Happy First Anniversary, Emerald Creek Dares! I am thrilled to be joining the talented Design Team, and what better way to start than with my favorite theme "Anything Goes"! I made my "Remember" card as I think back to the first time I entered an Emerald Creek Dare and won! I am so thankful to Kim for inviting me to join the Team! I hope I won't disappoint her!  I can't wait to see what this next year at  Emerald Creek Dares brings! If you would like to see how I made this mixed media card, I have a step out and close ups on my blog sarascloset.

How exciting to be a part of this one year celebration !!!  First, a huge congrats to Kim and her entire team!! Now for my piece. I wanted to showcase a couple of stamps that I have had for a while and just knew they had a special place in my home....

Happy Anniversary PT2 - Anything Goes

Happy Anniversary - PT 2the Wonderlust Designs! Because we are creative, we get bored with anything ordinary, so follow along as we re-cap the year and express our wonderlust minds.
I am thrilled with this month of Anniversary Events. We have had 2 Instagram winners, we are about to crown 4 Facebook winners, we have 2 new DT members, Sara and Jessica (being featured later this month), and we have switched to month long contests with a 
$50 store Credit Voucher for the lucky winner!

All of this is because of you. You have walked with me and grown with me as I decided to launch forward from custom creating into full blown production & launching into stores. You joined me when I wanted to start developing and using my blog. (Luckily, I met Nicole Wright who steered my entry into blogland). I brought on an incredible design team. Then, I went to CHA where I met amazing industry leaders and designers; including 2 of my favorite female role models Eileen Hull and Wendy Vecchi (thank you…

Happy Anniversary Hero Style - Guest Jessica

Well I am delighted to have Jessica doing 1 more Guest post For Emerald Creek!
She Embraced the Super Hero Idea for this Anything Goes Challenge Month and created a beautiful tribute piece to her idol Frida Kahlo.
Check out this peak off her blog...
Hi Everyone, I'm back guest posting for Emerald Creek Craft Supplies today. The theme up on the challenge blog is superheroes. When I heard this my first reaction was "crap."  Don't get me wrong I love superheroes, but making art with and about them? I really had to put on my thinking cap.  I took this theme and went extreme. I made something to celebrate, someone I consider, an art superhero. Frida Kahlo.

..... that is what art is all about, trying to find your authentic self. ...

Happy Anniversary PT1 - Super Hero Style!

Let's Celebrate!
It's been 1 whole year since I started Social Media, blogging, and actually getting into the trade show circuit. All of you have been really the absolute best part of my experience. The love, support, sharing, participating, and everything in between has been the highlight and delight of this whole experience.

For those of you who don't know, I launched my very first DT inspired works and blog post with the theme of the 80's because that was the theme of my first retail show, the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival hosted by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine (Canadian Scrapbooker back then) and Creative Stitches.

Since then we have had 22 Winners (including today's), several fabulous Guest Designers, and so many bumps, bruise, successes, and tears. Thank you for sharing this journey with us.

We are changing up the Emerald Creek Dares Blog challenges and moving to 1 $50.00 winner per month. In addition to that, the Top 3 will be given each be given a Spe…
