SURTEX 2014: Part 2, Louie Awards, The Oscars of Cards


Conversation overheard at the Surtex booth of Cathy Heck Studio

Susan Birnbaum and Tom Vituj of Design Design, Inc: “Congratulations!!”

Cathy , Ellen and Julianna: “Thanks!  … um … for what?”

Susan and Tom: “You won a Louie!”

Cathy, Ellen and Julianna: “We did?”

It’s true! … and as you can see looking at the photo above … Ellen and Jules are even walking on a red carpet to go see it! The piece that won was a boxed Christmas card that Ellen designed, called Snow Angels. produced by Design Design.  It was also sold as gift wrap, and this year, they will be adding cocktail napkins and hankie packets. Snow Angels was also sold as a fun glittery holiday fabric through David Textiles.


P.S. We know most of you do not want to think, for one minute, about sparkly white snow after this very long winter, so, until next winter, we hope you can enjoy making snow angels on the beach in the warm white sand. Happy summer!
