SO VERY EXCITING - NEW ISSUE CRAFT STAMPER OUT NOW!

Several years ago I used to teach in a local art college, and was in awe of one of the other teachers there who wrote projects for craft magazines - her subject was textiles.  I thought at the time that if I could ever reach the same lofty heights that I would be a totally fulfilled woman!  Well that time has come as not only have I had projects in Craft Stamper over recent times - but my most recent project has actually MADE THE FRONT COVER - 'REALLY TWEET'.  How truly amazingly cool is that?  I am just completely delighted!  Thanks Katy and crew. (The magazine will be for sale on the CI WEBSITE very soon, the little birdhouses are in the MUST-HAVE'S SECTION right now, and you will find the bird stamp ON THIS WEB PAGE).

Marvellous!

I am so glad you have a blog now Jean. You are definitely on my list to follow.
I am thinking about a new subscription to C.Stamper. I didn't renew it when they stopped the ATC swap, but I do miss it. I will be getting this issue as my sister is coming out to Spain for a visit and is bringing me a copy, but I have to be patient and wait until the end of the month. It sounds as though the wait will be well worth while.
I look forward to more ideas and lovely examples of work done with CI products. Kate xx

Jean, Congratultations on being CS Cover Girl. You definitely deserve this.
I do know what you mean about dreams and aspirations and the pure joy when they are reached.
Now you are the one whose artwork is inspiring others and making other crafters set their own goals.
Wishes
Lynne
