  2. Oooooo, the Black Currant tree is unbelievably fantastic!!! I am going to have to make those ornaments this year. I have really been thinking of not putting up my traditional ones and just do an all paper ornament tree this year. I don't know if I have the stamina to make them all!

  34. very cool. I love the upside down tree. I did this in my dorm once, and let a bunch of silver & white balls hang down. It is reall cool. Not too much a fan of the deer head, but that red wallpaper/chair is gorgeous. I keep trying to zoom in on the "new products" in your pic and I can't see anything! Hopefully one of my local craft stores picks up my fav. line colorful life!

  70. I am so impressed with the decor of your booth! I didn't think you could top the dresses from last winter, but those trees are amazing! I look forward to seeing more pics!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ohhh, I don't think I could pick just one thing from that video that I liked. You've done an outstanding job with the both, I can't wait to get started on making my own scrappy trees.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Your booth is breathtaking, as usual! I worked at a major department many years ago, and your booth reminds me of the holiday window dressings done by professionals! And maybe I've been under a rock, but my very first "upside-down tree" was in a Wisconsin Christmas shop just a few weeks ago! How adorable! It is fitting for your beautiful papers!

    ReplyDelete
  73. WOW! Absolutely amazing. wish I could be there to see it all in person. Maybe one of these days I'll get to a CHA show.
