Smeared and Smudged Design Team

I am SOOOOOO excited!!! I have some awesome news to share! I am on a brand new Design Team! It’s for Smeared and Smudged, which is a place “dedicated to focusing on alternative art styling and unique ways to use rubber stamps. If you enjoy creating art using gothic, alternative, vintage, or out-of-the norm stamp images, you” belong with us!!!

If you’ve been on my blog for more than a day, then you probably realized that I’m not your typical crafter…. I like to do weird, creepy, and out of the ordinary. You won’t find too many super cute and sweet things here. Yeah, I do that stuff sometimes, but my heart belongs to the, well… the strange!

So I am thrilled to be a part of this up and coming group. I would love it if you visited the Smeared and Smudged Blog, and the Smeared and Smudged ning Group.

This is going to be so much fun for me, and I hope that some of you will join this rad group. With this DT, and the TTIC DT, I sure am going to have my hands full (in a good way of course!)… but I will definitely be crankin’ out some awesome stuff!!!
