I had a great day yesterday! I spend the day at the Stamp Scrap Art Tour held in Oaks, PA. What a great time. The stamp/scrap show was held yesterday and continues today at the new Philadelphia Convention Center that is about 30 minutes outside of Philly. My good friend and I were there at around 11:00am and were still there at 5:00pm when the announcement was being made that it was over for the day. I love these shows. There is booth after booth of vendors with new products, new techniques and tried and true supplies that are almost impossible to get anywhere else. I couldn't find any paper quilling items , but I did find some new and interesting things. What I did realize is that if you are prudent and with a little planning, there are many interesting things you can do and NOT spend a fortune! I spent my budget on "supplies" that can be used over and over again; "supplies" that enhance what I already own. I have said it before, I am amazed at the talent, enthusiasm and creative spirit of paper crafters.
In today's world, no matter who we are, we are thinking budget and money. In the near future, I want to focus on budget conscious papercrafting. What techniques, what supplies allow our creative juices to flow and yet won't break the bank. My tips and techniques will be coming soon...
The cherry on the sundae yesterday was learning that my "Spring is in the Air" card was mentioned on "Card of the Week." http://www.cardoftheweek.com/ It is in the Easter Section of this week's review. You have to click through the section but it is there. A gal by the name of Susanna spends hours (I assume) going through all of our blogs and highlights cards each week. Check out her site. It is wonderful to see the creations. I thank Susanna for the shout out!
If you live in the Philadelphia area, check out the Stamp and Scrap Convention in Oaks today. It runs until 3:00pm. Check out "Card of the Week" it is a wonderful blog. I am making a promise to be better at commenting on blogs and cards our our favorite sites. I realized yesterday that there are so many talented people who work very hard at advancing our craft. It is important to acknowledge that hard work. I know it made me smile yesterday! For Now, Happy Crafting!
