impressed!

just in case there was any question ever about how cool DONNA is…
she emailed me these photos tonight in an email with the subject line reading “i made an album from your garbage!”…

these boxes are what the silhouettes come packaged in…and i think a few more things… most people don’t see what the individual pieces come packaged in.. but those of you who own stores can attest to the fact that my product comes with an OVERKILL of packaging! well, thanks to miss donna, we can all open our minds to the possibilites!!!!!!
donna, you rock…

    Heidi, DONNA IS SO ON TARGET! There is NO WAY that I would ever throw away packaging like that… I totally keep stuff like that ALL THE TIME until I can figure out what to make out of it. *GO DONNA, GO DONNA!* (raising the roof w/hands) ๐Ÿ˜€

    I do say Donna rocked the house on this one. GO DONNA! Go Donna! Can’t beat creativity. Then again, who could throw anything with HS on it. I can’t!

    Too cool! That donna is just so clever. Now LSS are going to see all sorts of crazy scrappers digging through their dumpsters to get “garbage!” Thanks for sharing.

    I have some saved from our last order. Can’t wait to try it. I just have to say that your line has sold in record time in my store. I haven’t even had to advertise that it is here. Once one person sees it more and more come to snatch it up. I have seen some great layouts using it too. Thanks for your great pricing as well. That is what everyone has commented on….all this for only ….. what a deal!

    I wouldn’t expect anything less from the amazing Donna Downey. That girl can alter freakin’ ANYTHING she gets her hand on!

    I am laughing my head off, my husband wants to know what is so funny. I just said, Oh just Donna honey, just Donna.
    Now when the girls unpack my stock for my store I will be telling them not to throw anything away till I go through it. I have an order coming this week of your stuff Heidi, so I can’t wait.

    Those photos are *so* Donna! She totally rocks, and I love that she shared the album made from “junk” with you – and by extension, all of us! I haven’t done anything that creative with your packaging, but I do have plans for those little boxes your chipboard letters come in!! ๐Ÿ™‚
