Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Candy winner and a little goodbye and a HELLO! too

Hello friends!  It seems like forever since I've posted, but it's been only a week!

First and foremost I want to say, "Happy Birthday Dad"!  Sorry we're so far apart today but I hope you have a fabulous day.  Make sure you do something for yourself and hopefully the weather down there in the sun shine state of Florida isn't too hot!  Love you loads and miss both of you!  Ok! done!

There's a launch party going on at a great store I've found!  Well, ok, I knew iCopic of course but they've revamped it and switched it up a bit with a new page and a giveaway too!  The prizes are outstanding go see for yourself by clicking in my sidebar!  You won't be sorry!  

My Top Tip Tuesday post is going to be a little different today. . .  no project!  However, because someone needs to keep you inspired in the second half of the challenge, I'll be back into crafting swing next Tuesday?  teehee!  The inspiration available over on the Challenge blog from my teamies is exceptional though so be sure to drop in!

I guess the last few days just truly got away from me as I haven't even announced a winner to my candy!  I've got some wonderful things going on in the background that have stolen me away of late.  I'll soon be able to share all of the goodies with you . . . until then;  today is Tuesday and there is a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday Challenge that I'm sharing with you all and some changes as well.

We're saying GOODBYE AND HELLO all at the same time.

Our boss Leanne has said goodbye and left us in the capable and inspiring hands of Carol and Samantha who are taking the job over as co-owners.  We are so lucky to have two of TTT's fabulous designers to lead us and I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing Leanne the best in whatever venture she chooses to embark upon next - We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts and will miss you xxx
With Leanne's departure we went on the scout for some more TTT Talent to delight you with!
Please give a huge TTT welcome to our wonderful new Teamies...

Lisa S and Jennifer

The challenge this time is:              "1 for the Men"         and as usual, there will be two weeks to play along so get out your buttons, some strong, manly designed paper out.

Ok, so now on to the yummy stuff!  First, I want to remind all players that in order to quaify for the candy you must follow the blog and paste and link the candy back here to this blog.  I wouldn't want any of you to miss out again as the new candy is really a beautiful one!
