atc swap = good fun

I'm so happy Jenn organized the ATC swap at Studio Calico. I had never made ATC's before, so it was a challenge for me. On the flip side, my swap partners had obviously had experience because their cards were sooooooo cool!!! I got 2 in the mail the same day (I'm still waiting on a 3rd) and it was such a fun mail day. This is what I got:

I think Jenn paired me with the best on purpose ;)

In other news.....if you haven't heard already, the fabulous Claudine Hellmuth is going to be guest designing with December's kit at Studio Calico. Several of you have surmised that perhaps her new products might find their way into a kit. You might be right. Another several have predicted that her new products might find their way to our new supply store. You might be right.

Scarlet and I fell in love with Claudine's products at CHA Summer. Here we are (including the DT) playing with her sticky-back canvas, paint, and paintbrushes.

If you don't already own a good set of brushes....please wait until November 28th. That's all I'm lips are sealed. (Claudine's are amazing and they're so cost-effective!!!!)

My sister also fell in love with Claudine and her artwork. This is the only "celebrity" Amber took a picture with at the whole show. She plans to commission Claudine to create a work of art with she and her dog, Holly.
Just to give you a visual, this is Holly. Remember last post, I told you about my lazy eye? Well, Holly has a lazy ear.
Thanks for reading my blog today!

I love Claudine. Some of my first "layout" postings at SC were cards/tags based on Claudine's ideas. Like this:

Anyway...I am very excited to have her as a GDT. :o)
