Bringing in the New Year!!!

Hello everyone,

Just in case you didn't catch my Facebook Post... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Thank you all for a wonderful year. It was the best yet for Designs by Ryn. I've appreciated all of our correspondences and the lovely art that you've shared with me online. I'm wishing you a year full of positive growth and inspiration for 2014!!!

To start off things off I've discounted three stamps by 50%.

This year I will be continuing the Customer Creation Monthly Draw for a free stamp. To enter the draw send in a photo of anything that you've made using my stamps. The winner is announced on the first day of each month on my blog - today being a slight exception ;) If you don't want me to share your art or name that is absolutely ok. Just let me know. I will still include you in the draw. If you win, I'll send you a free stamp. It's my little way of saying thanks for taking the time to share your creations with me. You really do keep me going :) Many thanks!!!

Last months winner is... Heike Linnek! Her magical take on Water Droplets is below. HERE is a link to her blog.

I've got a lot in the works at the moment for Designs by Ryn. Finally after 3 years I feel like I'm understanding the basics of business (that is, with the painful exception of bookkeeping). I'm now dreaming of expanding in different ways and focusing on the creating aspect a little bit more. It's funny, I started this venture based on my art and have been so busy learning about business that I've hardly had time to create anything.

In response to the beautiful layering that I am seeing from my Design Team I am now researching the possibility of creating Stencils and offering Unmounted Rubber Sheets of my designs. I will keep you posted on what I come up with ;)

That's all from me at the moment. Thanks for stopping by!




  1. Congrats Heike and for all here to come 'Happy New Year'! Hope we can bring you a lot of inspirations this coming year! Miranda

  2. Congratulation, Heike!!!
