*sigh*

It's been an emotional weekend for me. Friday I anxiously awaited the announcement of the design team that I applied for. At first I really knew that I wasn't going to get picked (the talent pool was INCREDIBLE). But when it came down to the line, all the ladies that were getting a "no" had received emails from the store owner and I kept checking, kept checking, and checked my inbox some more...I never received that "no thank you" email. At that point I was getting that twinge of excitement. Could it really be? Well, after quite awhile (so it seemed), the owner did announce the new team. I obviously wasn't on there. Unfortunately for me, my hopes had been up and when I found out it was a real bummer. (I did email, Michelle, the owner to let her know what happened and she was very, very apologetic for the oversight.)

Saturday, my awesome, wonderful husband took me to Granger, IN to Pages in Time - a HUGE scrapbook store. I was able to get some great stuff. It's part of my early birthday gift. :)

Yesterday, was church. We didn't end up going to the evening service. Nick & Jim were at a Skillet concert in Elkhart and I ended up grocery shopping, doing some house-cleaning and helping Nicholas with a new scrapbook page. That boy never ceases to amaze me with his creativity. I'll have to post his page later. :)

Well, I'm off to hopefully get some scrapping done myself...
Pin It!

I have to agree with Kelly that your work is amazing. It is their loss to pass over you! You certainly have the quality of work to make it on a design team.

So sorry!
