OK, well all of my projects are complated for CHA and I fly out on Wednesday to Chicago. Lots of long hours and late nights this past week getting the projects finished, then tearing a few apart and re-doing them, especially if they do not turn out the way I had imagined them in my head! Photos are taken, portfolio is updated and brochures are printed, so now all I have to do is PACK, which will be no small task!
I always feel like a kid going to Summer Camp when I am on my way to CHA. It is refreshing and rejuvinating to be surrounded by all of that creativity - I love it! I have also volunteered to help out more this year with the Children's Designer Display, the Designer Showcase and the Press Room - all very exciting!
Today I will share a project that is featured this month on the Today's Creative Home Arts website home page. Here is the link if you want to check it out http://creativehomeartsclub.com/Projects/Project.aspx?id=106454

Hectic day today trying to get my brochures redesigned for the Press Room at CHA. I have updated my bio, added some new photographs and used a new font, so I am happy with what I have created. Just have to print them and cut them. One more item to check off my list - YEA!
The project that I will share today is actually a cigar box purse that I created for CHA last Summer. Very cool shaped cigar box that I picked up in Ybor City (Tampa) in the Cuban District where they still roll cigars by hand! Have a great Wednesday!

Well, not much going on today in Florida, but thunderstorms with lots of lightening. I am working on finishing up all of my projects for the CHA Children's Designer Display - there will be four rooms built on the trade show floor - a livng room, beadroom, art classroom and a kitchen. I have 3 projects in each room, so I have been busy!
The project that I am sharing today is a fun one that I did for a Paper Crafts Magazine JOCM call, but was not accepted. Oh, well, better luck next time! It has bright colors and an inspirational message. Enjoy!

I know that the 4th of July was last Friday, but I thought I would share these cute and sparkly cupcake picks and treat bag clips that the kids and I made from stickers, wooden shapes and glitter glue.
These National Symbols remind me of out Troops all over the world that are fighting for our Freedom. Peace.
