Pinch me PLEASE!

Is it really true ...? Did Heidi Swapp really call me today and tell me that I was chosen as the winner of Creative Escape's Treasure Hunt for a teacher!? The Yahoo! message boards seem to reflect that, so I must not be dreaming!

Can I just say that I am in a total state of shock and awe ... I guess there will be a CE seat up for the next person on the waiting list!

Yeah, I got the call this afternoon .. the phone line cut out when the person said who she was, so I had to ask her to say it again ... I think I was polite about it ...?

'Cuz, gee, it was the one and only Heidi Swapp calling ME to tell me that I had WON! Instead of being speechless, I think I rambled, but I can't tell you for sure because it was all a blur...

I am so honored and incredibly excited. I knew I must have been in good company as far as applicants went, so it is amazing to be chosen. I hope to create a fabulous project that everyone will enjoy and learn something from!

And a HUGE thanks to Randy, Karen and the gang at The Red Bee for sponsoring me ... I really appreciate it!

But, um, seriously, is someone gonna pinch me soon? I mean, really, do I get to teach along side Heidi, Jenni Bowlin, Tim Holtz, Kolette Hall? Simply amazing ... Visit www.creativeescapeaz.com for more details!

Jessica, I don't think they could have choosen a better person. You have the passion and determination to do this. You give your students the flexability to make the project their own, while focusing on the technics. You are the perfect person!! Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp had to start somewhere too and we all will be sitting around someday bragging that we know you too. Congratulations, Jodie
