ScrapMuse and the new DT

ScrapMuse has found the additions to our Design Team!

First, let me just say that we had such a great response to this call. Each and every one of you who submitted had lovely work and this decision was truly, TRULY difficult. You should all be proud...proud of your memories and moments and of the beautiful ways you have chosen to remember them.

We couldn't pick just 2 ladies for the permanent design team. So we chose 4 and here they are (provided they accept of course!):

Nathalie Kalbach
Rebekah Robinson
Michelle Clement
Bernadette Henderson
Congratulations ladies! And again, thank you ALL who entered.

The Guest Designers for Feb - June are:

Jill Cornell - February 2007
Christiane Muller - March 2007
Elizabeth Carney - April 2007
Kristen Rousch - May 2007
Emeline Seet-ng - June 2007

Well, it's Friday at lunchtime

And I am so glad that it is. I am actually *somewhat* ahead on ScrapMuse kits(one can never truly be ahead when you run your own business but you know what I mean). And my DH actually went to the grocers yesterday so we have food, and more importantly, COFFEE. :)

My New Year's resolution was to commit to putting the cats on a diet...alright, alright...and I'm going to watch what I eat too...mostly cause I feel hypocritical, LOL... They're one helluva lot friendlier now that they depend on ME for their food. Kind of nice, really.

It's another gray day in the Pacific Northwest. My day job is going OK - still trying to find ways to keep myself motivated on projects instead of just putting out fires but I think it's because it's been so long (a year at least) since I actually was in project MODE...I am getting the hang of it though.

My cold is gone, thank goodness, and just in time too - we're taking our neighbor and his wife out to Alameda Brewhouse tonight for his 30th bday. I am looking forward to it b/c we haven't been out with them in awhile and they ALWAYS show us good places for beer in Portland.

Mina is doing fine - my other New Year's resolution was to take her on at least ONE walk a day on the days she doesn't go to doggie day care (I can hear my sister laughing). So far I am upholding this resolution OK. It's important to me b/c buying ScrapMuse has really cut down on the time I spend with her and I want to do at least one thing with her each day.

So that is that. The house plans are moving along nicely too. I am so glad we decided to close at the end of January - with all that's going on, rushing it like every realtor and builder wants you to do, would have just driven me bonkers.

Have a super weekend ya'll!
