guesting at Ella today

I'm guest-blogger at Ella Publishing today. I shared some secrets behind Studio Calico, mainly how the kits are designed and their inspiration sources. Hopefully you're intrigued and will visit....I did my best to arouse suspense here :)

If you've never visited Ella before, now's your chance! They offer online magazines and books that are high-quality. Many are 100% free, which is wonderful so you can see the quality first-hand before purchasing an eBook.

But, before you do, I have a giveaway for you. Just leave a comment stating which eBook you would like to win and why






I'll leave this open through Saturday, so you have plenty of time to check them out. 1 winner for each book will be drawn on Sunday, so don't forget to check back and see if you won.
