Andddd... we're off!

It's been an insane last few days to say the least. Jon threw me a surprise 40th b-day party on Saturday and I did not suspect at thing. Even the kids kept it well hidden... so much behind-the-scenes planning and scheming! I thought I was coming back to the office to work on my Surtex art boards but when I glanced in the windows there was like 30 or 40 people inside waving and smiling. WOW... it was so cool (and super sweet)! Jon took this pic of me as I drove up... my mouth agape as my friend, Nikki (the crazy camera strap girl) points and screams! haha


Of course, it put me way behind on work so I had to spend all of Mother's Day printing and assembling my boards. But that's OK, like I said last night on Twitter, I love my job and wouldn't trade this craziness for anything in the world.

Before I get too deep into my post I wanted to thank all of you who commented on our ribbon release (we are so excited about it!!) and announce the contest winners. The randomizer picked #7 and #109 out of 199 comments...

Beautiful! I'd love a camera strap (my poor camera is still "stock"), or some of those purdy ribbons! : ) 6:11 PM
