May ANYTHING GOES challenge WINNERS (late)

Hello, friends!

I am so very sorry for the delay in posting our winners! It completely slipped my mind! I have been busy preparing a few items for my other job as I step back and take a break. It has been a lot of work and difficult for me personally; a time of rest is much needed. Taking a break means I now have MORE time to craft! I just hope I can post on time:) LOL!

Anything Goes challenges are everyone's favorite- and it shows! We had SOOOOOOO many entries! WOW! THANKS to all who shared creations for our challenge!


CONGRATULATIONS to our winners!

Hi friends.
My Dad was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and was referred to Hospice, so I am trying to figure out the best way to take care of him during this difficult time. I am still filling orders but new Paper Smooches releases are still on hold.

Sending so much love to all of you and hoping you are safe and well <3

THANK YOU Audrey, Larissa, and Kathy!!!

Friends, HELLO!!!!

Savannah O'Gwynn here today! I wanted to pop on and say THANK YOU to our 2020 first term PS Challenge Design Team. Please feel free to share some love below for our team!!

If you know me... then you know that these posts are hard for me to write! Picking winners- hard! I wish everyone could win🙃 Saying goodbye to a fabulous team- SUPER hard😭 I wish we could be on the team forever!! I also wish we could all craft together in person- how fun would that be!?!?!?

The first term DT knocked my socks off with each challenge. I loved opening the emails from them with their projects- I would save them, not opening them or peeking at them until the night before the challenge so that I could be surprised by what they made. Let me tell you... it was like Christmas every time! The anticipation and surprise and then the WOWZA of seeing their projects---- AMAZING! We really do have some amazing teammates🤩

Audrey blows me away with her coloring, design, and photos! WOW! I have asked multiple times for her to teach me how to color- watercolor, Copic coloring, ANYTHING! I just want to be like her!!! Here's my favorite project from her.
Larissa literally comes up with the most amazing designs- using dies and stamps in ways and combos I never thought possible! Makes me think, "Why didn't I think of that!?!" LOVE it all! Here's my favorite project from her.
Kathy's projects are down right beautiful! Jaw dropping, which usually makes me wonder how she did that! I loved that Kathy would send me two photos each month- different angles and styles. I wanted to share both each time! LOL! Here's my favorite project from her.

AudreyLarissa, and Kathy -thank you! Thank you for your patience with me as a DT Coordinator! Thanks for sharing such amazing creations each month! THANKS for being a part of our team!!! It's an honor to have worked with you, and I hope that this isn't the end (actually I know it's not! We will be in touch! Especially since you all have to teach me how to craft just like you!!!). 

And with that... we welcome our new DT members: Nicole, Kristina, and Shelly! Welcome ladies!!

Be sure to stop by and play along with our first challenge for May--- ANYTHING GOES! Click HERE for details to join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Many blessings ❤️Sav

Hi friends
checking in :)

All is well here. we are moving, so that has taken all of my time and attention. We are moving closer to my daughter and grandkids, so that is a wonderful thing <3 

I am working on inventory and organizing my products since the sale drove in more orders than I imagined. I am not placing reorders at this time. I hope you are all finding lots of creative time.


smooches,
Kim

Easter Sunday Recap 4.12

Happy Easter, friends! Christ is RISEN!!!!

I pray that you are doing well and staying safe and healthy! These times are uncertain and definitely different for all of us. We are taking it one day at a time ❤️

I've been MIA lately due to my job- who knew I had another job!!?!? LOL! I did get some time to play with some of my Paper Smooches stamps and dies this weekend. I even used some dies that I've never used before! It was a much needed break from everything going on 👏🏻 I created a birthday card for a very special friend. Here's a sneak peek! **NOTE: I think this actually fits our color story challenge!!! My yellow is a bit off, and I have a few extra colors... but it's close enough:) 
Speaking of birthdays... Kim's celebrating 49 this week! In honor of her birthday, she's having a HUGE sale! I'm talking HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE! Check out the details HERE! Hurry and grab some goodies before April 16th.
And don't forget to join in the fun with our current COLOR STORY challenge! We are using pastels as our color palette. You can link up HERE or down below.

checking in...
I hope you are all feeling well <3

We are healthy here. I am doing my part with social distancing. It was tough to close our Paint & Wine Studio in mid-March but I know it was for the best. We hope to be able to reopen in May. Owning two small businesses is so incredibly scary at this time.

There won't be a Paper Smooches blog hop tomorrow BUT there will be a SALE - a huge one!
There will not be a new release either. Life is crazy right now and we are selling our home and moving in April. So a new release on top of everything else would be a challenge. We will be closer to our grandbabies, so that is a wonderful thing.

More details tomorrow...please stay tuned...

(So Lovely, Rainbow Sherbet Paper Pack)


Because of the availability of soda fountains in the Eastern US when soft drinks became popular, Easterners referred to the drink as soda. As the midwest did not yet have them, the drink was called pop because of the sound a cork or cap makes when being removed from a bottle.

smooches,
Kim
