New Blogmania Partner - Purple Vine Designs

I'm so excited to introduce you to our newest Blogmania Sponsor.  Kelly Jo Guastello operates Purple Vine Design.  As purple is my favorite color, Kelly Jo fits into Team Favorite Things perfectly.  Kelly Jo creates one of a kind, custom greeting cards.  From Thank You's to Congratulations to Get Well Soon, Kelly puts her heart into every piece she makes.

Based out of her home in Pawtucket, R.I., Kelly Jo started Purple Vine Design to share her creativity with the world.  I met Kelly Jo through Twitter and we have become wonderful friends.  She's a busy mother, grandmother and furry mother (she has 4-legged furry kids just like I do.)  Each card that Kelly makes is durable, adorable and guaranteed to put a smile on the face of whomever is receiving it!

When Kelly Jo contacted me about creating a set of custom cards for our Blogmania event, I was thrilled.  See, I love sending out handwritten impromptu cards all the time.  Call me old-fashioned, but people really appreciate knowing you took the time to tell them you care.  So for Blogmania, Kelly Jo is making a set of custom Thank You cards that the winner will be able spread smiles many times over!

Thank you Kelly Jo and Purple Vine Design for partnering with me for Blogmania in September.  Please Show Kelly Jo some love.  She's been selling online for quite some time, but she's just getting started blogging!  Check out her blog and her Etsy store so you can see more of her great work!  Here's how you can get in touch with Kelly Jo:


Kelly Jo added this about her special notecards for Blogmania: "I'm sitting in my little craft space (I work in our spare room which houses the 2nd refrigerator, overflow of can goods, treadmill and my closet--we live in a 900 sq ft 2 bedroom condo)  and I wasn't sure what I wanted to create.  I thought about your giveaway...My favorite things.  Then it hit...I had picked up some paper a few months ago and although there were so many things I could make with it, I kept holding onto it because it was my favorite paper.  I knew I could part with a few pages to make these cute little notecards.  The pink paperclip hearts were already sitting on my table and when I glued the paper to the cardstock, I knew I had to put them on the front! The other embellishments were easy to use, work very well with this paper and even though the notecards are very simple, I really like them!  I hope you do too!"

Kelly Jo, I love the pictures and I know you're going to get a tremendous response from all our wonderful friends and readers.

Great article thanks. I love reading your blog.
