The new blog is up.  You can see it here.  Kimber has been active in getting the DT member’s blog links up as well as setting up photo albums for all of our DT members. 

This does not mean you have to stop visiting The Soup Bowl every once in a while (crying, sobbing, weeping).  It just means all JB Soup company info, announcements, new product peeks and DT member work will be displayed on the Bean Talk blog now. 



And the excitement continues….

Good Sunday Morning…this is the day…

I can see lots of you are looking for this announcement.  I’m very excited about this but I must tell you it was a very difficult decision.  I feel like the bachelor and I’m sorry that I can’t give everyone a rose.  The team was picked based on design, experience and the ability to market JB Soup.  There were so many great applications.  I’ve visited many blogs and galleries in the last week just to get a feel for people.  Thank you everyone who submitted.  It’s been very rewarding for me to have so many people apply…so many talented people.  I was also thrilled to see numerous international applications.  The internet is an amazing thing.

If you did not make the team this time, we will be doing another call in 6 months.   Please do not get discouraged this time around. 

So, without further ado…




The guest designers will be e-mailed this week to discuss their participation. 

Thanks again ladies for applying!  I am completely blown away by the responses and the awesome support from all of you!

Booth number 2712…I’m there baby!  Woo Hoo!

For those of you that don’t know…CHA stands for Craft and Hobby Association.  They have 2 large trade shows twice a year.  I’m excited to announce that I’m registered to attend the January show.  It turns out the the “New Exhibitors” will be on the main floor in 2009 (they used to be downstairs – separate from the rest of the show).  I’m excited about that!

Now, does anyone know anything about trade shows???   :-{

UPDATE: Thankyou all for your great comments and support!  Most of you know this was my first big goal and I’m thrilled to have reached it!
