A Dream Come True...

Hey everyone!

Remember when I mentioned the reason why I haven't been blogging consistantly?  Well here's the reason why... I have some amazing news to share.  Today a dream that was conceived almost a year ago comes to life for my crafting buddy, Renate' Winter and myself.  We are joining the stamping community as owners of a little shop called Yumi & Fumi Handmade. 




We partnered up with an amazing illustrator who totally gets us.  She's talented and super sweet.  So it's been late nights, long weekends, chats on FB, or Google chat trying to get everything completed for this week.  Why you ask?  Well we will be selling our own brand of chibi/anime style stamps named Yumi & Fumi at our big launch this weekend (July 14-15) at the Stamp in the Hand Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson, CA.  A fitting place for us to start I think. 

We are still working out the kinks on the website and the store, but our blog is up and running so head on over there to see it and let me know what you think.  Grab our kawaii badge that my awesome buddy Renate' created and add it to your blog.  Become a follower and help us spread the word. : )

We're having a mini blog hop (July 12-15) with our design team who you will get to meet tomorrow.  I posted snippets on the blog of some of the cards that will be show cased during the mini hop.  I know I'm such a stinker yea?  hahaha!!  I really didn't want to give too much away.  At that time you will get to see our first set of stamps.  We've gotten a lot of good reviews from family, friends and some unexpected husbands.  All really positive and that just makes this all worth it.

Now that everything is finally out I am planning to get back in to blogging and visiting more.  I am also behind on a few projects for some really important people and it's about time I get back on track.  Apologies to you folks! 

Hoping you all will take some time to visit the blog over the next couple of days and let me know what you think and help spread the word...  And if you are in town, come visit us at the Carson Rubber Stamp Show.

Mahalo for your patience and for coming here to leave me wonderful comments.  I read each one and get all tingly inside.

Have a lovely day!!
Hugs,
Leanne
