another announcement!!!


when i started my guest design position for stampotique this month i noticed they were having a design team call… kinda put it in my brain to think about it, but didn't really think too much about it

kim, from the design team and i were emailing one night about my assignments for the month and she mentioned it to me.. asked if i would be interested… said she and carol would love having me… so i asked her what would be required of me.. didn't want to take on too much…. read that over… and accepted :) 

i'm so excited to be working with a SUPER talented team… from all over the WORLD!! Pop on over the stampotique designer's blog.. and check out everyone's work… AMAZING!

i was looking over my stamp shelves and i know i have collected a TON of jill & Daniel's goth girl and guys… but i also have some VERY old school stampotique from back when a worked at caardvark in concord NH in 2001!!  

once again, just neat how everything comes full circle you know?

I already have some classes planned with stampotique images… stay tuned on more info on that…

and yea… just *wicked* excited at all the fun opportunities that have come my way in 2011!!!
