Winners, Photos, Updates and More…


I am home from my long weekend at The Collins Group rep show. This is a show Hero Arts goes to every year where we get to teach store owners. And I love it. Seeing the same sweet faces year after year… chatting with my favorite stores (including Absolutely Everything, Buffalo Stamps, Angela’s Happy Stampers, Wiggles and Giggles and many more)… laughing with fellow industry folks… I love it all. Shari, Todd (Hero VP) and I had so many really good laughs. REALLY heart-warming good laughs and I am so thankful for them.

Our make and take…

Todd can imitate Charlie Sheen so well. He kept saying Shari and I were his goddesses. Winning…

Hero Arts co-taught an all day class with Sizzix at this show. And it was such a great collaboration! Many said it was the best class ever… teaming up die cutting, stamping and inking. I have been dreaming of making a cluster of hoops to hang on a wall (kinda like THIS) and this was the perfect class to try it. Each student made five hoops and here is a peek at two of them…

Winners? I have winners. I emailed you all…

I will be back soon with a card share. Off to play with the little guy – he is on spring break this week. Take care!

    Lucky you Spring Break already!!!!! My break isn’t until April 16th!!!! Seems a million years away…..but lucky & crazy me I”m going to Paris with 35 students…….not exactly a vacation, but it will be a blast. I love watching their faces when the see the Eiffel Tower for the first time. Some of them actually scream and squeal :-) & they are 17 & 18 years old!

  20. Debbie

    Congrats to the winners! and I love the idea of a video on the hoops too…

    BTW – I have a friend that is working on her very first scraproom & was wondering what type of pens should she invest in? I have Marvey & Tombows just becasue that was available when I started making cards years ago & they work for me. She is more into scrapbooking so I don’t think she really needs to buy Copic markers. Zigs perhaps?

    What do y’all think?

  21. ahhhh…. looks like super fun classes!! enjoy your day! =)

    Thank-you for the “hoops” inspiration and your Tim Holtz “frame” inspiration!

    Regarding the bird cage hoops “background paper”… would you kindly share the mfg. of the paper? It’s absolutely yummy.
