June 1 means one group of girls from Pezzy’s Playgroup (our DT) left and a new one came in – today will be their first PDD posting day!  Cheryl, Gretchen and Julia have done a FABULOUS job and i am looking forward to Erika, Anita and victoria starting their *official* term – i say official because they have already been active with us 🙂  BE SURE to check out their blogs in the link list to the left and give them a big welcome!

I also have another announcement – it was so hard to let these girls go so i decided to ask one to stay – thank goodness Cheryl has agreed to continue with us for a bit longer!!  Cheryl has done a great job of really embracing the products in the store and passing on her newfound love to her readers.  i myself have learned some things from Cheryl.  if you HAVE NOT checked out her blog i encourage you to do so!
