Hey all! A quick check in from CHA :) Betty and I arrived on Sunday having driven with an outhouse on the roof of the van for over 3 days and 1200 miles! I know, right. The van is packed to the gills with the store supplies and set up, all our classroom projects' parts and pieces, inks and rubber, glass, to brads, bottle caps to coasters....we are getting ready for a plethora of techniques and teaching fun. First was the COPIC certification class...good way to begin, don't you think? I know, you all thought I was going to grace Tim Holtz with another handshake, didn't you?! Sorry, but COPIC's called me away...this time.... ;)
Drumroll........Tada! I am officially COPIC certified, frog faithfuls! Wow, huh? We were in class all day, playing and learning what to do with these wonderful markers....I even learned to use the airbrush system with them....and blending lots of different ways as well as how to put a shadow under your image in the right way! Betty and I are having a great time, but we are anxious to set up the booth and begin classes for the Supershow after the trade show ends....the rest of the team will come Wednesday, so pray for travelling mercies and for it all to come together. So exciting!
I let my daughter use my camera for her vacation, so I don't think you'll see any pictures of me with Cuttlebug or Cricket this year, but I'm hoping to snap a few pictures of some of the projects using lots of the fun new techniques and tools I learn this year.....and when I get back, I'll share a paper piecing card I made for a swap with some ladies from the stamping cruise last fall. I have to wait until all of us receive our swap cards. Isn't it amazing how many friends one can make in stamping and papercrafting?! A community, i tell you!! If you haven't done so already, you may want to consider hopping over to join the Papercrafting Planet forum. Friends come in all shapes and ink colors you know! ;) Have a wonderful week!
