Wow! I have had a crazy two weeks. While I last posted that Christian was doing better, we still ended up having an additional couple of hard days dealing with his anxiety which caused him to continue to not eat and throw up at times. It has been one of the worst experiences of my life, particularly watching him suffer from something that wasn't being caused by any true physical condition anymore. Finally on Thursday we had our first "normal" day and night and all has been well since, although I am having trouble getting him back to the reality that he will not get everything he asks for anymore nor will be eat pizza every night! Noah's birthday is tomorrow so it is nice timing for some focus to be on him since this has all definitely taken a toll on him as well. He wanted to see Men In Black 3 so we did that last night and loved it. Good thing I'm not really into sappy movies because I never getting to see them with a house full of boys!
So we are off to Texas this week! Headed to Arlington for the Great American Scrapbook Convention. I am not teaching this year but will be doing a Make-And-Take in the booth each day from 11:00 - 1:00. It is this adorable mini book where we will be playing with German Glass Glitter and my new Fiskars Punches with a little stamping thrown in . . .
Cost for the Make-And-Take is $10 and if you are attending, you can sign up ahead of time for your 30 minute time period in the booth. We will also have the kits available which come with full color instructions.
We have doubled our booth space this year so that means more room for some really great JBS deals, kits and vintage supplies and decor! Here's a little preview of what has been on my table waiting to be priced. . .
I have also been busy making some charms out of some of my favorite vintage finds. I have not offered these before, so we shall see! You will be able to purchase the charms separately from several available chains (that way you can choose the chain you like or just add the charm to one you already have).
I have such a HUGE collection of supplies right now in my studio so it was about time that I tried to put them to good use. This is what I did on the nights CJ was sick - I just couldn't sleep.
We are also gearing up for a big sale on some classic JBS products on the website as well as some really cool vintage additions to the flea market for the first (look for several new antique and vintage drawers in all shapes and sizes for your studio storage)!
More on that as we get closer. Have a great holiday weekend!!
