The Last Scrappy Hour

Well, last night marked the last ever Scrapbook Fever In-Store Scrappy Hour. We were about thirty people strong! I was good to see employees, former design team members and loyal customers having fun scrapping. It was a sad occassion though. the store was nearly stripped bare. Hard to see it that way. It was good to hear that the blog will keep going & former employees are still going to host monthly crops downtown Round Rock! The first one is coming up September 13th! Check back for more details!

Telephonic Bind It All Tutorial!

Okay, I have this great friend, Frankie, who had a birthday on the 23rd. Myself and some friends went together and bought her a Bind It All for her special day. Well, she lives clear across the USA. She calls me yesterday, gripping, because she can't figure out how to punch more than six holes with her BIA & get them to line up. So, I walked her through it. Lo and behold, she made her first mini album while on the phone with me!!! Congrats Frankie! First time I've ever done a telephonic BIA tutorial!!

Bind It All Book Contest Finalist

Wow! I'm sooooooo excited. I've had the Bind It All (BIA) and Dreamkuts since they came out. I love creating with them. When I saw their book contest, I just had to enter. Well I sent in six projects. I found out on the 11th that FIVE of the six were selected as finalists. I'm sooooooo excited!! I thought maybe, one project becasue there are so many talented people out there. I never expected five. I'm working on my next step in the contest process. Wish me luck!!

I've had ten or fifteen things published, but to be published by the manufacturer of your favorite tools is just to die for!!!

And.....then the ladies on MMFY where I'm a DT member and I spend all my spare time, told me about the BIA first ever DT Call. Wow. Now something else to work on. That would be the ultimate dream for me, get published by Zutter and be a Zutter Zister!!!!!!!!
