A Way to Say Thanks - The Zazzle Edition

At 11:37am MT, on Saturday April 30th, Cripple Creek Barbeque officially became a funded project on Kickstarter. Not only did we reach our goal, but we exceeded it. There were a fair share of backers who are strangers to us. But most of our support came from family and friends that worked tirelessly, especially in the final days, to promote us with blogs, tweets, and Facebook posts, who drumed up pledges from friends near and far, and who virtually held our hands and offered us shoulders to lean on when we doubted ourselves the most.

I've found it hard to say anything but 'thank you' repeatedly because I've truly been at a loss for words. I don't think the gratitude I feel for all of the people involved in this will ever be fully known because the words I need to say escape me now. I don't know how to pay everyone back for all they've done. I hope this will help.

I have many members of my Zazzle family who stepped up to the plate, took the reins, and ran with this dream of ours. They took ownership of this food truck, as we hoped they would. Rather than saying "you can do it" they started saying "we can do it." My Zazzle family became part of the CCB family. And they will forever be a part of our family. I wanted to do a quick promotional thank you to them. I ask you to please take a look at what my wonderfully talented friends have to offer on Zazzle. These are artists and designers that deserve all the luck and love in the world. we go!

I know there were other Zazzlers that came and joined the fun by pledging, and I'm sorry for not linking them up here. They are people that I greatly appreciate, I'm just unfamiliar with their shops. If you know of other Zazzlers that pledged, or you are one of them, PLEASE add links to your shops in the comments so we can get your names out there! And if I forgot anyone - please accept my sincere apologies. My mind is still spinning from the last 24 hours.

Thank you to my Zazzle family, my Depeche Mode family, my longtime friends, my family, and everyone who helped us during these last 90 days. Your love and support has carried us through the roller coaster of a lifetime. You will never be forgotten.

A Few of my Favorite Things - The GiftsBonanza Edition

There is a designer on Zazzle that not only works hard to create great products for their own shop, but they are also tireless promoters for fellow Zazzlers. Between blogs and Squidoo lens' that feature different artists and products, there is never a dull moment from GiftsBonanza. As a few of my products have been featured from GiftsBonanza, I thought I would return the favor by promoting some of my favorite designs from this Zazzle shop.

Visit GiftsBonanza ~ you are sure to find something to tickle your fancy!

A Few of my Favorite Things - My Friend Heather Edition

I have a friend - a very good friend, ok, a best friend, named Heather. She is one of the greatest people I've ever known. She has a few shops on Zazzle, but doesn't get a lot of time to work on them. Because of that, I wanted to do a special blog just for her to feature some of the things from her different shops. Give her a visit, there are designs to please everyone.



Best Foot Forward & Best Foot Forward Kids:

Thank you to Heather for being such a good friend, for being a fun artist, and for being an amazing photographer!

A Few of my Favorite Things - The Dan Radcliffe Edition

I don't know who is more popular - Dan Radcliffe or Holly Cow. One could argue that Holly Cow is the star of the show. But if it weren't for Dan, Holly and her friends, along with the other cast of characters available at Designs by Dan Radcliffe wouldn't be here to brighten our days. With a sense of humor, a flair for creativity, and a dash of sincerity, Dan brings these things and more to his designs, his shop, and his life. I am so happy to be part of the Zazzle family with him, and to be able to call him my friend.

Let's take a peak into Dan's world:

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty good right now. Thanks, Dan, for always being able to make me smile with your designs.
