Pardon me while I pat myself on the back.....

Remember that Barbara Mandrell song "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool"?

When it comes to cutting edge, I'm usually the one that's not even on the blade.

Last fall I wanted to do an art challenge that nobody else was doing and finally came up with banners. It was an original idea, at least to me. At the time, I had to search pretty far down into Google to find some examples to post. Since then, I have hosted two banner challenges and two banner swaps. Throughout the year I have seen more banners (and triangle art) being done here and there; they are becoming more common.

But today, on the cover of my new Paper Crafts magazine, I see this: "Trend Alert! Breezy Banners". Yes ma'am, I did! The 'moxie fab' spotlight is on "the trendy and versatile banner."

Now I'm not claiming that I invented banners, or was even the first to do an art blog about them, but I do feel rather pleased to find myself on the cutting edge! (Get it....paper crafts....scissors...cutting edge....oh, never mind)

Okay, I'm stopping with the patting now. My arm is starting to hurt.

Lisa, kudos on being a leader in the paper arts field :) and no, my desk is NOT always that tidy...not even close when I am creating...but I must admit I have a good dose of Felix Unger in me and I do clean up real well when I'm done :) Thanks for visiting!

If you go to Angela Cartright's blog and scroll down a little, you'll see some banners she made.

Lisa, your stamps will be incoming soon, I had a hiccup in my week that prevented me from getting them out sooner. If they don't get mailed today they will be mailed by Tuesday of this coming week. So, so sorry for the inconvenience. Personally, I'm blaming the season. =P

Of course you started the banner craze! Who else would have?

What's the next big trend going to be? I've heard it's owls, and I'm hoping it isn't true.
