Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Sometimes it pays to go outside your comfort zone.  I was wandering around Creativation when a nice lady walked up to me and invited me to a Make and Take at the Tombow booth.  “What are we makin and takin?” I ask.  “Brush Lettering” she says.  Well, if you lined up all things that I am not good at, brush lettering would be at the top of the list, so I declined.  As I was walking by the table , the lady noted again that there was just one spot left………..for me.  So I sat down, made the most horrendous attempt at brush lettering and proceeded to win the grand prize in the giveaway.  Sometimes it just pays to humiliate oneself!

I walked away with an Advanced Set of Brush Lettering Pens AND their brand new Planner book.  Woo Hoo!

I cannot post my Brush Lettering entry as I deliberately left it on the table.  It truly would be total humiliation for me to post it, but I will post the cards I made in the Waffle Flower workshop.  There are some great stamps coming out from Waffle Flower.  The one I am most excited about is a layering stamp for making marbled backgrounds.  Included with the workshop was the stampset with the deer on it entitled Wild and Free.

Here they are:

Creativation 2017

Well. yesterday was my first day at Creativation!  I negotiated the Indianapolis 500 that is the I-10 freeway that leads to downtown without incident and only had to circle the convention centre about three times before finding a parking space.

I was astounded to see the distances people traveled to attend this event.  Had coffee with a lady from Panama.  Sat between a lady from Columbia and a lady from Stockholm at the Lawn Fawn class.

The Lawn Fawn class was fun.  I was also surprised to find out how far flung the various employees of the companies can be.  The Lawn Fawn pieces were stamped and coloured on the east coast, but cut out and kitted on the west coast.

Some cute stuff is coming out from Lawn Fawn.  Here is what we made:

Thanks to Scrapendipity for allowing me to represent the store.  I truly am acting like “a kid in a candy store”
