I leave early Friday morning to drive up to Los Angeles to help Margie set up her booth for CHA. This is her second year designing her own paper and so it is really exciting to see how people flock to her booth and drool over her products.
She really is an amazing designer.
Anyway, I made a few decor items for the booth. I thought I'd share one with you. I used the papers from Margie's "Kitch" line to create this wreath.
It is large. Probably thirty or so inches across. I really wanted to capture the feel of the paper which is, well, kitchy. So I dug out some of my vintage hankies and old pop tops. I made carnations (the kitchiest flower around) out of muffin cups. And as I always say, everything is better with pom poms. Oh Lordy yes.
The overall theme of Margie's booth this year is going to be very festive so I wanted to stick with that and make this wreath seem like a party on the wall.
Don't those polk-a-dots just give you a happy feeling deep down in your soul? If you will be at CHA I hope I get to say hi. I will be at the show on Saturday, but then I must come home and take care of all my little chickies.
