A small breakthrough in the scrapbook industry for me. I applied to be on the Design Team at Diversity Designs, but because of being international they weren't able to offer me a position at the moment. However they do want to work with me and offered me the chance to moderate one of the forums, as well as to write a regular column of my choosing on their main site!
I am so excited by this, I really believe in what Roselyn and Rashida, the owners are doing with this site. And the community is wonderful, we have a truly diverse membership of scrapbookers and other paper crafters, and I am learning new things every day.
It's a small step, but yet it's huge because it is the first one, and it really motivates me to keep on trying in the industry. If my favourite thing to do could someday become the way I make my living I would be the happiest person alive. Lucas and I discussed this over the weekend and I know he will support me all the way. I certainly never considered myself an artist, definitely never thought that I could make art my job, but now I am asking myself why on earth not? There's certainly nothing to be lost by giving it a try is there?
So wish me luck.........
