A couple of weeks ago I received an e-mail from the lovely peeps at Stampington asking if they could feature my blog on their newsletter - Postscript. Well, I had to think about that for about a nanosecond, and then I said of course they could! Yayayayayay! Like many of you I am totally in love with Stampington publications so it is a real privilege to be involved in this way.

What really delights me about this is that it is the result of a poll, so the readers chose my blog. I am totally humbled, and very honoured by this.

If you don't receive a Stampington newsletter, why not?!! You can click here for all the info. You can choose which of the several newsletters you would like to receive, and they won't block up your inbox. It is relevant info about all of your favourite artists, publications and products. The newsletter 'Postscript' is sent out just twice a month and contains:

FREE article and vintage ephemera downloads, featured handmade DIY projects, how-to video tutorials, contests, and endless inspiration.

Here's a little snippet from the latest newsletter, 'Postscript':
