I was out for an all-day field trip with my youngest daughter’s class today and came home to discover that I am the guest designer on UStamp today!  Finally – I get to show you what I made as my project tutorial for this online class!

This is my version of a desk-top organizer – designed to hold all those little things that collect on a desk top and take up precious room:

It’s not too late to join us for daily fun at UStamp with Dawn and Friends “With Love…2010”.  Register here today and receive all the projects included with this session running until February 14th.

TTFN!

One more day until I make the draw for the FREE pass to Ustamp with Dawn and Friends 2010 with Love event.  If you haven’t already sent me an entry, you have until noon tomorrow!

I thought I would share with you one of the projects I made this week using a template I got as part of the UStamp 2009 Yearend Blowout event ending today.  This tutorial came from the very talented designer, Tracey Old.  This calendar took me about 20 minutes in total to make – that’s my kind of project!!

I can finally share with you all some news I have been holding inside for a couple of months…guess what it is???

No, I’m not pregnant as that would be bad news!!!!  Guess again…

No, I’ve have not won any lottery…okay, I’ll tell you…

I was asked to be a guest designer for Ustamp with Dawn and Friends with love…2010!!!

What is UStamp you may ask???

It’s an online class run by Dawn Rapsas (Stampin’ Up!’s 2009 #1 USA Demonstrator of the Year) and her friends from around the world.  Every day for 28 days or so, members of UStamp are able to download a new project tutorial.  Plus there are dail prizes, live chats with other members and designers, an organized swap and guest apprearances from some of the best SU designers out there!

Did I mention I’m excited???

I have been a member of UStamp since the Fall session and have reaped the reward of downloading some great projects.  One evening in November I was answering emails like any other evening and came across a message from Dawn, which in itself was not unusual – often there are messages from her regarding Ustamp updates.  I didn’t realize until I opened the message that she was addressing me personally and asking if I would be interested in being a guest designer for the first 2010 UStamp!!!  I honestly sat there for a few moments wondering if she sent me the message by mistake!  Me???  How does the #1 rated US demo even know me???  My heart was beating very fast and I couldn’t sit still!  I called my husband over and showed him the message, explained what this meant and I didn’t quite get the response I was looking for…so I called my mom.  Surely mom could react in the appropriate manner!  I was not disappointed – she was more than supportive and assured me I could take on this challenge…so here we go!!!

Here is Dawn’s official announcement:
