Default A little bit of bragging...

Hi Everyone ~

I just wanted to share a bit of news and haven't had time until now.

Our Decorated Diva site made a Holiday Shopping Guide in the Baltimore Sun. This was not a paid advertisment, but hand picked by a few reporters there.

I knew about it for a couple months, but didn't share it with anyone here besides Robert and Linda. Afraid of jinxing it, I guess.

I saw the small blurp online, but with the help of Robert and his father-in-law am anxiously awaiting the hard copies.

Anyways, for those of you who know my story, this is a big step...we were at the verge of shutting down just two short years ago.

~ Lisa

This is huge news and the fact that you didn't give up is what inspires everyone that knows a bit about the history of your company.

Funny you should mention that. A box containing the hard copies arrived today. I can see why you got so many orders! The ribbon watch bands and watch faces that can be mixed and matched are so cool.

I guess I better plan a trip to the post office.

Jean ~

Thanks for the words of encouragement! We have been very blessed the past couple years.

Robert ~

Hurry up and get to the Post Office!!! I can't wait to actually see what it looks like!!! The copy they have online is very small and no way to enlarge it.

Hmmm, if I was the cruel and devious type I'd draw this out and hold these hard copies ransom for some nice California wine.

But, considering that I don't like wine and you'd probably sick Linda on me anyway, I think I'll be able to get these to the post office ASAP.

Robert ~

You know I'll pay any ransom!!! Name your price!

On a serious note...how did they turn out?

Also, I want to thank you, in front of everyone, for all the support you have given me since we've "met". You'll never know how grateful I am to you and your family. urpleeye

Thank you, Lisa. I really appreciate that.

They used a good picture and gave you a great placement... top right corner of the right hand page. It was in the perfect spot even for those who just flipped through the pages.
