New, new, new!

Hello. I hope the weather is treating you kindly where you are as it is pretty wet, grey and miserable here.

Today's the day I finally get to start sharing the lowdown on our new Design Team. Over the next week each of our new DT members will intoduce themselves, and share with you a favourite project they have made which they feel reflects their style. Just a little getting to know you.

The first posts of new six week DT cycle will start w/c 18 November when I will show you the new kit the team will be working with, plus a workshop project I have made using the kit. The DT members will then blog their projects over the following four weeks. The cycle will end with a little challenge to keep you occupied over the Christmas break - can't have everyone eating, drinking and making merry all of the time! Alternate cycles will then end either with a challenge or with a Guest post from a fellow blogger we admire.

As part of the of the 'getting to know you' I have agreed to a little introduction myself. Don't worry, I'll keep it brief.

For those who don't know me I'm Val, an addicted stamper of over 20 years standing and I'm rather liking my new inky/painty/stampy behind the scenes perch. I was a partner in Snazzys until the Spring of this year and will continue to teach workshops there and create samples for them. I will also continue to demo at some shows and, for the moment, will also do the admin on Snazzys blog.

I don't know really know I have a style of my own but I'm happy to work with pretty much anything as long as a stamp and ink appear somewhere along the way. My favourite make has to be my Steampunk Phantom who was actually made entirely from leftovers from other steampunky projects which appeals to my mean Scottish blood lol! He is looking a little jaded these days but still my favourite and perched by my desk.

Thanks for popping by and I'm sure you will give a warm welcome to our new Design Team over the next week.

Val xx

Val - are you no longer a partner in Snazzys? Does this mean you won't be there when I next pop in?

See you on the 16th for our workshop - how are those photos coming along?

Oh I'm sorry Kathy you don't get shot of me that easily lol! Snazzys is now wholly owned by Don, but I can still be found in the studio with the kettle on. Photos hopefully tomorrow, I'm madly fussy cutting the final bits now.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 16th xx

So looking forward to be introduced to the new DT here even I still will miss all the old ones too, but totally know, that we all need a bit change in life some times, so wishing them all the best in the future and look forward to see, what the future will bring here too.

I'm looking forward to meeting the second generation Snazzy's DT too! Your Steampunk Phantom was one of my favourites too and I loved the workshop. I call mine The Terminator though and he sits on my workbench behind me keeping a bright blue beady eye on everything I do, lol!
