Hello Festive Friday Fans! We trust you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones and that you're enjoying the New Year so far... It's already time to start thinking about a new set of Festive Challenges coming your way!
We have a few announcements to make, so let's get right to it.
We know you're all eager to get to work on your stash of Christmas cards, so we are excited to be bringing you our first challenge of 2014 next Friday, January 17th! The new one will go live at midnight PST, so keep a lookout! There are some changes to the challenge this year, so we'll tell you more about that next week, also.
Now, we have some fun news to share! We are excited to have not one, not two, but three extremely talented new designers to our Festive Friday Design Team! We are so honored to have these ladies joining our team, and we think they'll round out the diversity of our team very well.
In no particular order (just the order the photos came out of my folder!), may we introduce:
I used to be a complete Scrooge until I started paper crafting about 7 years ago; now I LOVE the holidays and think the idea of Festive Friday is genius and so much fun! I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the FFDT in 2014. My favorite things to make are cards and tags, and in the last year or so I’ve also become a little obsessed with clever and beautiful packaging. Sometimes I prefer a vintage look with lots of layered details; other times I’m happy to leave a project simple and sparse. Always, I’m inspired by fellow crafters’ creativity! When I’m not working away in my little studio, I have an amazing husband, 3-year-old son, and baby girl who keep me pretty busy. We live in sunny Southern California, but I’m a New Yorker at heart (small town; not the city!). I’m looking forward to a fantastic year here at FF!
