Today I felt it was time to say “thank you” to all of you. I have never experienced so much kindness than what I received this past weekend in my blog comment area after the StencilGirl Blog Hop. And you know what? It didn’t end there! I received sweet words of affirmation on instagram, fb and into the StencilGirl social media platforms, as well as some of the stencil designers themselves. So, THANK YOU! And if all that wasn’t enough, I reached a momentous milestone on instagram (1 K followers) and I want to thank you for that too! For those of you who don’t know me, I am not a numbers girl. I am a people person. I am more concerned about connecting than adding a “point” on any analytical spectrum, though from a business perspective, I completely understand. But as my friend Stephanie Ackerman wrote on her post, “I am not concerned about numbers. I am only responsible to One”, the same goes for me. I am passionate about art, it’s what I love to do and I like people (well, most of the time, lol), irregardless of numbers. I am going to celebrate this fete however, because it is a joyous occasion and not something I created or made happen. So for each person who leaves a comment on my blog, instagram or fb, about why you like to create, you will be entered to win a Main Attraction by Spellbinders, with a total of 5 being given away on Friday.
Have you ever heard of the Main Attraction? It is a trendy magnet that picks up thin metal dies, sewing pins, needles and paper clips and can function as a paper weight as well. No need to be a crafter to own one. And I love the shape. It doesn’t look like a magnet. This was a concept and design idea I came up with after loosing countless little dies at work, never to be seen again. Spellbinders immediately started working on sourcing and producing this little tool and it is literally a staple now. (You can find it here). It will actually SAVE you time & money in the long run. Wave it over all your papers and somehow, those little die guys are attracted to the magnet and come out from hiding. Remember to leave me a comment about why you like creating and you will be entered to win one of these little “gems”, pun intended ;). So, what say you?
