Midnight Already?! Geez! I missed the 23rd ANNOUNCEMENT!

{I am done shopping.}
5.5 hours of pure dedication to getting it complete this evening.
I arrived home at 11:30 p.m. this evening.
I even asked the lady at Walmart to celebrate my last Christmas purchase with me by sharing a bottle of wine....she had to work till 4 a.m. - it didn't work out.
As I loaded the last bag into my Volvo I had a moment of peace - it lasted 2 seconds.
My heart HIT the Walmart Parking Lot when I realized I forgot to post my
NEW SCRAPBOOK Design Team Members!
How could I do that? ACK!
So I drove home as fast as I could with the roads being covered with slick sparkly snow. I had the intention to IMMEDIATELY get to my computer to make my final decisions and POST it.
BUT NO....my Internet is d-o-w-n.
So here I am at 12:25 with the Internet BACK in tact - my household sound asleep, my CHRISTMAS PRESENTS needing to be wrapped and my GUILT for not getting my post completed!
Now I have one more thing to tell you.
Please don't be angry.
WE haven't made our FINAL decision!
I know! I know! We only decided on ONE Amazing Lady so far...
Do you blame us! We had SO MANY APPLICANTS!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE............

I hope that you will leave her a comment and give her big cyber {{{hugs}}} to congratulate her!
...in the meantime, I hate to say this - however....
I need more time!
{I asked Chris if you girls would be mad at me....he said no - that you would all understand - so you have to listen to him, K?!}
I am going to look over the applicants after I am done with all my wrapping tomorrow.
I will make another announcement by FRIDAY evening.
I am sorry to have to extend this - but I really have SO MANY to choose from and I need my girls to help me make that final choice again!

Let's switch MODES and take a peek at my TALENTED Jeanne.
This gal has skills.
I'm telling ya!
{can you keep a little secret? she even helped me complete the January Kit of the Month today with her talent....yep - she is an artist besides!}
Do you think I should give you girls a little sneak peek of the January KOM?
I am feeling like I should since it is CHRISTMAS!
Perhaps Friday, I shall do that!
Geez...some people have all the TALENT IN THE WORLD and Jeanne is one of them!

Thanks for being so patient with me today Jeanne!
I missed DT Tuesday - we are now to WEDNESDAY and I apologize for that!
She has an AMAZING blog that just makes you want to grab your stamps and CREATE something beautiful like her!

ALSO.... I wanted to include some of our CHOICE GAL and New Unity Scrapbook Design Team Member, Lynn Ghahary.

She has an amazing display of projects on her blog. These are just a couple she sent with her application for Design Team.

A HUGE CONGRADS and Welcome to You, Lynn!
