Fabulous Display Ideas

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Ok…in case you just tuned in, we are on an Amy Duncan, fourcornersdesign.blogspot.com, roll around here….too many fabulous ideas not to share.

I am always on the search for innovative display suggestions for our products for our stores. Amy Duncan’s book, The Salvage Studio, is a treasure trove of creative solutions for organization and display.

My first favorite idea was perfect for flour sack towels: the Wooden Crib Rack

Perfect for towels, papers, scarves.....

Amy gives you everything you need for both these projects, in perfect detail, in the book The Salvage Art Studio.

Next fabulous idea: the Tool Caddy Towel Rack

Ideal for towels on bottom and your favorite treasures on top

These are affordable, creative, out-of-the-ordinary ideas to make your displays inviting and unique.

Enjoy!

A day with Amy Duncan

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

Just had the most wonderful day….Amy Duncan held a Valentine’s Day Card Making party at her beautiful home & studio. Amy transformed her living room in to a working studio for all, complete with trunks of goodies, tables of trinkets and piles of great papers…all for creating collages.

What used to be a dining room, is now a studio table!

Tables of treasures to play with

There is something magical about sitting around a table with kindred spirits…creating…working…planning…chatting…laughing…comparing life notes. Most of us work alone in our studios..this was a rare treat to come together and create in community.

Amy Duncan, our hostess and inspiration

Quilters call it “stitch and bitch”, I call it WONDERFUL!

I can show you a sample of some of the cards that were created, but I wish I could bottle the “mojo” and send that along as well.

Some results from the day

Better yet, go get a group of friends together and do this on your own. Check out Amy’s blog for fabu ideas!
