Farewells Are The Hardest Thing To Do
Hello Crafters Kylie here with a warning of a photo heavy post.
Today I would be writing one of the hardest blog posts I have ever had to write for Anna’s Craft Cupboard, and it is with a heavy heart I am writing.
We all know that life leads us in different directions, we all know that life can get crazy and way too busy at times.
Well life has just done that to me.
It’s been crazy and busy, my mind and heart have been focused on other things in my life, the one thing that has suffered from this is my scrapping and especially my Design Team efforts for Anna’s Craft Cupboard.
It truly is a shame, but for months and months I have had this struggle and I have tried my hardest to find that balance but I just can not, so this means I am stepping away from my Design Team commitments and leaving Anna’s *sobs*
I didn’t want to leave without sharing some of my time here at Anna’s.
I have truly been very, very lucky to have been Designing for Anna’s for many years and I have had the pleasure to work with two amazing owners, Julie and Briony and I have made friends for life with both these beautiful woman.
How amazing that I started my creative journey with Anna’s in 2013…were they both were crazy to keep me on?…LOL
It started with a sketch challenge and BOOM I was in there creating with some pretty amazing products and sometimes some challenging products…oh the mind did struggle. LOL
First layout for Anna’s in August 2013 was my first ever sketch challenge layout. Would you believe I had never attempted to create using a sketch and now thanks to Anna’s I can now make my very own sketches to share with our awesome community.
Anna’s has encouraged me to learn different things on my scrapbooking and creative journey.
It has expanded my horizons and taught me to love this craft so much more.
In my 4 years with Anna’s I have worked with many amazing brands and here are just a few of my favorite layouts I have made over my time.
I really could have added more, as I must say that designing for Anna’s, my albums are full of wonderful memories for myself and my family to treasure for a very long time.
I would have to say I loved every layout I have made for Anna’s as it had been a privilege to create for such an amazing online store.
Anna’s was the first Design Team I had ever applied to and it was an amazing experience. Because of Anna’s I had the courage to apply for the Scrapbooking Memories masters twice, had layouts published and met the most amazing creative people I know.
I feel sad to say goodbye…but then again its not really goodbye its more like “hey I’m just going to take a little adventure on my own for awhile…but I will see you soon again my friend”.
I leave you all in the wonderful hands of our other Design Team members Rikki, Rachael, Lisa and Kathy. Who I know will inspire and guide you through this amazing journey of scrapbooking….no its more then just scrapbooking it arty wonderful memories.
I shall leave you with my motto –
Be Happy With What You Make
“YOU ARE AN ARTIST”
