It's a TRUE BLUE month of November!

I thought I would never get this post up and ready, but I just had to because
this month is a truly True Blue month as
Studio Azul turns 1!

Before I go on I would like to say a big HUGE Thank You to
all of our customers, to our wonderful DT's Au, CV and Nita and of course a shout-out to
my former partner and still our
avid supporter Mia Caniza

We did it! The Philippines first kit club has surpassed the 12 month mark!!!

So what's in store for 2009? More yummy kits ofcourse! Oh, and here's a little gift for our loyal members, you'll be receiving sometime next week the first SA newsletter including sketches, project instructions and some bits of inspiration to get the most out of your kits.

Here's some inspiration you're way to get you started before your kits arrive :-) A big hug and thank you to our DT's for sending their projects and layouts early . Enjoy!

PS: In case you were curious about the photo, it has always been one of my Must-See's is the Oscar Mayer, Weinermobile :-) somehow, that sounded green instead of blue *grin*
