Another thing to look forward to next week: One of my favorite stamp companies, WPlus9 Design Studio, asked me to be on their design team for the summer. I am overjoyed. I know not all of you consider yourself crafters, but I'm about to begin my pursuit of persuasion. Ladies and gentlemen, ANYONE can stamp. (No seriously, men. I know some fabulous male card-makers.) You can make cards that are simple and sweet or fantastically elaborate. I usually sit somewhere in between, but I've been known, when I'm in a crunch, to grab white cardstock, a funky color ink pad, a simple stamp and call it good. I'm going to show you how to make stamping your "thing" next week with Dawn's releases of the fabulous June stamps. Woot! (Thank you, WPlus9, for the opportunity!) Here is an example of a card I made with WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes.
And lastly, June is the beginning of my focus on health. Did you know that I used to be a health counselor? It is true. I used to teach people how to lose weight and how to exercise. And now here I am, three kids later, needing to take my own advise. I'm going to be discussing my journey here on Sherbet Blossom. If anyone wants to join me, I'm going to have a weekly focus and maybe a healthy giveaway. This new focus is NOT about losing weight (although I'd like to); it is about being healthy. So, anyone can join in.
See you next week!
