Melyssa Connolly, owner and artist of Whimsie Doodles is having a NEW release today

One lucky winner will receive both of these images!!

We would also like to introduce our 3 newest members of the TPE family!!
These 3 ladies are great friends of ours and now...we get to design with them!!

Please join us in welcoming:

Arielle Gordon
God, my family, watching movies with my hubby Jeff, anything mocha, stamping, buttons, listening to my daughter Maisie babble, ribbon, most ethnic foods, playing trains with my son Alex, paper piecing, Nestabilities, bling, fishing at the lake with my Dad, kraft paper, pretty much every color imaginable, going to the beach, an occasional cocktail, talking to my mom on the phone every morning, sitting outside watching a thunderstorm, my ATG gun, playing with little critters I find outside, coloring with Copics, fried dill pickles, camping... AND being on The Pink Elephant's DT - thanks so much for the invitation!

mean people, when a single drop of water hits your scalp & rolls down your head, people who don't park correctly, cleaning house & paying bills, not having stamping time, injustice, trashy tv shows like South Park & Family Guy, cold french fries, shaving my legs everyday (but I still do it), slow internet connections, the animal rescue commercial that plays that Sarah McLachlan song because it makes me cry every single time...

Joni Wilson
Hello everyone! My name is Joni Wilson, and I am so excited to be here. I have always loved anything crafty, from play-dough and drawing to beautiful papers and fun embellishments. I was born and raised on the tiny island of Kauai, Hawaii and am now a proud army wife of 16 years. Together we have been blessed with our 6 children, all of whom I draw my strength, humor, inspiration, and patience from. The highlight of my day is when chaos is at its peak in my home, funny how that is also the time when I craft best. Thank you to TPE's awesome Design Team for welcoming me into their family!

Jennifer Hagfeldt
Hi, my name is Jennifer and I live in Oregon.
I am married and have three beautiful children ages 11, 7 and 3.
I love stamping, scrapbooking and just crafts in general.
I also enjoy photography. Especially taking pics of my sweet kids!

Jennifer also serves on our Scrap Team!! Here cards are so cute and she plays along each week with the Card Challenges, we just had to have her join us on the Card Team too!!

Welcome Girls...we are soooo happy to have you with us!!
