Tim's giving away new stuff!

Head over to Tim Holtz blog and comment to win some of his new products!!! He has a great video of his awesome booth as well as the Ranger booth. My first CHA was such a wonderful experience...from the dream of having some of my work in the BEST booth at the show (still wrapping my head around it all), to meeting lots of amazing people, to the new products in so many booths,,,,wow! there were times that I just wanted to pinch myself!!

I have so many to thank...ALL of you for your positive energy and encouragement has to be first! To my good friends Barrie, Carol, and Joy for all their help and support...they are invaluable to me!!! And of course I have to give a HUGE thanks to TIM Holtz for asking me to design for his booth. I was SO honored. His acknowledgement of my work...what can I leaves me speechless! Tim is as nice and genuine as everyone says! And Mario, well, he is a TOTAL sweetheart as well!

My journey in this world of paper is still at the beginning. I am excited to venture out into the unknown to see where my trail may go. One of my all time favorite quotes is from Ralph Waldo Emerson...

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail"

Thank you all for walking beside me on the paper trail....



  1. Laura you are leaving an amazing trail! You are a great source of inspiration and so generous in the sharing of your talent. I thank for meeting Tim I am sure that you were besides yourself..I would be!
    I think its great that your work has received recognition.

  15. Laura, you do a maize me. Just when I am just as thrilled as I can be with your ideas and creative skill, you come up with the IDEAL quote that says you are a leader in the craft world. I am very happy to "follow your trail"

  16. Oh yes, your creations are just blazing the trail.....I love them all....I can't believe how wonderfully you made that sewing box...and the mantel clock is totally awesome. I work in a little stamp store in Orange Co, Ca. and would love to make something like yours. Please write so we can discuss it further. If there is enough interest, I would love to teach a class. Do you travel? I know that you have young children at home, so that is why I asked?
