silver bella here I come!

I'm packing like crazy for Silver Bella. (I'm heading out tomorrow morning) I can't wait to see all my friends and make new ones.

Before I go, I wanted to tell you about the new product just added to my Open Sky shop. I'm so excited about it!

Remember this bird? Well, I made the fabric with this fabulous crafting material.

They are called Angelina Fibers and I can't stop thinking about it, playing with it, and talking about it. I'm going to work on making a video to show you how cool it is but that will have to wait until I get back. Until then, here's a little information to get you excited too.

You can make a fabulous gossamer-like fabric and it is so easy you won't believe it. You just place a bit of the fabric on a piece of parchment paper, cover it with another piece and quickly (like 2 or 3 seconds) run your iron over it. The fibers bond with each other (and only each other!) But the most exciting part and the part that is so hard to photograph is how vibrant and sparkly these fibers are. It's like glitter fabric!

What are you going to do with it? I'm thinking it makes the most fabulous angel wings.

I got a bunch of those fibers in a gift box and didn't have a clue what to do with them...they are beautiful!

I found a little something for Alfredo tonight...and a little something for you. I am really looking forward to meeting you. I am the one that is in and out of the wheelchair so I am easy to spot and I will, of course, recognize you from your pictures.

I am beyond EXCITED. Feels like Christmas is coming!
