Thank you to our departing DT!

Postby mlepitts » Oct 5th, '16, 12:41 pm

I am sure you have all seen the news that we're losing some of our designers this month.

Denise, Anna, Doris, Miriam, and myself all stepped down from the DT for various reasons.

I hope you'll join me in thanking them all for their inspiration and support of Cocoa Daisy. We had some changes in the requirements for our designers and that was part of the reason for many to leave. I hope they'll all chime in, I know not everyone is planning on exiting Cocoa Daisy permanently. :)

We are losing some great designers, I know their work will be missed in the monthly gallery.

For me it was the video requirement (we're having our team do a monthly video). I don't have enough time in my day to add this, and it was kind of time anyway, my kids are now at college and I don't feel like I have much to scrap about now. I am sure that will change, but I thought long and hard about it and know this is the right direction for me to take.

I'll still be leading the social media campaigns and working with the DT, but I won't be on the team any more.

I'm so sad about those of you not returning... I understand, truly I do but after a while the people you work with become like family and that familiarity is so comforting. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every one of you and look forward to keeping in touch via IG or FB. Best wishes to y'all!

I will miss their take on the kits each month. All of you guys have taught me so much! Being a rookie and having all of you as inspiration is such a gift <3

Change is so hard, and I'm so sad to see you gals go. Please say you'll still check in here on the board. You've all been such an inspiration! I really can't thank you enough. :)

I will still be around!
Like Emily I am only stepping down because of the video requirement and the added social media posts. It's just not my thing! There are lots of scrapbookers who enjoy that and it seems effortless to them. I cannot say the same thing!!

That being said I am still scrapping and still want to be involved with the message board and goings on here! I don't scrap as much for my kids anymore but with 7 grand children I have plenty to scrap about. :)

I started a Christmas ATC and Card swap thread. It's really fun, hope you all will join!

Denise, I'm glad you are sticking around, and I'm glad you're still creating. I really loved your gallery this month, it was just fun and funky and made me want to cut up paper and play. I know the Christmas ATC swap wouldn't be the same without your leadership. :)

I wish each of you all the best as you continue on with your journey. You've made a difference in our lives. We looked to you every day for ideas and inspiration with our kits. Thank you for all your efforts, inspiring us with your art and helping us grow creatively. You have inspired so many, including myself and you will be missed.

I cannot thank you enough DT for the inspiration, tutorials and online friendships over the years. Looking forward to still seeing you, Denise & Emily, at the ATC/Card swap and on social media. Wishing all the best to the departing DT. You will be greatly missed. :(

I'm really sad too.
You girls are my friends.
I don't do a school run in the day anymore, it's you girls I hang out with instead :D

Glad you are sticking around Denise. And so pleased to hear that your family are still giving you plenty to scrap about.

Emily.....get the kids to send you more photos with their stories :D :D

Thank you! I plan on sticking around too. I have made so many wonderful friends through Cocoa Daisy and even if I don't have the time to chat (or scrap) as much as before, I hope to still be a part of this community. Love you way too much to completely let go. :) ;)
