The BIG Announcement!

Can you believe I have saved and kept this catalog for over 15 years? It is the ONLY rubber stamp catalog I saved throughout the years besides the ones that I had designed! Is that amazing or what?
 Finally the day has come for me to be able to announce my “big secret”
As many of you know, I recently bought a rubber stamp company that has been in business for 20 years. Up until now,
we have not told anyone as we wanted to make sure that everything was in place before either party ‘spilled the beans’!
Now, everything is a “GO” and I will travel to Idaho, next week, to pick up all of the business equipment and, finally,
give Rubbermoon’s owner and creator, Debra Valoff, a big hug!! The company, that I will have the honor of taking under my wing, is
I cannot begin to thank Debra enough for believing in me and entrusting me with her ‘baby’.
I look forward to continuing the tradition of making wonderful, whimsical, imaginative stamps.
I hope that you will continue to join me on my magical, artful journey!
With much love and gratitude to all who have helped make this possible.

P.S. Here also is Debra's statement:

***News Flash***
"Rubbermoon is going on a big adventure! The very talented artist, Kristen Powers, aka Kae Pea, will be the new owner as of August 28, 2012 and she’s coming then to Idaho to pick up all the loot and move Rubbermoon to Missouri. After 20 years it’s time for me to retire and I feel so blessed to have Kristen taking over my baby. She has some exciting things in store for you all down the road so I hope you continue to support her and Rubbermoon in this wonderful whimsical world of stamping.
By September 15 things should be up and running for her. The website will remain the same( )but the email address will be changing.
Rubbermoon’s Facebook page may need to be redirected but we’ll let you know if/when that happens. I'll still be posting samples for Kristen and enjoying your company there.
All of the designs that you have on your Rubbermoon wish list will still be available along with whatever wonderful new designs Kristen and Gretchen bring to us in the future.
I wish I could give each one of you a big hug to thank you for all of the joy you’ve brought me over the years and I hope we can continue our friendship through the world of Rubbermoon."
