Looking forward to sweet OCTOBER AFTERNOONS...

October Afternoon is a new company that just debuted at CHA. They have gorgeous stamps, rub-ons, and paper. They have stuff which I would love to use in my pages. Plus the extremely talented Michelle Guray is designing for them. So when I saw that there was a DT call, I really made it a point to apply and I have been lurking in the pub forum of Two Peas to check if there was any news. Call day came and I got no call. Toots have been posted - and still no call. And then I opened my email September 6 in the afternoon not expecting anything (cause I usually receive international emails in the early morning due to the time difference) and saw this...

Hi Iris,

I am writing to welcome you to the October Afternoon Design Team! :D

We are contacting our international members last (only because I had
to figure out the time zone differences and arrange a time to place
the calls). But then, I don't seem to have your phone number. :)

We absolutely *love* your work! I am so happy to have you on our
team! We will post the entire DT list on our website once we hear
back from you and one other international member. In the meantime,
you do *not* have to keep this a secret! Please feel free to tell
anyone that you like!

Welcome to October Afternoon!

Kim :D


WOW!! I was shrieking all over again. My family has gotten used to that by now. I'm so excited!! This is my first manufacturer DT. I have been having a lot of "firsts" in the scrapping industry lately and I am just so thankful to the Lord for blessing me this way. I just love this craft so much and this really means a lot to me.

I can't wait to get to know the other designers who are all so talented and accomplished. Wow, still can't believe it.
