Quixotic Paperie Anniversary Hop!!
It's the first anniversary of one of my most favourite on-line stores today, Quixotic Paperie, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when Elaine asked me to join in the celebrations as a friend of Quixotic!! Yep, we're having a blog-hop - yaaayyhhhh!!
If you're already following the hop, you should have hopped over here from Kim's Blog. If not, then hop back to the beginning at the Quixotic Paperie Store Blog. You won't want to miss a stop, as in addition to lots of fantastic inspiration, there are some prizes on offer (full details on the Quixotic Paperie Blog).
Quixotic Paperie was started on June 1st 2009 by Elaine Hughes. Having been an avid crafter (and craft shopper!) for a number of years, Elaine wanted to share her passion and see where it might take her - so, Quixotic Paperie was born! Since then, the store has grown, and now stocks a fabulous range of rubber stamps from around the world: The Greeting Farm, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, SCACD Stamps, Paper Makeup Stamps, Belles 'n Whistles, the Mo Manning for Stamping Bella range, Stempelglede and more! In addition, the store carries a large range of charms and embellishments, and a host of gorgeous papers for all your crafty projects! If Elaine loves it, you will probably find it at Quixotic Paperie!
In November 2009 the Quixotic Challenges blog was started, where you can find weekly inspiration from the wonderful Quixotic Paperie Design Team, and join in for the chance to win a monthly prize.
It has been a fabulous and wonderfully crafty year and here's to another one and hopefully many more to follow! Now here's my card to wish Elaine a very Happy Birthday/Anniversary and you'll see what a big fan I am when you look at the list of all the elements I used that you can get at QP!!
There will be THREE prizes awarded to celebrate the anniversary. To be in with a good chance of winning, people should comment at every stop, as the winners will be drawn randomly from all the comments. Full details of the prizes can be found at the start of the hop on the Quixotic Paperie Store Blog. The draw will take place on Sunday 6th June.
Thank you for joining us on the hop! Your next stop is at Kathy's blog - I'm sure she'll have something totally inspiring to show you, along with the rest of the fantastic line up of bloggers on the hop! Enjoy!!
