Let's start where I spent a lot of the week... in the laundry room! haha Kelly Martin is joining us from South Carolina. She is married, works full time and has 3 nieces she and her hubby adore. Kelly has never been on a Design Team and you know I love my newbies. Kelly's photo staging definitely didn't seem amateur to me so she won me over and I hope she'll win you over, too!
This next lady had me LAUGHING hard at her application and I love a sense of humor more than almost anything else. Michele Greenwood is joining us from Toto-land (her words! haha), is married with 3 grown children, works full time and does BOOT CAMP 3 times a week. Go, girl. haha This card had me swooning. Just gorgeous!!! Hopefully the
Next up is someone who I consider a friend. She's so sweet and has been so supportive for years now. Kari Webster is joining us from Missouri, she is married, loves her kitties and crafts to unwind from work. She's also been making YouTube videos and recently hit 5000 subscribers so congrats, Kari!
Let's move on to Sweet Home Alabama! haha Tanya Adams is a wife, mom and grandma who works part time at her church. She also has a Yorkie who is her shadow and enjoys spending time in her craft studio. How neat is this box?!
Lastly, Crystal Thompson will be with us. Crystal has been on The HoneyBee Stamps Design Team, Guest Designed for Pretty Pink Posh, has designed stamps for Joy Clair and more! She's married, just built a beautiful new home and recently added a new baby boy to her family, making them a family of 6. <3 I met Crystal in person at CHA this year and she's a beauty, much like this card!
I thought this sentiment was a good place to leave off as I'd like to thank YOU all from the bottom of MY heart. I started my business about 4 years ago and have grown so much in that time. I had people that said I wouldn't be able to do it and sometimes it feels like it's a constant battle of 'I think I can', but I know I can... and I AM! I am so, SO grateful to my loyal customers and friends that support me and my shop. It's hard not to get emotional when I have so much invested from money, my time and so much of my heart. I love my business and I've loved getting to know so many of you personally. My business is personal to me and that's why you'll see a mix of business with my daily life on my IG account. I have had suggestions to separate the two, but honestly, I feel that has been part of my success. I want you to know ME, which includes my children, my hubby, my leggings (HA!), sometimes pics of my messy house, my coffee cup obsession, my bad days, my sarcasm, my humor, my VERY far and few between craft projects, a few selphies and maybe some food and drink pics. ;) I hope that most of you enjoy getting to have a personal contact and experience when you're ordering your craft goodies. Just know that I strive to provide customer service, but I really do consider so many of you friends and I don't think you find that many places. Thank you, THANK YOU, for everything!
I hope you enjoy the new Design Team. We'll see you soon!
