Awards!!! Lots of Awards!!!

In non-scrappy related news, I thought I'd share a little bit about what I do.

As some of you already know, I am the director of editorial and design for a custom publishing and promotion company that produces print and online publications for organizations around the world wanting to reach affluent and sophisticated consumers (that's a mouthful!). We create award-winning turn-key magazines, coffee table books, destination guides and websites. Our clients include American Eagle Airlines, TACA Airlines, Carnival Center for the Performing Arts, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, Bermuda Hotel Association, Sint Maarten Hospitality and Trade Association, British Virgin Islands Chamber of Commerce and Hotel Association, U.S. Virgin Islands Hotel Association, Los Cabos Hotel Association, De Palm Tours Aruba and Kiawah Island Resorts.

Recently, we were honored with MANY (14, to be exact) national and statewide awards for general excellence, as well as design and editorial excellence from three well-respected organizations across the country. We received the top prize (Charlie Award) for Best Bilingual Magazine for Explore, TACA airlines’ monthly in-flight magazine, from the Florida Magazine Association. Isn't that exciting!

So, yes, I am stressed and frustrated and about to kill a few people because of my work, BUT I am also VERY proud of what we've accomplished and I'm honored to work with such a talented team. :-)

I'll share some scrappy goodness with you soon — including some cute cards I made last weekend at a Card Workshop that my friends Barb and our Stampin' Up rep, Esther, put together.

Also, I'M SO EXCITED because this weekend is my birthday crop. On Sunday, my scrappy friends are coming to scrap with me all day long! Yeah! (Yes, I know my birthday isn't till October, but this was the best day for all of us—talk about a busy group of gals!). LOL!

Happy Friday!!!

Which custom publishing company do you work for? Have they put out a press release about the awards? If so, we'd love to feature it as Custom Publishing News
