We're Back....

Well, where would you like me to start???

We had a great time, we walked miles and took in some beautiful new lines for the shop. We did serious shopping with the book company , i want one of every book thats coming in! Do you know how long it takes to choose ribbons???you think you know what you want and then there are literally thousands to choose from.

None of you care about that do you? you all want to know who we met!


we met Tim (we're on first name terms now!) he was really nice did a great demo and makes everything look so easy. He had done 3 huge shows this month and is on QVC today (i think) so he is basically sick of talking to people but was still really nice. He asked us to go for dinner with him but we didn't want to look like groupies! (the truth is that someone who was having dinner with him asked us to come along, there was a party of 30, so 2 more wouldn't have mattered!)

BUT ...... we met Claudine Hellmuth, I LOVE HER! she was soooo nice and made and signed samples for us, she is just a tiny thing, she might have fitted into a suitcase if we'd have tried to kidnap her! Her paints are really vibrant colours and the mediums have loads of uses.

So that was it, the deliveries will arrive by mid March so check out http://www.craftyalley.com/ to see whats new.

I'll put up pictures, but my hair looks weird ( not that you'll be looking at me of course!)



  1. Wow lucky you Felicia, I am sooo jealous lol!
    Glad you had a great time and a safe journey!

  2. I am actually going to die of jealousy. DIE!! I have no other words. Just jealous. Green.

  3. Wow Felicia! I'm so excited for you. I'd hoped you would have a chance to have a photo taken with him...(just so I can say, "I know her." LOL Claudine Hellmuth as well! I think you'll have to make a mini of your trip.:c) So happy you and Cathy had such a great time. Can't wait to hear all about it. See you tomorrow.

  4. Hi Felicia,
    I hope you're having a good day today. :c) I wanted to send you the link to the interview with Tim Holtz I was telling you about last night. This link is for part 2 of the video. If the link doesn't work, then you can check it out on YouTube. The channel is "customcrops" (February 3, 2010) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnO8-XiRx2g

    For the life of me, I can't recall what else I was supposed to tell you...

    Anyway, hope to see you Saturday. Thanks again for driving last night.
