Finally! I can share the news that I have been holding in for what seems like FOREVER now. Not only did I get asked to come back to Label Tulip for another term, but Cindee and Cathy asked me to be the DT Coordinator! Eek! I'm so excited, and incredibly honored to have been asked. Be sure to tune in to Label Tulip because I have a lot of exciting plans for the next 6 months. I can't wait to get started working with this fabulous new team...
To add to that good news, my mom called me the other day to say that she thought I had made the cover of the new Handmade (formerly Paper Trends) magazine. She wasn't sure, but the mock-up cover that she saw on her renewal notice was one of my pieces. Sure enough, I got an e-mail later the next day from Tammy Morrill at Handmade saying that I had, indeed, made the cover...
Yeehaw! I haven't submitted anything to a magazine in ages, and I certainly had never had anything featured on the cover. Ever. So, I was overwhelmingly excited to have this happen. I can't wait to get my copy of the magazine, and thumb through all of the handmade goodness!
And, last, but not least, my little Halloween banner from a few posts ago was featured on the most recent newsletter from 2Peas! Take a look back at Friday's newsletter if you're interested. To be honest, I had deleted it without even reading the newsletter. I'm desperately trying to save money, and any sort of a scrap budget was the first thing to go. So, I figured if I don't look at all the new product coming out, I won't be tempted. I had to go back, and pull the newsletter from my trash just so I could take a peek. LOL!
I've been a busy little bee this weekend. So far...
*We got some of the inside and outside Halloween decorations up. I need about 5 packages of spider webs and some more orange lights for outside , and some miniature black and orange glass ball ornaments (any ideas where to find some?) for my tiny black Christmas tree inside, and I'll be about done.
*Been researching apple orchards in the area to possibly take the kids to next weekend. We've never done the whole pick-your own apple thing, and I'm just a wee bit excited. Now, if only the closest one wasn't 250 miles away.
*Listed about 13 auctions of old rubber stamps on eBay. I'm hoping to make enough $ off of them to plan a proper weekend away in the mountains hunting down that apple orchard. We shall see come Thursday.
*Working on finishing up some spooky ATC's for a swap at SIS. Must. get. them. done. I have to mail them by the 4th, but I'm aiming for the 1st.
*I'm almost done with the new blog header, and a few more gadgets for the sidebars. I'm really hoping to have it up by tomorrow night, so be sure to check back. Until then, happy weekend!
