I picked up a package at the desk this evening after setup – needed a few replenishments for the booth after a busy show in Atlanta last weekend. This package had new goodies – January Tim Holtz releases from Sizzix and that infamous January Distress Color of the Month!
But the Distress Color came with a “jigsaw puzzle” – I had to put together the display, which was diecut out of corrugated cardboard and came with lousy instructions. I should have taken a picture of it before I started construction . . .
This is what it looked like when I finished. I suspect it will draw a little attention in the booth on Saturday morning.
This came out while we were setting up – the February Distress Color of the Month – Abandoned Coral. I immediately started referring to it as “Florida Pink”
Later in the day, I found this bloom on a bush near where I was unloading the truck – it didn’t quite prove my point about the Distress color, but for someone who enjoys blooming things in my yard (and longs for them in the dead of winter), this was a reminder that Spring can’t come soon enough.
