Home Stretch

Lately I have been quite the hermit. I stay in all day, sitting on my couch, creating goods for Glitz. What is Glitz? Glitz is a scrapbook company founded by Ginger John, Laura Funk and Erin DeSpain. And I design most of their products*. Season 2 is almost finished, and I am in the home stretch. Finn is seeing days at the Zoo with mom ahead. The laundry is doing a dance of joy. And the dishes are getting ready for a nice, hot bubble bath. And I think Wes will be much happier with me after I am out of the thick of it. Hmmm...I just might get to bed before 1 am every night! BUT I can't complain too much, because the process is terribly creative. I learn new Photoshop and Illustrator techniques daily. I get to be a digital Illustrator—something I minored in in grad school. And the end result makes lots of scrapbookers very happy and hopefully inspired. So check out Ginger's blog here, to see some of the products that we are coming out with for Season 2. (Click on the images on her blog to see close-ups of all the paper.)

*Although I am currently designing the majority of the printed and digital products, we are hoping to find me some help! So if you, or someone you know, would like to design scrapbooking products, e-mail me at lyndsaywjohnson@yahoo.com. This designer needs to be creative, proficient in Photoshop and Illustrator (or the equivalent), and not afraid of fancy flourishes and doodles. So you'll have to get your "align to baseline" fix elsewhere. :)

I love your stuff! I wonder if you could find some digital scrapbook designer and talk her into designing for Glitz to help you out? Post a casting call on the Glitz blog!
