CREATIVATION - LAST DAY

So as you can see my week got away from me and I didn't have time to post the last stuff from my Creativation adventure. So I am going to post it now! The last day was again spent on the show floor and I really had a blast. Matt, Queenie, Leona and I really just had the most amazing time!


One of the first things I did on the last day was take one more class, this time with one of my favourite new companies, Stamperia. I just LOVE everything they make - they are gonna put a SERIOUS dent in my wallet with all their new goodies. Of course it didn't hurt that the instructor, Antonius, is pretty easy on the eyes!! 



Above is my canvas at the end of class, and below is how I finished it when I got home
(thanks to inspiration from my pal KC)


I of course had to take a photo of another of Antonius's projects he had on display in the booth.
Needless to say, I LOVE his style!!


I also got to meet a whole bunch more cool crafty folks, so have lots more pics with them


Was so excited I got to meet Amber from the show Makin' It. She was SUPER nice!!







This last lady is the gal who taught the Make N' Take at the Stampers Anonymous booth - you
KNOW Leona and I just HAD to do that one!!


One of the highlights of the day though was I got to watch a Tim Holtz demo IN PERSON - so
much cooler than just watching it on YouTube!!


I also took a quick video of the Prima booth for my gal pal Cindy!


My pal Candy was participating in a cool event on this day too - a bunch of designers made little ATC's and hid them throughout the show floor. If you found them you got to keep them. I asked Candy for a hint since I wanted to make sure I got one. It pays to be friends with these amazing people - she just gave me one!! How cool is that?!?!


Got to see lots more throughout the day. I am sure I didn't hit it all, but here are some more shots from around the show floor.











Of course, then it was time to head back to the hotel and get myself ready to go home. BOO. I was actually kinda overwhelmed and exhausted, so kinda ready to head home! Wasn't sure I would get everything in my bag, but I managed!!



I made it to the airport with all my crafty crap!!


And even had time for a nice supper before my flight home!



I have to say this was one of my CRAZIEST crafty adventures to date! I would love to go again - I really hope I get the opportunity to do that. I hope you like all my posts and keep following me! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY - to me!!


Got some fun happy mail today so considering them Valentine's gifts! I got my altered pocket watch from my partner in Australia - and I just LOVE it!! The theme was Alice in Wonderland and she made me the cutest watch. It is already hanging in my craft room. I know she got hers as well and said she loved it, so all in all a very successful swap!



I also got my Valentine's card from another swap I was in. Unfortunately my partner hasn't gotten hers yet, but she should have it early next week. I am hoping the goodies I added make up for it not getting there before Valentine's Day. I loved the one she made me though!


I am looking forward to getting some more swaps as I know some of my partners have sent me stuff. I also have a few more of my own to finish and get in the mail, so  till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

Had to do some shopping today to support one of my crafty pals and her newest adventure. My pal Candy Rosenberg has started a line of vintage items that she is selling in her shop - A Vintage Girl Shop. And of course since her style and mine are pretty much the same, you know I HAD to do some shopping!! I cannot WAIT to get all my goodies. And I was her first international customer!!!


I am so excited!!! I cannot wait to play with it all - and of course I will post pictures. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

I forgot to post about the happy mail I got yesterday! I ordered some fun new pencil crayons on the advice of another crafty pal Matt - you have to check him out at Mr Matt Mixed Media.


Of course I have NO idea when I will get to play with them as I am SOOOOOO busy at work this week. But I guess that is the price I have to pay to have all the time I do for all my crafty stuff. LOL So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

It was SO COLD this weekend than I just HAD to craft since there was no way I was going out in the coldness. I had a couple of swaps to work on - and I had to finish putting away the rest of my goodies from Creativation weekend. I did get the goodies put away, and did a bunch of work on one swap. I don't have it done but here are some sneak peaks of what I have done so far.






I hope my partner likes it when it is all done. I am pretty happy with how it is coming along so far! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

CREATIVATION - Day 3 (Last Class)

I ended up taking one more class - my pal Matt convinced me to and I am SO glad he did. It was a Geo Painting class - very similar to paint pouring. I really loved it. The teacher was amazing and I was so thrilled with my finished painting. Here are some pictures from the class!


More fun supplies


And Matt made a new friend - they helped set up the class!


First step of the class was putting down the crystals


Then we started with all the layers. It was amazing how it came together






I really LOVED this class - for a change I loved my project all the way through. 
And the teacher was so fun!!



And we made another Canadian friend!


Another very successful day! Of course, we had to finish off the day with more yummy food - though this time we decided to stick close to the hotel as we were SO tired!! We found a cool place across the street, and I even got to take some photos of the gallery next to it for my niece who has a love for skulls!! She thought they were pretty cool.







Day 3 was just as great as the first two days - though at this point I felt like my brain was on overload!! Can't wait to show you the last day! Till then, stay crafty my peeps!
