Today on Good Things Utah on KUTV4 I was honored to be able to unveil my new HOME DECOR line. These new vinyl words, alphabets and phrases will be available at Hobby Lobby stores nationwide at the end of the month.

I wanted to design handwritten personalized sentiments that you can apply to your walls, mirrors, and other surfaces.

Here are some fun projects I created using the MONOGRAM set. This is my handwriting and makes creating all sorts of projects quick and easy.


Please join me at the Deseret News Home Show VINTAGE DECOR ART MARKET this Weekend. I will be hosting a demo with my brand new HOME DECOR LINE on the Design Stage on Saturday, October 10th at 4 pm. Come see what I have been up too and say HI. The first 50 people at my demo area will get to take home a monogram frame from themselves. So please come!!!!

It will be better then any Home Show you've been too...including vintage finds, furniture, art, holiday items, DIY classes and home decor ideas (including mine)! Show runs at the South Towne Expo Center October 9 - 11.

I am waking up at 4 am every night since I got back from my business trip to London. I felt really impressed to do this blog post this morning so I got up early. I go on Channel 2 this morning. It will air at 3:30 pm on Channel 2- FRESH LIVING show. I hope you will watch it! This is my first time going on this show. I am sharing what I am doing at the upcoming big "PINNERS CONFERENCE" here in Utah next month. It's a large show and I will be sharing more about it. I have a booth there and will be selling some great TC product and am teaching TWO workshops. Make sure you come if you can. Many people from around the world now travel to this show. Today I will be on air sharing the projects and PRINTING your memories. 

These are the two projects I will be at Pinners Conference teaching and you can visit our booth at the show.
I am thrilled about this.

Now... oh my... deep breath...
has been racing.

It has been hard to sleep.
My book is SELLING. It's being read. I am getting so much mail and messages from people who have read my book.
I cry as I get so many of the messages. They are often with the person holding the book as they are buying it or after reading it.

I was so AFRAID to write this book.
It's deeply personal and REAL.
Guess what?

No one really has it EASY. Do we?

I NEVER thought in a million years I would be doing what I do. I would be SHARING my designs outside the craft world. Well, I never expected to be doing anything other than a mother. Heavenly Father led me to do and BE who I am.
I followed HIS path for me.

This book is now at Costco, Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and book stores both in the USA and Internationally.
I cry tears of joy and tears of tenderness.
I feel like I have exposed so much.
YOU will read the REAL me in so many ways.
I had no choice but to be STRONG and GO ON.
It is STILL not easy.

SETBACKS still happen to me EVERY day.
It's really how we CHOOSE to look at them.
I hope by sharing my story and how I grew up...
my inner desire struggles that YOU too will
know that YOU can and will do amazing things if you only BELIEVE in yourself.

I felt very strongly today to SHARE with you that you EACH need to realize YOUR own worth.
FOCUS on YOU. You can't change anyone else.
You can't change the hard times you will face.
YOU can FOCUS on being happy and living the most
amazing LIFE by being KINDER to yourself and your struggles.

I want you to know that I appreciate the messages about the book. I hope you will share the book with someone else too. I hope my story will help others. We are not alone. We all are in this crazy life journey together. Have the BEST Wednesday EVER!!!!!!!

It has been a crazy busy month. I don't even know where to begin. I got home last night from London and a great three days on Create & Craft USA. I plan to share more of this later. Two weeks ago,  I held the TC Vegas Event. I felt so inspired and impressed with every single teacher and volunteer and the keynote given by Ashley Mitchell. 

Truth be told, it was the hardest event I had ever done. I had some "unexpected" behind the scenes issues that left so much to get done with very limited staff. The past few months have been one in which I truly spent a lot of time in prayer and picking myself up. I was determined to pick myself up. I just kept positive and felt that I could and would make it work. I always say..." FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION."  It was so much work but in the end it was AMAZING. I then announced the teachers for 2016 and everyone was so excited. I had put so much thought into "who" to invite. 
 Held at this resort about 15 minutes from the Las Vegas airport.

I invited some of my personal friends who I know have heart and passion for being creative. They are all so different in their style and techniques, so I know there will be something for everyone attending. They each love to share their knowledge and talent for living a creative life. I am beyond grateful to be planning 2016 with the following designers. I know that this past year's event taught me so much and plan to make my events only BETTER every single year. Here are the teachers who are coming to teach at my event. 

Join me and my special celebrity guest designers in Henderson, Nevada. 

He is AMAZING and truly am amazing teacher.
YOU will love him and his spirit.
Richard is not only my friend but is passionate about
being creative and sharing this passion.
Deanna Hutchinson
Canadian celebrity crafter, also one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet. Her workshops are highly sought out and she is a card and die cut expert.

Margie Aslett- Romney
This is a the ORIGINAL "SPARK" girl.
Yes, Margie is the sweetest and one of the funniest craft celebrity's. I love her "love" of life and shabby chic.
She has spent years inspiring and sharing her creative journey with the world. Her outgoing and fun loving spirit is contagious. You will adore her "girly" projects.

My sweet friend Lisa Bearnson is coming!!!!
This girl is the PIONEER... the leader of SCRAPBOOKING.
She started Creating Keepsakes Magazine, has been on QVC and HSN and been on the Oprah Winfrey show. She's basically done it all. I am a HUGE fan of my friend. She has shown women how to DREAM BIGGER and MAKE IT HAPPEN. 

I am honored that my friends will be joining me for 2016. It's going to be OVER THE TOP amazing.... I can't wait.
There is a total of SIX workshops. Each teacher will teach one workshop and I teach both days for a total of two workshops at my event.
  The TC 2015 Vegas Event SOLD OUT and this year we anticipate another sold out year. Would you want to join us?

If you want to be on the notification list to attend, please contact Follow me on Facebook and Instagram as well for up to the minute news. 

THIS week is a big week for me. I have two TV segments and the HOME SHOW appearance on Friday and Saturday.

I am finally at a point to announce the expansion of my brand into the HOME decor world. It has been a big dream come true to do the TC Studio Box with The Original Scrapbox​. I am so proud of the  furniture piece that we have done together. Now, I am going to the 2015 HOME SHOW this weekend. Super honored to be attending the HOME SHOW October 9-11th at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy Utah. I will be hosting a demo with my brand new home decor line on the Design Stage on Saturday, October 10th at 4 pm. Come see what I have been up too. This Teresa Collins home collection will be in every Hobby Lobby​ within the next month. You can see the TV debut on Friday on Channel 4 Good Things Utah live from the HOME SHOW too. I am in the newspaper and didn't even know it. I'm am thrilled to expand and design more and more for the Home.

I will be on FRESH LIVING Channel 2 this Wednesday talking about my appearance at the PINNERS CONFERENCE here in Utah. 

If this is not busy enough, I am planning a family birthday party for Zach this Friday. It's his 18th birthday that day. All he wanted was a family party. I sure love this boy!!!!!!!

Even though I am in need of some down town, I know that I am very fortunate to be so busy. I take it day by day and just appreciate what I have been given.

I wanted to share a little "BEHIND THE SCENES" of one of my recent Channel 4 Good Things Utah TV segments.
First, I am in LOVE with LIVE TV. 
I just love that you know you are instantly 
getting your message out there. 

You normally get to the studio about an hour prior to the show beginning. You have to go through security to get into the TV Station. I know they do this so that no one can come in and do something crazy. They have a greenroom you can wait in, but I prefer to go "behind the scenes and watch the segments.
I prepare my segment by setting up my items,
projects, etc on a large table. 

Brian and Bridget went with me this morning. Yes,
the studio is dark except where you are on set. 

I like to wear skirts and they put the microphone on my blazer and the clip to the back of my skirt. I set up the table and then they have two show assistants take the take out on the set- (all the time I'm praying the items don't knock over!).

I am seriously in LOVE about the PHOTO BLOCKS.
I printed all my photos before I went on air at home. 
I prepped several photo blocks to show on air.
Then I printed photos on my Canon Printer to demo how easy it is to apply the photo to the photo blocks.

Depending on the local news and segments you have anywhere from 3-5 minutes. You simply watch the camera man for the "wrap it up" signal. 

The hardest part of LIVE TV is knowing that you really don't know
how much time you really have. So I think you
have to be okay with being able to quickly say 
what you want and wrap it up fast.

I would have loved to show the Canon Printer printing my photos but time and space on set simply does not allow it.

Nicea was loving the photo blocks and printer. They were amazed at the quality of my prints. Yes, they were gushing about little Cooper too.

I really do love doing this show because I love sharing
with the viewers "new ways" to display your photos and show
things that they probably have never seen or heard of.

BEHIND THE SCENES setting up my photo display. I wish the table was bigger because I had a hard time fitting it all on one table.

I also showed the Canon PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer (prints up to 13x19") and the GOLD Canon SELPHY CP910 Compact Photo Printer that you can find only at the Teresa Collins section at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts store. (*They are on sale this week too!!!!)

This is my go to TRAVEL printer and I am "obsessed" with both of these Canon Printers.

*LOOK at the quality of the photos that I put on the photo blocks.

I am showing how to take the film off and the adhesive is "on" the photo block and you simply apply the photo to the block. It's really simple. 

We weren't able to get a copy of the segment from the station so one of our fans recorded this from off her TV for us to view:

I hope this segment will inspire YOU to print your photos and display them. I know that I LOVE looking at photos in my home and office. They make me smile!!!!!
