Momentous Day

Today marks a very important day for me.  I am officially now a small business owner.  My product is clear acrylic stamps.  They feature boys and guys. 

I always found it hard to find something sophisticated and masculine for scrapbook pages for my boys.  And since I have four boys, I am always on the lookout for something that is more than babies or sports.  Since they aren't old enough to be grooms or go to their high school proms, those products don't work either.

I was drawing my boys in my art journals as a way to relax.  After I had several of them drawn, I began to look at them in a new way.  I could see them as stamps!!  How great to have guys dressed in casual to dressy to tuxedo!!  I have loved the idea and my husband helped me get the equipment I needed to draw them into the proper programs and then started me off with my first stamp.

I recently was in Tennessee and the ladies I demonstrated the stamps to LOVED them!!!  They asked for one thing: smaller sizes.  They liked the 6.5 inch size, but also wanted something half the size.  So, I am currently working on 3.25 inch sizes of each stamp I plan to release!!

If you know an independent scrapbook store that you would like to see the stamps available in, please pass the information along to me and I will contact them.  Thank you so much for your help and support!!
