Has it been three years ago today since I started this lovely business? Has it been three years that I’ve come to know so many great people across the world? I’m always amazed at just how blessed I am to get to do what I do and get to know all of you while I do it.
I am grateful every. single. day.
I took a gander back at that very first kit and the very first post announcing my new gig. How many of you remember–or have–this kit?
Wow. That just seems like forever ago. I’ve come a long way since then, eh? ;) Now I’m up to 180+ kits or so? Crazy! I remember when Nichol Magouirk made a page using this kit. I was just in awe (well, let’s face it, I’m always in awe with what she makes).
( to see this original page from nichol on her blog, click HERE )
Love. Love. Loved that page.
Nichol was my very first official design team member. Love her dearly.
And then there were more.
Shari Carroll, Laura Vegas, Robyn Werlich, Naomi Atkins and Layle Koncar.
Adore each and every one of them.
So boys+girls, this week is just gonna be full of birthday fun! We’ll be seeing layouts from all of the design team, and maybe even a guest designer (I love secrets). Tips+tricks will be a must this week. And perhaps a new kit might make an appearance. And giveaways. Must have some of those too.
But most importantly, what would be a birthday celebration without this:
That’s right. Everything in the entire store is 25% off on orders of $15 or more through Sunday, August 11. (Excludes the Designer Secrets class, which is already on sale.) Use the code BIRTHDAY3 at checkout. There won’t be another sale like this in quite a while, so if you wanted to stock up on shapes or classes? Now would be a great time to do it!
And I think we need to start this week with a Giveaway!
Trying something new in the giveaway department. Ever since those girls at Eighteen25 used this for a giveaway of classes of mine on their site, I’ve been dying to try it out. What better day is there than today, eh? The contest ends at midnight Monday night (Mountain Time), so be sure to use all the options because for every one you do, you get another chance to win!
Very excited about this week! You won’t want to miss a day!
