... well it is a big surprise to me that i have been able to stay up til MIDNIGHT tonight. usually by this time, the baby is saying "dude, we need to be in bed and asleep" - ahh the joys of being almost 7 months pregnant! but we planned ahead today and i took a nap to get me to now. because i have two things to announce - guess who is 30 now on march 4th? it is DEB! it is hard to believe my little sis is 30 (though she has been harassing me about being 30 for the last 2 years. in honor of her BD, i made her this LO tonight wishing her a happy 30!

Happy Birthday MAY MAY!

lots of easy to do ideas including drawing on a transparency and making transparency flowers!

and that brings me to our second announcement - deb and i are proud to announce our very first MAYA ROAD 2006 JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME CONTEST!!! we are super super excited about this b/c the wonderful people at SBA magazine have agreed to help us judge this contest!

if you want to find out more about it, click here:

we are very excited about this contest. i do have a couple of comments to make on this contest - we really really wish we could open this contest up to everyone who loves to use our stuff but after a long long discussion with our legal counsel, we cannot due to the contest rules in different countries. so right now, we can offer this contest for the US and Canada residents but not including Puerto Rico or Quebec. there are just a lot of legal ramifications which we cannot get through in order to open this up to more people.

we are also excited about this contest b/c we really want to see how people interpret "journey of a lifetime" - our requirements for using Maya Road products is small - only 10-15% of your total project (heck my LO i posted here would qualify but since i am an immediate family member of MR i can't enter) - but again, it is your interpretation of YOUR journey so tell us all about it.

and we want to thank everyone who has supported us along the way - many many people have come up to us and said " we remember back in 2004 when you were this super tiny company with about 20 sets of fibers and 20 sets of embellishments and LOOK AT YOU NOW" - yeah look at us now - with close to 300 items in our inventory and more to come. we just want to take it all in and say thank you!!!

and to all the pubsters who were trying to guess which company this annoucement was for, well i hope that you are not disappointed it is us - Maya Road - Caroline and Deb . smaller companies can be capable of BIG things - b/c we are all small once.

good night!
