I Thank God ... For New Opportunities!

Hello and welcome to The Open Window today.

It is a truly exciting day as I have some fun & fabulous
things to share with you.

You may have heard me talk about my friend Tanner Bell
from time to time.  He is a 13 year old entrepreneur who loves
creating.  A little over a year ago he started a new blog & new
stamp line known as 'Mr. Cricut Crazy' and today, he starts
a new chapter with . . .

 Tanner reminds me a lot of ME when I was his age
as I would go door to door selling personalized
Christmas cards . . . of course, this was back in
the 70's, but the story is still so much the same.
To have an opportunity to encourage & promote his passion
with TBD is a real treat for me.

I am excited to be one of TBD's first guest designers
along with one of my besties, Savannah O'Gwynn and
in a sec, I have more fun news to share !

The newest releases from Tanner Bell Designs are all sentiments & have
so many wonderful possibilities.
For this card, I used 'Enjoying the Moments' and thought it was the
perfect sentiment to go with this beautiful felt embellishment
by Susan Winget for K&Company.

Here are both sets which are 
now available from TBD . . .

How would you like to WIN both of these
brand new sets ?
Just pop by the brand new Tanner Bell Designs Blog,
leave a little love & YOU just might win !

I've often talked about my love for retail marketing,
as it has been my career for over 30 years.  I am fortunate
to be able to do for a number of companies, big & small.
I've been working behind the scenes with Tanner for a several
months now as his marketing coordinator & today I am happy
to share that I will be working with Tanner Bell Designs
as the new Design Team Coordinator as well.

I love working with new businesses and although Tanner
has been in business for over a year, the launch of his new
blog & store website is a new beginning I am happy
to be a part of.

With the launch of his brand new site
{which looks totally fab, btw}
we are having our first ever

For all the details on how to submit, please make sure

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I hope you will take a moment to stop by Tanner's new blog
and leave a little love.  He is truly a great guy & I want
you to get to know him.
He is headed in such a fabulous NEW direction
and I couldn't be happier for him !

Morning Julie! I saw a post last night on fb... about an upcoming announcement :-) I hopped in bed with my Kindle and was so happy to see Tanner's update... he is growing up, huh? Way too fast! :-) It looks really great and I am going to stop by to congratulate him in a bit.
