brrrr....and a sneak...

it is freaking freezing here in dallas. funny how the weather here can go from 65 F one day to 32 the next... i am cold. noah is cold. david is cold. the good news is that david and i are just down to coughing now from the sickness(es) and noah is down to his fake coughing... what is up with fake coughing? noah seems to have acquired this in the last month when he wants attention - he coughs til we look at him and coo over him.

my friend jess bought me a crop-a-dile (CAD) for christmas but i hadn't taken it out to use it til now. i will admit it is very MONSTER-ISH looking in the box - i mean david asked if it was some type of "medieval dental device" when he saw it. and the long page of instructions in tiny print on the back seemed to say to me that i needed to spend a little time getting to know this machine. and i just didn't have the time yet or the need yet...

well last night i really wanted to get some sneaks up so i decided to break into the CAD and see what the fuss over it was all about - why did i wait so long? soon i was punching holes into anything i could get my hands on! and look out all you forgotten eyelets and snaps of yore - your days are numbered!

so here is a sneak peek at something else we are releasing at CHA! are you ready:




it is sheers in paisley (in black, white and clear!) . i took some white and black ones and layered the different shapes to build a paisley of very cool styles! see how i set the eyelets and punched the holes?

we have a couple of other sheers coming out too but i can't share everything yet!

i also did a LO with some of our new rubons and ribbons. but i will show you the ribbons later this week - for now, check out how i used the rubons:

hope you all are having a wonderful day and i hope that i am inspiring you to create. even if it is only 10 mins - try something. you never know what you will create. and also don't be afraid of new things and new change, once you get over the hump, everything becomes a piece of cake.

Wow, great sneak peak. Everything looks so exciting.

I just bought a crop-a-dile because everyone has said how awesome they are but I hadn't opened it yet.

You have inspired me to do so - wish I had your new stuff to try it out on!! Can't wait.

LOL! I love the fake cough -- it is so cute when they figure that out.

The first thing that I did when I opened up my COD was punch holes in all the cans in my recycling box just to see how well it work....I love my COD.

Oh my....sheer paisleys....I think I am in heaven. I think I have to have another chat with my LSS.
