Hi all, having a great day?
First of all I want to thank all of you for all the nice comments I get on my posts, each one of them means so much to me. Now when I shall travel around in the world to teach classes, I really hope that I will meet some of you in real life and you all means so much to me. I just wish I had more time to blog-jump and to give comments back to you all, but my days just isn't long enough and I am always swamped in stuff to do. But I hope that I one day will be able to comment a bit more back, I owe it to each one of you. THANK YOU for every visit you have done to my blog and THANK YOU for every word that's left behind. I've blogged for 3 years and 5 months no, and you all inspire me to keep sharing my works for a long long time to come., - a warm hug to each one of you!
Time flies, and the last years have given me so much. For five years back I had NEVER dreamed of everything I have been trough the last four years. When scrapbooking became my big passion in life in 2007, I had this little dream of making my scrapbook to a living. There was this tiny idea in my head to become a product designer, but I remember that idea was for me so unreal, seemed so far away, that I didn't dared to even hope for it. But, I dreamed about being a part of a design team, and Prima was the first brand who have meant tons for me and my scrapbook from the very first beginning, they have always been my "heart brand".
I never forget the day I got invited to join Prima's DT from July 2008, it was truly a BIG dream coming true! And wow, 3 years has passed already, and wow it has been 3 amazing years that I will never forget. I can't imagine a better team to be a part of, and one of the reasons is the most amazing DT coordinator Sharon Laakkonen who always takes so good care of everyone on the DT and makes us all feel so special and appreciated. She have done my time on the DT to something extra precious for me, because of the amazing coordinator she is, and I am sure everyone else on the team feels the same too. So, I wanted to give her at least a tiny thing back, so I made this "Thank You" gift box to her;
It's a corrugated cardstock box where I used Gesso and teared pattern paper pieces in a technique to make it look extra shabby chic. Added tons of different Prima products on the lid, together with different scraps for a Shabby Chic-Steampunk mixed look, a "Pretty Punk" style, totally inspired by the very cool steampunk-style from the very talented Finnabair, together with the soft and more romantic and shabby chic look which I love.
Here you can see one of the sides of the box, and the white bird peeking up on the lid ;O)
From one of the back corners. I just love that non-brand white bird! it's a find from Dubai, so love it!
- Thank You Sharon for making the 3 years on Prima's DT so extra special and precious, and thank you for who you are!
I do not know if Prima have already picked their new DT. But I wish everyone of you who have tried out for the DT call good luck! For me it has been 3 amazing years, and I am sure those of you who will join the new team will have an amazing time on the team too, and I can't wait to see what amazing pieces the new DT will create!
For me the future will be a bit different now... As mentioned earlier in the post I had this far dream about become a product designer, and my Comfort-Craft Tools is no longer a secret. And in the post below I shared the news that I will teach for Prima, and a few more secrets will be shared soon :D All I can say is that I am so excited, so happy... I pinch myself in the arm every day, I can't believe what's happening around me now, all the opportunities I have been given.. and I can't wait to see what the next months will bring! I am so, so thankful... And I can't wait to meet scrappers from around the world, to meet some of YOU! :D
Thank you everyone for dropping in, and I wish you all a wonderful day!
