A Season to Celebrate


weekly rally graphic

First off, a big congrats to our winner of the “Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaways” yesterday: Linda Hays!  We thank each and every one of you who commented and hope you have a very merry Christmas!  (If you didn’t win… you know we like to host contests from time to time, so keep checking in.)

Today the ‘Roo Crew is wrapping up the last of our 2012 orders and getting the studio in tip top shape so when we come back in 2013 (can you believe it?!) we’ll be ready to take the busy-season-bull by the horns.  We’ve had such a whirlwind of year and it flew by so quickly it rather makes my head spin just to think back on it…

  • Earlier this year, The Green Kangaroo hopped across the street, making 126 West Chatham our new home!
  • Katie and Monica each bought a new house.
  • ‘Roos went-a-traveling: Kristen to Chicago and Lori to Aruba, each with their hubbies, of course!
  • My fella and I tied the knot in September, followed by a trip to the Dominican!
  • Between Designs celebrated a first birthday!
  • The ‘Roo Crew rocked Movember as “The Fu Manroos.”
  • Monica and her man said their vows in November and then welcomed new puppy, Mishu, into their home!
  • The Green Kangaroo introduced some new goodies [custom stamps, round corners, and more] on top of a dozen new 2012 designs.

We’ve got lots in store for the new year as well… new ink colors, maybe a few paper surprises, and new blog features!  In fact, to help us bring you the very best in 2013, we’d love for you to take a moment to fill out this simple survey.

TGK will be closed for the next several days so that we can all spend time with our friends and family.  We wish all of you the very merriest of holidays!!!
