Design Team Members

After days of driving myself absolutely crazy, picking 76 from 119, narrowing that down to 42 all the way to 10 was impossible, In the end I went with 15...

Honestly this is the worst part of all of this.... ugh, my stomach hurts, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. I don't want anyone feeling left out. I have seen more talent from all the entries received these past few weeks than I have in my entire lifetime as an artist.

I could go on and on about how much this is.....OK enough rambling...

Here are my 15 Design Team Members in no particular order...

1 Paula Carr
2 Charlotte De Zwart
3 Ginny (V) Christiansen
4 Jason Casper
5 Ri
6 Peggy Marsh
7 Becky in East Tennessee
8 Poppet
9 Cheri Howard
10 Tracey Cuccia
11 Michelle Redman
12 Lana Clarke
13 Dominique Hornberger
14 Veronica Reed
15 Leila Pierce

If I mis-spelled your name I apologize. These members will be on my Design Team for 4 months, in August I will be doing this all over again unless no one applies because they are mad at me... Believe me I am not looking forward to that.

Members if you could PLEASE send me an email so that I can add your email to my list, I would greatly appreciate it, if you were chosen and for some reason since applying have decided not to do this please let me know as well. I will be adding guest designers to the mix once I figure out how all of that works, if you were not chosen and would like to be a guest designer during the next 4 months please let me know...

Wahoo!!! I made the team!! I am REALLY so happy and feeling fortunate to be a part of this!

I can't wait to be able to showcase more of Dustin's work in my own work. I'm truly excited to work with such a talented artist. I am also very excited to work with the other 14 artists on the team.

I can't wait to get started!

The only problem is that it will only last 4 months :(

Wahoo!
