The Artistic Stamper beckons



Hello everyone!  After yesterday's excitement, I'm back with more news that I've been holding in til I was almost ready to burst.  I'm setting off on another new journey...

I had an absolute ball being the February Guest Designer for The Artistic Stamper, so I was completely over the moon when Jennie and Emma got in touch to ask whether I would join the team full-time.  You can already guess that there was quite a lot of happy dancing going on!

So there's just a little announcement over there today, with a couple of memory-joggers of those February projects (which I will be adding to my collection here sooner or later - just so I can get everything under one roof, so you will get to see them again at some point!).  It would be lovely if you had a moment to pop over there and visit!



Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the sooner we will be able to treat life as art.
Maya Angelou

The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.
Barbara DeAngelis

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. 
You can steer yourself any direction you choose. 
You're on your own, and you know what you know. 
And you are the only one who'll decide where you'll go.
Dr. Seuss
