Amazing Winner!

Heather Lea
Please contact me!
8 Days, People!
I was up till 3 a.m. my brain won't stop thinking!
Stay posted for tons of exciting announcements in the coming weeks!
In celebration of Earth Day!

If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter, floating a few feet above a field somewhere, people would come from everywhere to marvel at it. People would walk around it marvelling at its big pools of water,its little pools and the water flowing between the pools.People would marvel at the very thin layer of gas surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas. The people would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of the ball, and at the creatures in the water. The people would declare it as sacred because it was the only one, and they would protect it so that it would not hurt. The ball would be the greatest wonder known, and people would come to pray to it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and to wonder how it could be. People would love it, and defend it with their lives because they would somehow know that their lives, their own roundness, couldbe nothing without it. If theEarth were only a few feet in diameter."

Die Roller
You rolled 4 dice:
....and the dice total was 14!
I tried to save the picture of the dice, but it did not work!
Nettie - you ARE lucky number 14!!!
You must have a bit of a psychic side!?
Forgive me for not posting at 5. Aside from Unity - I am a mother of 4 boys! At times there will be days that a million and one things are scheduled. TODAY was one of them! Starting at 4 and ending just now...(9:47 p.m.) It dawned on me that I did not pick my winner just 6 minutes ago! I won't let it happen again! YIKES!
The winner for "Gift of the Week" will be picked from all my international gals!
WAIT TILL YOU SEE the adorable set up for grabs starting on Thursday evening!
Unity has clients in Singapore, The Netherlands, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia.
Our hope is to welcome more countries!
Unity is sure to be an added bonus for those that LOVE wood mounted stamps as well as un-mounted red rubber.

Unity's Cruising!

How fun was THAT?!
This afternoon I was interviewed on Diva Craft Lounge, what a splendid experience! Danielle and Rayme are THE BEST! They loved us SO MUCH they are taking us on a cruise - ok, not ME (personally) but our fun little handles & stamps are boarding the boat to hang with the DIVA'S. If you have some time to listen to the interview click here. I was on the show with Angie Lucas from Simple Scrapbooks as well - so you can hear some of the fun and fabulous things going on both at Unity and Simple Scrapbooks!
Danielle and Rayme inspired me today by reminding me how the Universe allows everything to fall into place when you follow through on doing what is right for you...The very first time that I had heard that said was from Ms. Oprah Winfrey herself. She said when you are doing what you love, "The Universe rises up to meet you............" I have found that to be so true in the mere 5 months that Unity has transpired. We have found fabulous artists, tremendous connections, magazines requesting product, hundreds of people tuning in each week to see what is happening at Unity, orders being placed by phenomenal locations, A+ reviews from some of the most prominent crafters in the industry, ultra talented & supportive Design team by my side, and more opportunity each day...I would say the good Lord above is definitely letting us know we are moving in the right direction!
Come back to visit tomorrow! Fun little "Gift of the Week" yet again!
