I’m so excited!!! I’m glowing today. December 7, 2007

The wait is over.  If you are a Stampin’ Up! demo, Onstage is now online and will be in your mailbox shortly.  This is one of the perks to being a Demo…getting this magazine and seeing the amazing work of fellow demos.   And due to Stampin’ Up! policies, this work is their property, so I can’t post it here for non-demos to see.  Take my word, I worked hard:)

This is the first time one of my creations was altered by SU!’s design team and made it to the cover page.  It makes me want to cry to see my daughters name on the front cover, and my creations (I’m silly, I cried at convention when I saw pics of my kids displayed).   I cried with the last issue…I opened it up, and there was a pic of my little son Ethan in the contents. 

Oh, can’t forget the online extra they also posted.  It is a garland that coordinates with the Thanksgiving Place Setting. 

Go check it out.  Have a wonderful day:)

    Ok, am I the only one who can’t see it online? Weird. I only see April’s edition. Anyhow, I’ll keep checking my mailbox for it and congrats to you!!! Can’t wait to see what you made.

  18. Congratulations, Mary Jo! I would be the exact same way if I saw something I made with my sweet boys’ faces in a national magazine! That rocks, and you are so very worthy of all the acclaim that comes your way. You are so unbelievably talented — my jaw drops every time I visit your blog!

    Speaking of visiting your blog, I have an ulterior motive — I’m tagging you! : ) See my blog for details. Hugs!
