Walking through the doors of the Summer Craft and Hobby
Association Show, our staff could feel the buzz of excitement.
Color, texture, pattern, inspiration, and fun fill every corner
of the Rosemont Horizon Convention Center. Wander with us
as we stop at a few of our favorite booths.
We turned right and stopped to stare at the Pink Paislee booth. The centerpiece of the booth was a Parisian themed party
showcasing the fabulous creative mix between Pink Paislee and
House of Three. At first glance the collection was a
stunning mix of subtle white and gray papers with blue and bling
accents. When examined closely, the raised resist pattern
on the papers became evident. They are made for
As we walked around the booth, we loved the other three
new lines from Pink Paislee: Old School, Sweetness, and
Hocus Pocus. Each line offers gorgeous papers, rub ons,
badges, borders, alphabets, tinsel ribbon, and more! We
could not wait to get our hands on just a few of these items and
our counting the days until the entire lines are available.

Design Notes: Born to two "blind" parents, we figured that you would
eventually need to wear glasses, but we were not prepared for you to need
them so early. You were diagnosed with a stigmatism in both eyes and that
glasses were needed as soon as possible. At age 4, you walked in, glanced
around, and casually walked up to "your" section to pick out your very first
pair of frames. I made a comment about how I thought the black pair looked
like the ones that Clark Kent wore and you were sold! You will always be my
little hero in your "Super Specs"!
Journaling: I placed the glasses so that they were "peeking" out from
behind the photo, making it appear as if he was hiding his true identity as
a super hero would.
