CHA 2007

The wonderful Wizard of Spellbinders sent me to California for the annual Craft and Hobby Association Trade show in late January. Inspiring, exhausting, enlightening, and challenging--I'm so thankful I could experience it again.

I had the opportunity to meet the FABULOUS Pattie Donham (www.pattiewack.com) and she even sent a camera crew to see the Wizard. The group shot includes Jeff & Stacey Caron, co-inventors of the Wizard along with Mark from our corporate offices and Design Team Members from all over the country. We were joined by the rest of the talented Design Team for a retreat after the show. The generous and creative folks at Pine Cone Press had us over to play in their awesome studio!


I keep a lot of lists and prompts around me. I love them most days, and they help me get more done. I also keep a journal, a scrapbook, and a daytimer.
Pictured here is a journal I made from a game board using the Rollabind(tm) binding system and collage techniques.
I have grand ideas about a blog, but, of course, never enough time to finish them all. Here's a few prompts for me, or if you want to comment, you certainly can do so too....
