Winter Rainbow at Paper Wishes!

I wanted to share this beautiful image with all of you! Here’s a spectacular double rainbow that owner Mike Jarvey spotted here at Paper Wishes. So glad he took a picture! As you can see, this rainbow ends at Paper Wishes’ warehouse – clear proof that there really is treasure at the end of the rainbow!

Paper Wishes Updates and November’s Design Challenge Winner!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We celebrated here at Paper Wishes with an employee potluck (conveniently held next door to my office). And we definitely feasted – on everything from chili to cornpone to black-eyed peas and beyond. Everything was delicious! I’m so grateful the Paper Wishes Team is as adept in the kitchen as they are here at work! 😉

Now, Christmas season is upon us in full swing – woohoo! I’m feeling ahead in some respects, but behind in others. Remember my lofty aspirations of having Christmas cards finished by now? Ha! That has been rescheduled for this coming weekend, unless my 2-days-overdue-not-that-I’m-counting baby decides to arrive first! (Please………)

November’s “Less Is More” Design Challenge had participants creating a coordinating set of four ‘minimalist’ cards – a tall order for such a busy month! And we were rewarded with some beautiful entries. Our winner for November is Daria Sikorski (bbcmom)! Check out her stunning card set, below:

Daria created her set using cardstock, Paper Artist™ 8 Circles & Scallops and 6 Layered Labels & 2 Swirls cutting dies, and several HOTP stamp sets including Kindred Spirits and Simply Susan! The contrast is so, so striking – impressive cards, Daria!!! Thank you for participating!

Paper Wishes Highlights:

  • I hope you’ve had a chance to watch this week’s webisode featuring Hunkydory’s Decadent Moments Luxury Card Kit! I love the whole ‘art deco’ look. To me, it just screams New Year’s (or any other special occasion)!!! Next week’s webisode will feature NEW Dee’s Distinctively cutting dies and let me tell you – the projects are amazing (as always) and not to be missed!
  • Saturday, December 6th is St. Nick’s Day and Paper Wishes will be offering some very special pricing on Santa stuff!!! Then Monday begins “It’s A Tasty Week…” National Pastry Day, Brownie Day and Ice Cream Day are all coming and we’ll be celebrating with delicious discounts on all the “tasty” things we have!
  • Also, December’s Design Challenge has been posted and I am sorry to say it will be our last Paper Wishes Monthly Design Challenge. A few forum members have expressed their regret over this, and I would like to say that while the challenge may be going away, we are actively looking into different ways to grow our Paper Wishes community and add additional channels for inspiration, creativity and learning! Exciting things are coming in 2015 so be sure to follow our blog for updates!

Have a fantastic weekend, and I truly hope you make a little time to create something you love!
