No matter what other magazines end up in my mailbox, I work tirelessly every day for NextStepU—creating a unique and timeless college, career and life skills tool for high school students. And the best part is that it's free in the guidance office for any kid that needs it. It's free online, too, through the digital e-mag. Check it out here! I'm quite proud of my more than 9 years with NextStepU!!" And I loveeeeeeeeeee her lo!! LOVING that blue wood grain and that BANNER!!! BEAUTIFUL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Doreen Vasquez said...

Oka i have placed this on my schedule so I don't forget this time!

Scrappi Sandi said...

I'm afraid I'm in the camp of not buying magazines!! I'm not really a celeb follower & I'd rather read a book than a load of advertising!!! However there is one magazine that I recieved as a gift subscription...it arrives by post each month & I do find it quite good for reference....so maybe I can feature that!!!

Some awesome LO's by the DT...& I'm off to check out the 'Flow' website! Thanks for the link!! ♥
