Announcing our 2013 Summer Design Team

I am so pleased and proud to announce our newest round of Designers. While everyone on this list is familiar, we *may* have one or two surprises in store for you over the next few weeks. :-)

I am pleased to welcome back:

With sadness we have a few exiting designers that I would like to thank for their time, talent, and inspiration. I grow very attached to my *girls* and it’s always hard to say goodbye. These ladies have amazing things in store for them, either in the stamping world or in the little thing known as life, and I send them each a huge hug and thanks!

Join me in saying goodbye to:

Google Reader Alternatives

If you hadn’t yet heard the news, Google Reader announced it would be shutting its doors on July 1st. The thought of not being able to scroll through your favorite blogs on Google Reader probably sent you into a panic! Worry no more, because each Thursday through the end of June we will offer great alternatives to Google Reader here on the MFT Blog.

Today we will be focusing on Feedly.

Like Google Reader, Feedly gives you a way to organize and read the content of all your favorite sites. It is very user friendly and is available with free software for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Simply download the free software and it will automatically migrate your existing reading list over to Feedly in a matter of minutes.

Please Welcome….

April 1st marks the beginning of an exciting month at My Favorite Things, and to kick it off we are thrilled to announce the addition of a brand new designer to the MFT family, Amy Rohl!

Amy is no stranger to MFT; not only did she serve as our Guest Designer during the month of January, but she has also topped our Favorite Finds list more times than we could count. You won’t have to wait long to see her in action as Amy will be joining us for our April Teasers at the end of this week.  I hope you’ll take a moment to visit Amy on her blog,  Ink About Me, to see what she’s made for this special occasion, and leave her a warm welcome!
