Announcing our DT!

Hello my lovely and beautiful blogosphere buddies! Only 9 days until the shop goes live and you're able to order our first kits! Are you as excited as I am?! I'm hoping to have the shop go live earlier than June 1, but I got distracted by the nine gigantic boxes of scrappy deliciousness that got delivered to my door that I just couldn't pull myself away to work on the web! You'll all know as soon as the store is open, either way!
I have some great news to announce! After an agonizing time pouring through the nearly 50 DT apps I received - which was truly, one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make! - I made my choices and am so excited to welcome Kim, Rae and Sarabeth to my team! You're going to love these girls!! Not only are they wonderfully creative, but they are so fun and sweet and spunky. These next four months are going to be a ball!
Join me in welcoming our very first Design Team for Lucky Girl Crafts!!!

- She has a large family all living within 45 minutes of her
- She still has her Granny with her, who is 84 years old! Love you Gran!!!

-She has some wonderful friends and co-workers who are always there for her
-She is lucky to have three of her children serve in the Military. Did you know that only 1% of the American population serve their country in the Military? Her children are going to benefit greatly from the experience.

-She is blessed with a gift to teach special needs children and still holds a special relationship with her first student and his family. She was proud to have him as a ring bearer in her wedding four years ago and will soon be attending his fifth grade graduation.

and finally, of course, me!
5 Reasons why I am a Lucky Girl!

- I have two amazing kiddos that tell me they love me every day
- My husband is not only my best friend, but my biggest fan! I don't know what I did to deserve his unerring support, but I am thankful every day!
- The views don't get any prettier than they are from my bedroom deck - we are surrounded Colorado blue skies and the majestic Rocky Mountains.
- We are blessed to be able to raise our children around the same small community where my husband grew up, and just a few hours from my home town.
-We have a very large and eclectic family and we love getting together for family events.

Just checking in... only a few more days to enter the DT call!

Hi friends -

First, I want to thank all of you who have applied to the DT so far. Man, do I have some tough choices to make!!! If only I could have you all! And, if you haven't applied yet, know that you only have through this Friday to send me your entry. Check out all the details in the DT call posting below...

I hosted a Mother's Day retreat for some of my closest friends and have been gone all weekend long, so if I haven't had a chance to reply personally to your entries or questions, I apologize. I will by tomorrow afternoon. I'm so exhausted now, between cropping & Mother's Day festivities, that I'm in my jammies and going to curl up in bed with one of the Sookie Stackhouse novels.

Speaking of the retreat, I'm getting some awesome feedback from my girls locally on what they want to see - particularly some boy and masculine-focused products. What about you? What kind of products, color schemes, themes, etc. are you on the lookout for? I'll do my best to meet your needs!

Seriously - comment here & let me know what you want to see....

Finally, for all you mothers out there, I hope you have had a fantastic Mother's Day!!!

Scrap Happy -
