Yard sale!

Well it's that time of year again. My local scrapbook store is having thier bi-annual yard sale. ETC at Lindsey & University in Mesa, AZ has two of these sales each year.  One in the spring and one in the fall.  It is so much fun to go!  You can get some great finds at fantastic deals :)  Although I have participated the last 3 or 4 times, I still have such a hard time motivating myself to go through my craft room and decide what to keep & what to sell. 
 
 I have a confession...I am a scrapbook collector. When I find a collection I like, I feel the need to buy everything in the set (paper, stamps, bling, borders, chipboard, stickers, embellishments...EVERYTHING!).  I always have great intentions of saving it for that "special" project and then never use it.  It sits in my room, collecting dust and then I find something newer, something better.  My decision making process is complicated by the little voice in the back of my head saying "don't get rid of that...it's still cute...you might find a good project to use that for."
 
I put it off because it is always such a HUGE undertaking. The only good thing is that each time I do this, my room seems a little lighter...a lot take brighter... & a whole lot more inviting!  I have also come up with some great storage options which I will share later.
 
Wish me luck...it's time to go in!
 
 

FotoBella.com Design Team

Well, after much deliberation last weekend, I answered the Design Team call for one of my favorite sites, Fotobella.com.  As you all know I have not had much luck with these the past couple of years.  I have found the Design Team selection process and competition to be a lot tougher than it was 8 years ago.  
 
While sitting on the couch Monday after work with my love (who was intently watching the football game), I submitted my application and samples to FotoBella and hoped for the best.  The call details had promised to contact the selected members on Wednesday.  When I didn't hear anything, I chalked it up an experience that would make me better the next time I applied and made a mental note to check the blog on Friday to see who the lucky winners were.  While I was at work on Thursday, I heard my cell ringing from the depths of my purse.  I quickly fished it out (which was not an easy task), looked at the phone and decided let it go to voice mail.  Within a couple of minutes, my phone chirped notifying me that I had a voicemail (boy that darn thing can be persistent!).  I was intrigued and decided to listen. 
 
To my shock and amazement, it was the sweet voice of Cher from FotoBella welcoming me to Design Team!  What...me???  I had to listen to the message a couple of times before it actually sunk in.  Yes, FotoBella.com wanted ME!!!   I had been selected as 1 of 4 new design team members for the October 15, 2012 to April 15, 2013 team.  Our team also has been blessed with 2 returning members.
 
Congrats to Apryl, KimberlyRae, Lisa, Jeri & Sarinda.  I look forward to seeing what these talented ladies come up with each month and look forward to getting to know each one of them better.
 
As a design team member, I will be designing a layout, card & tag each month for FotoBella.com and I cannot wait to share them  with you.
