SG Publishing Creative Team News

The emails to the selected Creative Team have been sent and we can't wait to introduce them to you! There is such a wide range of styles that it's going to be fun to see what each does with the sketches. You'll see sketches used in so many different ways that the inspiration is bound to be overflowing. I know I've said it a million times but, I'm so excited to get started!

I also want to send out a big thank you to everyone that entered. It was so hard to narrow it down from over 60 entries to 13 for the team. We had no idea what to expect as far as the number of entries go and we were thrilled that so many applied. Mom, Stacey, and I sat down after stuffing ourselves with Thanksgiving dinner and looked over each and every entry. Believe me, it was a long sit down and was very, very tough. I wish we could find a way to pick everyone!

We also came to the decision that since it was so hard to narrow down that we are going to select 12 guest designers from the entries. We'll be sending out those emails sometime this week. The guest designers will differ a little from how I've been doing them here. At the new site the guest designers will be included for a month and have the opportunity to make several projects instead of just one.

In December we will start spilling some of the features we have planned for the new site. And January will be not only be the beginning of the new site but it will also be the one-year anniversary for Sketch Week. Even though it won't be called Sketch Week on the new site we are still going to celebrate the occasion. It's going to be a fun month of giveaways and lots of layouts.
