Welcome to the Seasons Givings Blog Hop


Welcome to the Seasons Givings Blog Hop
I am honored to be a part of this and I want to thank you for being a follower of my blog (if you aren't please subscribe) and seeing my projects throughout the year.
I was never going to be a paper crafter as I loved to sew since I was a  young child.  Then Jillian (my daughter and founder of A Jillian Vance Design at age 10) became a card maker and at 11 years old, started designing her own stamps and dies.  So I am so blessed to have a talented daughter who FORCED me into the Stamping world and I am SO glad she did!
Just 3 short years ago, I didn't even know what a blog was! She started her blog, Princes and the Paper and MADE me start mine and even named it for me!  Since then we have gotten pretty good at it! lol!
Her A Jillian Vance Design blog is her design team inspiration blog.
Check out all the blogs on this Seasons Givings hop, they will each be showing lots of inspiration as well as hosting a giveaway.

Just leave a comment AND  YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS to be eligible for the drawing, USA residents only.  I will be choosing on January 6th.  
I would love for you to follow my blog as well as become a fan of A Jillian Vance Design on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube

Please enjoy my projects, they are featuring A Jillian Vance Design's new releases which are in stock and shipping!!!  Click on the photo to go to the original post.

Wow.....You are one wonderful mom of an amazing young lady! That's a terrific story.

That's a lot of following you are asking us to do (and I do not participate in all those social media), but I have jumped through several of the hoops and now am a brand-new follower of yours with BlogLovin (Janis), and brand-new follower of AJVD on Pinterest (Janis), Twitter (Janis@JanisinIdaho), and YouTube (JanisinIdaho). Whew.

I saw your daughters things already..I laughed as I remembered cutting out letters and words from magazines and newspapers because I loved the lettering!!! I think we are born artistic and there is no out growing it..it just gets worse. I ended up publishing CD roms with fonts I created myself..why because I didn't like what I found out there!
Have a great new year!!!
