DEBUT- CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!!!!!



*NEW TERESA COLLINS WORKSHOP.
USING CANDY CANE LANE AND TINSEL & CO.

Today I am showing the debut of my CHRISTMAS collections. I designed TWO this year.
Many of you may wonder why I choose to design two collections this year. This is my first year ever designing two instead of one.

I made this decision for two reasons.

1. My Christmas collection last year sold out so fast and my sales staff got so many "upset" customers. They could not understand how the line sold out so fast. I know this was a good problem to have. However, it was even hard for me, as I could not even teach with many of my own products due to the fast sell out!

2. I wanted to design two collections that had two very different styles and feel but could be combined and look beautiful together.

I am so fortunate that so many stores are LOVING both collections and are calling to order not just one but BOTH collections. This makes me so HAPPY. It is like having twins and you think they both are equally beautiful and could never pick a favorite. So I love that they both are being ordered and loved.

HOWEVER- today I am giving away 3 paper collections (you can choose which one you want!) to 3 winners who post on my blog. Simply tell me which line is your favorite and why. 
The full paper collections are on my website at www.teresacollinsdesigns.com

Today I filmed TWENTY ONE videos at www.mycraftchannel.com. Yes, I can't believe it myself.   I even had a conference call with Canon during  a break. Let's just say... CANON and I are planning some amazing things. I am honored to be working with them. 


The craziest thing happened as I filmed today. I was in the middle of a show when I heard a loud explosion. Gentry was in the front of the studio. We had just had a problem with a jar of gold leaf opening. It finally opened after some heat and we noticed the color had been effected during the process. When the loud bang happened, I thought the jar must have exploded. To my amazement, as we walked over to the noise, we noticed the mini refrigerator door wide open. Gentry was shocked too and said the door just exploded open. Inside you could see a frozen coke zero can was literally exploded and remnant were outside the mini fridge and all inside it. How crazy is this?

I kept thinking that the gold leaf was going to be everywhere. I was thankful it was only the can of coke and. Gentry was so cute and offered to clean it all up. CRAZY things sometimes happen when you are filming. That was a wrap... watch for NEW SHOWS starting this MONDAY at MY CRAFT CHANNEL.

PS- I am teaching my project, the Christmas Countdown Stand workshop at several locations. I am also for in the very near future
teaching online workshops for those of you who are not close to the stores that I am teaching. More information about this will follow.
