Fascinating Fridays: Virginia Lu!!

Hello Friends!

I am sure most of you know Virginia Lu, if not, you may have heard of her yesterday as she was selected as one of the top 20 contestants for this year’s Gallery Idol contest!! Yay! Well, how cool is it that I got to interview her for this week’s Fascinating Fridays! Right on time, I would say 🙂 Please head over there to see what she has to share with us!

Virginia is our 99th star to be featured at Fascinating Fridays, which means next week will be our 100th feature. That calls for a celebration, so we decided to have a nice big Giveaway!  One lucky person will be chosen from the comments you leave here, at Deepti‘s blog or Noor‘s blog. Come back next week, and leave comments in all three place to increase your chances for winning.

Fascinating Fridays: Melissa McCarthy

I completely forgot to post this earlier!

Last Friday I featured Melissa McCarthy at Fascinating Fridays. If you haven’t visited her blog yet, you have missed out on a lot of fabulous crafting! Well, it is not too late yet, you can visit her blog here.

Mel Stampz was the very first crafty blog I had come upon, and I was so so impressed! I recall thinking “How does she know to use this product and that product to make this thing! :D” That is me who had yet to find out about stamps, ink pads, embossing, die cutting…and the list goes on. If you are curious, this was the post I stumbled upon from a Google search.

I was quite excited when she agreed to do the interview. You can read all about it here. I hope you can stop by!
