*Why in the world does it say I posted this on Thursday when I actually posted it on Friday afternoon! Sometimes blogger is just so weird...

Introducing the new Creating Keepsakes. Starting in January CK magazine will have a whole new look. But the changes aren't stopping with just the cover. Along with the cover they are introducing a new look on the inside as well. To me the most exciting change is the addition of a Creating Keepsakes Dream Team. A team of 10 people to work directly with Creating Keepsakes. So why does this have me all giddy? Because I'm one of those 10!

I can't believe that I'm on this amazing team along with: Emily Falconbridge, Maggie Holmes, Jill Hornby, Ingunn Markiewicz, Emily Magleby, C.D. Muckosky, Amanda Probst, Kelly Purkey and Tiffany Tillman.

When I saw the list for the first time I flipped! I mean these are people that have work that I admire. Seriously? Me...on that list too!?! I think it might take awhile for it to settle in.

Creating Keepsakes has made this last year one that I will never forget. I never in a million years thought that an opportunity like this would come my way and I am overjoyed. I'm looking forward to the new CK and the wonderful year that is ahead!

CONGRATULATIONS! You deserve it!

Kodi Logan said...

if you type a post one night and then wait to post it another day...it puts the date that you originally typed it. i don't know if that's why the date is wrong or if blogger was pulling its normal weirdness.i know that happens to me a lot though. sometimes i'll have time here and there to get a post ready, but it always puts the date i started typing. i hate that!
