Our vision for our publications is to showcase the work of amazing everyday artists and inspire beautiful new projects/layouts/cards/jewelry in the process. So, seeing Julie's post on the Cosmo Cricket blog the other day with a layout inspired by one of our favorite projects in the feb/mar issue of Simply Handmade is really exciting for us! (In fact, I think my mention of it was the first time Tammy cracked a smile in a week filled with 2 very sick, snotty, and clingy kids, doctor visits, impending work deadlines, and a cold of her own to boot.)
We get the opportunity to work with such wonderful and talented people every day and it is a lot of fun to see how one great piece can inspire another work of art. Thanks to Julie for posting and to Pamella Brown for the inspiration! Oh, and you can download directions for Julie's layout and that cool flower on their blog.
