Studio Sunday, Free Giveaway Winner and Upcoming Move

Happy Sunday!  We've got beautiful blue skies here today and the grass seems to be getting greener which is a great sign!  Hopefully we won't see any more snow.  I know you are excited to find out who has won the set of the new Garden Party rubber stamps that launched last weekend at

I cut out all the fabulous comments from my blog post and mixed them all up in a bowl and pulled the winner's post!

Congratulations Tina!!!!!!

I hope you enjoy my new stamps and send pictures of what you create with them!!!  Send me an email (mapplinhapp at gmail dot com) with your mailing address and I will get these right out to you!

Over the next few weeks, I will be gearing up to make my next move to a new location!  I'm purchasing a house and will be closing this month!  It's a nice feeling to know that this will be the last move I make for at least 10 years but the thought of packing, organizing and cleaning 2 houses before being able to get settled again is not something I'm looking forward to LOL.  The good thing is that we (me, my sister, niece and nephew) will be moving only a few miles from where we currently are and can take our time preparing.

I promise to share pictures soon!

I am sooooo excited to show you this today!  Barbara ( and I have been collaborating more on some rubber stamp ideas and today she is releasing the first set of 13 rubber stamp images.  For those of you who have been hanging around my blog for a few years, you will remember this set of 4 images called Garden Party that were actually thermofax screen designs featured in this DVD back in 2012 where I teach you how to create these types of images in Photoshop Elements 10.  You can still purchase this workshop in digital download or DVD from Interweave.  Click on the image below.

Well, today, they are mini sized and available in top quality cling-back rubber stamp versions on  Click HERE to purchase them from Joggles.  Barbara continues to be an incredible business person, artist and friend and we will be doing more collaborations going forward!!!  Thank you, Barbara!!!
