May Authentique Imagin-ation be creative


Welcome to a crafting extravaganza all week featuring myself and other Artists In Residence from IMAGINE Crafts, along with the Design Team Members of Authentique Paper and May Arts Ribbon.

We were asked to take a self portrait, but as my hairdresser cancelled my last two appointments my fringe has gotten a bit long…..


Welcome to my blog, by now you have probably established that I am a little crazy, but hey it takes all sorts to make life fun! Enough with the frivolity down to the serious stuff… here is my creation.

Prizes galore for participating in the Blog Hop this week!

All three participating companies in this week’s Blog Hop will all be giving away 3 prize packages for leaving comments on the featured blog posts.  Each day will we feature projects created by the artists from IMAGINE Crafts, Authentique Paper and May Arts. Simply visit their blogs and leave a comment on each post by midnight PST September 27th.  We ‘ll randomly select three different blogs from the seven days, then randomly draw one commenter from each blog as the winner.  


Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found,” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog’s name), and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.
