Hi and welcome to the Autumn-Winter 2013 New Product Blog Hop....I'm so happy you could join use! Grab your favorite beverage of choice and have fun soaking up all this yummy work.
This year I was very honored to be selected by Close To My Heart to be a guest presenter during Friday morning's General Session at Convention in Orlando, Florida.....and as part of that honor I was provided a preview of each and every new product in the 2013 Idea Book, in May! Everything that is except the new Cricut Artbooking Cartridge...although I knew about it...they had others to present that fabulous item.
Today I'm going to show you each item I made for Convention and a few I made once I got home. It took me a bit longer to create these items before convention...because just days before I received my box of goodies...I was in a really bad car accident, so I literally piece worked several projects at one time, to keep my train of thought. I was only able to work for about 20 minutes at a time, before having to rest...due to back, neck and hip issues, not to mention the broken right wrist and unfortunately since August 1st, I've been unable to craft...right shoulder rotator cuff and labrum tear and I'm now sporting an immobilizing sling for the next 4-5 weeks. I'm a righty :( Being so nervous...about presenting I never told Corporate about my dilemma...I didn't want to add any additional stress. I can honestly say that being in front of thousands of my sister consultants is a nerve racking experience...but once on stage those nervous jitters calm a bit, especially when I realize you couldn't see anyone past the first few rows because of those hot-bright lights....and I could not of done it at all without Monica's help...she ROCKS IN MY BOOK!
