We are so close to hitting the 200 followers on our blog and we can not wait to hit that magic number and send one of you a Distezz-it-All !!! We are blessed to be one of your blog buddies and I am going to make it a priority to make sure we do more on the blog in the new year. The last half of this year has been an adjustment period for both Barrie and I. We have teamed up with Following The Paper Trail and in that time our business has exploded and for this we are so very thankful. We are almost transitioned over to having all of the products in one place so that we are able to ship everything in one package, but there are still a few things that Barrie will be sending until her inventory is depleted and we have it all here in Washington. We love being able to send a personal touch with each order. and from the comments we have gotten, you all seem to like it too. We will continue to do that no matter how busy we get. That is who we are and just what we do.
We have also finalized our arrangements for attending CHA in January and we are all so excited. Laura, Barrie And I will be on the hunt for all the great new products that will be there. We will be doing daily updates while we are there, and I do believe that Laura is planning on doing some kind of show from there too. There is always so much to see, make and takes to do, and new companies to discover !! I think I just may go and pack my bags now.
I have been working on a few more Christmas gifts and for my Oldest son I have made him a canvas that has pictures of him and his kids out hiking and fishing. He took them to the place that we always went camping when he and his brother were young. I think he will like it, although it is simple and not too ornate
I used a large canvas, sprayed it with Several of the Perfect Pearls mists (hard to see that) and then inked the edges with Ranger Distress ink, I backed the photos, which are printed out on Bazzill Paper& inked the edges with distress ink , onto black chipboard to give it some dimension, and then sprayed the chipboard letters with Perfect Pearls mist and inked those edges as well. The Trees are a Sizzix die cut, and they are sprayed with Glimmer Mist and Maya Mist, and then covered with crackle paint. The stick is one that they brought back from their hike and it is attached using hot melt glue. I think it looks very rustic and fits the pictures too !!
So, that is another one of my Christmas Projects and I can not wait for him to open it !!
We hope you are all doing well and that your taking time to enjoy the magic of the Christmas Season
Blessings to you all
Carol & Barrie
