Someone Pinch Me...

Definitely ME!
<-----

Around 9:26 EST last night the phone rings?! Dave say's "Who in the world could be calling at this hour?" I don't know, fumbling for the phone to check the caller id... UNKNOWN? Don't those telemarketers know the blessed time zone their calling?! I NEVER answer UNKNOWN, however I did last night...

GOOD THING! It was Liz Pomeroy of Cornish Heritage Farms congratulating me on becoming one of ten, new Fresh Face Design Team Members! OMGosh, really?! I can't believe it. Your kidding... goodness only knows what else I had to say! I do remember telling Liz that I was the "crazy NH girl!" Honest to goodness, I couldn't help myself... it just slipped out! *rolling eyes at self* If first impressions count for anything I beg of you Liz to give me another chance. *wink* Lisa Strahl had a similar experience this afternoon.

Thank-you Richard, Liz and Lisa for this wonderful opportunity you've bestowed me. What an honor to be able to work with so many talented designers.

Congratulations to the other nine members chosen in this design team call. I'm looking forward to getting to know and work with all of you.

Lesley Langdon - ON, Canada
Alli Miles - BC, Canada
Linda Abadie - South Korea
Amanda McIlhatton - N. Ireland
Lisa Silver - MO, USA
Kristine Reynolds - CA, USA
Mary Anderson - NH, USA
Dawn Lusk - OH, USA
Lori Craig - MO, USA

For everyone who submitted their work for consideration and weren't chosen, please read Lisa's special post. Very touching and so true. So don't be discouraged or take it personally, most of all... don't give up on your dream! Dreams can come true... ten just did!
I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
