Very Important Stuff

Each and every bit of this pile is very important. Yep it's a pile of rusty jewelery, "LOL". If you know me well you will know how excited I get when I find something rusty or old. I'm sure some of you can relate to the fact that we may walk down the street with our heads or eyes, or both, down, as not to miss the treasures left behind by others,, a flattened rusty bottle cap, an old coin, a sleeper bolt(Kelsey), a zipper pull (Jen), old numbers on telegraph poles(oop's got to look up for them LOL).
During our Sydney trip, we were taxied around by Sally, from Delish Designs and Mindy from Blue Eye Dezines
Thanks girls. They were very obliging and on the Thursday we went on a treasure hunt, to the suburb of Alexandria(I think), where, thanks to Judy, who told Jenny we found the best jewelery supply place ever. I think we could of been there for 2 or so hours, but it was worth it. Birds, jump rings (all shapes and colors), wire, my rusty stash and a $100 lighter I left, a bit grubby (had to rummage to find the best rust) but bursting with creative ideas for my bits. So hopefully I will get the time to create and share real soon.

5 Bucks and 1/2 a Kabab,,,,, or not ???

The title,,,, well thats a long story, will tell you in a little while.

I'm back and revived from SIA in Sydney. I'm sure everyone who attended would say it was a success and only to be bigger and better next year, so keep a lookout for it.
I had a blast, I met so many people, some who I have admired for a long time and it was a pleasure to meet you face to face.

Collections Elements Rocked the show. I think we inspired many, at least I hope so, as that is what this paper craft industry is all about.

Our make'n'takes were very popular.
This is one Kareena made.
The bird wasn't a make and take we planned, it just happened. We ran out of birds in the end, sorry for those who missed out. :0(

The Art wall. On the stand.

I will have to leave it there for now as I'm off to work, I'll fill you in on more tomorrow night.

A quick one!!!

My poor blog, a bit neglected :0(
Been working my butt off lately, both at work and at the craft table. I just wish there was more creating time. I've been bursting at the seams with creative ideas, thanks to Julie from Collections. As you might know I love, love, love her products.
I'm off to Sydney next week with Julie and Jenny.C for the SIA trade event, to promote her goodies. Max is coming too, so I can't wait.
Come say Hi if your going to be there, the show samples are to die for.
Here is a sneak peek of the only sample I have a pic of (will change that asap). You can also check out what Julie has shared on her blog along with Max's and Jenny.B.'s sneak peeks too.
I will share all I have created after the show and all of Julie's new products will be available at Scraptivate next week.
