IHM is Closed This Week!

Just a reminder that Inky Hot Mess is closed this week while I attend an industry tradeshow.


I will be ordering lots of new products at the tradeshow! We will have a ton of new vendors and loads of mixed media goodies coming.

I am taking some fabulous classes with some big companies and paper crafting celebrities. Ken Oliver gave a sneak peek to the projects we're making on his Facebook video this week. I have classes with Bo Bunny, Art Anthology, Lawn Fawn, Graphic 45, Sizzix, The Paper Cut, Faber-Castell, Dare 2B Artzy, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Dina Wakley, Dyan Reaveley aka Dylusions, and Tim Holtz.


Even though our retail shop in downtown Geneva is closed, you can still order from our website! Orders will ship once I return. Inky Hot Mess will reopen on Wednesday, April 20th at 11am. I'll try to post photos from the show to Instagram. They should feed into our Facebook page. I'll see you all next week! Wish me luck! This is my first tradeshow and it's already a bit overwhelming.
