Jen Cuthbertson

Hello! I'm Jennifer Cuthbertson (my friends call me Jen) and I live in San Francisco with my husband Glen and our cat Yoda.  I've always been a creative person and discovered a love for stamps and ink in 2009.  I started my blog, I'm Crafty that spring and haven't looked back since.  

Between my full-time job in information security and my stamping time, you will find me playing video games, going to Giants games, shopping, and traveling the wonderful world we live in.  

I'm super excited to be a part of the Play Date Cafe Design Team!  I can't believe the fun adventures this amazing hobby has taken me on and I hope you'll continue to join me!


We believe that The Play Date Cafe offers a style
for everyone, so we hope you continue to show
your support, play along & spread the word.
We have so many amazing sponsors and events planned
for you.  You won't want to miss a week!!

This week's suggested colors are:

Pink Carnation
Orange Sherbet
Lemonade


We are happy to have this week's sponsor back with us
