Well, maybe I'm back. The hard drive on my computer crashed 3 weeks ago. My computer guy was able to recover *most* of my data and rebuild the computer. I'm still trying to reload all of my essential programs. Unfortunately, I've found a little problem with my computer and I'm not sure if it is a major issue or not. I'll be contacting my guy again, so hopefully it is an easy fix. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, a lot has happened in the past 3 weeks. I was notified last week that I am a finalist for the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design team. Each year, Stampin' Up! holds a creative contest for its demonstrators. To enter, you must submit 5 card samples, 3 scrapbook pages, and 2 3D items. Stampin' UP selects 20 finalists from all of the entries and those finalists will have their work on display at our annual convention. On awards night at convention, Stampin' Up narrows the field to 10 demonstrators who are then part of the Design Team for the next year. It is such an honor to be in the top 20 again this year. So many creative demonstrators enter this contest and I can't imagine how difficult it must be to narrow it down to 20, or even 10.
I've been very busy working on project suites for the latest round of UStamp–Cards with Cool Moves. There are some fabulous ideas and anyone can join. Check it out here. Here is a peek at my first project suite:
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to be completely up & running by next week with more creative inspiration for you.
