I never thought I would be a "blogger" but I guess it's time to jump in on the Buzz! Just to catch you up a bit ..... I recently attended the CHA Winter Trade show in Aneheim, CA. This is THE trade show of the year where all the latest and greatest of craft products are debuted!

I work at the AMACO booth - the Fimo people. This year my latest Book Bead Techniques was launched and I demonstrated several techniques from it to people from all over the world. I also had the privelege of meeting attendees from Japan, England, Ireland and Australia just to name a few who attended my workshops.

One of the highlights of the show is our Designer's Challenge. This time it was opened up to anyone who wanted to participate and submit a bottle for the BOTTLES OF HOPE challenge. To find out more about this organization, click on the link. You'll soon find out why it is near and dear to my heart. We received 80 bottles from 39 different artists. These bottles ultimately will be donated to an upcoming CAMP TEEN RAINBOW. The teens that attend this camp have either had or currently undergoing treatment for insideous cancer. My daughter will be attending and together we will be teaching a "Bottles of Hope" workshop to the teens for them to donate their own bottles. There will be another of these challenges at the CHA Summer show in July. Please email me if you are interested in participating (the photo courtesty of AMACO shows the winners of the challenge.
