Just Love Graphic 45

I have had the most amazing 3 days in Brisbane. I got to meet Diane and Aimee from G45. Two truly beautiful and generous people. I can't express how honoured I am to be on their design team. They had the best booth at the event, and the projects and displays they brought, were out of this world. It was lovely to spend so much time with them both and to hear how the company got started and where it is going. I am delighted to be able to work for them. They brought my book back with them, I got quite emotional holding it again. It was great to see the interest it created. I also had the fun of showing it to Lynette Caroll (one of my Hero's). Dianne is going to arrange for my book to be published in an American magazine! They also found a space for some of my layouts to be displayed on their booth. It was so funny to have people wanting to have their photo taken with me. I met Ladies from our two Aussie scrapbooking magazines who want me to send work to them . Diane has some work for me to do, which I will share later on, so its all happening and all thanks to Graphic 45!
Nat is doing a post of our time in Brisbane on the shop blog tomorrow. I will put some more photos on my blog tomorrow.
thanks for looking
PS In the second photo of Aimee, to the right of the photo is one of my books. This one is titled Norm and is one I made for my Dad.

Too much Creativity

I always have the urge to move things around after I have done a big project. I'm not sure why. I put it down to having some creativity left over. It drives the staff mad as I end up shifting the shop around. With 4 days off over Easter, it was a too greater opportunity to miss. So I shifted the shop around. I wish I had taken a photo of how it looked when I left it tonight. The shop part looks great, workroom not so good, with every flat surface covered with stuff. I hoping the fairy's work over time tonight. So Kathy and Nat I know what you are doing tomorrow! The good news for all of my customers, is that I have a table of embellishments, stickers and rubons with 40% off. I also have 12 racks of paper for $0.50, $0.80 and $1.00 per sheet. Sale starts Tuesday 9am until sold out.
