Welcome to my blog. My name is Paulette Akagi. I love to play with rubber stamps and inks and all paper and mixed-media arts and crafts. My rubber stamp addiction dates back to the mid 1980's. I am a member of the Stamp N Plus Design Team. You can view my work in my gallery by clicking on the link: Splitcoaststampers. I have been published in The Rubberstamper, Vamp Stamp News and Stamping Arts and Crafts. I am starting a blog to showcase my work and to acquaint visitors to my blog with the artwork I design for greeting cards, swaps on Splitcoaststampers and to give blog follwers the opportunity to participate in Stamp N Plus challenges and blog hops.
