a little red star / by jen geigley

I have some big news! And I still can't believe it.

I'm a Fashionista at ScrapInStyleTV! Which means I will be part of the most rocking scrapbook design team on the planet, and have a little red star next to my name. If you haven't checked out SIStv before, it's definitely the go-to place to find lots of inspiration and some really cool, talented people.

I have looked up to so many of the Fashionistas for a long time and never, ever dreamed I'd be part of the team.

So thank you, JJ - a.k.a. 'Big Sis' - for taking a chance on me. It's an honor.

SIStv is one of those places where there is just a real, genuine camaraderie.

As cheeseball as it may sound, I have made so many amazing friends through SIS since I joined in 2007.

Sure, we have a common bond through our love of a hobby.

And we can have in-depth discussions about things like paper manufacturers, stickers and adhesive.

But we also know the names of each others' spouses and kids ... and so much more. We laugh, we joke, we listen ... and laugh some more. No holding back.

As you may remember from a previous post, I was lucky enough get the opportunity to hang out with a bunch of my SISters in June. Like, in real life. Sure, we met on the internet. But when we were finally all together in the same room, you would have sworn that we had grown up together. (Photo jacked from the lovely Mandi.)

We had such a great time that we are already planning another get-together next month at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago. So excited for that! Because it's truly a rare thing when you connect with other women from all over the place (and I mean all over the place ... Sandy is from Canada, Danielle is in Mexico) but have so much fun together that everyone makes travel plans to meet, just to see all of those wonderful faces in person again. I kind of love that.

So here's to my SISters. My new and old Fashionista pals. And to new adventures down the road. Much love.
