I am so excited to be able to spill the beans today about something something I’ve been dying to tell y’all about for months!
Jo-Ann (my creative home away from home) is featuring me as their Creative Influencer of the Month for August!
As I look at the list of the previous creative influencers for 2013, I am completely star-struck: Tim Holtz, Vickie Howell, and Tori Spelling, just to name a few. It is a dream come true to be included in the company of these creative gurus!
To celebrate being this month’s creative influencer, I have created a free pattern exclusively available at Jo-Ann.com for how to create a fun and functional study pillow for all of the bookworms in your life, just in time for back-to-school season! This pattern would be perfect for children of all ages, or even for kids heading off to college, as the pillow is firm enough to use to prop up even the heaviest of textbooks, and it includes tons of storage for notebooks, pens, calculators and more.

Curious to see how I would respond to anyone who tells me they aren’t creative? Find the answer to that question and more in my Q&A on the Jo-Ann blog, where you can also access the interviews with the previous creative influencers.
Wanting to see which PS projects make my list of all-time favorites? All month long, I’ll be pinning many of the very best PS projects on the Create with Amy Bell Jo-Ann Pinterest board, so be sure to follow along!
When I embarked on this Positively Splendid journey three years ago, I never dreamed any of this could be possible. Thank you so much to Jo-Ann for this honor, and to all of YOU for reading. I am so thankful for each and every one of my readers, and to be working along with amazing companies like Jo-Ann who share my passion for helping everyone realize their creative potential!
