Changes

Hello Everyone.  I hope you had a great weekend.  We are enjoying a beautiful fall and had a great weekend.

The last couple of weeks have been filled with lots of change.  Last week I made a very difficult decision.  I decided to step down from the Creative Team at Designer Digitals, a place that I have called home over the last four years.  It was a very difficult decision for lots of different reasons.  So many of my dear friends are there and I feel blessed to have been a part of the community for so long.  I want to take this time to thank Katie and Randy Pertiet and all of my dear friends at Designer Digitals for everything.  You will always hold a very special place in my heart.

Throughout the last couple of years, I have discovered that I LOVE sharing my passion for digital scrapbooking with others.  I find so much joy creating, demonstrating and helping others find the artist within them.    I really want to focus on that aspect of my life right now....bringing my passion for digital memory-keeping to others.    I decided that I needed the time and creative freedom to follow my heart.  I am very excited about what is ahead.

IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE
WITH YOUR VISION,
IT'S NOT BIG ENOUGH

I am working diligently on a new website that I hope will be a digital memory-keeping resource for people around the web.  It will launch on November 1st and I will have more information for you in the weeks ahead.  My team and I have been busy getting our "pixels" in a row and we are excited to share our vision with you.

  16. Wow! The wind just got knocked out of me! Such big news! I noticed your new status at DD (commander instead of CTM) and rushed over here to see if you posted anything about it. Does this mean you won't be even posting pages at DD? It will be sad not to see your beautiful work there anymore, but I'll be keeping an eye on your blog so that I can be sure to follow you as you embark on your new adventures. Looking forward to the great unveiling on Nov. 1st!

  18. Before I even had PSE I found your layouts online. I was amazed and curious - just how did you do that - they were like magic tricks. I joined DD because of those layouts that fill my favorites folder and are a constant source of inspiration.
    I am so excited that you will be doing what you are driven to do, and wish you all the success possible.
    I look forward to the new site and all the beauty, challenges and creative forces it holds.
