A week ago, I received an email of a lifetime. I was asked by Asa from Magnolia if I would be interested in joining the Magnolia Design Team. My initial reaction was a scream of delight! I have never felt this much excitement in a very long time and my heart and head is filled with so much joy that I thought I was going to burst! I have been a crafter for quite a while now. I’ve always dreamed of being on a manufacturer’s design team but I knew it was a shot in the moon. I know I can do arts and crafts but the caliber of talent in this craft is just unbelievable. I’ve always viewed this hobby as an outlet for any creativity I may have. Cardmaking makes me happy which for me is the point of why I am doing this :) When I am in front of stamps and color and paper and flowers, I transport myself to a happy place. But being a part of this takes it to a whole new level. By some amazing grace, somebody took notice of what I can do and liked it enough to be asked to be a part of a team. It’s really a dream come true.
So I said yes!
I am now a member of the Magnolia Design Team :) I am excited and scared at the same time. I am excited because I am just in love with Magnolia stamps – I love losing my time with them, I love collecting them, looking at my special box of really amazing stamps and creating crafts with them :) But I am also scared because being a part of something as good as this, I am intimidated by the talent that abounds this very special group. A few days ago, I was just a crafter who was amazed at the design teams’ blogs and now.. well .. I am part of the team as I should say. It remains surreal to me.
Being a fan for a long time, the design team are superstars for me. I would read their blogs, see their creations in the magazine, and be challenged thru TOMIC every week. During this week when I was introduced as a new member, they have warmly welcomed me and I would like to thank everybody :) Big hugs to all of you!
I am looking forward to growing as a crafter with this opportunity and I hope in my little way I get to inspire all of you too :)
Thank you for stopping by :)
