Prima Design Team 2014-2015!! & a Resin Frame Tutorial...

SO excited to be returning for another year on the Prima Design Team!!

Prima is truly a dream team for so many, including myself, and I'm so happy to be realizing that dream alongside so many amazing scrappy friends, and especially to be able to do both years with my sister Kelly...I cannot imagine anything more perfect.

Thank-you to everyone on Facebook who already offered kind, encouraging words. They mean so much and I am so grateful for you all :)

And I could not possibly write this post without recognizing those of you who felt disappointment in this year's results. I know exactly how you feel. I too have applied and not been selected. I too remember the bittersweet feelings of being happy for those who made it while feeling sadness that you weren't there with them. And at the time, when people tried to give me encouragement and say "just try next year", it was hard to feel optimistic. A year seems SO long and far away...

But in truth, it isn't. In the next year you will learn and grow so much! You will make more connections and friends, make other teams, and make beautiful memories on paper and online while you're at it! Truly, you will. And yes, there is always next year. Always another shot if you don't give up. And when your time comes, it will surely feel that the timing was just right.

So please, don't give up :) And hugs to those feeling down...I know your pain.

I leave you now with a project that was on the Prima blog not too long ago that I neglected to share here.
