Our New Design Team Coordinator and September Kit Info

Hey there Tulip fans! I hope you all are having a GREAT weekend with your friends and family. After the torrential downpours of rain we've had lately, we actually have a beautiful, sunny, not-too-hot day here in Austin. Of course my daughter wants to go see "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs", but hey, at least it's family time!

Our New Design Team Coordinator!

As you know, I announced our new Tulip Girls on the 24th, but mysteriously, there was no mention of our new Design Team Coordinator. ;-) Well, that's because our new DTC deserves her own special day, dontcha think? Our previous DTC, Holly Hanks, has left Label Tulip after a year and a half to pursue some of her other interests, but I am pleased to announce that our *new* DTC is none other than Ms Julie Fei-Fan Balzer! I am sooooo excited and proud to have Julie as our new Coordinator, she's just the perfect fit. Julie hails from NYC and is one busy lady -- check out her bio to read about all the amazing projects she's involved with on a daily basis. Due to our mutual love of the theater, arts, and scrapbooking, it makes me sad that we don't live closer because I know we'd be hanging out all the time! I have no idea how she finds time to scrap, but her designs are so edgy, original, and gorgeous. Julie has definitely earned this title and I hope all will give her a warm welcome as she "moves up" in the Label Tulip team. I am truly honored that she has accepted the position and am so lucky to have her!

Status on Kit Shipping
I also wanted to take a moment to update you on the September kits. Normally, as our schedule states, we ship anywhere from the 20th-24th of each month. Well gals, I have to tell you, out of *everything* that I have learned in the past month, billing and shipping are by far the hardest part of running Label Tulip. The kits will be shipped out no later than Monday (some are on their way out the door right now) and should arrive by the end of the week for sure. I really appreciate your patience and understanding during this crazy first month of owning Label Tulip. I want you to know I've had several moments where I've sat in front of the computer and just cried out of frustration; I feel so bad that the kits are late because I pride myself in delivering the highest quality merchandise in the highest quality way. I promise next month everything will be running smooth as buttah and your kits will be shipped during normal shipping dates. If you have any questions at all, you are always more than welcome to email me at

In closing I'd like to say that the October merchandise has begun to arrive and you all are going to be so THRILLED at what I have in store for you. There are 4, yes 4, different paper vendors in the main kit and the Etsy Extra has been handmade *especially* for our kit. And wait til you see the Card Kit that Dani is putting together -- to die for! It's so hard to keep the secret! I hope you all have a great weekend.
