A little bit of this and that...

I have a few interesting things to share with you today.

First, I want to let you know about an event in New York City next month.  Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia will be holding their annual holiday craft sale which is held in the company's creative headquarters.  Members of the Crafts team offer their handmade gifts for holiday shopping.  The sale date is December 4th.  I think it would be fun to attend and see all of the crafts and meet some of the craft designers.  Maybe I'll "need" to go see our son at college that weekend!

There is a contest to choose three lucky crafters to be vendors at the sale.  You can get all of the information HERE.  Submissions are due by Friday, November 5th at noon.  What a fabulous opportunity to have your work seen by thousands of people and kick start a crafting career!  (Just promise to remember the rest of us when you make it big!).  You can check out photos from last year's show HERE (The bird image above is from the contest page - isn't it clever!)

I have mentioned my brother's blog, The Oz Enthusiast, which is about all things Oz a few times.  While his business is making stained glass lamps and windows at Century Studios, he is an avid collector of Oz books and illustrations.  On Monday he posted about a great project. - a book of the Wizard of Oz made featuring Riley and Company stamps.  You can read his post HERE and when you go there you will find the link to see the book.  You can find more information about the stamp sets HERE.  The stamps feature Riley and Sophie dressed in many costumes - maybe I need to get a few of these to use to practice coloring with the ProMarkers.

Speaking of the ProMarkers, did you have a chance to visit Enfys and see her cards and tutorials?  She'll be posting them all week and you can enter to win a full set of 148 ProMarkers generously donated by Letraset.  If you have been wanting to try these markers this is a great opportunity for one lucky winner - maybe you!  This LINK will take you to Enfys' blog,  Going Buggy

Finally, I was away most of the day Tuesday so I wasn't able to test cut some of the designs I showed you last week.  There is one more preview of a snowflake I created at the top of this post.  Can you guess which cartridge I used?  I hope to have some crafty time Wednesday so I will be able to post a few finished projects made with my "doodle designs" soon.

  1. I made it to Enfys site. What great tutorials. Now I'll have to check out your brother's site. Have a great evening!

  2. I believe that you used the new Winter Lace cartridge to design your snowflake. Can't wait to see if I was right or not! I'm new to your blog and loving all the great ideas. Thank you.
