WOW!!! Narrowing down the Design Team applications was SO much harder than I thought. I had 56 applicants total which is far more than I honestly thought I'd get. I had made an executive decision (haha) to pick 5 DT girls instead of the 3 I originally intended to. Then when it came down to it, I just couldn't get it to 5 so ended up with 6 fabulous, talented ladies and with Shawna being the DT Coordinator, that brings us to LUCKY #7! WHOOT!!! Please, please, PLEASE know how much ALL the applications meant to me and if I could "afford" to have 20 DT girls, I would.
I cannot say enough about how grateful and appreciative I am to have had so many wonderful applicants so THANK YOU again. If you weren't picked, I sincerely hope you know how difficult it was for me to choose. Keep in mind that this term runs through June and I will be doing some Guest DT spots as well so there will be more opportunities and hopefully I'll be able to include some more people that way. Thanks for all the support, enthusiasm and encouraging words! It means so much to me, truly!
So here we go!!! The girls who made my initial Design Team ARE (in no particular order! haha)...
CONGRATS, girls!!! I am so excited to being taking this next step and to have each of you on my team. Looking forward to working with and getting to know you all. Which we'll all be getting to do SOON. :)
