New issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine

Some people make New Year's Resolutions.  The rest of us are too busy with trade show season!  So, instead, my ideas are implemented after the shows are over...or at least, after all the planning is over....and I finally have a break to just think.

Here then is my announcement: As a new feature on my blog, I will be posting whenever new issues (and published articles) are available in Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine (or any other publication).  I will also be featuring new stamp images, along with projects.

One thing I have heard and read repeatedly is that a blog not only needs to include content that is of interest to the reader, it also needs to engage.  I am not normally in the habit of running about shouting "look at me! look at me! look at me!" whenever I have new stamps released with Impression Obsession ...or new textiles available...or even new articles published in magazines.  It isn't because I don't want to share the information,. It is because when these items become actual items and I get my samples, I'm ALWAYS in the middle of another creative frenzy and caught in dozens of deadlines. Blogging requires a whole different type of concentration and time I don't have when I'm in high creative mode or have a deadline looming in front of me. Unfortunately, there is just one of me since I haven't yet been cloned. Which is why you will often seen huge gaps in the dates of my posts.

However, I am resolving today to be much more diligent in sharing all these wonderful releases and publications and creative stuff in general with all of you! This, of course, is easy for me to say now when I am in the middle of a much needed brief break and have time to think and breath before my next deadline next week.  We will see how long this lasts....

So, without further is the new issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts magazine with an 8 page technique article by yours truly!

Just the first page of my 8 page article on Wet Media Spritzing!

And some of the projects within the article...different styles...different mediums...
