A New Year ... Some New Information!

So I'm only about a week late on posting my New Year post ... but what matters is that it is a new year, and I am still contributing to this blog.

First, A HUGE thank you to all of my readers! 2010 was an amazing year, and I feel like I have been so blessed to have interacted with all of you.

Next ... a big announcement
As of December 31 my contract with Creating Keepsakes ended. As I contemplated resigning, my mind kept going back to my sweet boys and the husband I don't get to see much lately, and I have decided to decline the offer to resign. It has been a hard decision for me to make, but it has been the RIGHT decision for me.

So where does this leave me with Scrapbooking? with CK? with other design work? Well, I have some great design offers in the works! I am still going to be scrapbooking, and hopefully will have more time to post projects that I will get to do. You will still be seeing my work in CK through the majority of the 2011 year (because we work in advance to the month of course), and I will still be available to special projects and they are presented to me ... SO you'll still be seeing a little bit of me around CK. As for the other projects, freelance design, etc. You will just have to stay tuned to my blog to see the fun things that are coming!

THANK you to ALL of the CK team, to the many incredible people I have had the opportunity of rubbing shoulders with and working with. Thank you for the most amazing, creative, learning, and excitement for the past 2 1/2 years. Thank you for choosing me as the Scrapbooker of the Year. It has been a dream come true! CK sent this darling cookie bouquet on the ending day of my contract. I have always wanted one of these and it was SO very fun to receive! THANK YOU CK! And thank you to everyone for supporting this wonderful journey of mine!
