coming early July...

this has been in the works for quite a while...
and has me totally over the top EXCITED!!!

Here's a little hint...
it involves...art parts!

Can't post without a photo or 2...so here's one quickie peek...

I LOVE tim's curio knobs...
seriously LOVE them...

that's the back part of a hitch fastener peeking thru...



and this one shows 2 NEW studio 490 stamps...
barely!

Hmmm...could that be a swivel clasp?
I think so...



One more thing before I get back to work...

I know lots of you LOVE tim's snaps...
which sadly got discontinued...

But the good news...

Heidi (I sat with her @ Ranger U) told me that she was lucky to purchase a hidden stash of snaps & has them available.

Once they're gone...
they're REALLY gone...
so...if you've been hunting them down...

here's your chance to SCORE some snaps!

That's it...
enjoy your weekend...

make art!
wendy

WOOHOO...I just got notified that Heidi also located some of the awesome discontinued alcohol ink storage tins that tim had specially made (by Cropper Hopper) to store his alcohol inks, blending solution, tool & felt.

I have one to store stickles too. It holds 28 in the slots & LOTS more in the large compartment. PERFECTION!

Another...when it's gone...it's GONE!

and one more...she also scored a few of the discontinued embossing powder tins.
This is GREAT for storing other things too...
like the alcohol ink refillable pen...got mine in one!
I use one for my tools too...scissors, adhesives, craft pick etc...

It holds tim's distress crackle paint too...

Just thought you'd like to know...discontinued FINDS = FUN!
ps...
don't tell your hubby where you got the scoop...don't want anyone mad @ me...

I'm very excited about the phrase "art parts." Could this mean some Wendy-designed embellishments for our art? Be still my heart!
Thanks for the sneak peeks...such as they were. Sneaky, yes. A peek, not so much. Love ya anyway.

Can't wait for that next book and new stamps! With all the summer re-runs on TV, I have been spending summer nights recreating some of the projects from your first 2 books at night! What fun - even better than TV!!! I am getting first hand practice using the techniques and my imagination when I don't have all the ingredients. Thanks for the motivation! Marijane
