I can't believe it is almost October in a few hours! I am looking forward to October as I love fall. I have been busy painting a mural on some friends' nursery wall and it is turning out soooooo cute. I hope to have it all the way done by Tuesday. I am glad that Zachary loves his room...he is 5 months old and adorable. I am going to post a photo of a fun tote for Haloween. The stamps are my fav...Prickley Pear and I used Art Institute Glitter. It is fun! Hope everyone has a GREAT October!

Happy Creating

Hello Everyone

Hello All!


This is my first ever entry on a blog! I am kind of excited to get this started and hear from you and share my thoughts and things going on in my world of crafting! I love pretty much all paper crafts and many others as well. Stamping is my #1 love. I started at the age of 12 and have never stopped. My sickness got worse as I have worked within the industry for the last 10 years and love it more today than ever. I am privileged to be writing a column for Scrap & Stamp Magazine and just found out they want me to continue my Ask Kristi column for 2010! I will look forward to any questions anyone has to ask and will try to address those questions in the magazine. I continue to write articles and design for companies as time permits. Some of the companies I have designed for are as follows:


Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps (My personal fav!)

Northwoods

Luminarte'

Spellbinders

Coronado Island

Princess Mirah

Clear Dollar Stamps


I love the wide variety of products offered and enjoy about all mediums!



I am very excited about the upcoming Memory Expo in Topeka, KS! Date are October 30/31. I will be in attendance for the VIP meet and greet on Friday night and teach a Christmas Card class on Saturday along with some make & take projects and a demo or two. For more information go to www.midlandcareconnection.org. They have a great line up and are expecting at least 200 croppers and 1000 shoppers! It should be a blast...you will not want to miss the premier year of this event. It is for a great cause and who doesn't like to crop and shop!


I am posting a couple of my favorite projects that I have completed. Hope you enjoy them as well!


I guess this is it for my first entry...that was not as difficult as I thought it might be!


Happy Stamping and everything else,


Kristi
