Welcome Our January Guest Designer

Good morning Friends and Happy New Years Eve!

We hope that you have all enjoyed your Christmas time off and look forward to ringing in the New Year with family and friends.  As we say goodbye to 2012 I would like to take this time to say Thank you to our wonderful Guest Designer Melissa Oeters for making December a month to remember.  Mahalo Melissa, your creations were all super creative and inspiring.  I really appreciate you stepping in for us in December and honey you rocked it!!  Thank you again!!

The DT will still be taking time off in January but will be back in February refreshed and ready to bring you more Yumi and Fumi inspirations.  To help us with January I asked someone who I have admired for quite some time, since my TGF days actually.  I was really excited that she said yes and am really glad she's helping us with January.  We are very excited to welcome our January Guest Designer, Denice Bartucci

Here is a little bit more about Denice in her own words:

"I'm a midwestern gal who finds a lot of the inspiration for my projects come from my family, which consists of "Papa Bear" and our 4 fab kiddos....they are my never-ending source of support and my biggest/bestest critics.  I've been stamping and scrapbooking for almost 15 years and am passionate about both crafts. I could talk endlessly about all the latest embellies and techniques, and find the internet to be an endless source of new projects to try. I'm looking forward to spending a fun and creative month with Y&FH!"
I asked Denice to take our survey and her answers were pretty unique.  Needless to say, I think she fits right in with the rest of us. {hehe}
