2019 Creativation Recap:

we are back from the 2019 creativation show – the highlight of the creative industry where manufacturers and retailers celebrate the launch of new products.  each year this show takes priority with product development, deadlines, workshop prep, artful projects and booth concepts that come together for an inspiring event…

it takes the hard work from many people to make the show a success and my sincere thanks to my team mario and paula for their dedication, creative contributions, and for putting up with me daily.  thanks to the companies i design with for their continued commitment and believing in our ideas.  thanks to deb, joy and richele for their endless smiles doing make & takes/demos throughout the show.  thanks to an amazing group of talented project designers (linked below) for transforming ordinary products into extraordinary inspiring works of art.  thank you, the craft community for sharing your enthusiasm and excitement for new products that will continue to fuel my imagination and our crafting world…t!m
