I am doing filming at the show, and have countless meetings. Watch for my Scrapbook Expo segments regarding my show debuts. So for the first time in years, I made the decision to not have my own booth. Oh my...this is where it get's hard. I went back and forth for months. It's been hard to not have a booth. I love doing the booth and booth design. However, as my brand of products and partnerships have grown so often the products are promoted better in my partners booth.
Ultimately, I made the decision for two reasons. The first being, I was often not in my booth and was in my partners booths. Every time I left the booth, when people came by they would want to come back and wait until I was there. I have numerous meetings at the show and I realized I was not in my booth as much as I would want.
As many of you may not know, last year two people went into my booth and my entire paper collections were destroyed and thrown away. They could not tell by surveillance who had done the damage, but needless to say I was discouraged. It made me realize that my papers still sold without having been shown during the show. This made me come to the realization that having a booth is great, but I can and do sales without a booth. I am blessed to be partnered and have my products worldwide at this point and I needed to simplify in 2016. I remind myself to follow my heart and with my expanding lifestyle brand of products, I needed to simplify my life.
I decided to do what I say in my book- EVOLVE or DISSOLVE. I am so thankful for the direction that I knew in my heart I needed to go as a brand and company. I debuted the TC Studio Box with The Original Scrapbook and we had millions of hits this past year.
This is photos of the TC Studio Box from my home studio.
So this past year I did a line of vinyl for HOBBY LOBBY. My line of vinyl debuted at the end of October. It has EXCEEDED the expectations and I am thrilled to be working on MORE in my collections. This is five of the 13 TC skus that are available nationwide at all HOBBY LOBBY stores.
I am thrilled to let you know that you will find a huge selection of my stationery and office products nationwide in the TJ Maxx and Marshalls. The products will be arriving to stores within the next 6 weeks. I will announce when I hear that they available in stores.
Here are just some of the stores and products that I have designed that will be available the next few months.
TC Home decor board Family Christian in stores this month... January 2016.
I have designed home and office magnet boards for TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Home Goods, Home Sense that are available in all of these stores March 1st 2016. I am thrilled to see my products in the home decor areas of these major department stores. I know that photos and home printing will go hand and hand with these boards. I am still honored to be promoting Canon and they are a perfect fit for my expanding line of products for the home and displaying your memories. This excites me.
I have written another book. This is such a honor. I count my blessing daily to be designing from the heart. I have my books now at Costco, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and at book stores through the world. LIVE LIFE IN ALL CAPS and HEART, MIGHT, MIND & STRENGTH.
This new one is a journal. You can preorder now at Amazon.com. It will be available March 2016.

Gratitude for life's golden moments is key to staying happy. To this end, internationally acclaimed designer Teresa Collins has created a journal especially for those looking for the good in their lives. With a fun design and encouraging quotes, this journal will help you count your blessings and stay positive through even the toughest days.

Bed Bath & Beyond will be selling my Dry Erase canvas boards. THIS is just a few of the products and stores that you will see my brand in this coming year.
I have exciting things coming out in the CRAFT and paper area of my designs. All I can say is Studio Gold was a MASSIVE favorite at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft and you can bet that 2016 is going to be full of Teresa Collins product that are SHINY, GOLD and well... that is all I can share for now. I will not be sharing these upcoming collections now... but let's just say, it makes my heart skip a beat. It's GOLDEN to me. I am truly thankful for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft for the past year of growing my collections and in believing in me.
I can't share all the details yet, but you will see lots and lots of paper and my products debuted this year. I foresee lots of paper pads. I am exceedingly thankful. This journey is something I love. I have had to really FOCUS on living and designing from pure passion. I don't believe in the word CAN'T. I believe I can and I believe YOU can do anything you set your heart and mind to.
I know I should not tease, but watch for EVEN more products with my crafting partnerships. If you are at the show or watch my periscope I will be sharing my NEW lines of products there in the booth. Some of my great partners will not be at CHA but I am still proud to be with Canon and Xyron and PSA Essentials. I will be continuing my weekly Monday show on My Craft Channel. I am very thankful for this collaboration. I will be filming with MCC at the show so watch for the episodes.
This NEW beautiful Canon PIXMA MG7720 printer is a GOLDEN girls dream. I am going to be sharing more about this printer soon.
TC Personalized Stampers with PSA Essentials are available at fine stationery stores and Jo-Ann fabric and crafts.
*TC line of Xyron adhesive, pink stapler and more found at Jo-Ann, Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I always say that the adhesives you use are the foundation to your creative projects.
I have had many people ask if I will still be teaching. YES!!!!! I will still be traveling and teachings. Watch for me in Australia (March), Germany (April), S. Africa (September), Memphis TN (October), California, the TC Vegas event (September), the TC Cruise, Washington and much more.
I feel a profound need to thank each of you that support and encourage me in all of my endeavors. I look forward to sharing my designs and more in the coming months. I have followed my heart and passion to be exactly where I am now. I have had setbacks that have made me stronger, more determined and unwavering in my love to design. I believe my biggest competition is myself. I want to be the best me I can be. I believe at CHA and in life that there is enough PIE for everyone. I want others to succeed and I am thankful to be in this creative industry. 2016 is going to be AMAZING....
