That's My Name, Right There on the American Crafts Blog!!!

So it's been 2 - 3 days now since I got the email and I still have butterflies just thinking about this announcement.  I know it sounds ridiculous but I am just THAT excited! If you follow my blog, you probably saw that I was a guest designer for American Crafts earlier this month. Did you see the projects I created?  It was such an honor and I was so excited to see my name and photo on their blog that I took a screen shot of it. I had no idea at the time what I would use it for.

Well, I know why now. I just knew it'd be a long shot but I applied for their design team. I figured they might say no (they get hundreds of applications and only accept 20) but they might say yes! I stalked my email every day, multiple times a day until low and behold my heart skipped a beat.  Could it be? Have you figured out yet that I am walking you through all the emotions I went through? I read it and then I read it again and then I quickly replied with a YES! along with a few other descriptive words, before they could change their mind and then I read it again. I couldn't believe it! Someone wake me up! I've been asked to join the 2012 - 2013...
I am joining the team with some of the most amazingly talented ladies, many of whom I've admired for so long and several of whom I've had the chance to design with!
