CHA UPDATE: I was not voted into the nomination committee, but wanted to thank everyone for their votes and support! I'll try again next year ((((grins))). BeckyC

I am seeking a seat on the Craft and Hobby ASSN (CHA) Nominating Committee.
There are 22 members nominated and only 5 seats.

Our most important duty will be to vote for sitting members of the CHA Board at the summer show. I am a Designer, and an instructor of papercrafts and mixed media art. Designing and Teaching have become my small business. I would like to see representation on the CHA Board for the small business, for the artist and Designer and this is why I seek the position.

A perfectly balanced committee might look something like this:
1. big business
2. small business or Scrapbooking
3. stamp co/retailer
4. designer/teacher (ME!)
5. publication/marketing

If you are a voting member of CHA, Please cast your vote today!

It's Official!! 2007 Spellbinders DT! and DragonFlaire excitement

I've had a secret for 3 months! LOL whew, so happy to share it with you now.

I have been invited to join the 2007 Spellbinders Design Team!! I'm so excited about all of the wonderful things to come this year, look for a brand new Wizard Academy at your LSS with gorgeous projects designed especially for the Wizard!

They are taking me to CHA Jan 26-Feb4, CHA ends 1/31 but we will have three days of training and certification w/ the team and then one day at Disney!

MORE EXCITING STUFF AT DRAGONFLAIRE TOO! My work with the Isabella kit is featured on the blog in a card contest!

This is a 5 1/2-inch square gated opening card made from a digital kit by printing the digital papers onto photo paper. Digital kits have great papers! If you find yourself searching forever for that perfect paper and it's not out there, you might just find it in a digital kit!

Card Contest $50 Winner!!

This is just so very funny and goes to show you, take the time to submit!! I almost didn't even have time to make holiday cards and I threw this simple design together with a week to spare. I made a ton of them using hand made papers that I had done long ago, some were made recently with Ranger color washes and then I used scrap papers in strips to make a 12 x 4" that I cut into triangles for the trees. A brass star, a bow and some Krylon spray webbing, a little bit of glitter and viola!! a gorgeous 2nd place winning card!

In my spare time surfing the web I came across the Green Sneakers site that was having a holiday card contest, I quickly created a matching envelope and loaded it, not giving it another thought until Barbara Eastwick emailed me tonight to tell me I WON 2ND PRIZE! The first prize winner was AMAZING.
check out their blog for all winners and there is a link to the gallery so you can see all the entires.
