Cocoa Daisy October Sneak Peeks: "Farmer's Market"

October brings on crisp days and chilly nights, changing of leaves, the smell of baked apples, picking pumpkins from the patch, and strolling down the Farmer’s Market finding fresh produce and homemade goods. Our October kit, Farmer’s Market, is filled with all those beautiful reminders of why so many people love this season. Lush warm tones with pops of unexpected colors, fun embellishments, and our exclusive Cocoa Daisy stamp, this kit is sure to please. So many great manufactures including Jillibean Soup, American Crafts, Crate Paper, Maya Road, and Little Yellow Bicycle just to name a few. We know you love the stamps so much, we have included some exclusive sets to the beautiful add-ons.

Here's a peek at "Farmer's Market"

And a couple of the add-ons:

"Canned Peaches"

"Pumpkin Soup"

"Apple Pie"

Join us on September 28th, 4pm Eastern for the full reveal plus chats, prizes, and games. We hope to see you there!

WOW! What a year!

Just a little note on my 1 year anniversary.

I want to start out by saying a big THANK YOU to everyone on my design team for all the help and support they have given me over the last year, I absolutely could not have done it all without them. I also could not have gotten through all the deadlines, the stress and my "to-do" lists without Ronda cheering me on and telling me to "just breathe". There is one person, however, that most of you have never seen or heard of who has made this year possible and that is my Mom. She has listened to my worries, my rants, my happy news and helped me pack every single kit! I started this journey in the middle of a divorce, while moving in with my parents and buying a new home, last summer and fall were some of the hardest times of my life, but my goal was to make sure that you, my subscribers, never had a late kit and aside from a random exception or two I am proud to say we have achieved that goal!

Now that my life has settled into a routine and I know most of the ins and outs of how everything works I am ready to dig in and really make this company reflect me and my vision. This past year has been a fresh start for me and it only seems appropriate that Cocoa Daisy get a fresh start too! So I am very excited to announce our new logo design, which you will see on the boxes, the packing slips, stickers and the website too!

I have a lot of great things planned for this year, make sure you sign up for our newsletter (and pass it on to all your friends) so you don't miss any of the news! I can't wait to share all that I have in store for Cocoa Daisy.

I also want to thank all of YOU, my subscribers. Without you there would be no Cocoa Daisy. Thank you for joining me on this journey and for letting me deliver boxes of scrappy goodness each and every month. Each kit is like a creation to me and I am thrilled that you are enjoying them and being inspired by them.

Best wishes,

Christine Drumheller
