Welcome to my new home!

After three years and exactly one day I’m celebrating the 150 000 visitors that has made their way to my little corner of the world. It’s absolutely insane and I’m very surprised and thankful for the attention. I’m closing the old Kottens Corner blog and have moved in at jenny.grotherus.com instead. I hope you will continue to visit me and like it here.

No party without presents, so I’m having a HUGE giveaway for you. Actually the biggest one I’ve ever had. How about winning ALL FOUR amazing Vintage Basics collections by Maja Design? All in all, 108 double-sided patterned papers! MSRP 2 USD each! Yes, these collections are enormous and they are waiting for your greedy hands. Just take a look at these beauties…

All you have to do is leave a comment on this posting and start following this blog plus Maja Design. I will draw one lucky winner March 1st.

I have had so much fun with these collections and created so many projects with them. Here comes a few of them as inspiration…

    Wow, what an awesome prize. And I really don’t have to do anything, I already follow you and am happy to continue on your new blog. It looks amazing, Maja Papers are my absolute favourite. Sometimes I don’t even want to cut them, but then I think, don’t be silly, no point having them if you don’t use them ;D. So I have made quite a few projects with them. My fav collection is the Autumn basics. Winning this prize would be just a dream come true. Thanks for the opportunity to enter and for sharing you gorgeous projects.

    I have been and always will be a big, no (correction) huge fan of Maja Design papers: every design is amazingly wonderful and easily compatible with the other ones, especially the Vintage Basics collections Who wouldn’t want to win such a gorgeous pile of sturdy, double-sided papers? This giveaway is so huge, I would split it with my friends should I be the lucky winner.
    Your moving your little corner of the world has been a great step forward, I just love this new design and of course became a follower. (could not find you earlier, because the world has many little corners to hide, LOL).
    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win, Jenny and keep up the good work, your projects are so inspiring!
