February 2019

WOW, we have a treat for you guys with lots to catch up on from January. 
It all started when “the Boss” decided after last year’s Creativation show that she would maybe have a  Dusty Attic Booth this year. 
We where so lucky to be with 49 and Market for two years in a row, helping Janene and Dan, that we kind of knew what we needed to do to accomplish a booth of our own. 
Over the moon to report that Jennifer made it happen and it looked amazing. Darryl (her Hubby), Tina Ollett, Jen Burns and herself on set up day where tired but ever so excited. We also had the best Design Team Layout Displays as well. 
(Bias I might be, but its true!)

 SO MANY people LOVED the designs and could not believe that there was roughly only 400 of our 2000 odd products on show

Stacey from Scrapbooking Made Simple even did a video tutorial for her online store that you can watch for yourselff – its so super cute ! 

RIGHT ….  HERE    


49 and Market where straight across from us (thank you Janene) and we all had such an amazing time together. 
Tina Ollett did a collaboration class of 49 and Market papers and flowers with Dusty Attic Chipboard and it was a huge HIT !!!  

A Round up of our Design Team members that where at Creativation with a photo is of course a must ! 
Tina Ollett, Kristy Abela, Antonis Tzanidakis, Jen Burns and Jen Hedger 

AND that’s a wrap lady and gents !

One of the most amazing things we did though before Creativation started was go a few days earlier and went to the 
I can not explain the feeling you get when standing there looking out into it. PLUS it was SNOWING, so a huge treat for us Aussies who haven’t seen Snow, we even had a snowball fight! 
(unfortunately our much planned and anticipated helicopter flight had to be cancelled)
 How amazing is this ?

So that was our whirlwind but amazing trip
