I'm So Excited....

I'm So excited... and I just can't hide it! (does this make anyone else want to run and put on their leg warmers?) I can't believe the day is finally here! Last summer, I submitted some card samples to Gina K to be considered for a Guest Designer position on her site. Months later, my phone rang and I just about peed my pants when Gina K HERSELF was on the other line! And she said YES! (or something like that!)

To be honest, it was a really crazy day. I was SO excited because I had the house to myself for the first time in ages and I had planned on spending the day stamping away. Right as I sat down at my desk to start creating, I saw something from the corner of my eye. A mouse had just darted from one side of my craft room to another! I ran out of there as fast as I could and called my brother to come rescue me (the only person I could think of that wasn't at work that day).

Now... I have a TERRIBLE fear of mice. We live in an old farm house surrounded by fields... but I hadn't seen one of those terrible critters for a long time. I was shaking and trying to figure out what to do. That's when my phone rang. And I THOUGHT it was my brother calling me back. Um... no. The sweet voice on the other end of the phone was The Gina K.

I really have no idea what I said to her on the phone that day. All I really knew was that several months later, I would get to be one of her Guest Designers.

So.... without further ado....
check out my first day with Gina K! :)

  6. Congratulations, Julie! Of course, I know you're so intimidated by the HUGE shoes you had to fill from last month's Featured Stamper... ha!

I've spent the last several minutes looking at this first page on your blog -- I don't know what's happened, but somehow you aren't on my Google reader?! For shame! There's waaaay too much good stuff going on here for me to be missing it, so I'm going to fix that straight away! Big hugs!!!

  13. OH Mice - scare the crap out of me - I had one in my car this winter eating my air filter several times - caught him in a trap in my car. I am still driving around with the sticky traps in my car. Your project over on Gina K - is spectacular.


  14. Julie,
    I came by your site after seeing all of your wonderful projects on Gina's site...I loved visiting your blog and seeing your great ideas! The peeps box is adorable! and I love the cleaning basket idea too!!!

    Be blessed!
