11 Things You Didn't Know About Me...

Monday, January 24, 2011

To those of you who haven't been here before... Welcome! To those of you who are returning, I would like to thankyou for being my support crew. My scrapping journey wouldn't be half as much fun without you!

Imaginisce have been introducing new design team members and re-introducing those of us who are returning with a fun way of getting to know us better... "10 things you didn't know about Me!"

Well we've come to the end and I'm the last design team member on the list... However, I'm now able to share that my 10 things has increased to 11 as there is a rather exciting announcement on the Imaginisce blog that I've been holding on to and can now share with everyone!!!!

I have been asked by Imaginisce to become the new Design Team Co-ordinator!
And of course... I said YES!

The past twelve months has been a whirlwind experience for me and an amazing ride along the way, not to mention working alongside a wonderful group of designers from all over the globe.
I'm thrilled to have this experience and look forward to guiding the new team members along their journey for the 2011 season with Imaginisce, and re-inforcing friendships with the returning team members.

I owe it all to Lori...
Just over twelve months ago I decided to make a Christmas Wreath and was so happy with it that I sent an email to Imaginisce to say "Look what I made" with your papers. Lori Allred sent an email back asking if I'd like to apply for the design team after seeing my wreath and the rest is history.
Lori gave me a chance when I had no experience, hadn't been scrapping for very long and was a 'nobody' in the scrapping industry... just a farmer's wife from Down Under! Lori took a huge leap of faith and I will be eternally grateful!


The Christmas Wreath... this is where it all began!
