Opportunities...they just keepa knockin'!

I must be living a charmed life! It's like one exciting thing after another keeps coming my way! Today I got home from running errands and another company emailed and said they liked my Designer's Showcase and would like me to do "something" for them. She said to expect a call in the next few days to give me the details...hmmm...I wonder which project caught their eyes?
I've had several manufacturers ask if they could send me boxes of their products to use in my work..."why of course", I always respond!
And did I tell you that "Creative TECHniques" (an artsy/techy magazine) has asked me to write a regular column! Oh my gosh! It'll be based on my "How'd She Do That?" series, but with a digital twist. First column will be released on my birthday...next summer.

All this has happened since I got BACK from CHA...I guess I can say the show was a success! And the Designer's Showcase is kinda like that pink bunny...it just keeps on giving and giving...err, something like that!

Right now, I'm working on some design ideas for a line of stamps for a new stamp company!!! Watch for more announcements 'bout this!!! It's gonna be good!

Oh yeah, I saw the photo of the project I was doing for the Better Homes and Garden ad, and despite of all the struggles with humidity...not bad! The photographer made the votives look quite elegant. It'll be in a Christmas BH&G...I'll let you know when it's released.

So much excitement, so many deadlines…good thing I’m a list maker! Now, where’s my marker board?

I’ve been working on my studio…thinning out stuff…and you know that’s a tough thing to do for us collagy type! Oh, I might need that, or I could distress it and ink it and emboss it then it would be perfect, or I think I’ll use that for a project in the next decade! But, I’m trying to be good…gave a bunch of “stuff” to a friend of my daughter’s to use in her absolutely adorable baby’s scrapbook. I made a stack of stuff to add to my other stack of stuff to take to the Ronald McDonald House. Have a batch of stuff for ebay…and a large black trash bag. I’m getting some sort of perverse pleasure from filling that bag…it’s like a weigh is being lifted. Better get back to purging before the mood shifts….

Well, I couldn't think a better person for this to happen to. I must say I knew it would and these people see what all of your followers have seen over the past years.
