I’m a happy girl…

Happy Friday.

I am feeling extra blessed this morning. Why? Because of this…

Yep, I am a new Contributing Editor for Paper Crafts magazine – a new Go To Gal.

In the fall, I retired from my role with Creating Keepsakes magazine. Many have asked why and it was really quite simple: I was tired and struggling with coming up with tags and scrapbook pages. I felt I wasn’t giving the CK team and the readers my best and that made me sad.

To be honest – my heart is in cardmaking and stamping.

But after retiring from CK, I was even more sad. I missed interacting with the CK team (they are gems) and the fun of magazine work. So I started to get involved with Paper Crafts magazine. This is the perfect fit for me: cardmaking + a sweet editoral team (they are as amazing as the CK girls) + a fresh start. Heaven.

The best part of it all? I am still working with Hero Arts (nothing changes there – not a chance!) and all my other ventures. This is just icing on the cake. :)

Feeling blessed today. Hoping the same for you all.
