Hello Sugar addicts and blog readers.
I have something exciting to share with you today, what is more exciting than a new artist!
You know my eye's are for ever on the look out for new talent, some one who has already created
their characters in a style that is completely their own. Characters that I know that stamper would love
to spend time colouring and sweet enough to join our family here at the House Of Sugar.
Today I share with you, our new discovery.
Carla Chaves is a lovely girl from Portugal and you can pop over and see her work on etsy or more about what she loves on her blog. Carla will work with us to bring you great new art to compliment you creative style.
Carla has illustrated four of her RIBONITA character's for Sugar Nellies March release and other's are to follow.
I would be delighted if you want to leave me a comment as to what characters you would like to see made into stamps, you know that Sugar Nellie is small enough to listen and big enough to do something about it.
I am sure Carla would also appreciate a warm welcome from our followers as this is a field which is new to her, lets show her what amazing creations our sugar addicts can make from her art work.
I ain't going to show you any peeks because the DT will do a far better job than I can, not long now and you can see for yourself how cute these girls are going to be as stamps.
Yesterday I should have been at the NEC with others in a Tim Holtz class but sadly I will not be able to attend the trade show this year and also miss my class. But my good friend Erika is down there and I am sure she will keep me in the loop as to whats new and hot. Got to love craft shopping. I know that there are many new released from our favourite companies and our store will soon have plenty of great ideas that we can teach and display in store.
For now I will settle myself by opening my cases from my trip to USA and all my lovely craft goodies that I can not get here. I am still waiting for my craft caravan to be sited so that I can move in and start to play. Keeping my fingers crossed that it might be done tomorrow but we have snow again and it's really cold, I don't want to move away from the real fire and I don't blame the others for staying warm and cozy inside either.
A mystery parcel arrived for me at the HOS, some chocolates but I know not from whom they came?
A card said "enjoy the experience", nothing more as to who kindly sent some chocolate my way.
Mystery chocolate lover, I thank you very much for my gift.
I had Megan at work today and did not open them as I would have been obliged to share with my hungry 9 year old and one of my favourite sayings from the film Matilda.................much too good for children.
You all stay warm and take care
