Well okay that made it sound like it's a really big deal didn't it! LOL But I do have some news to tell you guys! Joy from Obsessed With Scrapbooking, you might also know her as one of the "Hello Thursday Girls" that show projects with the new Cricut cartridges, contacted me not long ago asking if I wanted to be on a Design Team for her website. To be honest I had swore I would never be on another design team after the last fiasco of a design team I participated in *okie shakes her head and still fumes at the way the designers were treated* but since I do like Joy and know her personally I was more than glad to do some DT work for her, and besides her husband is a TOTAL HOTTIE!! And he really does have a fantastic personality!

I may later regret agreeing to doing this whole thing because after I found out who else is on the team I am thinking "WTH REALLY??" I mean did Joy have to really ask the top most talented papercrafters and then ask me? *okie sighs deeply and shakes her head slowly* I am afraid my projects won't even begin to compete!

Anywho...Here are the other designers on the Design Team with me...

Susan Edwards from Busy With The Cricky

Nadia Herbst-McConnell from With Glittering Eyes

Christina Thomas from Creations With Christina

Maybe I will get lucky and the other gals will be having a bad crafting day when they do their projects and mine won't look so bad! 

On a little side note, one of my favorite web shopping places, Happy N Scrappin, has a great sale on some Basic Grey items right now so if you are a Basic Grey lover like me you might want to check them out!


  1. Great choice on Joy's part Okie. You can hold your own with the best of them. Have fun and congratulations! hugs, eileen

  2. Don't sell yourself short, you do fantastic work. Have fun!

  3. Girl! Quit talking bad about my friend! You know your work is amazing! I love it and so will everyone else. That's why she picked you! Best of luck!

  4. Okie -- you know we love your cards and everyone has their own style. Maybe you should make another Naughty card. I love those!

    I was making a Halloween card last night and even my husband was helping me! LOL. I'll have to post it when I'm done.

    Keep doing what you love! Glad you got the mojo back!

  5. Congrats! Your work is fantastic. Look forward to seeing your great projects.

  6. WHOA! Another DT? Really? OMG GF, you are much braver than I am. But not to worry, you will do a totally amazing job. Joy is a very wise woman to have asked you to join her team ... Your talents and creativity always shine through and I know you will do her proud!



  7. You'll be a great asset to Joy's design team. You're work is amazing. I just recently found you're website and joined your blog and I'm very pleased with everything you've created especially the "Naughty Girl series". I bet no one can compete with that series so you'll have to do another naughty girl series or maybe a "Naughty Boy Series" for all of us that have warped minds. Congratulations on joining the design team!

  8. Congratulations! What an honor to be asked to part of a design team! You'll do great because everything I've seen is amazing!

  9. You are cracking me up. You are totally awesome and you know it so don't even pretend you don't. :P

    Well, Miss Thang, I had to come over here after my blog stats showed traffic from this site. Thanks for the shout out and I know your projects will be fantastic because they always are. I am a follower so I know!

    Oh, and one day I am gonna do a naughty girl card and send it to you... but I won't be able to put it on my blog. I have a rep to protect. (I heard that on a movie once and knew I would quote it one day.)
