|This was an apron I decorated in our booth at CHA. Tar’Lese, our trade show manager found it and returned it to me!|
When you work for a craft company, you never know what the day will entail! I spent the week in Fresno at iLoveToCreate and I snapped pictures of objects that came across my desk. It’s fun working in the creative arts industry! Click below to see all the images – there is a giveaway at the end!
This was one of my Enid Collins purses I had brought a long time ago and found in the storage room. When we were first developing the Crafty Chica line in 2007, one of my ideas was a program of blank bucket purses with solid images that you would then embellish with gems, glitter and 3D paint. In my MISS SCARLET book, I have a character who makes purses like these, so I’ll be doing a tutorial on a project like this soon!
We had a workshop on “Creativity and Innovation” and how to incorporate it into daily decision making. It was a really fun class! We each received a blank journal and art supplies and were encouraged to decorate it while we took notes. I love that my employer values the power of creativity in the workplace!
I have a big storage cabinet at my desk and I cleaned it out, something I’ve been meaning to do for the new year. I found this painting!
