"At the two-yard peg she faced round, and said, 'A pawn goes two squares in its first move, you know.
So you'll go VERY quickly through the Third Square--by railway, I should think--and you'll find
yourself in the Fourth Square in no time. Well, THAT square belongs to Tweedledum and
Tweedledee--the Fifth is mostly water--the Sixth belongs to Humpty Dumpty--But you make no

Design Team Changes
Sue Roddis and Sandy Scholz are stepping down from the design team. I am so thankful for all the time they have dedicated to creating inspiring Alice projects. In particular Sue was instrumental in helping me get The Altered Alice started. We wish them all the best as they follow their muses in other directions!
Our guest designer, Amy Bowerman Stucki of Plucking Daisies, has accepted a position on the permanent design team! She has been a wonderful fit right from the beginning and I am thrilled that she will be staying on to share her talent with us! Welcome Amy!
Your Weekly Inspiration
Stempelchaotin leaves us with a wonderful set of ATCs. I don't know how she created these, but I wonderful if they have layers of glass? There is a wonderful sense of depth; the flowers appear to be floating above the background. I love the turquoise, yellow and orange color scheme, and the shimmering polka dots at the top add a festive air! The caption is perfectly ironic, love it!
Stempelchaotin to leave a comment and farewell wishes for Sandy.
Amy Bowerman Stucki of Plucking Daisies created a wonderful keychain full of handmade Alice charms! She had some leftovers from last week's project, so she covered the images stamped on textured cardstock with Glossy Accents.
Others were stamped on what might be clear Fragment or metal charms, colored with alcohol inks.
The backs are just as interesting, as Amy has covered them with tooled metal! This is a key chain any Alice fan would be proud to carry; I think I would want to hook it onto a purse strap where I could see it all the time. Great project! Be sure to stop by Plucking Daisies and leave a comment welcoming Amy to the design team!
So show us your stripes by entering on or before Jan. 27 to have a chance at the wonderful prize!
