Exciting News!

I have hinted to a couple of you about something fun that I was about to get into, but didn't want to "jinx" myself by letting the cat out of the bag too soon!! So now that it's official, I can finally share--and boy was it hard keeping it a secret!

I am going to be doing some design work for Michael's! I am now a Professional Crafter! It's contract work, so I will be able to do much of it from home, but sometimes I will go into the "office" (their corporate headquarters is only about 45 minutes from my house) and work in this big craft room with a few other girls. It literally looks like Michael's exploded in there!! My first "assignment" is to work on some digital scrapbooking to see if they want to buy this line of tools, and books from their supplier. How cool is that? Then next week, ProvoCraft will be in to demo the new Cricut Expression (uses 12x12 paper) and I get to go to that!! I am super excited (as if you couldn't tell)!!!

Another exciting thing going on--I am "trying out" to be on the smARTworks design team and yesterday, I found out I made it to the second round!! WoOHoOOO!!! Check out their fun stuff here! They really have some pretty stamps. Next, she will send me some stamps to use and I have to "create" with them and submit my work for the next round!! Very exciting, as it will be the first design team I've made (if I make it)!!

Anyway, thanks for listening and letting me gush!!!!!
