Exciting news!

I've been keeping this under raps since December and I've been bursting to tell someone!

But I can now reveal that I was asked to be one of the new guest designers for the PaperArtsy team, for January to April! I can't tell you how excited I am. I love their stamps and paints. Of course without any hesitation I said yes!


I found out just as I was going to bed too, so I was laid in bed with wide eyed excitement. It took me hours to get to sleep! I'm not complaining though. I dreamt of inky painty shinannigans.

So a few days later the postie knocked on my door and handed me a huge box filled with goodies. Leandra had sent me lots of stamps, paints, papers, wooden items to decorate and embellishments. I nearly keeled over from her generosity, I couldn't wait to get started on creating.


I only had the small matter of 70 wedding invites to make first, oh and I needed to get my first 3 projects to Paper Artsy in 2 weeks! It was all action stations over Christmas I can tell you. 


I've managed to finish 4 projects not 3 and they're going up on the PaperArtsy blog all next week, with a little sneak peak on my blog too at the same time. So keep your eye's peeled for lots of blog posts next week.

Leandra at PaperArtsy has come up with a great concept, instead of having a "design team" for the whole year, she's having 4 guest designers do a semester of 4 months. Each designer is doing 1 week out of every month to show their crafty projects. Mine starts on the 7th of January, that's this Monday. I'm on the team with some amazing people who will be revealed throughout the year, but along with me in the first semester is Linda Cain! I've been a mahoosive fan of Linda Cain for ages, she has the best imagination for altering things. There are two more designers for January but they've not spilled the beans yet, so I'll keep it under my hat for now.
So we have a nice new shiny blog button too for the 1st semester design team, I've put it on my side bar, so keep your eye out to see if you can find out who the other designers are.
Happy New Year everyone xx
Can't wait for next week
