My Design Team kit came today :)

My goodies for the design team from The Enchanted Scrapper came in today.
I am sooo excited.
Here is the mini album "Vintage Car Album"...well I call it a maxi mini as it is about 6"x12".
It has a lot of add on as well.
 Here are the rest of the goodies.
Theresa asked me what "I" wanted in my kit.
I was so surprised...I thought when you were on a design team they gave you what "they" wanted you to use.
So when Theresa phoned me and asked me what "I" wanted I was shocked. I think I may have frustrated her a bit as I had no idea, lol.
I never know what I am going to do on a page until I am actually working on it. Plus I have so many of my own supplies and enjoy making my own embellishments, I really didn't know what to say.
So I told her to just send what she thought would go with my papers I selected.
So she told me to use what I wanted and I can use the extras on a different project :)
I have never tried to be on a design team because of a few reasons.
1. I don't think that I am good enough....seriously have you seen what some of those women do.
2. What if I don't like the papers or supplies they send me. How do you create something that you heart isn't in to.
3. Time....I don't like to be on a time schedule. I also work from my home and have 3 daughters. I want to enjoy my craft, I don't want it to feel like it is a job.

This is why being on This design team is perfect for me.
1. I was asked to be this team, I didn't apply for it.
2.Theresa designs the mini albums (which are awesome by the way, and I know of a few more that are coming :) But I get to choose my papers and embellishments. I can create the books how I want. She has total faith in me :)
3. Time is not an issue. She made it clear to me that she wants this to be fun for me. There is no time frame. I can do this when I feel inspired.
Seriously how perfect is this :)

Onto My Day:
I worked all day today.
I didn't even get in a second to make a card as I was hoping to.
I tried to phone Sharon today but her phone would ring once and then just static.
So I phoned the phone company to tell them what was going on (she has had this issue on and off for a couple years)
They told me to phone her, and get her to phone them for some trouble shooting.
Well Duh, How can I phone her when that is what the problem is. I had to remind this guy 3 times that I can't "phone" her as her phone is out. She probably doesn't even know it.

Then I got an email from my Internet provider, saying my email had to get deactivated and I needed to put in my email address and my password to re-activate it.
I didn't do it. But I phoned them just to be sure.
They told me it is a hoax.
If ever you are asked to put in your password, it is a hoax. Do Not Do It.
So there is my tip for you all today.

I hope you all had a creative Monday :)

  10. Congratulations!!! That is wonderful! I can't WAIT to see what you do with this album! And a flexible team like that really is a blessing! I have a couple like that and it is so nice!

  12. WOOHOO CONGRATS! This sounds like an awesome DT. Cannot wait to see the goodies you do.

  13. Looks like some great stuff! LOVE that car!! And congrats...have fun! :)

  14. How fun you got what you wanted from your kit. I hate having to explain issues with companies on the phone. Why does it take them so long to understand?

  15. They sent you some great supplies - can't wait to see your creations!

  16. OOOOOOO! I see some Lindy's in there! I love my Lindy's. She gave you a really nice kit. I love her albums, they are really big (for minis that is lol) There are a couple of other people that make their own die cuts for minis and one of them has a hot air balloon. Even with the amount of money I have spent in the last week alone I'm going to pull the trigger and get it. I hope it is still available.

  17. that looks really cool. fun kit

  21. You are SO WRONG about one thing....that you aren't "good enough". You are PLENTY good enough, and I'd daresay I think you are BETTER THAN MOST I'VE SEEN. So there.

  22. That looks like some fun stuff to play with. That's great that you got to pick what you wanted. I'm sure you'll do great.

  23. I've enjoyed making mini albums. There is so many techniques to choose from. I know you'll do well. Can't wait to see it.

  24. For the record, Theresa thought you might not want to join the DT BECAUSE you are SO TALENTED! SO there! nanny nanny boo boo;) LOL
    You are more then deserving of this and I am thrilled to follow along beside you my friend. You see I don't think I am good enough either:P
    Can't wait to see what you do.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
