One of the highlights of going to the Craft and Hobby Association Meeting is getting a chance to meet up with friends you know from "on-line", some face book friends - and always the people that you work with for the places you design for. This year I was so blessed to spend a lot of time with my dear friend Nathalie Kalbach from Germany. I know some of you know that we "met" when we were both designers for a Kit Club called ScrapMuse. I feel so lucky that we haven't drifted apart and continue to inspire and uplift each other as the years pass. It was wonderful to walk the show with her and talk about the trends, our art and where we want to go with this creative life of ours! We both missed our dear friend Vicki Chrisman, next time girlfriend. ;-)
I was also blessed to spend a little time talking with Heidi Swapp. She really is the nicest, most genuine person -- and very warm and down to earth. It was so awesome to share with her what an inspiration she has been to me over the years. Thanks Heidi ;-)
While it's great to get away and be inspired by new products and great friends -- it's always wonderful to get home to my two sweet men that I missed so much.
And lastly, I have a few stamping projects I made for Inkadinkado that were on display at the show. I am so in love with this new line of wooden stamps they have coming out from Brenda Walton and Susan Winget. I hope you will love them as much as I do!
Another butterfly card with coffee....yes the line has a couple different butterfly stamps and I am overjoyed by that!
