A Total Shock...... in a good way.

Ever since I started scrapbooking and cardmaking way back in 2005 I have dreamed of being on a Scrapbooking Store's Design Team.  I had never applied because I thought I just wasn't good enough.  Then about a month ago I decided what the heck have I got to lose and applied to be on the Design Team of one of my favourite NZ Scrapbook stores, ARTFULL CRAFTS .  It wasn't until afterwards and I told my husband what I had done full realisation of what I had done hit me.  If I made the team how was I going to juggle everything because incase it had escaped my notice I am a Mum to 3 children under 5 with another one arriving very shortly.  Oh right, so I knew I would have to priortise and decide what I really want out of my scrapbooking and cardmaking if I did by some miricle make the team. Well to my total shock I have made the team.  Make sure and go and check out the Artfull Crafts blog so you can see the other ladies that made the team.
So I had already made some really tough decisions and resigned from a few other DTs,  but this opportunity is really just too massive to turn away from so of course I accepted the position.  I am totally honored to have been on the other DTs and worked with the talented ladies that I did, but  I am sure that everyone will agree that sometimes we just have to make really tough desicions and put ourselves, our dreams and our goals first.
