Paper Trail 15
Oh Yes! I am excited. I was doing a few chores around the House called My Heart's Fancy one Saturday a month or so ago and received a phone call from Eileen Hull..... She was making plans for her Paper Trail 15 tour and wanted to know if we would like to play along with her one day in November. Now, Eileen was new to me - well I had heard of her and I knew she created for Sizzix, but I was blown away by the creativity of her class projects and wow! I had to say yes! so.......
PAPER TRAIL 15 IS COMING TO MY HEART'S FANCY ON NOVEMBER 3!
For those of you who don't know Eileen, she is an artist, author, product designer and adventurer. She licenses her die designs with Sizzix and unique ink applicators with Clearsnap. She purchased a vintage trailer, Scotty, on eBay and outfitted it as a mobile studio. She now travels cross-country on the Paper Trail and teaches at stores, retreats and events. She has logged over 43,000 miles in the past 3 years and has visited 30+ states. Her home is Herndon, VA where she lives with her husband.
