A blog makeover and a big announcement!

So if you're reading this in your Google reader you're going to have to jump over here and see my little blog's makeover. I started designing the pieces of my new blog months ago, and thanks to the help of Veronica over at VK Design Co. it all became reality today! Not only was she super helpful, she was SUPER fast. I mean SUPER FAST. Did I mention how fast she was?

And... if you glance around my new little blog, you'll see a hint at some super exciting news I need to share. I mean because really... it says 'Store' right up there in my header. At the beginning of January I will be releasing my very own clear stamp line right here on my blog! Every few months I'll be coming out with a new stamp design! And, well while I'm at it, I'll just go ahead and give you a hint ... it has to do with the 14th day of February.

Exciting right? And just to make this post even more fun... leave a comment between now and Thursday December 10th and I'll randomly pick one commenter to send my stamp set to before anyone else gets it! You'll be my one temporary design team member! I'll start a Google group just for us... okay jk!

Courtney - your blog is super cute!!! I really like your revamp - I know from personal experience it's less than easy to sit around and rework your blog :)

I don't make cards or scrapbook or anything like that because I don't have any supplies. I have really considered getting into the hobby but don't have a ton of funds to start right now :) It might give me inspiration to have supplies :)

Courtney...your new blog looks fantastic!!! HOW EXCITING for you to be launching your own line of stamps...I can't wait to see them!! You could also have a seperate Flickr group where card-makers and scrapbookers could upload their creations to show off their work and provide inspiration :)

Oh, being number one is never good for random picking, but I just had to comment! I'm so excited for you and this amazing adventure and I can't wait to see your very own set and it would be even better for me to try it out and be a member of your design team! You have wonderful cards I can't imagine what your very own set is going to be like!
