Happy New Year!

Wishing you all a wonderful and joyous new year! Scrapdango turns two years old in February. This is an exciting time for us! We will send out our 24th kit this month! Wow! What a ride it has been. I am so thankful to have this opportunity to work in the wonderful world of scrapbooking. I had no idea when I started this venture whether it would be successful, whether I could transfer my business skills to a new industry, whether I could find my way in a very competitive market. I started Scrapdango on a shoestring budget and there were times when money was so tight, I wondered if I would have to throw in the towel. Yet, I hung in there because I believed I had the right idea - bring the scrapbooking community the finest coordinated products and assure our kits are functional and motivational and are what real scrapbookers need and use. I want our customers to feel like it is Christmas every month of the year! The scrapbooking community is beginning to recognize Scrapdango and now that we are preparing to pass our 2 year mark, it is apparent that we are here to stay. Simple Scrapbooks Magazine featured Scrapdango in Dec/Jan issue that just came out. You can see that in the Club section of the magazine. I want to thank all those who have contributed to Scrapdango's success. First off, I want to thank Dana DiGennaro. When she came on as a designer last year, she quickly took on a greater role and showed her interest and skill in kit designing. She is on top of the market and knows what hot and what's not. I couldn't have done it without her. I also want to thank our whole amazing Design Team and those designers that contributed last year also. I have had such an incredible opportunity to work with some talented artists who are inspiring! I want to thank Terri Bradbury for her Admin support on our new Forum over the last several months. That would be an unrealized dream without her! And thankyou to all our Scrapdango members and supporters!

We have some very special kits planned in celebration of our anniversary. Here are the Sugar and Spice Kits for January...

Featuring none other than Cosmo Cricket - Hey Sugar!

Featuring the hard to find Sonburn - Urban School Daze!

Our Design Team has done an incredible job with these kits. I was so motivated by them I even got some scrapping done. Please check out our Designs at Scrapdango Design Gallery.
