Say WHAT?!

Hey everyone!

Happy Halloween!! So today I have some BIG news -- and I mean big GIANT life altering news.. But FIRST, I'll give you a little back story..

Many of you know I used to have a small stamp line, unfortunately -- about a year ago -- I was forced to abruptly shut down due to some not so fun life circumstances. In July of this year I was excited to rejoin blog land. When I joined the Sweet Stamp Shop design team, I had NO idea what a huge blessing it would be! I met Sweet owner Nicole since she is local here in San Diego, and we became fast friends, we just "clicked" -- See:

^^^Us at the most recent Pinterest Party ^^^
(If you're a San Diego local, you MUST join us! These parties are so much fun!)

Anyway, when Nicole mentioned to me that Sweet Stamp Shop was looking to bring on an artist as SSS's first illustrator (besides Nicole of course) I mentioned to her that I had a ton of illustrations laying around that I never used for my own stamp line. She offered to give me some advice and share some of her contacts to help me sell my illustrations. So I brought my computer over one day and showed her my illustrations. Can you guess what happened?...

She asked ME to be Sweet Stamp Shop's first new illustrator!!

Say WHAT?!?
Pretty darn amazing.

Here's a little sneak of what we have coming..

How CUTE are those cards Nicole created?? And with MY illustrations! Eee!!

And a quick little card I threw together...

I can NOT say how excited I am about this new adventure with Nicole and Sweet Stamp Shop!!
We have some AMAZING releases lined up for the next couple months that I know you're going to LOVE!

PLUS, we will be welcoming these wonderful guest designers to show off my new line in November:

If you haven't already, be sure to stop by the Sweet blog today to check out Nicole's post, she's giving away some NEW SWEET! (Yep, my first Sweet stamp set!!)

AND I'd love if you'd check out my NEW blog dedicated to my illustrations!
(Don't worry, this blog isn't going anywhere. This blog will continue to be my personal crafty blog)

AND if you are a Facebooker, I'd love if you'd also give my NEW page a like!

Alright sweet friends, that's all for today!

Big bloggy hugs <3
