Hey all, I have just got home from California and Winter 2013 CHA! For the first time in a while, I did not work this CHA, I just came and walked the floor and it was AWESOME! Excited to see my projects in both the Prima and Teresa Collins booths! (will post photos of these soon!)
I also recently announced that I have resigned from the Prima Education team for personal reasons, BUT I am super super excited to be working with MY CRAFT CHANNEL.
My very funny Aussie friend and my protector Linelle Bird!
I was also very grateful to the very talented Ellen Vargo for this gorgeous name tag she made me :)
I am SUPER excited about Dyan's new products, including new stencils, stamps and color sprays and cannot wait to get my box of stuff to create with and design new workshops! Very happy to see also the new DISTRESS PAINTS!!! and Wendy Vecchi's PASTE, I was lucky to get a few to play with!

Hi everyone! At the end of October we had a competition for 12 people to win one of our amazing journals. The idea is to do a page in the journal then pass it along to a friend to do a page and so on. At the end we have asked that the last person send the journal back to Prima so we can keep it in our Library of Inspiration.
I completed the cover of my journal and we posted it on the Prima FB Page. Some people asked how I did the cover so I decided to do the step by step as my blog post for November :)
Things have been crazy busy (what's new) and I am currently so blessed to be traveling and teaching in Europe. I spent the better part of last week in Oslo and Tonsberg in Norway, it was an amazing experience!
First I went to Oslo to teach at the largest scrapbook store I have ever seen called HobbyKunst! I did four workshops, the ladies were all amazing and I hope they all had a fabulous time. We had a lot of laughs! A huge thank you to HobbyKunst for hosting me and to Connie Baever (and Finn) for taking me into her home as a guest... she did have me try the famous Norwegian brown cheese but I just couldn't get the taste for it LOL .
Here is Connie and one very tired me! We look a bit crazed in this photo.
Here are some photos from the HobbyKunst Classes:
Next I was off to Tonsberg to visit with the lovely ladies Monica and Hege from Gode Minner store. I took a ferry across the Oslo Fjorden which took about half an hour but it was a very smooth ride and they had WIFI lol!
Special thanks again to Monica who opened her lovely home to me and her wonderful family. Special hugs to Benjamin and Benedicte xxx
Monica, Me and Hege
I spend the whole day Sunday teaching at Gode Minner again with an amazing group of ladies :)
Thanks again to all the ladies who came to the workshops, I hope you had as much fun learning as I did teaching. xxx
When I was in Tonsberg I was so very lucky to meet one of the very talented girls from the Prima Design Team - Lene Bjornerud. Lene thank you for driving one hour to come and meet me, it was wonderful to see you xxx
And now for Oslo:
Connie and her lovely friend Annika took me out for the day. We went to this amazing park in Oslo called Vige Land Parken, it has amazing statues everywhere including the apparently famous 'Angry Boy'.
This is me and the lovely Annika :)
After my workshops in Tonsberg on Sunday, I spent Monday with Monica from Gode Minner. She took me to this lovely old castle on top of a small but steep hill (yes I walked up!) It overlooks Tonsberg and the view was stunning!
That evening Monica, Hege and I went for a walk along the pier at Tonsberg.
On Tuesday we went to see original Viking Ships at the VikingHus, these ships are total amazing...the vikings weathered all kinds of conditions at sea!
On my last night in Oslo we all went out for dinner. Thanks Connie, Monica and Hege, I had a fantastic time with you all xxx
Last week I was at the Sydney Expo for 2 days demostrating for Stamp-It Australia using Ranger products including Dylusions sprays, stamps and stencils, Tim Holtz Distress inks (including the new Summer colors!) and stains.
It was a lot of fun and I met a lot of lovely people! Here are some of the tags that I created.
