Fond Farewell!

This will be my final posting as a Design Team Coordinator/Member of Kaboodle Doodles.  I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you - current dt members, former dt members and challenge participants for being so wonderfully supportive of this challenge blog.  I came on board as a guest designer with Challenge #3 on March 1, 2009 and here we are in June, 2012 at Challenge #125!

It has been a grand adventure indeed and I have met and worked with so very many talented people through the years.  I have made wonderful friends and will continue to visit and support them all as I move forward.  I am not giving up crafting - heaven forbid - but I will be going back to my roots in clay and fiber as well as continuing to work with paper.  Retirement is looming and with that will mean much more time spent aboard our beloved Belmira, cruising the oceans and waterways and enjoying life at sea.  You can follow our adventures on my blog Mudmaven Designs and dh's blog Sailing Belmira.

I look forward to participating in future challenges here at Kaboodle Doodles and also look forward to seeing all of the wonderful creations by the design team and by the super talented challenge participants.  I wish the new team the best of luck and hope that you will continue to support their efforts by playing along in the fun challenges presented here on Kaboodle Doodles.  Don't you just love the new blog design that Kath has created?  She just jumped right in with both feet and hit the ground running!

Remember, Kaboodle Doodles is currently looking for some new design team members.  Please see Kath's post HERE for more details.

Thanks again for all the wonderful memories and I'll see you all out there in the blogisphere!

DESIGN TEAM CALL

Kaboodle Doodles just went thru a major change with our big boss, Chris, giving up the reigns of Kaboodle Doodles.  Quite a bunch from the current team have stepped up including me to keep our well-loved site continuously running. 

Cheryl & I, Kath, are now at the helm with our good Audrey remaining as KD's Sponsor Coordinator.  Chris remains with the team in advisory capacity.  As such, with a new blog design, we are currently having a Design Team Call.

We are also saying a fond farewell to some of our wonderful design team members and we are looking for more talented crafters out there to join our ranks and keep the site churning with challenges and inspirations for every crafter out there.

(1) DT Sample Project every (2) weeks is the minimum requirement but it can be a weekly requirement depending upon the DT Call results.  A healthy attitude and an eagerness to craft and share with everyone is a must.

If you are interested, here's what you need to do:

Send an email to ladykatuts@yahoo.com  with "KD DT CALL" written on the Subject Line.  Your email should include the following:

  • Two samples of your work
  • A link to your blog or any other online galleries you may have
  • Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you want to be part of our team

We will be selecting several new team members and would love to hear from you!

Deadline for applications is July 14, 2012. We will be getting hold of accepted applicants not later than July 20, 2012.  Announcement of the new team members is on July 30 together with their 1st DT projects!

Thanks!
