EVER have a day that is just amazing?

What a day!! I am down to 3 days left of my day job at the school. I will soon be able to work AMR ( All Moments Remembered) full time.

On my lunch break I came home to my phone ringing off the hook. Heather my other half of AMR called me to say " OMG TIM HOLTZ posted a comment on your blog" WOW!!! I ran for the computer and was amazed that Tim Holtz took a moment of his time to come leave a beautiful comment on my blog....

Here is his comment...

hey stacey - if i only knew how much you wanted to meet me it would have been ME searching for YOU at CHA! thanks for the cool words - i am completely humbled and looking forward to meeting you in person. i'm amazed at all that you are doing with your site, blog, and design team - here's to your creative journey ahead...-tim holtz

If you all only knew how that made my day! I don't often talk about my private life but lately I have been down. My father in law is dieing from ALS ( Lou Gehrigs disease) and it has been such a sad time for all of us. I wont go into details but what a nice brightening to my day to see THE TIM HOLTZ left a message to me!! I am still smiling!!

When I started my message board 11 weeks ago the tech support said I had more then enough space on there. They said in a year to let them know if I needed a little more. 11 weeks later my MB was crashing all evening from overload of members! AMAZING!! We had Julie an incredible Designer from Clear Sraps on for our scrap chat hour tonight. She gave incredible advice to getting started on an acrylic album. She was sooo sweet to answer so many questions for one hour. Clear Scraps should be proud of her as she sure knows how to promote their product!! Thank you Julie for a fun evening on the message board. Julie is also a regular member now on the MB so she is around often to answer acrylic questions!!!

Okay so one more amazing thing.... My April kit is not even in the office yet and it is SOLD OUT!!! We do have a couple of the add on kits for April but that is it. We had added a whole lot more to April and still sold out. I appreciate all of you who have bought the monthly kit subscription!! THANK YOU for your support. If you are thinking you want a May kit order soon before they are sold out too. You need to get at least a 3 month subscription to sign up now. KEEP your EYES On this blog as I will be soon telling you of AMAZING new guest designers coming out way. We are now booked with amazing talent through August. This month we have the amazing Karla Dudley. I will be featuring her on my blog this next week. Be sure to check back. I am keeping the designers as big surprises for all of you each month!!

Have an amazing rest of the week! I love amazing days like today and look forward to the rest of the week.
HUGE SMILES,
Stacey

Number of words in Stacey's post: 561. Number of times she used the word "amazing" in some form: 10. Value of warm fuzzy feelings created by her exuberance: Priceless!

You're one "amazing" lady, Stacey! I will be thinking of you on Friday afternoon at 3 pm as you walk out of that school!

I am sorry to hear about your FIL. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm happy to hear that your site is doing wonderfully well. Sold out kits already! Awesome. Of course you have a fabulous design team and a great leader assisting you. How cool about TH commenting. I hope you do get to meet him IRL soon!
