Good morning to all the Craftymonkeys out there, I just wanted to tell you some news about a good friend of mine and I know for most of you that the wonderfully talented Karen O'Brien will need no introducing, but for those of you that have never visited her personal blog or seen her work, then I would highly recommend a visit to Karens blog 'My Crafty Cupboard' and her new venture 'Cute Cottage Crafts'. Karen is teaming up with her sister Sarah 'The Happy Crafter' to bring us some luxury crafting therapy and is not only going to share her fantastic creative skills with you, but is offering lots of launch candy and ideas too in the coming weeks.
