You must claim your price by Friday, July 29th and the prize will not be shipped until the end of the promotion (8/5). 

Now for the reason you came to visit us today....

Books & Crafts with Ella Publishing Co. 
Featuring Angie Lucas & Wendy Smedley
Are you a reader who loves to craft? Or a crafter who loves to read? Either or, one or both, you'll have a home at the Books & Crafts show with Angie Lucas and Wendy Smedley. Join us for weekly creative projects and book reviews that revolve around the written word. You'll love the crafts we make for, because of, inspired by, or literally out of actual books. And listen in as we share the books that inspire us to create and live, live and create. We'll discuss books and eBooks that are related to creativity, writing, scrapbooking, crafting, photography, design, style, diy, decor, and more. Even fiction may find its way into our show, if it inspires us to make something pretty.


Angie Lucas, founder, president, and CEO
Prior to founding Ella Publishing Co., Angie spent 5 years as the managing editor of Simple Scrapbooks, a leading scrapbooking magazine, where she did extensive writing and ghost-writing, along with planning and carefully editing every issue and special issue. A graduate of Utah State University's professional writing program, Angie has actually been using her degree in her career as a professional writer and editor for the past 12 years. She's been a scrapbooker for even longer than that (but she's not about to show you her earliest pages). Angie takes a simple approach to her memory keeping, having cast aside any arbitrary rules about how, when, and what to scrapbook years ago. Angie lives in Utah with her husband, infant daughter, 16-year-old stepson, and spoiled dog. She enjoys writing, reading, crafting, running (on and off), playing the piano, singing, and volunteering at her church. She has co-authored two eBooks for Ella Publishing Co., Quick & Creative Quizzes and Journaling That Matters. Follow her on Facebook (Angie Hill Lucas) andTwitter (@angielucas), or visit her blog at angielucas.com.


Wendy Smedley, deputy editor, blog manager, and creative goddess

Ella's biggest cheerleader from day one, Wendy Smedley officially joined the team just a few months after the official site launch. Prior to joining Ella Publishing Co. as a partner, Wendy spent 7 years working as the creative editor at Simple Scrapbooks magazine. She's the author of three books, Start Scrapbooking: Your essential guide to recording memories(Memory Makers, 2010), The Organized & Inspired Scrapbooker, with Aby Garvey (Simple Scrapbooks, 2006), and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Scrapbooking(Alpha Books, 2002). She also co-authored an Ella eBook, Quick & Creative Quizzes, with Angie Lucas. Wendy also works for Big Picture Classes in a marketing capacity as well as teaching occasional workshops. Wendy lives in Utah with her husband and five sons (including one set of twins). She enjoys reading, crafting, antiquing, and trend-spotting, and she's a frequent guest on a local television program, Studio5. Follow her on Facebook (Wendy Mansell Smedley) and Twitter (@wendysmedley), or visit her blog, Endless Possibilities.
