  1. I can’t pick a favorite! I look forward to reading the blog each week when it appears in my mailbox. Lovely sneeks! Looks like I’m adding to my wishlist … again! Congrats, Maria!


  2. I can not pick a favorite post as I love to read all of them and see what you and your talented designers have created. The sneak peaks really are wonderful and once I see them I can hardly wait to see the complete sets.
    A very happy anniversary to you. I feel your stamps are the most classy on the web.


  3. I haven’t been checking this out for very long but I really love the steps to make everything so detailed. Everything looks so realistic. Thanks for sharing everything! Congratulations on your anniversary!


  4. I like the feature Project of the Month because I am always looking for ways to use my stamps for gift items. I especially liked the bracelet from Jan 08, the soap from Oct 08 and the clear box from Sept 09. I also liked the Yummy Monday post from 7/27/09 showing a cute jam label. Of course I keep coming back for all the wonderful card ideas too!


  5. My favorite post has to be when you gave us sneak info of the Hibiscus! My all-time favorite flower. I got so excited – I could hardly wait to order it, and could hardly wait for my real, live, dinner-plate size hibiscus to start blooming! Love those hibiscus!


  6. My favorite post has to be the one………..oh yeah it took forever for me to get signed up. I kept messing up, so I haven’t seen to many. Oh well, live and learn. I love the whole thing!! It is so exciting to see KSS in my inbox. Happy 2nd birthday. You deserve all this and a whole lot more. Your stamps are so beautiful. Hugs, T


  7. Hi Maria: Happy two year anniversary! Seems like only yesterday that I got my first KSS set. The roses! Now I have almost all of the sets and love them all. Sounds like I will need a few more sets soon. My favorite thing about your blog is when you post the color recipies. That is a huge help to me. I also love seeing your smiling face at the top of the blog post! Here’s hoping you continue to blog and create for many years to come!


  8. Congrats KSS on your 2nd Anniversary! My favorite post was learning about the GA class, and knowing I was going to be able to play with the big kids! I learned so much and am so much more confident in my KSS stamping now. Can’t wait to see what’s next on my list. Much luck Maria, hugzzzz


  9. I always enjoy reading your blog for all the wonderful coloring recipes and tips for these stamps. I don’t recall a specific post that would be my favorite, but I suppose any post with your gorgeous flowers would be on that list! Congratulations on your second anniversary.


  10. Happy Anniversary! I can’t pick a favorite either. I just love seeing the way you use your stamp sets. You do such a beautiful job of coloring and combining. Your Hummingbird tin is gorgeous. I would love to win the set.


  11. I love the excitement of the sneek peeks of new sets. I love your 3-step stamp sets. And I love the samples that you post for ideas. I love everything about you! I have been looking for a long time for a good realistic orchid flower. You filled my wishes for the pansy. Hope you do the same for an orchid.
