Fiskateer Carrie in a crafting contest with Mark Montano. although she took second place her shirt art was truly #1. No kidding. The voting was done by screams and I guess I just didn't scream loud enough. But everyone said hers was the BeSt.

My Scrapbooking News

Check out Moxie. Such a funny story. I love Moxie and wanted to stop by their booth at CHA for a Moxie T-Shirt. As I was talking with the owner / designer of Moxie someone walked up to the booth with a Moxie T-shirt on and started a chant....."Moxie, Moxie, I've got Moxie. I've got Moxie how 'bout you?" Then she pointed to me. I'm game since I'm crazy as can be at CHA. So I repeated the chant and pointed to another lady who had just come up wearing a Moxie T-shirt. In turn she repeated the Moxie Chant. Now folks I thought we were just having a lot of fun.

Here's the scoop. Earlier in the day after Moxie had their giveaways the owner had said that if someone could get someone unaware to repeat the chant that person and the unenlightened one would receive the line of their choice of Moxie. I knew nothing. After the chant everyone in the booth was laughing their heads off. The owner literally put her head under the table in disbelief. I was standing there thinking this was just some good ole' fun.

They finally told me the story. I remember the owner saying "That'll teach me." And laughing. They told me to pick out a line I liked. Here is where I get the shock of my life. I pick out a line, give Moxie my business card. She came back and said do you really want all that as a designer? I did not understand. She asked me if I would like equal value in kits? Well, I liked the paper. I thought I was getting a pack of paper with one or two sheets of the line. NOOOOOOO. I won the whole package deal. 25 sheets of everything! When they meant the whole line they meant the whole retailers package. HOLY COW! I was laughing and crying. I chose the kits since I teach. But this was the most fun I'd ever had just being me!!!
You can also see my name and projects over at PaperCrazy. They have been holding a month (or more) long challenge. I won Challenge 2, 3, 4 and the GRAND PRIZE! I'm so very excited. I met Yvonne during CHA and spent time with her talking. I love her. She is so proud of the design team and share their work with me. It was a fun fun time.
