This is the week!

Hello my friends! So I just spent an hour writing this post, and then POOF...it disappeared. Love that. I debated on coming back to it later but decided you all needed to hear the good news and you needed to start meeting our amazing DT! So here I go again!!!

So as nervous as I am to post this, here goes...our website is suppose to be done tomorrow (May 5th) which means we will go LIVE on Friday, May 7th!!!!! Holy cow, I don't know whether to hold my breath or pee my pants! Chances are I'll probably do a bit of both. I am also sooooo super excited to start introducing you to our amazing design team! I was hoping to do this on our new blog but I don't want to make you wait any longer, so show you on my blog I must! I am also going to show you a few sneaks of what they have done with our first kit, Fist Midnight Run. To make this countdown even MORE exciting I am going to give away an EXCLUSIVE Midnight Rooster stamp from First Midnight Run! The amazing Michele, from Purple Onion Designs is designing and making our beautiful stamps every month, you totally need to go check her out! So be sure to leave us a comment and we will choose a winner each day until our big reveal on Friday!

The first amazing girl I'd like to introduce you to is the crazy fab Charity Hassel!

Hi everyone! My name is Charity. I am in my mid-30s. I've been married to my husband, Brian for almost 8 years. We have to darling children- Alexander 5yrs and Audrey 3yrs. I am a full-time stay at home mom and a part-time RN (only one day a week). Most days you can find me cleaning house, playing with the kids, and scrapping. Non-paper addictions include chocolate covered popcorn, musicals and spending time with my family. I began scrapbooking about 7-8 years ago but became seriously addicted about 6 years ago. I also love cardmaking and other paper crafts. My style varies somewhat depending on the photo, my mood or the products I work with. Finding new ways to use product is always a fun challenge for me. I hope to encourage and inspire those around me to enjoy creating, capture their memories and have fun!



The next rockin girly for you to meet is Emily Spahn... check her out!


Hi! I'm Emily Spahn. I'm so excited to be a part of the first ever Midnight Rooster Design Team! I am a mom, a wife, a music-teacher, a wannabe photographer, and, of course, a scrapbooker! I live in Illinois, but I'm a Wisconsin girl at heart! :) I spend my days teaching general music to middle school students. I spend my evenings with my beautiful one-year old Mirielle. My husband Justin is an accountant, and we have a crazy boxer named Maddie. I have a pretty amazing life, if I say so myself!

I started scrapbooking in about fifth grade, when I made a meticulously crafted page using white typing paper as my background and a hand-drawn crayon title. It was spectacular. I've been hooked every since! I started to scrap more seriously about five years ago. Since then I've been lucky enough to have been on a number of design teams and to have been published in magazines like Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks, Etc., and Scrapbook Trends. My favorite products include patterned paper, kraft cardstock, and alphabet stickers. In fact, I'm pretty sure I could get rid of everything else in my scrap space and create with just those three items!

When I'm not scrapping...or teaching...or parenting...I enjoy writing, reading, music, and photography. I love mac and cheese, Ingrid Michaelson, hoodie sweatshirts, Facebook, Dr. Pepper, indie movies, John Irving novels, iTunes, sneakers, Regina Spektor, sunflowers, Whole Foods, Tumblr, little notebooks, Lake Michigan, crazy socks, Starbucks chai tea lattes, Mark Ruffalo, lip gloss, BabyGap, the color yellow, Wisconsin Badger Football, my family, my friends, and this hobby. And really so much more. ;) Thanks to Midnight Rooster for the experience!



So there ya go! The first of 8 amazing girls to meet! Be sure to check in tomorrow to meet 2 more totally talented ladies! And don't forget to leave us a comment today for you chance to win one our exclusive stamps from our first kit!

peace~love~and countdowns!
