No, I'm not expecting. LOL! I'll get to the announcement in a second. ;)
I saw this color challenge via Facebook (thanks, Lori!) and it inspired me to get stamping. I also sought out a sketch and ended up using the latest Retro Sketch. Have you seen their sketches? I love the simplicity of their layouts, go have a look!
I used the Vanity License Plate stamp set and Die-namics. I also wanted to use the new Die-namics Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose, too. I used Whip Cream felt, too.
And now for the news. Some of you may have already read it on the MFT blog, so it may not be news, but I wanted to announce it here, too. I have decided to step down from the design team.
The truth is that my kids are young and my time has been split for a long time. I have put off making this decision and decided that it was never going to get easier to step away. I guess I thought it eventually would.
The truth is that My Favorite Things has been a big part of my life for the past three years. Of course, stamping started for me with one of the big home stamping companies, which led to Splitcoast, which led to discovering other small stamp companies. You've seen some Verve, Unity, TCP, and others, but you have seen A LOT of MFT around here. I was drawn to MFT from the beginning and I loved being a customer. I played in challenges, learned techniques, and followed all of the fabulous stampers on the team. I dreamed about being on the DT, but didn't know if it would happen, and it eventually became my reality.
It was very easy for me to spend time working with and promoting MFT products. Why? Because I loved them from the beginning. Each month was something new and exciting and that certainly hasn't changed. I loved going to CHA and meeting some of my favorite stampers in real life. There is a lot of love shared in the MFT family and I'm going to miss that the most. If you've thought they looked kind, generous, and fun online, the very truth is that they're all that in real life, too.
I hope to continue stamping (and shopping, I'm looking forward to seeing the teasers as a customer!) and coming here to share as time permits. At this time, I don't know exactly what that looks like, but we shall see.
I want to thank you for stopping in here and all of your kind comments over the years.
