Hi Peeps - some of you may have noticed that my beautiful "Designing For" blinkie has disappeared ... and rather than leave you wondering, I wanted to share a few words about that.
When I was offered the DT position at Penny Black it was under the understanding that I was free to choose which images I worked with and that they would all be at my disposal.
Unfortunately there seems to have been a 'broken telephone' situation and that wasn't the case. My crafting choices were made for me - and the last items I received were going to require me to change my crafting style substantially - and move in a direction which I hadn't anticipated, and honestly didn't really desire to go.
My blog has been a place where I've enjoyed sharing my little crafty adventures with the world - complete with the freedom to say - "Ooooh love this stamp" ... or "This one didn't turn out quite the way I'd intended" .... (That only happens to me - right :0) ? And sometimes even say things like "wish this sentiment was a bit bigger .... "!!
I wanted to keep that honesty and openess here - but if I was crafting with things I hadn't actually chosen (and in some cases wouldn't chose) and was struggling to feel confident with, it was going to be a conflict of interest for me - and end up not being fair to Penny Black either.
So I chose to go back into obscurity :0)
Penny Black has a gorgeous line of products - some just too jolly cute for words and I would have loved the opportunity to get to know the line a whole lot better. However, as things turned out, I don't think I was the person they needed to showcase the specific products they had in mind for me.
I do want to wish both PB and their DT all the very best. What a gorgeously talented group their DT happens to be!! I LOVED the time spent working with you all - thank you all so much for that blessing!
