Hello Creatives! Welcome to the last minute gift ideas hop! I don’t know about you but this time of the year get crazy busy for me! However I was very excited though to take a time out and do this blog hop! There are a ton of ideas for last minute gift ideas on this hop and today I am sharing not one but 6 projects for this last minute gift ideas hop! Starting with this art journal makeover! On Monday nights at 8pm CST I do a live broadcast on facebook!
Last Monday night I started off this art journal here’s the video of the live show if you want to check it out!
You should join us! Because it’s on FB you can type your comments questions and I can answer as I go – I can also alter my project depending on who is watching and your suggestions! Fun! So here are some other ideas that won’t take you very long for last minute gift ideas! (You may want to bookmark this site! )
Here are the other designers in the hop – oh did I mention that form the comments on the blog someone will win a $100.00 Visa gift card? Merry Christmas! Everyone is eligible to win, whether you’re in the U.S. or international.
In order to win leave a comment answering the question – “What is your favorite “can’t live without” craft supply or tool?” The winner of the $100 Visa gift card will be announced on einatkessler.com on Sunday, Dec 25th.
*Bonus! Take a look at my etsy shop and let me know what you think about my stencils!
I will be picking one winner from those who mention my stencils on this post for a free set of stencils on Thursday!
Happy hopping peeps!
Hey there crafty peeps! Whew so I am finally back from CHA! I hope you were able to see my periscopes while I was there – not as many as I would like because of the sketchy wifi in the convention center but I got a few in and a couple of videos. So here is a clean video (the periscopes that did work were very grainy thanks to the wifi) of my Designer Display, if you were there I hope you were able to see it in action but if not you can look at it now. The display got a great response and I was soooo happy that it worked like I thought it would. (You never know with these things!) Thank you for all my sweet peeps that wished me well! XOXO I would also like to thank Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®, DecoArts, Deflecto, DCWV and Beacon- all these companies provided wonderful products that went into my display and I am so honored to work with them! (Now if I could get a canvas and/or watercolor paper company to work with! )
If you were there I hope you got one of this years button, this is the third year I have done these buttons and I am super excited people actually came to find me to get one! On the left is this years apron – you know I cannot walk around wearing a plain apron! (Did you know that you can use PITT pens on fabric?) I spent a LOT of time working in the booth but I did get a little time to walk the floor – I will post those pictures this week so stay tuned!
You know I had to represent my Texas peeps by wearing my cowboy boots ya’ll! LOL
We had so much fun, everyone did a fantastic job!
Now that I am back and holidays and CHA are over it is back to business as usual – or the new usual, I will be kicking off a new DIY periscope series, adding more videos to my youtube channel and revamping my mixed media class newsletter. So if you aren’t following me please look me up.
As always the latest news will be on my FB page.
So the question of the day is what day and what time of day are you most likely to stop and watch a live video (periscope)? ((Please include your timezone!))
Happy crafting peeps!
