A few thoughts....

I just wanted to share a few thoughts today.... first, chose 482 from the comments left for the Pink Paislee blog party. Number 482! Wow! And Valerie has already been contacted and is due to receive her prize pack soon. I have no idea what's in it, but I'm sure it involves the new release, which is FABULOUS. So that's very exciting! Congrats to her.

I also wanted to say thank you for all the encouragement regarding Cosmo. As you may have seen, I didn't end up making the team. At first, I admit, I was rather devastated. And then I saw their new release, and I was soooooooo bummed. But then I got to thinking about all the positive things that were said to me, and it made me feel so much better about it all. It's hard to separate the business side of the industry from the pieces of your heart that you put on paper, but I guess Cosmo didn't think I was a perfect fit for their team. Maybe someday. In the meantime, I'll still play with their product. Especially Mr Campy. I'm dyin' for that one. One of those little marshmallows is going to get on a scrapbook layout with Morgan' mug in it SOON, lol.

At first I was leary about putting myself out there, but I am now comforted in knowing that I have a lot of support, and I will be less hesitant to do so in the future. So THANK you. Very much.

That's it. I just wanted to thank you. I've been busy getting CHA work done and just received my August Studio Calico kit to work with.... if you haven't seen the sneaks yet, jet on over there and on the main page, just wait for the slideshow to zip past the current kit and you'll be able to check it out. The August kit is called Confections, and it is really delicious, if I do say so, lol. I have been having a lot of fun with it and I'll have peeks for you tomorrow morning.

I'll be off to CHA on Thursday. I am flying to Chicago via San Francisco. I am really excited to hang out with my sandwich, Nic, and Nik, and will be busy strolling the floors for SC. So if you are there and you see me, say hello! I'll have on my SC t-shirt. And capris. And maybe flip flops. I haven't decided. I still need to pack! I'm dreading tomorrow, because I know I'll want to stay home, lol. That's what happens to me right before I go. I NEED the break from the kids, but then when it comes time to go, I won't want to go anymore, lol. I'll be fine once I get on a plane. My flight leaves at 6:30am on Thursday and the family is dropping me off at the airport as it's only 10 minutes away and we don't want to pay for my car to sit there all weekend.... so wish me luck. When my girls cry it just rips my heart out.

Anyway.... peeks in the morning. Thanks for listening to me ramble! :)


  1. Shucks, Davinie, I figured you were a shoo-in after Julie admitted she'd been admiring your work for a while! I can't imagine how they cut it down from over 300 applications, and you have every right to feel proud you were one of the distinguished finalists. You do good work.

  2. Have a fantastic time at CHA! To say I'm jealous is an understatement! :)

  3. I was bummed for you when I heard the news about CC. Continue to remember why you do this scrapbooking thing to begin with and keep smiling! You have a ton of talent!!
    Can't wait to see your peaks for CHA!

  4. Can't wait to meet you in person at CHA! Sorry to hear about the CC news, but I'm glad you still managed to walk away from it all with your chin up and a positive attitude. I, for one, totally love your work...and am one of your many, many admirers. See you at CHA. I'll be the nerd with the camera and cheesy grin!

  5. Have a blast at CHA Dav my dear :)
    Can't wait to hear all about it when you get home!!

    I can't believe you didn't make the CC DT, you're work is beautiful nd I love the mini you made! Hvave fun at CHA and pick out some awesome goodies for us SC girls!

  7. I really think it is CC's loss that they didn't pick you.

    Your work is amazing! And I just might lift that mini for a gift to my parents as I have all the elements already.

    Have fun at CHA!
