yes, lots going on in the world of an Orange Girl!
well let me first mention that YESTERDAY, we posted our Dollie Call! we are looking for our next Dollies for the July-December term, and holy wowza, we're ALREADY getting applications! there are some seriously ENTHUSIASTIC people looking to get craft in the Dollhouse, and it makes us SO happy!
HERE'S THE CALL, and the deadline for applications is Tuesday, May 25th - not much time, so GET ON IT! :)
the May challenges have kicked off over there, and all our April winners have been announced, so drop by and check out the new Color Challenge, or the new Elements Challenge, or the new Sketch Challenge. ANNNND, since it's THURSDAY, that means the TRIFECTA ingredients have all been revealed and you are welcome to play!
we have also said goodbye to our lovely April Guest Dollie, Lizzie, who ROCKED the challenges for her month! we're going to miss her in the Dollhouse, but we KNOW we'll be seeing her all over the blogosphere and some of the crafty groups to which we belong. :)
and we welcome VEL, our May Guest Design Dollie, who's already off to a kickin' start, and you're gonna LOVE what you see from her over the next four weeks!
next, PLEASE come on over to the Envious blog to vote for an April winner! the Alice in Wonderland collage was a HUGE hit, and the projects submitted were INCREDIBLE! COME AND CAST YOUR VOTE (and i'm quite certain there will be much oohing and ahhing whilst you peruse the submissions!). tomorrow, our new challenge will be posted, and i can't WAIT to show you all my first Envious creation! (our May collage is SERIOUSLY hot!)
and today, i have a leedle project to show ya... our new SOME ODD GIRL challenge has been announced, and some winners from our last Stash Challenge! the theme for this challenge, which lasts two weeks (projects due by Wednesday, May 19th at midnight EST), is THE EIGHTIES! oh, SO my era! still in love with the music, the movies, and much of the fashion (though if you don a mullet, i'm afraid you're not invited to tea)... i couldn't resist the urge to quote the theme song (and i can't tell you how much i STILL love Simple Minds) of one of THE best movies from the eighties, The Breakfast Club (rest in peace mister John Hughes)!
here's Sweet Kaylee:

do you DIG her neon green tulle bustle? do you REMEMBER when girls wore crinolines both under AND over their clothes? :) i, uh, still have mine.
okay, so check out what the rest of the Odd Girls have done with this challenge - it might not SOUND like an easy task, but there's LOADS of yummy eighties inspiration to be found HERE, and we hope you'll play along to win two Some Odd Girl digis of your choice!
i'm playing along with the challenge at Moxie Fab World (i LOVED the colours of the bag and they totally dictated the background for this card).
hope the week's going great for all of you - yesterday was Cinco de Mayo and we went out for dinner with my MIL, to celebrate Mother's Day a bit early. apparently hubbin is looking for SLIPPERS for me, because i killed my last pair and am in desperate need. :) tonight, i think i need to get ahead with some of the Dollies challenges, and maybe play along with some of the birthday fun in my Cafe Mom group. CIAO, CHICKENS!
