Those with the highest in total purchases and the highest workshop orders from July 1, 2011 (when SU year begins) through the January 31, 2012 will receive a special email notice.

She is just the sweetest and I'm sure we all will have a memorable workshop w)ith her! The Occasion Mini is just around the corner (Jan. 4th ) and holding a workshop is a great way to break up the hum-drum of winter in the Midwest!
