At the beginning of the month, I posted about this Year of Change Challenge that I was asked to participate in this month by my lovely friend Amy. It was super fun to participate and really push myself to do something that I don’t normally do which is DIY art.

My favorite one is the “Crafters Gonna Craft” pillow. I designed the image, and the vinyl was so easy to use, and it looks AMAZING.

I don’t think I’ve really posted very much about this, but I designed a party line along with My Mind’s Eye Paper Goods several months ago. We debuted at the NSS2014, but product is just barely hitting retailers.

There are banners, fans, confetti, wrapping paper, tassle banners, and more! It’s been so fun to design party supplies, I can’t wait to design even more for a second release.

Last night, I heard from one of my friends at the Steals.com Network that they were going to have an awesome and super-discounted deal TODAY ONLY (till 9pm MST) with some of the party supplies from the line.

So check them out and see if there is something you might want for your next big shindig! there is some really gorgeous stuff and it’s even more gorgeous in person. These pictures show off some of the fun glitter and gold foil.
