Monday!!

ETA--The drawing for the RAK will be on Friday, July 11th--so you have plenty of time to upload and post the link here--thank you!

Hello Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend, doing all the fun and festive things people do with friends and family. I don't ever recall trying to stuff so many parties or gatherings into the past 5 days like I have done over this weekend personally, and I have enjoyed each and every one--including celebrating my birthday!! It was low-key and personal, and ended with fireworks--just the way I like it!! Special thanks to the WIP design team who filled in for me while I was out--I appreciate you pitching in like that!

Speaking of big days, tomorrow is the official announcement of the brand new Work in Progress Design Team!! I will post the photos, blog & gallery links right here on the ole WIP blog. I am so excited to make the announcement, and also deeply touched that so many applied for the positions. I thought last year was tough--and this was much more difficult. The resumes, the layouts, the incredible wealth of talent out there--it is really overwhelming. The fact that this little old blog is read all over the world kind of freaks me out! And I never really knew until I got applications from Iceland, Australia, the Philippines, Norway, Sweeden, France--I mean I don't even know what to say!! I had people submitting from all over the United States too--and I'm so proud of the way people have conducted themselves throughout this whole process. It isn't easy putting yourselves out there, and I appreciate what it takes. I am SO grateful to you all for submitting, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart...

I'd also like to publicly thank each design team member from the past year for all of their wonderful creative support. I truly know that the kit club would not be what it is today without their help, their input, and their amazing talent. I loved learning about all this and growing with you--so thank you for all you have done!! I Love you gals!!

Okay, so now for a bit of fun in which you can all participate! I've had several requests from people for the logos. Well, Janelle Richmond was kind enough to make this one below, and I took the liberty to link it to the URL from photobucket for you all. Thanks, Janelle! So if you'd like to add this to your signatures or personal blogs, by all means DO! And if you happen to join in on the fun and send me a link to your new WIP signature, your name will be submitted for a RAK that will surpass all previous RAK's...I promise!! I tried to make it as painless as possible for you all...

For the RED logo, copy and paste the HTML code after clicking on the logo:

Janelle's Logo

to your URL feed on blogger.


And for the Blue logo, copy and paste the HTML code after clicking on the logo:
WIP--Logo--block
to your URL feed on blogger.

Please let me know if you have any problems with it, okay? And yes, you can post several links for multiple entries!! Just be sure to post a link to them so I can verify them!

Alright, that is it for now, so enjoy your day everyone!
