They're here!

I have two things to share with you today ~

First of all, I have updated my website with puzzle purse valentines and love token paperweights. This is the first time I've made the paperweights, though I've had them in my workroom ready to use for months. Just click the link HERE to go to the Valentines page to see what's available. I've already had some sales this morning.

I enjoy making the puzzle purses and other paper tokens of love each year, although this year's offerings caught me by surprise timewise. I have been busy with paper wreath orders and nearly waited to late to begin making the love tokens. However, I do plan on making more this week and will have them ready on February 8th. I think that will be my last update this season for valentines.


Second, I received the Winter 2010 issue of GreenCraft in the mail yesterday. One of my paper wreaths is on page 8! I was so excited when my daughter brought in the mail. It had been a year since the editors of GreenCraft had contacted me about featuring one of my wreaths, but it was definitely worth the wait.
This issue is full of eco-friendly ideas! The Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Somerset Studio also has a photo of my wreath on page 2. It's a preview of the GreenCraft issue. If you'd like to purchase a copy, you can find these issues and so many more at http://www.stampington.com/.

  5. Lana, I love the puzzle purses and the paperweights. They are precious. Congrats on the features in Somerset Magazines. Aren't they Fab?
    They must really get a lot of artists on the road to fame. You are headed in that direction, for sure.
