Hello from sunny California! I was amazed as we rode a shuttle from LAX to Anaheim to see palm trees juxtaposed against snow-covered mountains in the distance--so lovely! I took very few pictures in the exhibition galleries today (Sunday) because CHA actually starts tomorrow (Monday). I figured it would be highly frowned upon. I did ask permission to snap a couple of pictures at the Cornish Heritage Farms booth and in the Spellbinders booth as they were setting up for opening.
How about these darling little shoes? These were stamped with one of CHF's Kim Hughes sets, then embroidered over the top of that.I'm not positive who made them, but I think it was Anne Sanborne. (If anyone sees this and actually knows, feel free to correct me,and Ill get it changed!) On the inside she has them labeled "Kimmy Sh-Hughes."
Do you have kids who watch Thomas the Train? The buzz is that CHF has picked up the rights to manufacture a Thomas line! I can't wait to see those!
Oh, I almost forgot! I'm allowed to shout out one of my secrets! I had e-mailed Kim at Spellbinders a few months back and told her that we cardmakers really needed some smaller tags. I sent her a document showing her what I had in mind. . . Fast forward, they took my drawings and turned them into DIES! How sweet is that? My own product! I hope that you like them; I had a prototype to play with for a few days, and I'll be posting more samples when I am allowed to do so, but for now, here is a picture of my die sets. These are under the Shapeabilities line. I'm not positive when they will be available, but I think pretty soon. :-D
I was also able to do some of the design work on a new addition to the Nestabilities line--long rectangles called Megabilities. These are SO cool in that they are huge--think scalloped cards around 6" long! More about those in future posts, no doubt.
I hope to get bunches of pictures to share today! (If you're wondering about the time frame here, I started this post last night and feel asleep typing. . .) Have a great day!
