You are Pawsome

Hi craft pals

                   Thank you for calling in . I do hope that you say hello and if you like my card , leave a few words in the comment box .

                  You are a human being and are allowed to be imperfect, 
                     and you are allowed to be flawed. 
                  There is a lot of beauty in your imperfections, in your uniqueness.

                          Ileana D'Cruz

 Stamp On It had it's humble beginnings in Holland MI 25+ years ago.... started out as a "home" business, soon became a storefront on the north side of Holland, grew to a 2nd store front in Grand Rapids, before closing the Holland store and enlarging the Grand Rapids one! We began doing small craft shows years ago, slowly adding rubber stamp conventions to our schedule, expanding to almost full time shows on the road before making the decision in the fall of 2009 to either close or sell the store. Before we were able to close the store, one of our employees voiced her desire to purchase the store! Long story short, we "sealed" the deal by the end of 2009 and became pretty much full-time rubber stamp convention vendors on the road. With the addition of a RV and new trailer we hit the road and attended 35 shows in 2010! In December of 2010, we traded in our first RV for a larger unit and in June, traded in our 16 ft. cargo trailer for a 20 footer capable of hauling more goodies to shows! By 2013 we traded in our 2nd RV and now travel a bit more comfortably in a 40 ft diesel RV equipped for the long hauls and our trailer has also grown to 26 ft. It has been a great adventure so far and we thoroughly enjoy the travels, conventions, and home-schooling. Please check our convention schedule to see when we will be in your "neck-of-the-woods" in 2017! Hope to see you soon... The RV Gang, Sam, Deb, Jesse, and Talia

We love seeing your entries each week however,  we must have rules for you to follow to keep it fair and fun for everyone. We only have 3 rules, but please read them carefully. 
  •  No back linking - all entries must be new and not posted prior to the start of the challenge.
  •  All entries must include a link - back to Through the Craft Room Door Challenge Blog
  •  Word Verification Blogs will not be commented on.  We are sorry but the length of time it takes to comment on blogs with verification makes it too hard on the DT to leave comments. 
 Thank you for your understanding!

I for one really enjoy visiting my number of entries . There is always something to admire about a shared hand made project . So I do hope that I see yours this week .

      Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .

My share for this 

The new weekly ATG challenge is up and running . Thanks to the DT who provided  inspirational samples to inspire you  this week . Hope we see you here too . 
Thanks to this weeks sponsor ......I could not get an image from our sponsor as I was a late DT inclusion  so I used my own SU stamp set .

The Project Bin was started because its founder, Denise Storck (a long-time stamper and paper-crafter), couldn't find a stamp that said "You are awesome sauce", so she decided to make her own!  One thing led to another, and now her small business fills a niche in the card making industry for unique word art sentiments in the highest quality photopolymer clear stamps, made in the U.S.A.                     

Prize: $15 Gift Certificate
