Plus…you will leave with a handout of techniques to use immediately on your next big idea!

*************HOLIDAY SNOW OWLS****************
Last year, I posted these Holiday Snow Owls I made using my big Holiday Kit sold on QVC. I have gotten so many hits on this blog because of these, I thought I'd run it again! Here is the link to the downloadable pdf so in case you missed it, here you go.
These make great little hang tags for gifts or ornaments, as shown. Have fun! Send me pictures!
My buddy Melissa is having a give-away this weekend. If you're a fan of pugs, like our family is, or just a fan of dogs or little dolls...this is so cute. She made the pug art using block printing techniques then had it reproduced onto fabric via Spoonflower, a new print on demand textile source. Here's a snapshot of her pug doll...
OK, here it is! After many requests, I'm finally posting the owl pattern, just for you! I broke it up into 3 pages to print on a standard printer, but the main owl set up works with a 12" x 12" paper. The beak and eyes are cut from scraps of different papers.
I want to send out a huge thank-you to my friends in the U.K. and beyond!!! I had such a great time and am so appreciative of the response to my first ever appearance on QVC and to all of our new products! We made soooooo many models and were not able to show most of them due to time restraints but I will be posting some photos in the coming weeks and hope that you will find inspiration from them.
