FREE Blog Candy and my Sunday Sun article/video!

Share |

You can imagine my excitement when I learned that a FULL-PAGE article about me was in the Toronto Sunday Sun this past weekend!

I had had Sun reporter Ian Robertson contact me and then come for an interview back in December, since he had heard about my Stampin' Palooza event from my friend Velarie and thought it sounded like a fun story.

I'll admit that it was a bit of a thrill to have him come by the studio one morning as Christyne and I were preparing for a class, until the VIDEO part arose.. yes, he wanted to film our interview too. EEK!

Let's here it for the wonders of video editing though, since the little blurb they did turned out pretty good and made me sound much smoother than I am in real life :)


So go ahead and read the article, watch the video, and then let me know what you think by leaving a comment below!

On Saturday the 6th of February, I'll draw from all the names and give away a free "Welcome Neighbour" Designer Paper pack to the winner. Easy peasy!

Hi Caroline: I am really computer illiterate and didn't know how to comment re the video interview and your Sunday Sun Newspaper article BUT you know my feelings re the newspaper article since I already sent you an email AND the interview, although short, you seemed so relaxed and explained the fun of stamping .....well done Take care Patricia on Patricia Ave.
This is so cool!

I hope this opens creative doors for more people who may not have tried it out before!
Hope you have another sellout for the February Stampin Palooza!
What a great way to 'spread the word' about a great craft that anyone can do. I do hope those that read the article will be encouraged to either enter the world of stamping or get creating more.
I met you once and was very impressed. I hope to meet you again.

StampingPaloooza looks like a LOT of fun. Too bad I'm in Calgary and it's in TO. One day, I'm hoping one day I can make it a regular occurrence where I can participate in these day.

All the best to you.
