Welcoming our newest DT members!!!

Hi, everyone! Please forgive me if this is kept short. I opened the brick & mortar shop yesterday which was wonderful after weeks and weeks of planning, buying, moving, organizing, lots and LOTS of reorganizing and buying some more! It's definitely going to be a change of pace and an adjustment, but one I'm looking forward to. The best part will be getting to have that personal connection and getting to meet some of my online friends in real life. Jen Rzasa from Altenew came up yesterday which was a lot of fun. Jen and I have met before and it's always so great to see her and her adorable self. An IG friend was visiting the shop and did a live Periscope. I am too self-conscious to be on video, but I jumped in for 2 seconds to hug her. I just screen shot a pic like a total creeper. bwhahahahaha Can you tell I love her? *squeezeeeee* hehe

I took the day "off"(ish) today to spend time with my family and go grocery shopping to feed said family. HAHA We ended the weekend with watching a movie in our new camper. They're all asleep now so I caught up on ordering some new releases for the shop and here I am writing this post before I head to bed myself. {Insert pic of me yawning here.}

Let me first introduce Heather King. Her layout submissions were GORGEOUS and I haven't had a scrapbooker join the team in a while so I'm really hoping she'll inspire you. Heather has never been on any Design Teams before and you know I love adding fresh faces to my team!

Mona Toth is joining us all the way from Slovakia!!! Mona is a photographer and her cards along with her photography are fantastic!!! This unicorn filled claw machine won me over. 

Amy Copeland is finally joining the team! I say finally because she has applied for the team several times and I thought it was about time. I'm sure she'd agree? ;)

Funny story about this next member! LOL After I went through and picked the new team , I was scrolling IG, came across some gorgeous creation and thought "man, I wish she'd apply for my team some day'. I clicked on her handle to see her real name and BAM, she had applied... and I had picked her!!! bwahahahahahaha Please welcome Lindsay Lajola!!!

Lastly, we have Kelli Cool joining us. I love what Kelli's been creating with the new Hello Bluebird stamps! Kelli's been a Guest Designer for Ranger and is also on the Craftin' Desert Divas Digi team. They have some really adorable stamps also. If you haven't checked them out, you can find them in the shop HERE

Told you I'd be short & sweet this time!!! ;) So glad to have each of the new members joining us. I can't wait to see what they create next. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
