Handmade Gift Challenge – Get your Links In!

Our Handmade Gift Challenge ends this week on the 28th, so remember to get your links in to our linky tool (at the right with F.E. Linus on it)(or on the challenge page HERE).

Your projects don’t have to be Holiday themed, just something you would give someone as a handmade gift. We’ve got a few more great ideas for you today!

Welcome, Lynn!

We are so pleased and excited to welcome another new member of our regular Design Team.

Meet Lynn Mercurio!

Lynn Mercurio

Lynn lives in the St. Louis area and enjoys her crafting hours in the evenings after her full day of work. Wow… she is awfully impressive for someone who has to craft tired! Her terrific blog, http://www.stamperosity.com, is an inspiration, and we know you’ll think so, too.  We can’t wait to see the Stampendous things she’s able to add to this gallery of artwork! We found Lynn on Paper Craft Planet (www.papercraftplanet.com) where she did this amazing project for us last year using our stamps:
