I'm THRILLED to announce...

a few weeks ago I announced that I had licensed my art to BLOSSOM BUCKET.

they will magically transform the art into items for the gift industry, which will be released in July @ the Atlanta gift show...

all 21 pieces of art have been made & sent...
now we wait...to see the real deal...
it's a very exciting step for me...

here's THE NEW NEWS I've been so excited about...

Blossom Bucket & I have teamed up
and I will have my own signature line of

studio 490 style EMBELLISHMENTS
with them!

here's the part you'll like...

they have their booth space reserved @ CHA!

that means the embellishments will be released in January!

so that's NOT a long wait at all...
YIPPEE!!!

I've designed LOTS of embellishments with my stamps & art parts in mind...

giving us LOTS of fun creative options...

these EMBELLISHMENTS will be cool for card makers, altered art makers & scrapbookers too......

and...
there may just be a surprise product or 2 coming...

I'm over the moon about this...
because I thought we had to wait 'til July...
but it will be JANUARY too...
...YIPPEE!

Cindy is the owner of Blossom Bucket & I immediately liked her when we met...

she is well respected in the gift industry...
believe me...I CHECKED...

she's been in business over 20 years...

the quality of their products is awesome...
I checked that too...

all the ideas for the embellishments have been sent...
so, this explains my lack of blogging for the last few weeks...

let me just say this once more...
YIPPEE!!! I CAN NOT WAIT 'til CHA!!!

ok...moving on...phew.........

thanks so much for your excitement for KITS FOR ART...
I'm glad you're happy!

I've been answering emails from store owners about how to order...
(right from Stampers Anonymous)
and many have said they are ordering today...

since the KITS are completed & ready to ship,
I expect to see the kits in stores & in on-line stores VERY soon...
I'll keep you posted...

again... I thank you for being excited too!

next stop on this art adventure is back to

Sharon has chosen 3 fun classes,
including MY all time favorite...

Ranger Inks II, studio 490 style...
this is MY MOST FAVORITE class to teach...

I taught a 4 hour version of this class there before,
but it's now expanded to 6 hours of inky fun...
plus there is a pizza lunch included...
we gotta have energy to MAKE ART!

I LOVE this class, because by the end,
I can really see that each person develops their own individual style...

each person has access to the same products,
but no 2 tags look the same...EVER!

I LOVE IT & that's what it's all about...
developing YOUR style...

this is another fun class...



and the kits come in this fabric bag, which we also alter...



time to get in full speed ahead...
kit making mode here...

I think I'll see if I can *recruit* Rick for some assistance...

HUGE thanks to Cindy @ Blossom Bucket for inviting me to join her company!

do you see why I couldn't sleep?
plus...
in my spare time, I've already sent some NEW stamp images
to Zach @ Stampers Anonymous...

have a great day & as always...
I hope you can...

make art!
wendy
ps...The Bears suck...boo
