One World One Heart Blog Hop

I am participating in this fabulous blog hop for a wonderful meeting of the artful minds!  I am an artist/designer/sales rep and just love this fabulous industry!  I have just come home for CHA (craft and hobby association convention) and am so excited to play with all the new goodies.  I think the art community is one of the best and most giving of all the industries.  Glad you came to see me!  Hop on my friends!

I started stamping at the age of 12 so I have been in this industry for too many years to count!  I love it more each and every day!  I am married and have two great boys that just make me smile...most of the time.  We have a ton of pets and if you need/want a pet please go the the animal shelters...so many there need a good home and they are the very best animals in the world!

We have just completed my Creative Space and it is fully stocked and read to go!  I already have deadlines and so many projects in mind.  I am now fortunate enough to represent several companies so if you are a store in MO you may be hearing from me soon. 

I just love to create and will going back soon to the basics and try my hand at drawing again.  30 years since I have really done any so am interested to see if I can still make a straight line.

I am thrilled to be part of this hop.  Prizes will be drawn for on the 17th of February at the end of the day.  I will have prizes in the mail within 24 hours of the time you respond to me!  YAY.  Please make sure and have your email or contact info in your post so I can contact you!!!!

Thank you Lisa for this great meeting of the minds in the artful life!

1:I will be offering two cards made with one Dreamweaver Stencil along with the stencil used! (projects soon to be posted!)

2:1 altered art piece (again, I will post this asap!!!)

But here is a sample of some of my work!

Please feel free to become a follower but it is not necessary to win the door prize offered!

Happy Creating and Good Luck!  Kristi
