Quixotic Paperie Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Quixotic Paperie online store Anniversary Blog hop.


We are celebrating one year of Quixotic Paperie and do hope that you will join us. There will be lots of gorgeous makes to look at and of course some yummy prizes!


So if you have arrived at my blog from Quixtotic Inspirations (the Quixotic Paperie store blog) then you are on the right track! If not then really you will want to go to Quixotic Inspirations first to start a hopping 🙂

Quixotic Paperie was started on June 1st 2009 by Elaine Hughes. Having been an avid crafter (and craft shopper!) for a number of years, Elaine wanted to share her passion and see where it might take her – so, Quixotic Paperie was born! Since then, the store has grown, and now stocks a fabulous range of rubber stamps from around the world: The Greeting Farm, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, SCACD Stamps, Paper Makeup Stamps, Belles ‘n Whistles, the Mo Manning for Stamping Bella range, Stempelglede and more! In addition, the store carries a large range of charms and embellishments, and a host of gorgeous papers for all your crafty projects! If Elaine loves it, you will probably find it at Quixotic Paperie!

In November 2009 the Quixotic Challenges blog was started, where you can find weekly inspiration from the wonderful Quixotic Paperie Design Team, and join in for the chance to win a monthly prize.

I have totally loved working on Elaine’s DT over the last year, she is one of the nicest people you can blog-meet and I’ve learnt so much working with her and the other wonderfully talented crafters she has in her DT (I think she had her eye’s shut when she picked me to come along on the ride LOL!) they are an amazing bunch of girls!

Happy Crafty Birthday Quixotic Paperie, may there be many more to come!

Right, your next port of call is the amazing Judy Laing from Judy’s Crafty Moments.
