Lorine and I and our good friend Eileen all made the trip to NYC. Lorine and I debuted the DivaSchmivas artwork and product and man did we make a splash!
Looks like our hardwork and perseverence is paying off. We made some wonderful contacts at the show and all I can add is that if everything goes the way we'd like it to we will have a very good year!
More about the show and what we saw coming your way very soon!

Well the countdown is on. Lists are being highlighted as we speak!
Artwork done - check
Posters made - check
Tools & such packed - check
Website updated - check
Highlights in hair - check
Wax upper lip - check
Nails done - check
Now the hard part begins - the packing of the clothing!
This is probably harder for me than anything else.
I'm one of those that changes outfits 6 times before I make up my mind.
Then there's the whole shoe, accessory thing.
Change one thing you can throw off the entire lot!
So I thought I'd make it easy on myself this trip. I'm wearing black!
Black and pink, black and peach, black with flowers, black and black.
I may even cut back to only 2 pairs of black shoes!
But seriously, Lorine and I have worked very hard to get to this place. To show what
we can do as artists, as a company, and as good friends. We hope you will all be thinking of us this next weekend as we embark on another Diva adventure. Please tell your friends to follow our blog and stay tuned for more news from New York!

What is better than a treasure chest full of pretty pink chocolate candies? Not much, except if the box was created using one of Eileen Hull's Scoreboard dies from Sizzix. A quick little project to send to a fellow designer who is having some health issues. She truly is the "stamping queen" and every queen needs a treasure chest full of goodies.
Supplies you will need:
Scoreboard die cut of rectangle box, Pink wool-blend felt, Steam-a-Seam fusible web, Melissa Francis molded keyhole, Silver metal bookplate with prongs, Microbeads, Screw top brads, Silver acrylic paint, Hole punch, Scissors, Paper glue and an Iron.
The How to:
Cover the die cut with Steam-a-Seam2, following the manufacturers instructions.
Remove the paper backing and cover with Pink wool felt. Press well and trim around the edges of the die cut.
Use the hole punch to punch holes through the felt,adding four additional holes to the front of the box and two to the bottom edge of the box along the back edge.
Fold the box along the scorelines and insert brads into the holes, attaching the lid.
Attach the bookplate inserting the prongs into the top of the box, bending the ends over to the inside of the box lid.
Fill the center of the bookplate with glue, drop microbeads into the glue and let dry.
Glue keyhole to the front edge of the box lid. Let dry. Add silver paint to the front of the keyhole.
Using the point of a pencil dipped into silver paint, add dots of paint to the front flap of the box. Let dry.
Fill up the box with chocolate goodies and present it to the person of your choice.
