Last week was buuuusy! The Fiskars booth was buzzing with crafts, demos and giveaway activities.
First, the Fiskars booth looked simply stunning! One half of the booth was the ‘craft room’ set up with plenty of orange handled tools, inspiration boards, different materials, textiles and art work. The other half (the side shown in the photo below) depicted the ‘home’ – filled with lots of gorgeous handmade items. Much of the work in this room was created by Fiskars designer Smitha Katti. See that gorgeous mixed media canvas above the fireplace? Beautiful! Here’s how to make your own! And here’s a close up of her ‘Oh Happy Day’ mixed media banner, strung across the mantle. Again, instructions on how to make your own.Later this year, Fiskars will be celebrating its 365th birthday, so there was some early birthday party fun including cupcakes! (orange of course)…..giveaways and surprise gifts!There was also a scissor engraver who engraved 100 pairs of Amplify Mixed Media 8″ Shears for attendees. Make that 101. Lots of fun had by all, which took the edge off the aching feet, inky hands and a hoarse voice!
