I have been chomping at the bit all week to share my big news, but Mary asked that we wait until Friday.....well, it's FINALLY Friday!! My big news is that I have been chosen to be a member of the Paper Cutz Challenge Design Team!! I am so excited that I can hardly stand it. I know my family is probably tired of hearing it and my friends (who don't even know what a design team is) don't "get" it, so I'm glad to finally get to talk about it here. When I saw that they were choosing new members, I decided to just go for it. Never in a million years did I think that I would be chosen and as the days went on, I figured that I was right. When I checked my e-mail and got notification that I was one of the chosen ones, I started screaming! My daughter, who was the only one that I told I had submitted, was so excited for me! I didn't tell anyone else because I would feel stupid if I didn't get picked. My hubby was super proud for me. He was proud that I was brave enough to try out because I usually let my fear of failure hold me back from trying things. That is another reason I love the crafting community so much. I have never felt so much kindness and encouragement as I have since I have been doing this. It has given me so much confidence in my abilities and given me the courage to go for it! I feel so blessed to be a part of Mary's team and hope that you'll join me in my new adventure! Mary has so many awesome challenges coming down the pike.....can't wait to get started!! Have a great morning. Hope to post a new project later today....
