popping in...


YIKES...long time no blog!

it's full speed ahead here, 
making CHA samples...
oh & a little shopping...
that's my story & I'm stickin to it...


I thought I'd show you our favorite new holiday decor piece...
it's a giant new, but vintage-ish,
 marquee sign...
with vintage looking light bulbs...

it's about 3 feet wide...
& it sits on top of the refrig...

not the easiest to photograph...
but I think you get the idea...

makes me smile...


several people have asked when sneak peeks start...

how about today?


I spy 3 NEW_____...

this release is a fun one...
I *think* I say that every time...
but it's true...

here's some hints & answers to recent inquiries...

#1 is a frequent one...

1. I sure hope you're planning on giving us potting soil as an embossing powder...my favourite of all your colours...
me...sorry...not this time!

2. more flowers please...
me...you bet! I'm having a blast with these new guys...can't wait to show them...

3. I would love to see smaller images that we cardmakers can use. specifically sized for cards and card sentiments too...
me...I *think* this release fits the bill...
I've made quite a few card samples...

4. I find your stamp-it stencil-it sets very easy to use and they seem to help jump start me some days. I hope you'll continue along that line...
me...THANKS so much!
...you will be happy...
I AM!

5. any chance you'll create thin dies that are so popular? I'm especially thinking of dies for your flowers...

me...nope...here's why...
the thin dies don't cut my clearly for art...

when I design the flowers, I like to have the option to layer them & clearly for art is the perfect strong, sturdy layering surface...
if I'm taking the time to make something, I want it to last & not get crushed or easily damaged...

so, we'll just keep using scissors...
I stamp a bunch & cut them out while watching the Bears lose...
haha! 


ok...that's it for today...

I hope you have a wonderful weekend...

it's back to the studio for me...

time to

make more (CHA) art!
