Today marks my very 1st blog post! I recently attended the West Coast Art and Frame Expo. A great place to learn and see all that the framing world has to offer. I set my sites on learning about social media in business…. hence the blogging. I learned a lot during the class I attended. I was overwhelmed at first, but that soon turned to excitement. This excitement continued and was also join with the emotions of shock, amazement and joy as I was awarded Larson Juhl’s 2018 Design Star: Chopped Editon Winner.
I am humbled and honored to be this year’s winner. There were so many ridiculously creative & talented framers who competed. All who entered were given the same print “Faded Horizon I”, by Grace Pop, along with a list of “ingredients”. There were 4 categories… Best Use of Matboard, Best Use of Print, Best Use of Moulding and Best Assembly.
I was extremely excited I won “Best Use of Moulding”! Then when I was announced the overall 2018 Design Star: Chopped Edition winner, I was shocked!! It was truly unbelievable. Being creative is a job perk. Being honored for that creativity is not only amazing it is extremely validating.
