Some exciting news!

I've been keeping a secret...
for a while now...
I couldn't talk about it or blog about it...
but now.... I don't have to keep it a secret any longer!

I've been asked to be a member of the
Say It With Letters
design team....
excuse me just a moment...


YIPEE SKIPEE!


I just need to catch my breath!
I have loved using Say It With Letters shapes and letters for years,
and have featured some of the things I've made right here on my blog.



(Can you tell that I really love the birdhouse theme?)

In 2009, Deb Damboise (the owner and all 'round sweetie of SIWL)
 asked if I would do one project as a guest designer.
I was so nervous about which shape or letters she would send...
when the package came I was delighted to see that it was a fun, fat pumpkin.
This is what I came up with...

On one side was a vintage-y looking pumpkin and on the back side....

a whimsical, funny guy...with braces! (I do work for an orthodontist in real life)
I wrote a tutorial about this project here.

So now I'm waiting for my first assignment...
nervous again but so excited to be a part of this amazing team
of talented women.
Please take time to visit the Say it With Letters blog here...
and the Etsy Store...
You will be inspired!

xoxo
Joyce
Note: I am posting this while on vacation...oh the beauty of being able to create these posts ahead. I will be back next week!

This was absolutely meant to be Joyce! You have the most perfect style of paper crafting of anyone I know. It is so precise and clean looking. Elegant, completely! I am so happy for you! PS You will not believe this, but the cute Yippie Skippy image is actually my sister-in-law Mary Jo! We have no idea how it has made it's rounds, but we laugh every time we see it. Her personality is EXACTLY like this image. Elizabeth

Joyce - I was never as excited when I saw your name on the list of new designers! I had no idea and I'm so happy that we will be working together. Thank you for calling me your "idol"! Ha. No one has ever called me that before and you really made me smile today!
You will grace the team with your work and your friendliness! :) Hooray for you!
