Get em while you still can!

Hello friends! Today we are reminding you all that these stamps are retiring on April 29th! Make sure your first stop today is the Unity blog here to get all the deets.
Yes it's been real and it's been fun creating with these early Unity gems. Oh looking thru my gallery brought back sweet memories! I found a fun layout I created with one of the retirees, Owl Be Mine
It all started with a simple act of kindness....
My favorite day of the week is Hip Hop
OK get out your hankies cause here's where it gets real. I found Unity surfing the net for challenge sites because I had newborn baby girl and was seriously fighting the baby blues. I had worked full time since the age of 16 and here I was home with a baby and no one to talk to so I turned to the internet to try to connect to people. Well in my search I came across the Hip Hop and Oh did it make me happy! So many sweet ladies to chat with, cute and fun stamps to win every week! I swear my early Unity was all freebies (thanks for that too!) and boy was I thankful! Giving up my management salary left us clippin coupons and having date night with the Tivo so expendable income for crafty stamps was not in the budget.
Ok...so flash forward to a random Hip Hop where Ang and the gang are chattin up CHA and I'm like "what's CHA?" and I swear I heard gasp come thru cyber space because as soon as Ang found out I had never been...well she offered up a ticket into the show. That ticket is the very one I refer to as my "golden ticket" so I went, I saw, I hugged new friends and here I am years later a designer for this amazing company! Dreams really do come true! Thanks for believing in me Ang.
I gotta tell ya, this is still only the beginning for me...OK...if you made it thru all that, you ROCK!
Now head on over to Stephanie's blog
