Our Little Family is Growing

Our happy little family here at Claudia and Company Stamps has grown! We have a wonderful new artist that has joined our expectational artistic crew.
Introducing... Jane Beljo! Jane is no stranger to the digital design world. She has an active Etsy shop (wait until you see the buttons she makes), her own digital design shop, Jane's Doodles and is currently illustrating for Squigglefly, Unity Stamps and now Claudia and Company Stamps!
Not only does she have an impressive resume, her background is pretty impressive too. Just see what she has to say about herself...
"I was born in Germany family moved to Canada when I was 9 months old. I have always...and I mean ALWAYS been creative...after high school I came to Zagreb, Croatia on my own (my parents are Croatian) and studied at the University of Philosophy...before that I did a year (as a guest student) at the University of Fine Arts...met my husband (who also came from Canada to Croatia)...married with 3 kids (8, 5.5 and 3). My last job (before I started having my babies ;)...) I was teaching English from Kindergarten and grades 1 through 6. I have been told by many that I'm a natural born teacher....I prefer playing with paper and doodling!"

Here is a little footnote she added that I find so cute...I'm sure any and all of our followers can relate to this statement when it comes to crafting:
"If I were to describe myself, I would say that I'm very friendly, generous, loyal and panicky!!! ;) and a perfectionist."
Now, I don't know about you but that panicky perfectionist sure does sound familiar...heehee.
You can find Jane at her blog Plain Jane. However, I have to say I don't think there is anything "plain" about our new little gem. She's going to fit right in with our other Claudia and Company treasures.
Jane, thank you so much for joining our team and creating this adorable new design.

Meet Halloween Bosko!
Isn't he just the absolute cutest?
He is now available for purchase as a digi at Die Cuts R Us.
If you think he looks cute there, just wait to see what our stupendous designers did with him...









Wowzers! Those were just out of this world! Thanks ladies for such a fantastic introduction of this cutie-patootie. You've done us proud!
Would you like a chance to win a Halloween Bosko digi stamp of your own? All you have to do is leave a comment here and you'll be entered into the drawing. You have until Sunday, the 19th; we will announce the winner on Monday.
We couldn't let you leave (for now) without a parting gift... a little something from Jane herself! She drew this cute little pumpkin, and is offering it as a giveaway to all our wonderful blog friends! Yay! Just click on the pumpkin, then right click, and save to your desktop!

Now, don't forget to give a great big Claudia and Co. Stamps welcome to our talent by leaving her a little blog love here. Or, stop over to Plain Jane and share the love there too. Or, do both...we are one big happy - huggy - lovey - dovey group of crafters the more blog love ...the BETTER!
