witticisms by Jess Witty

December 09, 2009

Seriously...

could this week be any better? {said in my best Chandler Bing voice} If I believed in good luck, I'd buy a lottery ticket. Or head to Vegas. Cause this week is Just. That. Good. Today is my first day as Papertrey Ink's Guest Designer for December and January. And can I just say... dude. I am a good secret keeper. Except when it comes to my mom. Cause I told her. And I'm not 100% sure that was allowed... but it's my mom. Isn't there some sort of Mom-exception-rule to exciting secrets like this? It went like this. I was at my very first ever Editorial Board meeting with Paper Crafts. With all the lovely Paper Crafts people that I love. And at that moment, I was driving in a mini-van with all those said people. I was dying. Dying. Because Nichole had sent me the email that morning and I wanted to tell *everyone* when I was supposed to tell *no one.* Normally, this is not an issue for me. I am a veritable vault with secrets. I was pregnant for 19 weeks before we told our families and 22 weeks before we told our church. This year, I showed up on a Sunday with a new baby and people said "Whose baby is that?" And I said, "Mine!" Seriously. I'm good with secrets. But not this time. So I called her. And I said... "Soooo... I got a good email this morning. You know... from someone important." And she said "Who?" And I said "Someone important." And she said "Who?" And I said "Did I tell you that I'm driving along with all the Paper Crafts girls?" And she said "Oh." But she knows me. So she said... "Was it Nichole?" And I said "Maybe." {That was me... keeping the secret. I know. My slyness is astonishing.} And whew. I felt better after that. And now it's here. And I am beyond happy to be joining the Papertrey team for a time. Do you know what might make you happy? Allllll this. Just click on the graphic to see all my Papertrey picks that are up for grabs. They're good, people. Goooood.

I hope you like everything, because I do. They're all my favorites. We're talking stamp sets, cardstock, ribbon, twine, buttons, and ink. And they could all be yours. This prize package has over a $100 value, so be sure to play along! You have until 7am EST, Friday, December 11th to leave a comment and be eligible to win. (Please play nice, only one comment per person.) One winner will be randomly selected and announced the same day, no later than noon EST. The winning announcement will be made on Papertrey's December Release Winners page.

In honor of my favorites, I thought I'd leave you with a little project using a few of them. Enjoy. One last note... thank you so much for all the sweet comments on yesterday's post. I so wanted to share that part of my life with you guys and I'm so glad that you came along with me.

Later, friends.

{Enjoy the Moment} card Stamps - Text Style, Mega Mixed Messages, Polka Dot Basics II Cardstock - Classic Kraft Ink - Vintage Cream, Rasperry Fizz, New Leaf Ribbon - New Leaf Bitty Dot; Cream Button Twine Button - Raspberry Fizz Embossing Powder - Filigree Detail (Clear)

Your post literally made me laugh out loud...the part about telling your mother. I firmly believe there should be a "mother clause" to any secret because while I can totally keep a secret...I don't think it counts by telling my mom!! ;-)
Congrats!!

Pat said...

After 2:00am, and I'm crying reading your Noelle post, especially your comment of 'there is no way that I could have ever done anything to be good enough to be given what I have.' Isn't it great to have a God who loves you that much!! Congratulations on the gift of Noelle, and for your PTI guest designer stint -- I'm looking forward to what you create and your witticisms. And, of course, I'd love to win your little PTI giveaway gifts, too!

So nice to meet you - not only are you a talented crafter, but you are an excellent writer... your story was so... me? I'm not a particularly good secret keeper, but I do play the "uh huh" and "maybe" game when there are others around - it made me laugh to read that I wasn't as sly as I thought I was. lol
Welcome aboard - from a fairly die-hard Papertrey fan.

Found you via Nicole's blog and I'm adding you to my google reader right now. Looking forward to seeing your PTI design team work!!!

(And telling moms totally does NOT count as spilling a secret. Neither do husbands. That's just a rule!)
