A New Year Welcome to Simple Stories!

Happy New Year to you! 2012 is officially here!

A new year offers a chance to set new goals, wipe the slate clean and start afresh! And while most of us have found resolutions are hard to keep the full year round...we hope visiting the GlueArts blog will be one resolution you will not break!

We're happy to kick off the year with a brand new sponsor to pair up with our talented Glue Girls!

Please join us all week long as we partner up with Simple Stores and their brand new Year.o.graphy collection!

Designers Andrea Budjack and Jan Hennings are starting the week off with a bang! Both have shown how diverse this collection is by creating home decor items and we love Jan's art kit!!

We hope you'll join us all week along with the talented Simple Stories team as we partner together showcasing GlueArts Adhesives and Simple Stories products!!
