I have a HUGE announcement to make today! I have been hinting at this for quite a few weeks on my blog, and maybe you have already figured it out.
In addition to making cards, I love to draw and paint. I doodle on everything...yes, even on the "notes" I take in classes and meetings! (lol) Every once in a while I would draw something and think about how awesome it would be as a stamp- but the thought never got much further than that. Friends and family told me that I should start designing stamps, but I never thought anyone (other than myself) would actually want them.
Well, my friend Tasnim Ahmed
started to design stamps for herself, and I was so impressed with her designs that I just HAD to know more! She said she was considering starting a stamp company, and that is when I confessed that I always wanted to design stamps - but I was too scared.
Well, I'm sure you can figure out the rest of the story: Tasnim helped give me the courage I needed and we decided to design together!!!
The company is called Altenew
, and the site went live today! I cannot wait for everything to be available in the shop, but until then you should definitely check it out
