Yes, I know I'm famous now…I'll try not to let it go to my head. But y'all aren't helping, LOL! Thank you so much for the comments, emails, and posts to my FB page!

My BFF Mary is not helping either. I got in her car to go shopping with her yesterday. And she says, "So, CAN I HAVE YOUR AUTOGRAPH?!?!?" I thought she was kidding!

She wasn't. She made me autograph her Stampin' Success. She is one of my downline…at least, for a little while longer. This is Mary's second time as my downline and this time she signed up just to get the kit special we ran a while back. So she gets the magazine, opens in late in the evening while she is in bed with her husband and wakes him up by squealing when she saw the article. I had told her I would be in there, but she must have forgot.

For those of you who are not demos and/or who have  not seen this magnificent piece of publishing art, I show it to you:

I was contacted back in ? September, I think it was, and told of this honor I was to be given and I was VERY excited. For the article, I was asked to do 5 projects using a stamp set that they would send me and I was only asked what style I would prefer and I chose "shabby chic" and got Vintage Vogue shortly afterward. Because it was not in production yet, my set was laser cut, much as the personalized stamps are. There were wood blocks, but no stickers for the top. But they still work champion! I love the set and had a great time making my projects. For being in the magazine, SU! also gave me three free sets of stamps. Gotta love that! I also had to stick to one color scheme and I had the choice there. I chose a combination that is from the In Color combination chart for this year and fell in love with it!

So here are the projects, including the other little cards not shown in the magazine:

Yes, I know they are all GOJOMACIOUS!!!! (YILM!) And I am still not over the thrill of the article…I fully intend to frame it and put it up in my stampin' area, to remind me of my 15 minutes of fame!

But for now, famous as I am, I have a cold. Smiley from millan.netSo it was nice to be able to post something I didn't have to make right beforehand and it was even nicer to have all those ingredients lists already typed up, since I had to send them to the magaine. Right now I'm not suffering from it too much…I always start taking zinc right from the start and that takes out most of the nasty symptoms, but the fatigue is still there.

I have fulfilled all kit orders at this time except for the paper bag kits and I should be able to get those all cut and ready this weekend. And good news for those of you hoping for more Coaster Calendar kits! I have ordered some of the current Patterns paper from the catalog and will be redesigning the kit to use them. The colors I am switching to are Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Rose Red. It will take me a week to get those in and I hope to have the kits ready to ship within a few days after Christmas. I'll be putting a button up with new pics of the redesigned kit in the kit store as soon as I receive the paper and you will be able to place orders at that time. I will also send out a reminder email to those of you who are on the waiting list.

And now for the Blog Candy! You like this set, Vintage Vogue? Or maybe now that you've seen these GOJUS projects I made (YILM!) you have experienced an epiphany and wish you had ordered it before? OR you are not a demo and have been waiting on pins and needles for January 5th to roll around so you can get it?

Well, this is the deal: I really would rather have the clear mount set rather than the wood block set, as my room is burstin' at the seams. And so I am going to give away the original set I received, the one that is laser cut and without index stickers. It still works beautifully and it is one of a kind.

I will give this set away  to one of the people who comment on this blog. You have to live the United States though, because I can't do this over international borders. You must comment by 12 M EST on December 18, 2009 to qualify. I will choose a winner by using random.org to pick a random number. On your mark, get set, COMMENT!

Ta!
