Freebie Friday – Stamp & Scrapbook Expo’s Creativity Center

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

When I attended my first Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, one of the many things I was impressed with was the Creativity Center. In the center of the show floor, I saw a group of very happy crafters. My curiosity piqued, I headed over and discovered that they had gathered around Lorraine Ungeheier at the Creativity Center. Lorraine is a very talented crafter who has been creating lovely projects for over 20 years. Lorraine helps her guests make FREE Make & Take projects and she is truly amazing! All you need to do is pull up a chair and soon you will be creating with a new best friend!
