DeNami Happenings - September 2012

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of what's going on out and about in the world of DeNami! Where the heck did August go...I swear it flew right past me, it didn't stop at go to collect $200.00 either! I hope you've enjoyed all the posts from last month. My favorite one...well, I'm sure you already have guessed - the post about meeting Nami, Gary & the boys! I had the time of my life and am still all giddy over it. It's something I will never forget. They were so wonderful and friendly, just heart warming people to meet.

Another instance of time just slipping by me is our little anniversary here on the Addict blog. As I was writing last Wednesday's post, it dawned on me that our first post was on July 19th, 2011! We missed our 1 year anniversary :(  Akkkk! Well, no worries, better late than never, right? I'm going to rack my little brain and come up with something special to still celebrate!

DeNami Addict

Stamp Shows: After a whirlwind schedule of a different state every weekend, DeNami Design is taking a MUCH needed break for most of the month of September. Bet their glad to sleep in their own beds again! But don't worry, they will be back out at the end of the month to bring us an overload of cuteness!

Getting back to last Wednesday's post, at the suggestion of 2 fellow DeNami fans, I posted pictures of my full stamp collection. That was a monumental task! Even with a collection that size my wish list is still a mile long! ;)  I have also added a linking tool at the bottom of the post so that you can share your collection with fellow DeNami Addicts. Just take pictures of your collection, upload them to Blogger,  Flicker, Splitcoast Stampers or some other site and then follow the easy instructions when you click on the "add your link" button on my post. I can't wait to see everyone's collections and how different they are from mine...what fun!
Have you heard that September is "NATIONAL STAMPING MONTH"?? How exciting for gals like us?!?! To celebrate this uber occurance, DeNami Design has announced a weekly challenge that's in addition to their regular monthly challenge. All of the details can be found right here.

Don't forget that this weekend is the DeNami Design blog hop...It's all about back to school. It starts September 9th and runs thru the 10th. Stop buy the DeNami blog on the 9th and you'll find the list of participants. Come join in all the fun and maybe find a few projects that will inspire you. Don't forget to leave comments along the way... 2 random winners will be picked for a DeNami Design gift certificate!

My new challenge right here on the Addict blog will be starting Monday the 10th. DeNami Design has been very generous in sponsoring my challenges with gift certificates...hope you'll join us for our new challenge!

Paulina has been out and about in blog land and loves posting DeNami cards she finds to DeNami's Pinterest boards along with their own creations...have you had a chance to stop by there or the ideas section on their website and see all the wonderful and inspiring projects?

And finally (insert much clapping, hahaha), I'd like to thank everyone that voted for me in the DeNami Biggest Fan contest. I didn't win (by a big landslide vote) but that's okay, I know in my heart that I LOVE DeNami Design and express it by running a blog, Facebook page and many other ways. I don't need a contest to tell me how big of a fan I really am. But seriously, I want to thank everyone for taking the time to vote for was M.U.C.H. appreciated. You gals really ROCK!!
Well that's it from me today everyone...have a fun and safe Holiday!
 Happy Labor Day everyone!
