Well I might have started the day topless, but it's been all PG 13 since then. Strangely, the service isn't nearly as good. Hmph!
Okay - I'm done with make & takes, and during the session there were some GREAT product demonstrations.
My favorite was the Manhattan style Watch. Look at the BRONZE cardstock, that has been embossed with the new embossing die, and glittered with some new, very Martha-esque glitter! It's gorgeous!!
Look closely at some of these photos - there are some things you won't want to miss.
Then a few more photos of things I really liked from the boards, as well as some of my make & takes.
One of the demonstrations showed these canvas cuts - which are cream colored canvas pre cut and coordinated with rubons that look great! Look at the little canvas flowers with the brown patterns. One of the photos has a canvas cut with one of the corduroy buttons!!!
If you are a good blog reader you might notice some things - some park avenue patterns, some little martini glasses.. I'm just sayin..
The things with the white backgrounds are the Decor Elements.
Also, a few words - if you're an email subscriber, please hang in there with me for these few days of numerous posts - just hit delete for a few days - don't abandon me! I love you!
And second, a demo told me today at make & takes that she feels bad for subscribing to people's blogs as a demonstrator and not a customer. DO NOT FEEL BAD - I LOVE ALL MY SUBSCRIBERS and most of them are demonstrators - I have very few customers who subscribe! I love to teach and share, and you are welcome here in whatever form you take!
Finally, do not be discouraged if you are a demo but for whatever reason couldn't qualify for leadership this year. This is a cyclical business, and as I keep telling you, 2009 is going to be the year of handmade! Make it a great business, and remember that your enthusiasm for what YOU are doing is your most important asset. Just have fun and the rest will follow. I've had great years and terrible years, but I always loved creating, and so I'm still here. Hang in there.
If worse comes to worst - just take your shirt off and come to Orlando! :)
Oh - and PS - Jenn - I'm sorry you don't like birds - I think birds are the new cupcakes!! I love them! :)
More pics maybe later tonight, but for sure in the morning!!
Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)
