News, News and More News!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone!!
So sorry I have been M.I.B (missing in blog land)!!! I have been super Duper busy!! We all know how that goes. My head has been spinning from all that has been happening in the last 3 weeks!! I have no idea where September went!! LOL!!!

Ok, for all the juicy details:

I was Super Super excited, honored, overjoyed to be ask by Mo of Digital Pencil to join her spankin' new Design Team. She hand selected a few of us girls for her team and then opened up the remaining spot for application. She had such a great response to her DT Call that she ended up forming 2 teams (she is also going to do Mo Challenges)...Woo Hoo!! Lots of Talented girls!! Mo was also asked by Stampavie to make some of her images into stamps sooooo, she said yes and soon you will see Mo's images everywhere. Yay...Go Mo!!!!!!! One thing you should know about Mo...she is as nice as she is talented!!
Thanks a million My friend Mo!!!

I also excited to have been asked by Claudia of Die Cuts R Us to not only be her full time Product Spotlight Designer, but to your her DCRU Design Team as well!!!! I am so excited to join her wonderful team of talented and beyond sweet girls!! It feels like home since I already know most of the girls!! Not to mention the fact that Claudia and I have just clicked!! not only do we share a love of crafting, but we are Sisters in Christ and it is always a great feeling when you are able to share with like minded friends!!!!
Thanks so much Claudia!!

P.S. Tomorrow Claudia is having another GIANT Copic sale!!! Get your Copics at Fantastic prices!!!!!!!!!!

The Deadline to sign the new IDA for SU! came and went and as you all have probably already guessed...I didn't sign it!!!! So onward and upward!! As of yesterday October 1st, i guess I am no longer a SU! demo. Still a bit sad, but getting easier and easier to take everyday!! thanks for you emails, comments and care!!! I love having all of you in my life!!!

One more little bit of news....By LORi Designs is going Rubbah!!!!!!!!!!
Yep, that's right...I received an email from Emily Bella of Stamping Bella herself 3 weeks ago and can you believe it....she loved my designs and wanted to make them into rubber stamps!!! Of course, I have to admit I thought that maybe, just maybe I was being filmed for Candid Camera or Punked!!! But nope, she soon called me and well the rest is history!!! I am not really sure it has all sunk!! It is all so exciting and scary at the same time!!! Em is truly a sweet sweet person, so kind, patient and understanding!!! I blessed or what!! I have been approached in the past to rubberize my designs, but never felt comfortable. There was always a feeling of NO...don't do it, but Emily is different!! So here I go off into the big world of Rubber Stamps!!! I hope all of you are as excited as I am!! I'm happy about getting to show you some By LORi Designs you haven't seen before!!!
Thanks Emily... for believing in me!!!!

One thing I have learned ....
When God closes a door (and you stay focused on Him no matter what), He really does open a window!!!!!!!!! And I am LOVING the view!!!!!

~Hugs and Blessings ~
