Day Ten & Last Stop on the Artsyville Tape Hop: Daisy Yellow!

We're shutting down the Artsyville Tape Hop in colorful style with one of my favorite art journalers & mixed media artists -- Tammy from Daisy Yellow! If you have not yet met Tammy, just block out a week of your life, start the coffee brewing and plan to stay a while. She is one of those linchpins of the creative community you need to know. She is so generous with her time and knowledge. Her blog is a picnic of color and she does everything she can to get people to just start creating. 

Check out Tammy's annual ICAD challenge (Index-Card-a-Day) challenge (finished for this year, but it will pick back up in the spring), 61 Paper Prompts, Art Journaling 101, and her archives of ideas (and more ideas and more ideas...) She also writes beautiful e-zines and produces sets of Creative Prompt Cards to give you artsy zaps right where you need them. Her post will be open for entries through Monday. 

I can't thank all of you tape hoppers enough -- hostesses and participants alike -- for making this such a wonderful experience for me, and for being so kind to spread the word about my tape. The Artsyville shop has been buzzing around the clock (and the globe) since the tape arrived three weeks ago, and my wholesale business is growing. I am so very grateful for all the Facebook shares, Tweets, mentions on Instagram, and referrals to friends and local shops. Every bit matters and every share counts. If you have a favorite local paper crafting/art supply/cute shop that I should know about, by all means send me a note at aimee (at) Also --- send me your pictures if you make anything with my tape! We're building a photo gallery for the website and I would love to see the creative things you whip up from it.
