Layouts, radio interviews, classes and of course SHIPPING...

I had to share this layout with everyone, Kat Glossop, one of my International design team girls made it using my Henry Brilliance paper line!! (I love seeing what everyone does with these lines, she totally made this "dog" layout using my "back to school" papers!!) I love that!! Great Job Kat!! As you know I'm a huge fan of DOGS!!
This was created by Deana Boston another one of DT girls (a local MO girl to me) and it was featured on the "catwalk" over at Scrap in Style!! You just rocked it out Deana!! I just love that tree, and bird, and flag and and and.... all of it!!!!!

Today, Wednesday, I'm going to be featured on the Diva Craft Lounge!! For those of you that don't know it's a great radio show that's broadcast's in 107 countries. Danielle and Rayme are the host and are so fun to listen too!! I met Dainelle at my booth at CHA and I knew who she was immediately!! Once we got back home she asked if I'd come on her show and soooo tomorrow at 2pm central time I'll be on!!!!! EEK!!!!! Wish me luck, I've never done anything like this before!!!

Next a sweet lady by the name of Michelle Vocke, that met my dh at CHA, wrote a very nice article about me teaching at the GASC in TN!! You can read about it here: Examiner. This was a big surprise, I had know idea anyone even knew I was going to be teaching at that convention!!

Last but not least...... we are shipping fools around here!! We are working day and night getting shipments out after CHA and trying to keep up with the new orders that are coming in everyday!! We worked all weekend and all day everyday until late in the night trying to keep up!!
(The open boxes are the shipments that have to be double checked and closed up, the stacked closed boxes are waiting for Fed Ex to arrive and be picked up!!)
This was today's 2nd round of boxes, we shipped 34 boxes just today!! So please understand we are doing our very best to get all our products out and shipped to the retail stores as soon as possible!! Until next time... goodnight!! -Nikki

The store I design for got their shipment in this past week. I was able to pick up some of my favorite pieces in advance at the CHA Supershow on Friday. So when I did my DT reveal today I used your products & could create more buzz. I love the way it turned out - your bread tags are one of my favorite unique embellishments from the show.

My blog post today has the layout & I've gotten lots of great comments in galleries so thanks for making a cute product!
