eclectic Paperie

Hello all - a very brief, but very exciting post today... I'm very happy and proud to share with you the news that I've been selected to join the Design Team at eclectic Paperie (and yes, that is a little e and big P deliberately!).


For those who don't already know eclectic Paperie, it's a lovely online store, filled with fabulous stash goodies and kits.  They also have a great blog, packed with inspirational ideas, projects and tutorials created by an amazing Design Team.  And - oh boy! - now I get to join the gang... 

I literally gasped when I got the news, and have now definitely got butterflies in my tummy.  I hope they'll settle down once I've got the first project under way!  Ah well, as Helen Keller would tell me: It's okay to have butterflies in your stomach; the key is to make them fly in formation.

I'm beyond grateful to all of you for your support and positive feedback - that's what's really helped me take this leap... and I'm so excited to have this new opportunity to play, learn and experiment alongside such fantastic artists.  I'm so looking forward to this new challenge, and it will be wonderful to have your company on the adventure.

One way to get the most out of life is to look at it as an adventure.

Adventure is worthwhile in itself.
