Stuck on Poe

We have a dark month planned for you at Gingersnap Creations during October! For inspiration we are turning to Edgar Alan Poe, the 19th century American writer best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre. We will also be unearthing our glue sticks to create some glue books with help from a very special muse (see below)!

This month, we are delighted to welcome Alpha Stamps as our October sponsor.

Alpha Stamps is an internet only rubber stamp company headed by Leslie Elledge in Martinez, California. They offer a wonderful selection of rubber stamps, collage sheets and supplies. In addition to their website, you can find lots of inspiration on their blog and also in their active swap group.

We are thrilled to welcome Mary Green as our October Muse. Mary is an extraordinary mixed media artist, who is especially well known for her vintage glue books. You will be able to enjoy a showcase of Mary's work tomorrow and two posts from her during the month.

Our visiting artists this month are Melissa Ustik and Debbie Reid. We are excited to share their artwork with you - we know it's going to inspire you!
