This past Saturday I hosted a special event at my house. I have never done anything like this before. It’s been in the works for months and I’m so excited to share it with you. Crafter’s Home (a group of store owners) is in town and they went on a studio tour all day Saturday. My home/studio was one of the stops on their itinerary! It was an honor to get to meet all these amazing crafters/business owners and get to know them.

The event was truly a community effort! Sarah with Crafter’s Home prepared and served the food, Sizzix sponsored the event and their designers made all of the decorations along with goodie bags, Echo Park Paper was also a sponsor, presented and provided goodies to take home. I taught a workshop where we made two cards from my new summer 2016 release with Sizzix using my Echo Park paper.

I also had have my office ready for the studio tour. And, last but certainly not least, my sweet husband has been grooming the yard and giving the garden some TLC for the past few months so that we could host the event. And, my two daughters were super helpful with setting up and serving the meal. Thanks everyone that helped pull this event off. It truly was teamwork!



Imagine the surprise on the neighbors faces when a charter bus pulled into the neighborhood. About forty to fifty people attended the event.

We enjoyed a lovely BBQ dinner with mason jars for lemonade and the cutest table decorations made with many of my Sizzix dies along with dies from other designers like Eileen Hull and Jo Packham (Where Women Cook)!


At the end of the event we took groups into my studio for a quick tour. Let me just say… there’s nothing like an event like this to get you organized and cleaned up. Now I’m afraid to go back to work because I really don’t want to mess it up again. HaHa!!

So, needless to say being gone for the fourth of July and then getting ready for this event has kept me pretty busy for the past couple of weeks. So, unfortunately there are no new releases this week. But, that’s OK because I have lots of new ideas flowing and will have time to devote to it this week. So, watch for new things coming this week.

 And, last but not least… would you like to see what our amazing team has created? Click the links below for some wonderful inspiration. If you get lost come back here to get on track.

WOW – it looks like it was a WONDERFUL day!!!
Thank You for sharing all the pics with us, especially your studio … I hope you are more organised that me and can find everything when you’re ready to get creative next time … I confess that when I have a tidy-up, it takes FOREVER to find where I have “hidden” almost EVERYTHING :)
My next project is going to be a snow globe card, well several actually, can’t decide between Santa, the snowman, the deer or the trees, so I am going to try them ALL!!!
