In the News: Second Article Published, Grayslake Coupon, Expo Report

Last fall, we were thrilled to learn that Somerset Studio had accepted our second article for publication as part of its "poppy challenge" for the January/February issue. In case you're not familiar with them, the Somerset magazines are all about the creative life, with titles covering a range of topics, from mixed media to collage, blogging to jewelry making, altered couture and more. Somerset Studio is Barnes and Noble's top-ranking paper-arts magazine -- you can go right now and see us on the newsstand! Too exciting.

Our first article appeared last January and featured our altered-art trophies. This article details the steps for making our lamp-part flowers, which we will be offering for sale at this weekend's Grayslake Antique Market:

Which brings me to my next piece of big news: due to the overwhelmingly positive response to last week's Expo Show admission discount -- special for blog readers thanks to Zurko Promotions -- we've been invited to offer it again for Grayslake. Here's the scoop -- just print this page, bring it with you to this weekend's Grayslake Antique Market, and receive HALF OFF your admission! Print as many as you'd like and bring your friends. How awesome is that?

The Expo Show was a blast! Smalls, projects, industrial, containers and small furniture were our big sellers. Thanks, as always, to everyone who came out to support the show. We literally couldn't do it without you. Work started today on Grayslake. In addition to the poppies, we'll be debuting our Valentine projects. Check back later this week for a peek at what else we'll be bringing. xo
