All good things!!

This is a long post today - BUT TRUST ME... it will be worth reading to the end!!

It's life's little moments that take your breath away....

One of the things I LOVE about CHA are the displays. They are so inspiring. "Life Moments" was part of a display I snapped at the Advantus booth. Advantus is the company that manufactures the Tim Holtz Ideaology line. Stunning! And yes, the papers I mentioned in an earlier post are even yummier in person. Can't wait to get them in ... I digress...

This year the Ranger Booth was all decked out in Melt Art (See..... yet another fabulous display)

I showed you Carmi's Designer challenge.... I thought you might like to see Tim, Claudine and Suze's pieces. Here they are.... Aren't they stunning and true to their styles!? Hard to believe they were given a box of the same stuff to do this... Isn't it?

And here is a picture of the wall with all the displays -- Scrapbookers may recognize Donna Downey & Jen Starr (I think you'll be able to see theirs if you click on the image below)

The Ranger booth is also always buzzing with demos by their artists.

OMG, Tim had an entourage if at least 15 - 20 people constantly when walking from place to place... and at least that crowding tables to see him work. No, I did not follow him around. :) He is the master marketer though. Kuddos Tim!!

Tim played with all his new stuff. Let's just say the inks are yummy and I am sooooooooooo glad that I have a sizzix machine. There are oodles of ideas running through my brain. It's hard to sleep! LOL
As you know, I am also getting Wendy Vecchi's stamps in the studio this release. Here is Wendy, caught ( a little) offguard, demoing away....

But back to the displays... wowsers!! :) LOVE LOVE LOVE this. hehe

Today is Tuesday.... soooooo for ASK KAREN.... How about a little of what's coming in? That is, after all, THE question people have been asking.

I am SURE there is no surprise that I will be bringing in the 12 New Distress Ink Colours. They are GORGEOUS!!

And I will be getting all of the stamps from Wendy Vecchi that are found on her BLOG post except the words set.
Tim Holtz IDEAOLOGY will hopefully be shipped in March .... I am getting the entire line including his Paper Stacks!!

As will the NEW PERFECT PEARL colours!! CAFE!!

Yes, I will be getting the entire Tim Holtz "Alterations" line too ....but by PRE-ORDER ONLY. This is not something that I will be regularly carrying. I will, however, be getting this in for use in the Studio (and for my own personal use and classes) and will get it in by request too. Sooooooooo..... Look for a pre-order email soon -- there just might be some good "deals" in it. *wink* The expected ship date is MARCH/early April.

I also got in some fun canvas pillows to make art with. Some stretched burlap to play with and some some findings too.... perfect for jewelry making and mixed media projects...... Just wait until you see!!! Eeekkk... so exciting!

Well.... I think I have just about had it for the day (I need sleep! This red eye thing is for the birds - hehe ... but sooooooooooooooooooo worth it!!)

WAIT!! Hold the fort!! I have to post my ONE WORLD - ONE HEART give-a-way... I'll try to do that this evening ....EARLY this evening! LOL

Thanks for sharing my excitement with me!!
