Welcome back. Today's post is all about the projects...mine and others from friends around the world... and booths I loved. The show seemed smaller to me, but none the less filled with inspiration galore. Grab some sustenance.
The Ranger Booth:
|I made several samples for the booth this year. Here are some photos of them...sorry some are blurry...but I will have much more detail about them later.|
|There were 20 of us in Ranger's Tim Holtz Evolution of Distress Designer Challenge. Here is mine...more on that later. Thanks for the photo Marjie. Talk about some stunning pieces of artwork!|
|Here are some samples from last year that were still up...you might recognize a few of mine.|
|All Tim Samples|
|Idea-ology is always my favorite booth. The samples blew me away.|
The Sizzix Booth:
|Tim and crew outdid themselves this year in the Sizzix Booth. The top of his portion was unbelievable with giant sized laser cut pieces of his new City Scape Line...I was in awe!|
Eileen Hull's Booth with Scotty:
Spellbinder's Booth with Seth Apter:
American Crafts Booth with Vicki Boutin:
Pulsar Booth with Cross Stitch Style:
|Paula sent me to this booth, and I couldn't get over the old wicker backed chair all cross stitched up. What a great idea for old furniture. It was stunning!|
The Crafter's Workshop Booth:
The Spinrite Yarns Booth with Bernat:
|This was a huge booth, but on the side of it was a Bernat display that blew me away. It was a whole winter wonderland snow play area and warm cozy hideaway.|
|The whole fireplace, fire, and even logs and deer head were all crocheted.|
Phew...that was a lot. Here is one more photo with a blog friend who just made my day. Thank you Cathy for the visit!!!
My next post is about the products newly releases at the show that I just have to have...yikes!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
