From the PoppyStamps blog, here is a sweet Valentine's card using sequins for the shaker card. The oval frame is the perfect time to use the Stick It! adhesive sheets created for exactly this kind of intricate die.

On the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog, Frances has used a "throw-back" technique of hers using lace and the Micro Fine Silk Glitter.

The CHA Show closes this afternoon at 2 p.m., so I'm off. I tried to post pics last night, but a slight technical difficulty combined with falling asleep 'at the wheel' worked against the posting. I'll leave you with this thought . . .

Me pointing to Seth Apter (l)
Seeing Seth Apter at the IMAGINE Crafts' booth was the highlight at the end of my 'yesterday.' Not only is he one of the nicest people  on this planet that you'd ever meet, Seth is an exceptionally talented artist from New York City. I had the fun of taking a class from him last year at CHA. Since that time, he's taught and traveled in Australia, all across our country, and will be teaching in the United Kingdom this spring.

We were talking and . . . Art 'n Soul Journal Club and Mixed Media artisans, are you ready for this? Seth is going home to NYC next week to re-check his schedule with the intent of trying to work in a class at Art 'n Soul later this spring. So, we're pointing to each other in the photo because we want to make it a point that Art 'n Soul should be on his teaching schedule this year! Let's all pray the stars align.

In the meantime, enjoy going to Seth Apter's website and blog . . .
