One of the highlights of CHA-Summer was having dinner with these crazy awesome Cocoa Daisy girls:
From left to right: Lisa Pace, Christine Drumheller, and Ronda Palazzari. I am pleased to tell you that not only are all three of these ladies crazy talented, but they are genuinely nice people. Without a doubt they are three of the loveliest ladies in this crafty industry.
Christine recently purchased Cocoa Daisy (I'm a proud subscriber) and is slowly putting her own mark on this popular kit club. She has recruited a top notch design team that includes some of my most favorite artsy scrappers. Some of the girls are well known, but most of them are just awesome at rocking paper, glue and scissors in quirky and interesting ways.
Christine also re-designed the Cocoa Daisy logo...
...to more accurately reflect her personal style. Isn't it cute? And I know she's been making changes to how the website works, the way the kits are photographed, and they even have these cool stamp-only subscriptions! Each month you get three exclusive Cocoa Daisy stamps. There are a few stamps that I've missed and been kicking myself about.
I'm thrilled to share that the November Cocoa Daisy kit has the Balzer Designs for TCW Fragmented Flower stencil in it!
But wait! That's not all the good news I've got to share.
About a month ago Christine asked me if I'd be interested in designing a tote bag for Cocoa Daisy.
So what do you think? Did I do a good job?
Tote bags are currently available for sale right here.
I'm thrilled to be able to support a fellow artist in her new endeavor as a kit club owner. Check out the Cocoa Daisy website and forums if you get a chance.
And save November 11-13 on your calendar because Cocoa Daisy is having an online crop! The design team is busy putting together fun challenges, classes, and games. Laughter and prizes are sure to be included in this delightful weekend! And there will be a live hour-long chat with me on November 12 (Saturday) at 4pm EST. Make sure you are registered on the Cocoa Daisy message boards so you can play along!
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. If you signed up for "30 Days in Your Journal" - thank you! And you should have received a username and password for the class from me. Please e-mail me if you haven't. Today is day seven of Grand Jury Duty for me, so I'll get back to you as soon as possible, but likely after 5pm.
