They say time speeds up for us as each year passes. Wow, I’d say! When we started Cottage Arts 10 years ago this month, our oldest Alyssa was just a mere 12 years old and last week she was surprised with a wedding proposal!!!!! We are blessed and give thanks for this family business that has allowed us ample time with our three children as they grow.

So time for a party to say thank you for 10 years of support! Prizes and entry details are outlined in Friday’s newsletter (no purchase necessary to enter). To receive future newsletters, free sign-up is here. We’ll likely be sending out another newsletter or two during the celebration, if you missed this one.


  ALL Downloads on SALE 33% OFF
thru Monday, April 29, 2013! (including photo art blends)

Plus additional special offer…save up to 40%!

And for each of the next 4 days we’ll have inspiration and a blog freebie download for the day here, which will expire at 8am CT the next day (like always, they’ll be available in our shop if you miss them).

Today’s theme is Instagram and Chalkboard art. We released a new set of Chalkboard Love today (plus 6 other new downloads). Using the new art and hand drawn chalky AlphaSet, we’ve created a modern 12×12 Quick Page for you. Rachel filled it with recent Instagram shots.

Last week I got my first iPhone (5) after being an Android user for 4 years. Love both for different reasons. Kris, Rachel, I, and most of our team love playing with mobile apps and Instagram. Follow us on Instagram here to see how we’re using this evolving technology! More to come on our favorite iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch apps!

AND…we’ve curated a really cool information-packed Instagram Pinboard. Below are a few pins. Enjoy being inspired with DIY projects using mobile phone photos!
