Bonanza of good news

I just don't know where to start...First, I hit 300 followers this week and you know what that means, Blog Candy! I am blessed with a nice stash, so I thought I'd share with you.

You know the drill:
be a follower, put the pic of the candy on your sidebar with a link back to this post, then please leave me a comment telling me you would love to win.

 I will draw 3! yes three winners! I will draw the winner on March 31st. Here's just a small pic of some of the candy!



Next, I am oh so excited to be asked to join the Gecko Galz design team. They are a wonderful and fun papercrafting scrapbook supply company out of Texas. Their collage sheets are absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to begin creating with them! They also offer classes, retreats, lots of inspirational work from a stunning design team and a community to enjoy friendship. But wait there's more... they also have a GeckoGalz Papercrafting Yahoo Group  where you will find free collage sheets, challenges, swaps and prizes too. Please come on over and give us a look.




No, I'm not done yet, I am also on the UnRuly Paper Arts team as a columnist. The focus of my column will be the process of creating and the importance of narrative. The column will be called InkTuition. InkTuition is a play on words  combining both definitions of ink  and intuition. "Ink" represent our inks, paints, printed paper and photos. Intuition  is defined as the sense of something not evident  with out the use of rational process. As you can see, the key word is "rational" because how can you be rational if you are unruly!
Funny since in a previous life I was in charge of "Process Improvement" for a fashion company. Isn't it interesting how things go round and round and connect in our lives!

This is a blogozine started by the amazing Sharon Bliss, one of the creators of Gingersnap Creations. Here's her quote:
 
In the words of Thomas Edison, "There are no rules here. We're trying to accomplish something". There's no place better to break all the rules and be truly individual than in the world of art. If you like to get messy, try new things and generally carve out your own artful niche, then Unruly PaperArts is your kind of blogozine!
We'll be featuring articles on stamping, mixed media, collage,altered art, and scrapbooking. Each month, we will be posting a variety of articles, projects, and reader dares all in blog format so there's always something new to enjoy.

Come by on  April 1st to see our first issue.


I am so honored to be on these Creative teams and hope you will enjoy the pieces I create for them.

Hope you will have a wonderful week filled with lots of good news.
take care, gerri

  38. Hi, Gerri
    Well, I finally was able to leave a comment! Yay! I know you said you would enter my name even with an email, but this is even better.
    I have over 112 followers,(and was going to do a giveaway at my 100th), but things are way too crazy at the moment so I may do a giveaway in May after my oldest son's wedding. I'm just too busy to do it right now, but it is so much fun!
    Thank you again, and have a lovely weekend!
