Hey there creatives! If this is your first time here welcome, welcome, welcome! Today I have tons of fun for you! Crafty projects, Fairies and exciting news! Today’s project is super quick and easy! A patriotic craft in 15 minutes or less! Enjoy the video! (Supplies are listed in the end and the cloud stamp is in my etsy shop!) This would be a great kid project as well, the littles will be out of school soon so keep this one in mind!

In other crafty, exciting news…

If you haven’t seen this already I am super excited to announce this new partnership with Brutus/Monroe! If you have not heard of Brutus Monroe you need to go check out their website they have tons of mixed media products for your artsy needs, not to mention they will be carrying a line of my products soon! 😉
They have been incredibly patient and supportive of my ideas and I am so happy to be a part of this team. I have always wanted to make a product line from my art, I wanted to do it with a company that loved my art and designs and were excited about my work and believed in it too. I met Christopher (owner) from Brutus Monroe at Creativation and right away he was so excited with my art and we had the same wild ideas about a product line and months later here we are!

Here is the first of many new designs that will be available for all your crafty projects! One of the things that I really wanted to do in developing products is making sure things can go together or mix and match; for example I have this stamp set called Fairy Magic that has the sweetest little fairy and a some other fun characters and sayings. I also made this background stamp Fairy Garden; you can use it by itself, use parts of it or combine it with any parts of the Fairy Magic set. I love that Brutus Monroe has the same philosophy. There will be more fairies and mermaids and other exciting products coming soon!  I can’t wait for you to see all the pretties!

Last but not least here’s a reminder of my dt call! The details are in the previous post! I can’t tell you how excited and nervous I am! It’s been quite a journey to get to this place and it’s really just the beginning of a new chapter, I hope you will join me!
