NOTE TO OUR BLOG FRIENDS

Over the years we’ve been honored to be a part of the community of loyal artists who have participated in our challenges.   This Summer 2016 issue of Stampington & Co.’s “Artful Blogging” features our own Marie Markham with five pages of her beautiful work, and the story of our journey to challenge blogs.   We wanted to share this good news with all of you, since it’s your participation in our challenges that is an important part in drawing the attention of the magazine.

NOTICE TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AT TAKE A WORD


Commenting is hard work on the blogs.  This has persuaded us to apply an InLinkz feature which will allow everyone to link his or her picture to each challenge, allowing fellow members to click on each link to leave a comment starting next Monday. Unfortunately, thumbnails won't be added.  When you are linking, make sure to type in your name and the theme word where indicated.

As this is new to us there may be some glitches at first.  If the link isn't working next Monday, leave comments in the usual way.  If you would prefer not to use the link system, the comments section will still be in place.
