Neat & Tangled Maze Die Set
This die! OMGosh, as soon as I saw the first peeks of it I knew I had to have it. It is designed to be interactive by sliding the heart through the maze, but it certainly wouldn’t have to be used in only that way. I can’t wait to play with it!

Distress Oxides (Set 3)
Yay, the 3rd set of colors has released in Distress Oxide inks. Two of my favorites this go around are Squeezed Lemonade and Blueprint Sketch. They are bright, vibrant, and delicious! They are a hot, hot item with their blending capabilities and oxide properties.

Neat & Tangled is owned by the darling Danielle. They are based on the East Coast in Delaware. Their style is sometimes bold and graphic and others whimsical and cute. They are a company that has something for everyone! Their hand lettering elements are in a class of their own. Recently they created a die that can be an interactive maze, which blew me away. I purchased it right away. I have yet to play with it, but it is on my list! Find them here.
