Just THREE more weeks to turn in your submissions

I am so thrilled about all the beautiful submissions coming in and that have come in, in the past.
Just wanted to send out a reminder that you have exactly THREE weeks to turn in your submissions. The ending date is May 15th by midnight.
I will be calling the designers that are chosen on June 1st. Look for a 510 area code. :) Those chosen will need to be ready, because your first set of assigments will be to create for CHA, Florida with all our new lines that we are working on.

Did you turn in your submission a long time ago? Don't worry, I still have them, and am still looking through them again, but send a plug to yourself. Just reply here and tell me to give YOUR submission another really good peak!! :) That'll tell me that you are still really interested!!

CHA, Summer is just around the corner and we are working really hard on these next lines. They are coming out really fun!!
There will be a lot of MLS girls at CHA!! We are getting a condo and planning to do some really fun things.
Going to CHA with me is Erin Yamabe, Molly Peckham, Tanisha Long, Norma Kennedy, Pattie Beltran, and Helen Chu!
We hope that you will come and visit us.
