Happy New Year!

I hope you all have a very crafty New Year!  If you don't have a hobby that is fun and satisfying to you, it's never to late to start.  There's something out there for everyone.

And, speaking of crafts and creativity, I'll be heading to Phoenix this month for Creativation.  This is the new name of the Craft and Hobby Association trade show that has been located in Anaheim for the last few years.  It promises to be a great time with lots of wonderful new ideas and products to view.  And, we'll have the city of Phoenix to explore.

This year I will be teaching a Make and Take in the Creativation Café.

So, if you are going to the show, stop by and say hi!  I'll be teaching a variation of this wrapped cuff bracelet:

For those of you not going to the show, I'll be sharing my Make and Take later in January with some show pics.

The Designer Section of CHA will be Sharing the Creative Heart(TM) on Sunday, the 22nd.  Participating designers are making a heart-inspired art piece and hiding it somewhere on the show floor for others to find and keep!  My plan is to make a pair of heart-inspired earrings - so keep an eye out on Sunday if you are walking the show!

And, a couple of my etched snowmen ornaments will be hanging around the etchall booth.  Etchall is new to the show this year, so stop by and find out about this amazing product at Booth #627 and try it out with a free Make and Take.

Hope to see you at the Creativation show!  Keep on creating!
