Goodbyes and Hellos!

Well, as promised, we have some very fun things going on in PMS land and we have fun news today! Today we are introducing our new design team!

Oh design team call made making these decisions extremely difficult as there was talent ABOUND sent to the submission email. If you were not selected, please dont feel like you were not capable because the fact of the matter is, there was SO much talent, it was really hard to choose. PMS has a team of diversity, different styles and ways they use stamps, so all of these things were taken into consideration when chosing the team. Still, i feel like we really did get a GREAT crop of new girls!

Having some new team members however, isnt without it's saddness. We are saying goodbye to 3 of our current team members. We have already said goodbye to Melyssa as you may remember, but we are also saying goodbye to Gabby Arrizza, Dawn Knight and Amber Kroening. We hope that these marvelously talented ladies wont be stangers to us at PMS!

Here are some cards from our talented ladies leaving us...

But as we said, we have some new girls. And in our very painstaking decision making, we could not choose just 4 new ladies, so we have 7! Thats right, 7 new wonderful talented ladies to add to our brood! And we'll have a guest designer each month. Oh i am just giddy! I'm sure these ladies are too!

SO, without much ado... here is our newest team members!

And the new team is getting a little fashion show of their own!

Now go leave some love for our leaving and newest team members!!!!

What a long and crazy month it's been!

It's June 23rd?! WHAT!? It seems like just yesterday I was leaving for my vacation on May 29th.
That was a month ago! And while I was only gone for about 2 weeks (a little longer than anticipated due to driving across the country with a 4 year old and a 20 month old!)

I want to sincerely apologize for how behind the company has been this month.
We are now totally caught up! It seemed like everyday (though i say we, it's just me) i tried to make a bigger dent in the to do, and the catch up list, and suddenly i would look at the clock and say, how it is time for bed already?! Of course having 2 little ones and a hubby who works about 12 hours a day 6 days a week in the summer didnt help the catch up plan either.
So i really do apologize!

On a more fun note, now that everything is caught up, and the new PMS office is put together (ok, it's still partially in shambles, but we're working on it!)
The new DT is working with the current DT (we'll announce our new team on the 1st)

So what's next?! Well, my birthday is this weekend! So what am i going to do?
I'm going to offer a sale! Thats right! It's a 10% discount site wide!
You can even use it on the Celestial Possibilities makeup kit which is already $10 off it's retail price! This sale will go from now thru June 27th. Use the code JUNESAVE10 in your cart.
Whats more, i'm even going to let you use this code with other sale codes!

And now, just because i haven't posted any pretties for you to see on the blog in a bit, just a few wonderful creations from the awesome Paper Makeup Artists!

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
