Hi Everyone!

There is nothing better on a nasty dreary day than to receive some "happy mail".  I received a big box from DecoArt full of supplies I'd recently requested for some future projects. 

Guys, I sincerely mean this ... I have NEVER been so blown away by the generosity of the wonderful people at DecoArt.  They are such a wonderful company to design for and be associated with.  Mackenzie and Angela ... THANK YOU SO MUCH for always being so helpful and bending over backwards to make sure your design team people are taken care of.  I love you guys!!

Just take a look at some of the "goodies" that were in my box ...

Chalky Finish Paint and Vintage Effect Wash!  I recently worked with the Chalky Finish Paint and LOVE it!  I did a complete overhaul on a faux concrete angel.  You can see the blog post on it HERE. I cannot stress enough how SIMPLE this paint it so use and the fabulous results you get!  The soft, matte finish is amazing!

I have yet to work with the Vintage Effect Washes and I am dying to do so!  The colors are so rich and yummy!  I can't wait to work with these! 

Do you have some clear glass bottles, dishes or jars, buttons or whatever just sitting around because you don't know what to do with them?  These Frost Gloss Enamels caught my eye! You paint them on and they create a colored faux frosted glass look that I am seeing everywhere in the stores right now!  

Metallics anyone?  I LOVE metallic paint in my work!  Check out the CHOCOLATE and CHAMPAGNE colors!  Yep...I'm going to giving those a go real soon!

I adore these new brushes that DecoArt sent me to work with the Vintage Effect Wash and the Chalky Finish paints!  LOVE THEM!!

And finally ... look at these fabulous Decoupage papers! I'm in heaven!  

You can find these and all of the other amazing products available at DecoArt HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a happy and creative weekend!
