Hi all! I am taking a super quick break to post a pic of the Innovations Display we used for CHA featuring two kick-butt rojects by Sherrie Siemens and Pam Bassett. This photo was taken right before we loaded it into the display, (thank GOD Sherrie is tall, it was supposed to go on the top shelf and I, at under 5'3", wasn't going to cut it!) since they didn't allow pictures of the items once in the display. This was pretty much the only pic I took at CHA because I am the dork that travels with a package of batteries and her camera and never remembers to pull it out and use it! When Sherrie stepped inside the big glass case to officially *place* our display inside, I was overcome with emotion. Thank goodness my peeps were there to help me keep it together! This year has been such a wonderful journey for me and it's at times like these that I realize just how much has happened in that year. In that moment, I was so completely proud of the year MFT had and proud to be sharing it with people I've grown to know and love! My only regret is that my Mom was not there in her physical form to see it. I know she was there is Spirit, heck I'd be willing to bet she's done a lot of orchestration this past year! Having lost so much of my family the past couple of years, I find myself longing for them to share this with me. Add to that the immense gratitude and satisfaction I feel and you've got a serious recipe for tears! Since I will still be AWOL for a bit packing and shipping all these CHA orders I thought I would again offer some blog candy to tide everyone over until I have time to actually make something! Oh how I miss stamping!!!!!! (woe is me, right?) Anyhow....what about we head to the Wild West for a Ride 'Em Cowgirl set! I will pick a winner on March 5th, the day of the release party! Make sure to number your posts and add your email addy!!!!!!
Hugs to all,
Kim
