The FALL Call that's got it ALL....

...Talk about AMAZING!!!

I can't even tell you how much talent we've been lucky enough to witness these past few days during our FALL GARDENER CALL.

First and foremost, a heartfelt, sincere, and resounding THANK YOU to all who applied. As I'm sure you can imagine, these things are never easy, but our followers, customers and friends make it even harder to come to these decisions. There was SO much creativity, fresh takes on TGF stamps, and overwhelming enthusiasm in your applications and we want you ALL to know how much we appreciate that. Please know that it is NEVER long before the next call and that you should ALL be extremely proud of your submissions. With only four spots open and so much awesomeness, the choice is just so hard. Again, we thank ALL of you, because we know we wouldn't be here without you.

That being said, I am BURSTING with excitement, pride, and awe to introduce to you our FOUR NEW FALL GARDENERS. They will begin their TGF Journey as of October 1st and we'll be posting their bios/ etc. later on in the month, but for now, please help me welcome:
Sandra MacLean

I am SO excited about this group of women and am super pumped about the months ahead.

Again, while we will be formally introducing them to you later in the month, I'd like to share a card from each of these ladies that has caught my eye and surely will grab your attention!

Have a Happy Wednesday, everyone and be sure to check back today or tomorrow for the Creative Team call results ;) Thanks!
