first off, i don't know that there is ONE good way of handling changes. we all have our own ways of dealing. so for those of you who saw this first layout in the SC reveal and were shocked, i'm sorry it came as a surprise. i was under the impression that my leaving SC would have already been announced when i made this layout. it was intended to be a happy celebratory page, a way for me to look back and see all the many many many good things that have happened in the last four years. i have had a delightful time being a part of the SC community, first as a subscriber and then for the last nearly 3 years as a member of the wonderful design team. it was a dream come true for me, i adore the girls i got to work with so closely. i'm so grateful for the lasting friendships that i have because of SC. it has been a good four years. my reasons for leaving are varied, mainly, i needed a change and this was a good time to do it. God has a way of making things work for our good--it's our job to align what we think is good to what He knows is that. He's been giving me ample opportunity this summer to listen and grow close to Him. my leaving is all a part of the process. so if you're sad and shocked that i'm not going to be around SC as much, please don't be. know that it is a good thing and i'm happy. :) i'm not disappearing, not at all. i'm simply moving on to new things. exciting things. more on that later.

and this is what we ate nearly every day. bread and nutella. i hand cut the large title then exacto knifed the smaller subtitle. holy hard. but it looks kind of cool.

thank you everyone who's ever been a part of SC, you've made a huge impact on me and i hope my leaving will not mean we will become strangers.
now, on to my news:
i'm moving to cocoa daisy! i'm thrilled to be working with christine and ronda. why from one kit club to another, you ask? well, the two are very different in my point of view, each offers a slightly different take on the concept. i'm excited to see what a new take on it will do to my creativity. and ronda and i live 5 minutes from each other, so it's rather convenient when we want to play with paper together, don't you think? i'm kind of giddy about that fact. i asked for a break and was graciously given a month off from designing, i'll start that up again come the november kit, but as of now, i'm sporting the fancy title of social media director. since i'm online a lot, i figured it would be a good fit.
i'm freelancing for scrapbooks, ETC! i am writing a new column that will be out in the feb '12 issue. this new opportunity means i'm using my degree in english! and yes, i do know how to capitalize when necessary. i've loved working with michelle rubin, the editor. she's a bit like me, and i find that funny. we've had fun working through concepts and ideas, and the column continues to morph. i like that she's a go-with-the-flow kind of girl.
i'll explain more later. i promise.
P.S. i'm still writing the trends column for scrapbook and cards today. luckily both magazines were good with it. :)
