Save the date!

I would like to invite you to visit with Starving Artistamps on February 7 for the first ever DoodleFactory new release blog hop!

What’s this all about? Irene thought it would be fun to put the design team to work creating some super cool brand new projects with our brand new release!  And since this release is a whole lot different than what we have done in the past we thought we should do something to mark its arrival into the stamp world! We are so excited to see what you think of it and we really CAN’T WAIT to show it to you. 

So what you need to do is go to the Starving Artistamps Blog on February 7 and you will find a list of our designers blogs.  Start at the first name on the list and visit her blog to see her fun new release project(s) she will give you the link to the next designer’s blog and you can pop in over there to see the next great project and so on and so forth down the list it will go! 

You are going to want to visit all the blogs because one of them will be giving you some information on some delicious blog candy.

What is it?  Well… you will just have to wait and see!  So mark your calendar, save the date, stick up a post it, or write it on your hand but do whatever you have to do to be here on February 7th for our first new release BLOG HOP!!
