CHA and Catching Up!

WoW, I can't believe it is almost Feb, and I have been this far behind! 
 In December I did 3 shows before Christmas, and was looking forward to January for some Catch Up time.  Once January 1st hit, my store became super busy with flower and elephant pull toy orders, it was almost unbelievable how fast they were coming in! 
On top of all the excitement of business picking up, it was time to get creative on Graphic 45 projects for CHA using their fantastic new lines!!!
WHEW! 
Everything is now COMPLETELY caught up, including 2 boxes of goodies shipped to CHA containing:
2 Layouts
2 Altered Art Boxes
2 Tags
1 Altered Canvas
And I can't wait to get to share them with you!  Here are a couple insy sneaky peakies to wet your whistle!!!



Sorry, that's all the sneaky peakies for now, can't let the cat out of the bag too soon!!!
Lots more to come as CHA begins, and Graphic 45 begins sharing too!!

Here are the latest creations made either for special orders, or local retail stores! 

This was a special order Halloween box from a lovely individual who found me in Just Steampunk Magazine!!  She had inquired about a smaller version of the box that had been published.


 An altered book box depicting scenes from the Salem Witch Trials.  Created with my niece as a school project.  She got an A!


One of a collection of Altered Canvas's heading to shows, local stores and my online shop!


14x16 Mixed Media Collage
 Created with a friend and photographer, Johnnie King, for a local restaurant holding a design contest!
  Winners receive a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant, as well as art work chosen is painted on a HUGE brick wall for everyone to see!!
Winners to be announced at the end of the month...keeping my fingers crossed!

The last of the elephants have been made up and shipped out! 
Sadly, I only have one more remaining elephant in stock. 
 Unless I can find someone to create a 3 part mold to make more of these Cute little elephants, I will have to say good bye to these creations for good... 

This one was created for the top of a cake at a baby shower!  Made with super bright colors to match this amazing cake with only a few alterations...




Now that all my CHA projects are shipped, it's time to change focus to another Show!


Super excited about this one!  Should be a lot of fun!! 
Now off to work on projects for the show!


More CHA sneaky Peaks to come in the next few days, so stay tuned and enjoy all the excitement!!
Have an amazing weekend!
