We're Coming Back!

Hello Festive Friday Fans! We trust you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones and that you're enjoying the New Year so far... It's already time to start thinking about a new set of Festive Challenges coming your way!

We have a few announcements to make, so let's get right to it.

We know you're all eager to get to work on your stash of Christmas cards, so we are excited to be bringing you our first challenge of 2014 next Friday, January 17th! The new one will go live at midnight PST, so keep a lookout! There are some changes to the challenge this year, so we'll tell you more about that next week, also.

Now, we have some fun news to share! We are excited to have not one, not two, but three extremely talented new designers to our Festive Friday Design Team! We are so honored to have these ladies joining our team, and we think they'll round out the diversity of our team very well.

In no particular order (just the order the photos came out of my folder!), may we introduce:

I used to be a complete Scrooge until I started paper crafting about 7 years ago; now I LOVE the holidays and think the idea of Festive Friday is genius and so much fun! I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the FFDT in 2014. My favorite things to make are cards and tags, and in the last year or so I’ve also become a little obsessed with clever and beautiful packaging. Sometimes I prefer a vintage look with lots of layered details; other times I’m happy to leave a project simple and sparse. Always, I’m inspired by fellow crafters’ creativity! When I’m not working away in my little studio, I have an amazing husband, 3-year-old son, and baby girl who keep me pretty busy. We live in sunny Southern California, but I’m a New Yorker at heart (small town; not the city!). I’m looking forward to a fantastic year here at FF!

Hi, I'm Kay Miller. I live in the middle of the Ozark mountains with my sweet hubby, two fabulous kids, and quite an assortment of furry friends. I've been stamping and making cards for almost 20 years now, ever since I wandered into a stamp store in Anacortez, Washington, while visiting my Grandfather. I spent all of my travel money there, and then got into serious trouble for staying too long. From that day forth, I have been hopelessly in love with stamps. I am so very excited to be part of the Festive Friday Design team! Making Christmas cards is one of my most favorite things in the world to do! :)

Hello there!  I'm so thrilled to be on the Festive Friday Design Team.  I'm from Loveland, Ohio (just north of Cincnnati).  I'm a mom to four boys, Ryan, Jonathon, Collin and Marcel. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Pat. I work full time and I absolutely love creating cards.  Creating is the best relaxation!  I've been blogging since July 2009 and love this wonderful community of bloggers!

Please help us welcome these ladies to our team! And don't forget to come back on Friday for our first challenge of the year!
