I cannot believe it...what a morning this has been!!! I am just shaking!!! I got up this morning and did usual blog surfing before I hit the books. I looked at my own blog and saw that alot of people were coming from Donna Salazar's blog to mine and could not figure out why so I had to go take a look. OMG ...I could not believe my eyes...she had just announced her Guest Design Team and my name was there. I immediately thought she had made a mistake because I had not applied. I had seen the call but didn't apply because there was no way I could compete with the talented ladies that would be trying for that amazing team. So I emailed Donna and I waited all morning( I know there is a huge time difference and she was probably snuggled down, sound asleep in her bed while I was here shaking to pieces and feeling like I might throw up, continiously hitting refresh on my inbox, waiting for her to tell me it was a mistake)So I waited and waited...ate a little lunch and came back to the inbox again...still no Donna!!Then...............the phone rang.......it was a strange number.........I said "hello" and a lady asked for Sandi...........she then said she was Donna Salazar and it wasn't a mistake......omg...I thought my heart was going to come out of my body and I know I sounded like such a dork! I had recently applied for the GCD call and they had forwarded 30+ applications to Donna for her DT call and she choose 2 and one of those was MINE!!!! This whole thing caught me totally off guard but boy was it ever good! When you apply for a DT call there is always the little bit of hope they will pick you and always the little bit of disappointment when they don't....but this whole thing is what you would call TOTAL SURPRISE!! Yipee...can't wait! I am in awe to be chosen amongst these super talented ladies! Here they are:
