As I sit here reflecting back on the past 9 years the one word that keeps popping into my head is GRATEFUL. I can honestly say the past 9 years have been full of sweat (someone has to carry all the heavy boxes into the YNS office), blood (poking my finger with a die or nipping my myself while cutting with those super pointy scissors), tears (joy when I read your sweet comments and emails and pain when something just didn’t go as planned) and so much FUN and laughter…so much FUN and laughter! I had to repeat that one! *grin* I’m surrounded by so many wonderful people who support me everyday on this incredible journey and appreciate all of you very much!

Hello!!!  My name is Katie Brooks and I am THRILLED to be here guesting for YNS!!!  A little about me… I have a loving husband and a darling 10 year old daughter.  I work an HR job and manage my MS. Crafting is my escape from the real world. I have had a love for arts/crafts all of my life, something passed to me by my parents.  It is fun to find and share inspiration and crafty friends, especially with stamps as fun as these!

I love Your Next Stamp stamps, so I am delighted to be here as a guest for the month of August. I live in Southwestern Ontario and have been a card maker for over 13 years. I love this industry and the wonderful people one meets, and I think I can say I am addicted. I very much enjoy colouring images, my favourite medium being watercolour. I started taking watercolour classes in 2016, and continue with the weekly classes. Thank you Your Next Stamp for having me for the month of August. YNS Supplies:  Life’s a Hoot


Kia and Katie will both be back for our August new release celebration starting on August 11th.   Get ready for the birthday party!  No need to bring a gift, we will be the ones giving out gifts!
