Wanted crafters who love to use stamps in their projects.
As soon as I started stamping I became fascinated with how versatile they were and how many different ways they could be used. No surprise that I went on to start to designing stamps and create my own stamp company. I am looking other crafters from a range of backgrounds and crafts to join a special design team for one special event. It may lead to other design team projects in the future but at the moment I am just asking for people who can commit to a one off project that will span 9th and 10th June 2012. I am particularly interested in those who use stamps in more unusual ways.
The details of this event can be found here and here

Requirements include:
  1. The ability to produce 2-3 projects for the event.
  2. Good photography skills for taking pictures of your projects
  3. Projects posted with social media: Facebook, your personal blog, Oak House Studio Blog
  4. Possible participation in our blog, including writing your own posts
Does that sound fun?  If it does, it’s about to get better.  Here’s what I’ll do for you in return:
  1. The featured stamp plus inks and embossing powder sent to you in advance of the event.
  2. BONUS product chosen by YOU to be sent following your successful completion of this project.
  3. Link from our blog and Facebook page to your personal blog
  4. My undying gratitude and amazement for your creations
What do you need to do to enter?  That’s easy too!
  1.  Submit photos of 3 of your most favourite projects that highlight your own personal use of stamps, and links to your blog or gallery to (Projects do not need to use Oak House Studio products, but we’d love it if they did!)
  2. Submissions must be received NO LATER than Saturday 12th May, 2012.
  3. Write up a quick bio about yourself, mentioning why you’re interested in being on the DT, what experience (if any) you have with DTs, and why you love stamping.
  4.  Wait impatiently as I collect the submissions and choose who I can use for this project.
  5. I will keep your details on file and will contact you if I think you may be able to help us with design team work in the future.

Sorry to be missing in action yet again! I have been through an unexpected move which came out of the blue but was full of uncertainty which made it difficult to share with you all. It started with an off the cuff remark from a fellow artist at the farm, when she commented how much she loved my room there. For my part I love her room and offered to swap on the spot. Many weeks later I am now in the "new room" but with still some work to do to getting exactly how I want my room to be. But I am certainly "getting there" the old room is empty and now awaiting a tidy up before ceramicist Alison Brice takes up residence, probably some time in May.
If you fancy a look for yourself then come along on 6th May for a major sale and warehouse clearance. Refreshments on sale for £1 in aid of Breast Cancer Care. Why not come along and see our latest stamp designs and find out about classes we have coming up?
I guess that means I better get on and get those jobs finished.
