A LOVELY Give Away!

We are ready to get started and here's the first thing on the schedule! It's a Valentine themed give away! I have put together some fun things to get you started creating for Valentine's!

Some of the items include rubber stamps, a mini scrapbook, seam binding, tags, note pad, cards, vintage wallpaper, berry beads, and more! By the time I get the goodies packed up I'm sure I will add more to it!

So just leave a comment by this Thursday, Jan 15th, 10pm CST. I'll draw a name and post a winner by the weekend. Please only leave one comment so I don't count you twice.

EDITED: COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED!

Now for some more important dates! We are going to get started with some fabulous tutorials starting this Friday, Jan. 16th! I am so excited about this round and I hope you are too! So be sure and check back in this Friday, it's going to be fun! Be sure and spread the word on your blogs too and tell all your friends! Don't forget to add the new button in the left hand column to your blogs too.

We are so excited about our artist group this go around and we would like to welcome Tiffany and Ellen. We are so thrilled to have their talents join us! Please be sure and stop by and visit the current contributing artists sites. You will find them in the left hand side. Just click on their names to visit their sites.

Hugs,
Cindy
