Congratulations to our winner from yesterday's post. Soon this crafter will be checking out why the new Cricut E2 machine is one of the hottest crafting electronic cutters out there. 

mysweetpaperdreams


Please contact us by email, put "7/26 Cricut E2 Winner" in the subject line and send us your shipping information. 
You must claim your price by Friday, July 29th and the prize will not be shipped until the end of the promotion (8/5). 



We are thrilled to introduce to you an amazing lady, beautiful artist and great hosts, April Meeker of Second Sister Designs. We first met her at bloggers conference and fell in love with her style and sassy personality.  




Embellish with Secondsister 
Come join Secondsister as she teaches how to create fabulous handmade jewelry in the latest styles. The show will cover basic techniques and skills for creating the jewelry you love. With a little time and patience you can learn to make your own jewelry and save a lot of money in the process. It's fun and addictive and jewelry is so much more meaningful when it is handmade.


April Meeker lives by the ocean.  But she hasn't been to the beach in over a year because she has two little one-year-old babies (Irish twins) that crawl into the water and find old cigarette butts in the sand to chew on.  She also has a seven-year-old son who tends to wander off on grand boyhood adventures with other strange children. She gets help wrangling this motley crew from a tall guy named Benjamin, who also happens to be the love of her life.

April is the owner/designer behind Secondsister Designs.  She has been making jewelry for almost twenty years and illustrating for the last few years.  She has hoped these ventures would make her rich and famous but instead they have made her happy.

You can read all about the Meeker family shenanigans on Suaviloquy.

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.

She's been a scrapbooker for even longer than that (but she's not about to show you her earliest pages).
