Woo Hoo!

Today has been a fun day - I won Jennifer Pebbles A Muse giveaway blog contest! Thanks Jennifer - I am so excited! I also got my new Stampin' Up catalog from Shanynn - she brought it over as soon as she opened the box! Thanks Shanynn! I even made a name frame baby gift and sent out two birthday cards! (I'd post pics, but then they wouldn't be a surprise.)

So here is the scoop on the new Stampin' Up catalog - it is awesome! Even though I've been stamping for five years, I am still amazed at how fresh the catalog looks every year. All I could think about while I poured over the pages was how much work it must take for everyone at Stampin' Up to create this fabulous book. To figure out new sets, colors, papers, prices, the catalog layout, and then make coordinated samples and photography for each page so every page is spectacular... my mind is spinning thinking about the number of people involved and the amount of work it must take. And if they are like most companies - hours of editing and decision-making too! How many samples do you think they made for each stamp set before they picked one that worked best for the page? Ok, I am off to work on my wishlist!
