Stamp of Approval coming soon

I’m pinching myself.

I have been dreaming about Stamp of Approval for over a year and it’s finally here.  WOOOOOT!

This dream has come true for me through the help, support and genius of several super duper important people (Suzi, Kelly, Maureen, Em…not to mention my family who listen to me talk incessently about this and watch as packages pile up around us…and the Dream Team and the companies I collaborated with…and…well, this isn’t an Emmy acceptance speech.  I could go on.  I won’t.).

I’m blessed to have amazing and SMART and supportive people in my life to help me bring this collection to you.

Until the other day, this was a dream and a leap of faith and I wasn’t sure how it would go over.  I thought many of you would like the idea and see the value.

What I wasn’t prepared for was over 2500 people on the wait list.

My heart beats a little faster just typing that.

WOW.  25 HUNDRED people?  (I have to pause for a second to catch my breath on that….) are interested in this collection that I’ve poured my heart and soul into over the past 6 months?  You gotta be kidding me.

With that being said, I know that not all 2500 will purchase.  The demand is going to be higher than we expected, though.  This is a beta run and supplies are extremely limited, so all I can say is that we tried to get this right.  We will see next week!

We’ll do our best to keep growing our numbers for future boxes!  Yes, future boxes.  You can expect one every quarter.  YIPPEEE!  In fact, our Holiday box is just about set already.  Pretty awesome, huh?

In today’s video, I do a bit more talking (who am I kidding?  A LOT MORE), but there’s a lot I wanted to tell you…so if you are planning on scooping up this box next week, the details are in this video.  AND you’ll get peeks of some of the products in this collection.

Stamp of Approval Sneak Peek 4

What do you think of what you see so far?  These spirograph-type flowers are so stinkin’ cute…I can hardly stand it.  They come from a whole set of stamps (20 in all) which lend themselves to amazing creativity.  Every DT sample I’ve seen so far has been so different from the others.

Can you guess which company designed the flowers in this set?
