Exciting news!

Sunday, April 10, 2016

Hi friends. Some of you already know from Michele's announcement here but I will be joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog as its new Challenge Director. I am beyond thrilled for this opportunity and simply cannot wait to introduce you to the rest of the Inspiration Squad at the beginning of May. And don't forget to mark your calendars for the first challenge of 2016 on May 6th. A big thank you and shout out to Michele for this amazing opportunity!


I was even so fortunate to meet Michele herself a few weeks back as we don't live too far from each other. It was a wonderful morning figuring out how the challenge blog would be revamped and all the details behind the scenes. And the fact that we were eating yummy Mexican food while doing so made it all the more fun. :) And I just have to say that she is the sweetest woman you will ever meet and I am so grateful for the chance to meet her in person.

Thank you to those who have already stopped over to congratulate me. I'll be back here tomorrow for the first day of the April release for Clearly Whimsy Stamps.

I hope each of you are having a fabulous day. Crafty hugs!
