I have been in the craft industry since 2008, in 2009 I worked with and for the amazing Graphic 45 Paper Company. Since CHA Winter 2009, with the exception of one summer show, I have exhibited a custom paper dress form in their booth. It all started with a little wire dress form that I brought to the 2009 Winter show in Anaheim, California. To see the dress forms from 2009 to 2012, visit this past blog post HERE.
Its been an incredible adventure and I am so grateful for Graphic 45 allowing me to be a part of their journey as well.
But this year is going to be a bit different... I am going FULL SIZE! Yes, you read this right, a full size mannequin covered in the beautiful "Portrait of a Lady" Graphic 45 paper collection. Hundreds of die cut butterflies and signature swirls will adorn this years display. I cannot wait to share it live at the show in just a couple of weeks. There is some teasers in this blog post, so keep reading.
