Happy New Year!

Hi everyone, and Happy New Year!!! I hope that you have had a wonderful holiday season. I don't know about you, but I have a little bit of a hard time getting back into the swing of things after the holidays.

Anyway, it is a new year and we have some new things to share with you. First, is new stamps! We are excited to be releasing 5 new stamp sets this Friday January 4th. I think you are going to love them as they are a great mix of styles to appeal to a variety of stampers. We will have some sneak peeks to share with you over the next few days, so be sure to check in daily.

Next, I would like to introduce our guest designer for the month of January. I am pleased to announce that Lori McAree is joining us this month, and we are excited to have her!

You have probably seen Lori's work on Splitcoast as she is a frequent participant in the daily challenges and was a member of the product focus review team. She is also a DT member for Crafty Card Gallery, and was previously a member of the Gina K's design team and was also a Sweet Stop Sugar Baby. Lori and her husband live in Saint Louis Park, Minnesota and they will celebrate their 20th anniversary in March. She has 3 sons. Lori enjoys NASCAR, cross-stitching, and of course stamping! Lori will be sharing her beautiful creations here with us on Tuesdays starting January 15.

Until then, I thought I would share a card that she recently created using the beautiful Graceful Calla Lily stamp set.

Welcome Lori, we look forward to seeing all the wonderful projects you have to share with us! Be sure to visit her blog Smiling While Stamping for some great inspiration.

Have a blessed day everyone. I hope that you are able to find some time to craft today, I know that I am hoping too :).
