Happy New Year!!!
Wow....what patience you have all displayed!!
Julie Ranae here. We want to thank all of you for being
so very kind and patient as we have been in the decision-making
process for our 2012 Design Team.
I've heard from several of you 'assuming' that you
did not make the team because we you hadn't heard
from us. Many of you are trying to make decisions
regarding other teams as well.
The best we can share is if your passion is to work
with a different team and you are not able to
wait on our decision, we completely understand and
encourage you to go in the direction of your passion.
As Nicole has mentioned before,
EVERYONE WILL HEAR FROM US
one decision or another.
We know that you understand that the our family & the holiday
were a big priority for both Nicole and I during this past
month and with all VERY GOOD intentions, we had hoped
to have made the decisions, contacted EVERYONE with a
yes or a thank you for applying message.
But alas, we felt it was better to really take our time to
go through every single submission, visit every single blog
(which we have) and narrow our focus to specific needs.
Nearly 400 submissions is a beautifully daunting task
and it has been a joy to see all the talent
that is out there and interested in working
with our team.
With all sincere intentions, we hope to
make contacts by Tuesday evening and make
some sort of announcement by Wednesday.
We will not be announcing the team at that time
because we will need to hear from each designer
and get themsettled before that can happen, but it is our
to share that news with you by Monday, January 9th.
In the meantime, thank you to ALL who have been sharing such
wonderful projects over on our Facebook page. We love the
inspiration you provide. It really shows how much you
love our product and we love you all!
Happy New Year to all and we wish you
all blessings for 2012.
