It's Gettin' Busy Here...I Like It!


My day didn't go quite as I had planned. My son called not long after I posted my message to you this morning and said they had a change in plans. So instead of running around with a little one in the car, I ran around on my own. I had lunch with Paul, then I drove over to JoAnn Fabrics to see what's new. They are offering 40% off clear stamps right now, so I had to add to my collection. I also picked up some very cool Heidi Grace papers for fall and found some Debbie Mumm ribbon on the clearance rack.

I have been in touch with the rest of the AI (Artful Inkables) design team for a better part of the evening. We are close to announcing our first blog hop which coincides with the new release stamp sets for August and our bi-weekly challenges, so there are some fun things for you to look forward to.

So what else is going on here at The Open Window? I am in the process of putting a new design team together in time for fabulous new challenges you can take part in. I hope to announce those names and projects in the next couple of weeks or so. I know many of you are looking forward to playing and I can't wait. I am also starting a second blog that will have online classes and tutorials available just for you. So spread the word....THE OPEN WINDOW IS THE PLACE TO BE!

As for now....I hope you will come by tomorrow and see my new favorite blogs list. I also have several new creations in my Etsy store, which includes this card. I hope you will check those out. Last but not least, the participants in the tag swap are putting the finishing touches on their offerings and I am looking forward to receiving those soon. I will post a photo of the entire collection for all to see.

The day is coming to a close here at The Open Window....so I will see you tomorrow!
