Phew! Time to get the cobwebs out of here and get this blog rockin' and rollin' again! Hmm, maybe I'll save the cobwebs for Halloween...add some glitter...
Sorry, went off on a craft tangent there for a moment. Allow me to introduce myself - I'm Jen, owner, head paper-crafter and chief coffee-drinker of Caffeinated Papercuts. I'm also a proud member of OOTBS, making my debut in the June Men's Box and contributing again this month in our August Sand in Your Shorts box. If you got a box (and if you didn't, why not??) and it had a sweet little lighthouse card in it, that was me! So, what am I doing here? Well, I'm your new blog host! Michelle asked for help from the team members with blogging, Facebook posts, Twitter posts, and Pinterest. Let's face it, the lady is AMAZING but was juggling a LOT of different tasks. Seeing as this is a team sport, we all stepped-up and are pitching in. I, personally, volunteered for the blog as I am now quite skilled with the little "schedule this blog post to publish later" button. Ah, the things you learn on vacation!
A little about me; I'm the mother of a rambunctious 23-month-old boy and the wife of an equally rambunctious husband. We share our house with 5 kitties, of which all but my adorable baby girl are boys. You getting the idea now why I like running off to the craft room? I'm surrounded by BOYS! Don't get me wrong, I adore them, but a girl needs a break every so often. I'm a CAD Designer by trade, but after getting laid off last February became a stay-at-home mom and started putting more energy into my crafting. Anything involving paper you'll find in my store (I do so love pretty paper) from custom wedding invitations to greeting cards, stationery, tile coasters, magnets...and if it's not there, ask me. I can probably make it. Online you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and my own blog. Offline I live in beautiful upstate New York, about 45 minutes west of Albany. When I'm not trying to tame the laundry piles, I'm crafting for the next craft show and Etsy. Sometimes, if I'm really lucky, I get to read a book!
So, what can you expect to find on the blog now? I'll be featuring each of the OOTBS team shops, talking about giveaways, upcoming sampler boxes, promotions...everything OOTBS related! It should be a lot of fun, and I hope you join me for the ride.
Until next time,
