I am overwhelmed....

with the amount of Design Team submissions I'm receiving!! (35 submissions in just 3 hours today! WOW!!) There are some ROCKIN' good scrapbookers, card makers and paper crafters from all over the world!! I started going through the submissions one at a time Friday night for about 4 hours, then again on Saturday for about 6 hours with the help of some in house ladies, and now today, Sunday, I'm working on it again. I have know idea how I'm going to pick and choose when everyone is so good!! Soooo I've decided to have a domestic and an international DT!! I haven't decided on how many designers for each team yet, but I will very soon!!
You all have about 4 hours left to submit and I can't wait to announce who will be "Willie-B's Design Team" next week!!
Thanks for all your VERY, VERY kind words and Good Luck to you all!! -Nikki
