Welcome Glue Arts Hoppers!

Animations

Well hello!!!

And welcome to my blog!

I've come to really enjoy blog hops and all the new faces coming through. So thanks for stopping in!

If you've not visited my blog before...let me tell you just a bit about myself.

I've been involved in the paper craft industry for over 12 years and have been fortunate to find employment these past few years in this very industry.

I'm very excited to say I am the new Glue Arts Social Media Coordinator...which means I coordinate their blog, Facebook and Twitter posts and their Glue Girls Design Team. It's one of those pinch me types of jobs that I'm very thankful for.

I have three great kids and a cute hubby! And speaking of cute we do happen to have the cutest Boston Terrier ever...named Peso! I really love paper crafting although I do miss that scrapbooking has taken a bit of a backseat lately. I'm fortunate to be on TV once a month here in St.Louis on a fun show called Show Me St.Louis and I also write craft articles for the St.Louis Post Dispatch. I'm called the Craft Mom and you could say...crafting IS my life!

And speaking of crafts....I'm busy working on Halloween crafts...which are honestly my favorite..because Halloween has become my favorite holiday. I think it's because it's just fun. No stress of gift shopping, gift giving and all that...just lots of fun and candy. {oh and cool decorations which we are all about!this is a peek of my house last year}


If you page down to the prior blog post...you'll see a new craft I made and if you search the blog...there's many others. Here's a sneak peek though of the Haunted House I'm making using Echo Park's new Happy Halloween line and Cricut's new Happy Hauntings and October 31st Cartridges...which I LOVE!!

If you're a Halloween nut like me...please bookmark me and be sure to check back in over the next few weeks as I'll be sharing lots of fun Halloween ideas!! I'm afraid though I must direct you on as there more amazing designers for you to hop to and you need to find out who are the four new Glue Girls!! But before you go...please be sure to leave a comment to be entered for a chance to win a Glue Glider Pro and refill of your choice!!

And remember if you want another chance to win {as if 12 wasn't enough!lol} keep track of the names of the four new Glue Girls and email them in to Gluegirl@gluearts.com. You have through this Sunday, September 12th to complete the hop and enter to win!

Now I'll send you off to the amazing and oh so talented Sherry Wright!!

    I'm a HUGE fan of Halloween!! My hubby and I were just discussing decorations and when we could start putting them up. We decorate outside for all the trick or treaters and we all dress up too! My son, husband and I love the reactions kids and parents have when they come to our scary home. We even have had people ask us to pose for pictures so they can share it with friends! I'll be stopping by to check out your ideas for Halloween!! Boo-tiful
