My Craft Studio starring ME!

Hello everyone! A few weeks back I had the privilege of going to film a little segment on My Craft Channel. I share my love of all things cute, my passion for designing for some fabulous companies and learn a little bit about my crafty pursuits and my love for a certain song " pre MTV VMA's" lol! Kristine McKay is so fun to work with - makes being on camera so much less stressful! And I have to give a big shout out to my bestie Lori Allred who set it all up. She is not only a great friend , but a great "agent" as well. I am blessed and lucky to have someone I get to share my love of crafting with - as well as hang out with and just chill :) She is the best! Love you girl!

 I just have to say it has been so fun over the last year or so to get to spread my wings a little bit in the crafty world. I got to work behind the scenes with Doodlebug Design and be able to design projects for their booth at CHA. For those of you who don't know what CHA is, it is a huge trade show featuring many, many scrapbook and paper craft companies. They have booths that show what products with be on sale for the upcoming half of the year. There are 2 shows - one in summer and one in the winter. Being a paper crafter it is like the best to be able to attend CHA and to see all the beautiful projects that the companies have designed. It is lots and lots of eye candy. I am so impressed with the creativity of so many designers.
If you are in the Salt Lake area as well - Id love for you to come over and check out my LSS (local Scrapbook Store) and second home Heartland Paper Co. in Bountiful, Utah. I have been there for almost 16 years now and I just love this happy place. It makes me sad to see so many Mom and Pop Stores closing down- so please - support your local stores - stop by and see my friend Donna - the owner of Heartland. She is truly one of the most giving and helpful managers I have had the pleasure of working with - SUPPORT LOCAL! My P.S.A. for the day lol :)
Thanks for stopping by and hello to all my new followers! Leave me some love! I'd love to follow you all back on your blogs as well. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Tya I watched the clip and just loved your camera box. I don't have a Silhouette, but do have a Cricut and was wondering if there is a cut file or instructions for creating the box somewhere. thanks Rosemary

Rosemary - I wish there was more info I could give you! While I love Cricut products, I do not own one so I am not sure what direction to point you in! Thanks for your sweet comment and good luck. If I find anything out I will let you know :)
