Ok, I agree that is enough initials for a post title.
Wow, what a whirlwind. I hope you enjoyed yesterday's video post. Did you get a look at the Prima booth? It really was completely jammed with customers the entire time. I met several of the stores I'm teaching at in the coming months at the show and when asked about her impression of the Prima booth, she said, "That booth is just WRONG. I want everything they have!".
Today there is another video post, hosted by "Cropped!" virtual radio network, and hosted by Laura McCollough; owner of the kit club A Kiss on the Chic. I was hoping to link to it yesterday; but it hasn't gone live yet. Stay tuned to this page for the video feed; where I tour the Prima booth with them and show some favorite new products at the Prima booth. Laura had just gotten a phone call that her order of new Prima product was ready to be picked up at the warehouse. She almost couldn't contain the glee!
I also got to meet some of my favorite 'technique girls' in person for the first time, such as design team member, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and Prima Endorsed Artist-Educator, Nathalie Kalbach, who traveled all the way from Germany.
Ok, so as a technique girl, I wanted to point out some of my favorite releases. Until the video loads...
- The entire Innoscence line of flowers 'had me at Hello'. You know I like something I can color. This is just one of the styles.
- Placed directly underneath these flowers was the wonderful assortment of laces and ribbons. Also highly colorable and the new designs are breathtaking.
- The crystal and pearl swirls with tiny roses adorning the swirls... can I tell you how hard it was not to reach out with my Copic Marker and just touch those roses? How fun to customize to your project design!
- The canvas products from Donna Downey. Sharon's apron, featured in yesterday's video is just the tip of the iceberg. Boy are we going to have fun decorating those products in this space! Look at this sample that Donna Downey made...
- And last, but definitely not least, the PICturesque collection of Prima Paintables. These are specifically designed for use with Copic Markers and were featured in my make n take project. Here are just a few of these fun-to-color designs.
Well I am leaving on the jet plane this morning; and returning from sunny southern California to an apparent sudden snow squall in Connecticut. But during that long flight I'll be flipping through the new Prima catalog as I'm sure are many of the fabulous Prima Endorsed Artist-Educators... with visions of new classes dancing in our heads.
