General / This Week's New and Noteworthy

Good Morning!

I snapped that picture up there this morning and thought it perfectly fitting on so many levels; new day, new week, new season, and maybe a visual motivator for turning over a new leaf if there is something you want to do over, refresh, renew, or recommit to!
A few things to tell you about this week; Have you met Jessica yet? She's our new customer support champion who will be answering emails and inquiries and helping you out. Zeke and I are still on it too, but boy or boy are we happy to have Jessica on board. Our pledge to you of stellar customer service is even stronger with her support.

This week we have a guest blogger who is also a WGG customer! Megan from ArtbyMegan is going to be sharing what she makes out of her weekly delivery. There will be posts on her blog and we'll post them on our blog, Facebook and Twitter too so you're sure to see them all. We're really excited about the collaboration. It's our first foray into guest bloggers...anyone else interested?

Lastly, our long awaited visual online catalog will be going live Saturday (fingers, toes, eyeballs crossed) so by next Monday you'll have a whole new somethin' somethin' to look at! Stay tuned......

Have a great week everyone!!

Lisa and Zeke
