Hi everyone! First off, thanks so much for all the well wishes after the crash. Everyone is doing great, and the vision of impact is fading and life is moving forward. We went and bought a new SUV, which I am kinda scared to drive, but things are much better!
This is a CRAZY week for me and for My Daughters Wish. We have the man, the legend, the freaking rock star TIM HOLTZ arriving on Thursday night. Personally, I am super excited because I just think Tim is the most down to earth, friendly and hilarious guy ever! In the business sense, THE ART LIFE is getting ready to debut a bunch of new products this Friday at the store when we will have everyone coming in to visit. I have my August Kit, which is full of vintage ephemera, ribbons, german scrap, and all kinds of fun things! I also have this new Jenni Bowlin product.. mini chipboard albums, and mini BINGO CARDS! Aren't these the cutest things you've ever seen? So, I have put it all together in some inspiration kits that also include some JB tickets, Heidi Swapp Bling, ART Life charms buttons and other doodads.. I am making a ton of new vintage inspired ephemera packs, tins, and collage sheets to add to my section of the store. Seriously though the mini bingo cards are so adorable.. I can't wait to make something with them!
I also went to the San Francisco Gift Show which is a trade show for gift shops.. it was totally overwhelming but I ended up ordering some beautiful Midori Ribbons, and some product from PAPAYA! I ordered these two Art Panel Prints which are 12x16 that have ribbon and ready to hang. I ordered calendars, journals, and cards, so if you see something you like email me and I can hold it for you.
Finally, here is a pic of some beautiful furniture I found a few weeks ago, with another one of the Papaya prints behind it. I am in love with this little dresser.. so beautiful and my colors!
Whew.. I'll share more this week, sneak my August Kit, and share more things I purchased.. stuff for a cute Halloween project kit that you'll love!
