Hello readers and welcome back from a long, holiday weekend! I have an exciting announcement to share with you today. . . I have been selected to join the amazing Design Team at Butterfly Reflections, Ink. for the fall/winter 2019 term. I've known for a few short weeks now, but had to keep it quiet until the store announced it earlier today on their blog. Butterfly Reflections, Ink. is a small woman-owned and operated craft store that opened just over a year ago in May of 2018 in Kingston, New Hampshire. While I have yet to visit the store in person (my mom and I are planning a road trip on Black Friday!) I am delighted to be joining Vanessa's team of amazing designers and fellow artisan's. If you live in southern Maine or New Hampshire, or Eastern Massachusetts, please consider visiting. Butterfly Reflections, Ink. (BRI) carries SO many products online too, including the newest releases from fan favorites such as Lawn Fawn, My Favorite Things, Newton's Nook and many, many more! But, even better, because the store is located so close to me in New England, it only takes 2 days for shipping! No more waiting!
Now, I'll introduce you to a few other talented ladies who will be joining along on this DT journey with me for BRI:
First up we have Tiffany Beuning. Tiffany is from Las Vegas, is a high school counselor and is married to a great guy who supports her craft habit.
Next up we have Jane! Jane is a working professional by day and a crafter by night. hehe She lives in Southern California with her husband, 19 month old daughter and her 2 year old Westie (aka her first child).
Next up, we have Amanda Willett. Amanda is from Kentucky and just 25 years old! Her grandmother used to work for American Greetings and after some time of giving/receiving the same cards, she got into cardmaking.
Candice Fisher is last, but certainly not least! She is an active mother of three (21, 18 and 16) and two of them are now in college. She is lucky to have an understanding hubby who supports her love of all things crafty, especially cardmaking. She's also been scrapping for 16 years and used to work for Archiver's as a class instructor.
On Wednesday I will be sharing the first card I created for the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. Design Team, but I hope in the meantime you will check out the BRI store online HERE and be sure to follow Vanessa Middleton on Facebook and Instagram. Let's help these small, independent and local stores stay in business by showing our support!

First congratulations on being chosen for he team. Next thanks for sharing about a small business. The hours are a bit odd however, I have a friend who lives in Kingston so perhaps this will be a destination for us to get together at.

Another great find! You are so nice to share these companies' information; saves us crafters a lot of time looking for something new. I know you will be a wonderful addition to the design team and will enjoy sharing your creativity with more and more crafters. Congratulations!
