Today marks day 1 of my stint with Hero Arts as a Hostess. Read the announcement HERE.
I will say it here, there is no other company that rewards it's customers and fans like Hero Arts does. I've seen generosity, but they take it to a whole new level! I've been fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of Hero Arts' generosity in the past couple of years. But, being a Hostess (and being rewarded with a ton of new goodies to play with) is the best one yet! Why you may ask? Because in this role, I get to officially give back to the company that has given me so much.
I started stamping towards the end of 2008, just playing around and not really knowing what I'd be getting myself into. I discovered the Hero Arts flickr group in mid-November. I entered a challenge, the distress challenge, and the week after, I received congratulatory emails. I was wondering, what for? Turns out, one of my innocent entries had won in the 'Fresh Face' category. Then a month later, an even bigger surprise, the super fun Lisa Spangler had chosen me for her Win-a-Day selection!
Safe to say, without the confidence boost from Hero, I probably would not still be stamping today, at least seriously!
So, thank you, Hero Arts... for everything. And thank you to the wonderful flickr community that is beyond supportive and inspirational.

Clean and graphic, yes?
