goodbye 2011...

I was sort of sad when Christmas was over...
all that prep & anticipation...
over ...
in what seemed to be a flash...

it was a great holiday with family & friends...

and we did add some memories to our hearts...
I hope you did too...

I got happier when I realized that with Christmas over, we are getting SO CLOSE to 2012...

I am soooo looking forward to 2012!

and the first EXCITING event...
CHA...

prep here is in "full speed ahead" mode...
lots of projects...
lots of deadlines...
lots of private peeks & meetings...
lots of "making art" & lots of fun...

here's a very small peek @ my new line of embellishments with blossom bucket...

the line is called...
embellish your art...

the packaging will look like this...

unfortunately, I had to chop off the product that is attached to this card...
sorry...

card top...

insert product photo here! lol...


card bottom...


these are resin products, all sized to work perfectly with art parts & my stamps...

and with a BILLION other things too...

I have had so much fun making samples with them...

I'm expecting peeks to start in less than 2 weeks...
so not a long wait @ all...
YIPPEE!

in addition to the resin embellishments, there will be a few other *things* that I've been wanting/needing...

believe me...

just as soon as I get the GO AHEAD...
I will be sharing them here...

I am over the moon excited to share & to hear your thoughts...

when I talked about working on new stamps, back in October, I got quite a few suggestions for stamps & some questions too....

I pulled them out of the file...
because I NEEDED something to blog about...

here we go...

question #1. I collect cat & dog stamps. please tell me that you'll consider designing some...

ME...NOPE SORRY...you won't be happy!

question #2. you didn't make flower stamps this time & I want you to know that I/we need more...

ME...you WILL be happy! I LOVE flowers too!

question #3. will you consider more stuff for men please

ME...you WILL be happy!

question #4. more large backgrounds too

ME...you WILL be happy

question #4. how about a porpoise stamp & some aspen trees?

ME...you will NOT be happy!

question #5. make us lots more art parts with coordinating stamps

ME...you WILL be VERY happy...

question #6. are you doing another book for those of us who don't have classes in our area?

ME...you WILL be happy...
and here's a little scoop...

book #6 is a whole new LARGE size & format...

LARGER PHOTOS & LARGER TEXT TOO...
change is good!

question #7. I'm hoping for more large art part frame type pieces for gift giving

ME...you WILL be happy!

question #8. loved the kit idea. any hope of getting them monthly...

ME...YIKES...I gotta sleep sometime...
BUT...
I *think* you'll be happy with another 1 or 2...
coming soon...
stay tuned...

question #9. give us a little nugget. we won't tell HONEST...

ME...HMMM...ok...

this time I did lots of fun/humorous sayings & images too...

remember...
what happens on the blog...stays on the blog!

that's it for today!

with all this talk about new art stuff...
I'm excited to get into the studio to...

make art!

Què hi tinc jo a veure, digueu-me homes,
amb les espases i les batalles?
L’única estrella que prenc per guia
és la del gaudi i de la música.
Feliç any 2012 !!
