Lily Bee, etc.

A while back, I had the honor of guest designing for the scrapbook manufacturer, Lily Bee.

At the time, I had the secret hope that they would someday have a design team call, looking to add new members to their team.

You'd better bet that as soon as I saw this posted on their blog, I got excited- and waaay nervous.
I know that my competition is going to be crazy fierce.

But I can't sit idly by and let this opportunity slip away- so I'm throwing my name into the mix with the hope that on the off chance they will need a crazy lady with a handsome husband and four cute kiddos on their team. :)
These are my two submissions. I made this little embellishment with a Silly Band. :) Don't tell Atticus I stole it from his drawer. He's got 3 more of these stars (and the majority of his Bands are scattered on the floor of his room), so I don't think he'll miss it.

Also, I had the great surprise a few days ago when I saw on my sitemeter that I was getting hits from Apartment Therapy. HUH?!! They saw my little Dollar Tree chalkboard tray and featured it on their blog.

The funny thing about this is, some of the commenters weren't very nice. My Grams noticed it.

Dude. Don't ever mess with someone's grandma. (See her comment- she's "yonfletch".) I can be featured on the biggest blogs in the world, but it doesn't matter to me as much as my Grandma being on my side. Priceless.


  1. Hey, Virg, they'd be CRAZY to not pick you!!! These are awesome, I especially like the layout and that Silly Band is perfect :) Good luck to you- I've been rooting for you ever since I found out you were applying and hope to see your name on that list. When is it going to be up? I know it's soon, so I'll have to go check :)
