Wow, what a weekend. After a vacation, Rick and I went to Los Angeles to attend the Craft & Hobby Assocation trade show. We had an awesome time and saw so many things that are going to be a great addition to the art expression at Rocky Mountain Memories. Here's one of my hot finds and I'll be sharing in upcoming entries some of the exciting things coming to the store.
Here I am with JoAnn at the BoBunny booth. I can't WAIT for these things to get to the shop. They've got some fabulous new papers and embellishments that are just right. Such nice people, too. JoAnn and I talked about what works for our shop and picked pieces just for you. Take a look at Timepieces.
Clocks are popular and so classic. This collection is VERY well done, I know you're going to love it. These papers & embellishments will also flow well with several B Line, Graphic 45 and Tim Holtz items in the store.
Here's a page done with a paper from the Gabrielle line. Such beautiful, rich colors. Butterflies, text, flourishes, vintage grunge.
Items from CHA begin arriving this week. I'll be blogging new things as they come in. I hope you'll come in and see them up close & personal.
"I don't worry about the wounds. When I go up there, which is my intention, the Big Judge will say to me, Where are your wounds? and if I say I haven't any, he will say, Was there nothing to fight for?" - Alan Paton, Ah, But Your Land is Beautiful
Love never fails. - Paul, the Apostle
God seems to be far less concerned with where I'm going than with who I'm becoming. - Mark Batterson
Living in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado greatly influences me as a mixed media artist. For me, the Rockies are much more than granite and elk. The birds, the wildflowers, the smells and sounds cooperate and harmonize into something that soothes and settles the soul. Bring together the hard edges and the soft flutters, the dark shadows and the sparkling light, the strength of the bull elk and the delicacy of the lupine and you'll find the beautiful contrasts that move me.
