Whew! Don't we all love Red Lead. Merry Christmas everyone. Good luck to each of us.


I am so glad you are doing this blog. I had surgery and have not been able to come in and get my Red Lead "fix". This gives me a chance to see the beautiful items without having to be there.

Thank You!
I look forward to getting to see them in person soon!

A box full of goodies from your store would be amazing -- what to play with first. It's kind of like when coming home from the store which I don't get to visit very often bc of the drive. What to use first. You have a great store!!


Love your blog, your store and the constant inspiration I receive. Thank you for sharing a holiday gift chance with your readers but thank you for sharing your creative joy all year round. Happy holidays!

Used to be a steady customer and participant. Glad to find your website and will track down your new store. Sharing inspiration is a true gift you give. Everything looks great. Stampers need to support specialty stores such as Red Lead or they will all be gone. Wishing you much success.
