Guest Blogger- Linda Chilcott!!!

Hi Everyone,

It's Guest Blogger Day here at Stampin' Queen Creations! What does that mean you ask? Well, it means that every Friday I will take off my crown and pass it on to a fabulous professional designer who's work I respect more that words can say. Today I pass my crown to my friend, professional CHA Designer, Linda Chilcott!!!

I am excited to have Linda as my Guest Blogger today! I met Linda a few years when I was helping my designer friend, Ann Butler, in the workshop she was teaching at the CHA show in Anaheim. Linda was taking the class at the time and she asked me for some help with the project she was working on. As I was helping her we struck up a conversation. Linda explained that she was new to CHA as a designer and the next thing I know we had spent two hours talking like we have known each other for years! I told her everything I knew about CHA, being a designer and the programs and opportunities that we have as designers. The next thing I know Linda is asking me to be her CHA Designer Mentor and the rest as they, is history!

Linda is a very talented mixed media designer and she loves adding new products to her designs. She also loves to learn new techniques and apply those new techniques to her work. She is always asking questions and looking for ways to better improve her work.

Linda's project that I'm sharing with you today is one of my favorites. I am always looking for new items to stamp on like the popcorn container I shared with you on Monday, and this project is something way out of the box! Linda's project is made from paint sticks that you can get a your local hardware store. I absolutely love that idea! I would have never thought of paint sticks!!!

For more information on Linda's work, please visit her website at www.whimsicalcraftstudio.com.  Go check out what she can do with paper napkins!

Linda, as your mentor and your friend I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you. You have come along way with your business and I know that if you keep working at it, you can achieve all of your dreams. Keeping moving forward!!!

Thank you for joining me. Until next time...
