  1. Oh my gosh….now I know why Lawn Fawn is my favorite!! What a bubbly and fun person you are Lydia! I love the story of how you got your company name!! I don’t have tons of stamps, but I have the most of the Lawn Fawn collection! I use a LOT of them for my daughter’s lunch notes! She’s 8 and in second grade! One of my favorites is the On The Mend set! So adorable! Oh, and I just made a Father’s Day Card from my daughter with the Love You S’More set!
    I just wanted to thank all of you ladies for these awesome chats! Keep them coming! I love learning about all of you and all the companies. The entire website is the best!

  2. I sooooooo relate to this concept. I am a community college math professor and, as such, I deal constantly with members of the public who are needy and grumpy…everyday. After a particularly traumatic Fall 2015 semester, I discovered art as a way to stay relatively sane. I started with Rebekah R. Jones’ class on Bible art journaling, and now I am doing all sorts of crafty stuff. Thank you all for being here for me.

  3. There are now studies out which show that crafting lowers blood pressure, and stress in general and is a very healthy thing to do. Money wise I sometimes feel guilty about what I spend on scrap booking/card making, but I don’t go to the bar every Friday night (or ever really) which is how some people relieve stress(not that its wrong, if you’re responsible) but if there is no guilt in what that costs, then there should be no guilt in craft spending! plus we get the product of what we make!!!

  4. Hi girls! I just have to say how much I have been enjoying these chats. It’s like getting together with all of you and your guests even though I don’t get to chime in :-). Kelly you are such a bright light! I think I had a smile on my face the whole time I was watching this video. I just bought the fairies set to make some cards for my 3 yr old granddaughter and I’ve got my eye on the mermaid set. Your stamps truly are a reflection of who you are–sweet, joyful and fun. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  5. I really love these Crafty Chats….I’m working my way through and enjoying them all. Thanks for offering these up for us to watch and learn.

  6. Just like everyone in the card making community, I LOVE Lawn Fawn!!! Kelly is so sweet! Thank you for this treat!!!
