I have a secret....

The secret's out...

Ding Ding Ding!  Wanda and Tamara/DivaTam got it!  It's *IS* a ME-themed product line, and it's being released by Go West Studios at MemoryTrends in a couple of weeks!

Gwsmealbum Tamara/DivaTam was the closest by guessing that the image was of an acrylic frame.  The item shown is actually an 7x5.5 Etched Acrylic sprial-bound album from the soon-to-launch "Being Me" line. (See acrylic albums from their other lines here.)

Last year at MemoryTrends, Brett and Julie of Go West mentioned to me that they were considered doing an "about me" line of product, inspired by my Book of Me scrapbooking idea book.  I suggested that I could teach a trade show class on doing a theme album using that product line.  We agreed to talk more about possibilities after the show.

A year and a gazillion emails later, and it's almost here! 

Basically the "Being Me" line is meant to allow crafters to express and illustrate what it means
to "be me", and what "me" means to each individual. The embellishments will allow and encourage creative expression of the crafter's personality, providing a sort of framework that will help inspire projects that perserve personal stories.

In working with Brett & Julie, I suggested words, phrases, concepts and ideas; they designed the product.  So to say I "have" or designed my own product line would be inaccurate -- I guess it would be more accurate to say I collaborated or consulted on the "Being Me" product line (though I did come up with the name for the line, which I completely love).

I haven't seen all the product from the line yet, but they told me there will be word chimes (bigger than previous chime sets here), Whimsy Chimes (with all new graphics; see the previous Whimsy Chimes here), and I think some acrylic frames (different words and graphics from the previous frames here). 

SO!  I will be teaching a sold-out class using this brand-spankin-new product line at MemoryTrends in just a couple of weeks.  I'm really looking forward to seeing retailers' initial responses, and hopefully a resurgence in the popularity of "About Me" scrapbooking!
