Winter workout, Paper Crafts and Other Ramblings

Well if you didn't already know I was chosen to be published in Paper Crafts Magazine on January 18th, in their special Stamp It! Mag.  This is super exciting!!!  This is my first card publication, and hopefully many more to come.   Still aiming for Somerset studio Holiday editions.... so keep your fingers crossed!
This card was created using a mix of Red Lead Stamps(girl, hat). And Character Construction(mask, wand).  Her dress is paper pieced using October Afternoon paper Thrift Shop collection.  Other patterned paper a mix of Sassafraslass and October Afternoon.  So fun!!
Already this month has been CrAzY!  Orders have been pouring in for weddings!!!  Since the New Year I have over 50 sales, and still one more week to go till February!  Just blown away by the response!
I have been working super hard to fill bulk orders in a timely manner, and try and put together kits and classes.  And it has been WONDERFUL! 
Here are some sneak peaks of some Valentine's cards created for Cincinnati/Dayton.


Just LOVE the Greeting Farm Cheeky Girls!  So cute, with a pin up girl twist.  The most perfect combination for Valentine's Day!!
Starting the last week of January, you can now find some of my items available for purchase in Columbus!
If you are familiar with the Columbus Ohio area, stop in a check out Sobo Style. 
Located in Downtown Cbus @ 3282 N. High Street

As I had said before things are really starting to pick up.  And the opportunities along with it.  Yesterday I received an email from a photographer getting ready to shoot a new line for Dolly Pearl  in New York City.  He was wondering if I would be interested in creating Giant bouquets with my flowers for the shoot!!! 
Here is the link to his site, his photography is incredible!

After all the snow had melted this week after a quick warm up and rain, we now have 5 inches of snow.  Last night I decided to go out and be a good girlfriend and shovel the driveway so David could get in.  The snowplows ALWAYS bury us in..  But I always kinda look forward to a good winter workout!!

Well, time to get some work done.  Just wish it could involve making collages.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!
