Exciting News to share!

Well its exciting to me anyways, and I hope you will do a little happy dance with me! *wink* I have been holding my breath for a while with such jump up and down for joy news, and finally I can tell you all about it! I have joined Northridge publishing Cricut magazine as part of their design team! { click on the link to meet the rest of this super talented team}
Now I have to tell you when I got that invitation, I did scream......and jump for joy...and then had wonder if it was real! 

I am beyond being shocked that I ever learned to craft my way out of a paper bag!  Hello seriously!  I have middle school art projects that just about squashed any hopes and dreams I ever had about having a creative bone in my body....but life is funny that way and when you really love something, you just keep trying no matter how much your dad laughs at your sad sorry kitty sculpture! {yes it was bad...very very funny...and oh so bad} LOL ......To be in this moment, is just amazing! I can't claim to be an artist, but there is happiness in all that I do!

Thank you for your support, for your friendship, and for the inspiration you provide me, and the future crafty souls out there! Thank you for doing a happy dance with me, and letting me gush in my little moment is the sun!  Much love, and as always happy creating!
