New York City - March 2012

When Elizabeth and I went to NY City to visit with Katharine I insisted on going to The Ink Pad.  If you are ever in NYC you NEED to go to the Ink Pad. I have never seen so many wonderful products in such a small space.  The atmosphere in the store reminds me of the magic shop you see in the Harry Potter Movies.  Katharine in front of the store.

While I was there I made some wonderful purchases.  I bought 3 stencils from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's new stencil line.

And these packages of Art Parts from Studio 490 caught my eye.  This is a new company for me.  
Art Parts are thick paper board surfaces (aka chipboard//but much stronger).  I plan on using them 
in a mixed media project.  

Then I saw this cute package of little girl clothes from Christy Tomlinson.  I have taken a few of Christy's classes on-line and I really enjoyed them.  I did not think that I would like on-line classes
but I really do.

I love stamps and this package of dylusions from Ranger put a smile on my face.  Little did I know that the following week I would be taking a class from Dyan Reavely, Ranger's newest designer.  In class we did a couple of pages in an altered book project ... which was lovely because I have been wanting to start an altered book.

I think my blog is now updated.  I am liking this blogging thing.

I did not make the Little Yellow Bicycle Designer Team.  But I will be trying to get on a design team.  I am ready for the challenge.
