Easy Tags for your luggage and studio organization

This month the challenge was on, we received a box of goodies that I really had to put my thinking cap on. Since I am not a paper crafter my mind doesn't usually think this way but I wanted a way to utilize paper in my designs so I decided to create some tags. First I created a luggage tag using the Deflecto flexible pouches, it was super easy to do and you can create them to go with your luggage or to stand out so you can easily spot it as it comes down the conveyor belt. Of course my luggage is a little colorful anyway but I think the tag stands out even better because of it.

We received these wonderful organizational bins that I adore but if I cram a lot of things in there it can be harder to find things and let me tell you I am a crammer.LOL So I thought why not create some tags to label each bin. These super grip sign holders are just that when you stick them to something they are not coming off easily which I love!

I have to say my favorite new thing is being able to see my stencils and hanging them makes it so easy to find what I am looking for. To see more details on all of the products I used please visit Deflecto's website at

Come on an adventure with us, a polymer clay adventure that is...

In case you haven't heard about the first ever polymer clay and mixed media adventure called polymer Clay Adventure I want to share a little about how it has come together. Over a year ago Kira my business partner and I decided we wanted to host a retreat that anyone, anywhere in the entire world with access to a computer could attend. Let's face it retreats can be expensive, with travel, the cost of the retreat, babysitters, time off from work and the family etc. can really set you back a pretty penny. We wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the community aspect where everyone gets to know each other and to be able to learn from their favorite artists without breaking the bank.

 After a ton of planning which is still going on we were able to pull it off.we gathered 22 super talented artists together from all over the world and will be introducing the first year long retreat which you can attend from the comfort of your home. There will be 2 new classes every month, there will be interviews and pajama parties and live chats and demos and so much more! This is going to be some serious fun! You will get all 24 classes and all of the events for only $99. I know that sounds impossible but it's true, we have far exceeded our expectations and as of this writing we have almost 500 people from all around the world attending. The event doesn't kick off until January 1,2015 so we expect there will be many more people joining us.

 So how do we think we can pull it off? Kira and I met online 8 years ago and we have never lived closer than 350 miles form each other almost everything we have done we have done virtually. We have learned the ins and outs of producing online video, communicating online, chatting and recording video online and so on. We have learned what works and what doesn't, we have learned how to make things user friendly and easily accessible, we have learned the best way to communicate and share online and now we are sharing it with the world. Don't get me wrong it's a huge undertaking but we have no doubts we can do it and do it great! Heck I think the hardest thing so far was convincing the teachers that we could pull it off. We are so happy many of them could see our vision and decided to join us. We know it will be an amazing adventure. So how can you join us?
Hop on over to and you can read all the details, we even have videos you can watch too. It will definitely be a year of creative inspiration and we hope you will join us. Hope to see you on the adventure!
