Guess What ?!?!?!

I have BIG, BIG news to share and I am sooooo excited!
*I* was selected to be a member of the CREATIVE PAPERCLAY ® modeling material *DESIGN TEAM*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WooooooHoooooooo!!!
Oh yeah, oh yeah, I’m happy, woohoo!
I have known for TWO WEEKS and it has been SO hard to keep the secret until the announcement was made 😀 Today my silence is broken and I am thrilled! Each month, for the next six months, I will be posting a tutorial for a project I have created using Creative Paperclay ®. The first of these posts will be up in mid-November and I already have an idea in mind that I think will be perfect 🙂
I have listed the rest of the Design Team in my blogroll so you can visit each of their blogs as well 🙂
I have been crafting my tooshie off for the past two weeks and I have some pretty awesome (if I do say so myself, LOL) projects to share.
First, my Halloween village is fully set up and it looks AMAZING!
I have a ceiling fan above the table the village is sitting on and because the people are on card stock tabs, they move in the breeze which makes them even creepier 😀
Another project I worked on this week was a captured skeleton. I saw a tutorial on youtube a few weeks ago and I *had* to make one 🙂
The crafter in the tutorial had an AWESOME little light bulb that seemed *impossible* to find! After driving all over town, a few Google searches and one month of looking, I FINALLY found one at Michael’s. There are two kinds to choose from, one in the wedding department and one in the floral department. The bulbs in the wedding dept are blinking only and are made to be put in balloons. The ones in the floral dept are steady on, and they are submersible! I tell you all of this because I had a HELL of a time finding them and hope to make your search easier 🙂
I am also arting along with the contestants on the show Work of Art (Bravo.) The first challenge was to turn a piece of kitschy art into something cool. I found this little geisha at the thrift store and turned her into a Goddess. You can watch the full tutorial here on youtube.
Yet ANOTHER project (and DEFINITELY the biggest!) I have been working on this week is my son’s 11 birthday party. He wanted a Lego themed party and Lego Napoleon cake. I have made several cute cakes before and although I am NO expert, I have to say, this is probably my best and favorite one yet!
See! I told ya I’ve been busy! 😀
This week will have me finishing up Christopher’s Halloween costume, (Napoleon Bonapart) working on the next Work of Art prompt and who knows what else 😀
As for today’s agenda, a trip to Toys R Us and writing a marketing paper are top priority.
Have a great weekend!
