We here at Our Daily Bread designs are getting ready to ring in the new year with lots of exciting changes! Please stay tuned here as we begin to announce these changes to you!
But first, it's that time of year when we have to say goodbye to some of our beloved Design Team... and it's with great sadness that we say farewell to Silke and Betty. These ladies are the cream of the crop... both so talented and both have brought so much to Our Daily Bread designs! We will all miss them in the Bread Basket, that is for sure!!! Fortunately, we know where they are.... and we will be stalking their blogs so we can continue seeing their fantastic creations! So we're really not saying "goodbye"... just more like "see you soon"!
While it's always hard to say farewell... this time of year also brings some new hellos as well, and this year we have a truly awesome and exciting lineup of new talent for you to be wowed and inspired by!
I'm happy to announce our New Design Team Members:
- Dawn Lusk (who has been Guest Designing for a few months now) will be staying on and we're just so thrilled to have her!
- Debi Southard (who also has served as Guest Designer for the past three months) will be staying with us in the bread basket and we're just tickled pink!
- Returning after Guest Designing last summer is Kathy Jones! Whoo hoo!!! You can visit her at Inspired to Stamp. Kathy is super talented and so sweet... I'm thrilled to have her rejoining us!
- Now I'm jumping up and down to announce our brand new Design Team Member: Julie Warner!!! If you have followed SCS at all I'm sure you have seen Julie's fabulous work under the name justwritedesigns. She has been one of the latest "Dirty Girls" and has a wonderful blog: The Write Stuff. We are thrilled and honored to have Julie join us in the bread basket!!!
- Sabrina Jackson (blog: sjbutterflydreams) is joining us and I if you don't know her and love her already, I know you will in no time! Her Christian spirit and love shine forth in everything she says and does!
- Also joining us as a Guest Designer is America Kuhn!!! Whoo-hoo!!! I've long admired America's work and I'm thrilled she has agreed to join us! I know she will inspire us all! America's blog is Cards By America..
- Last but certainly not least, I'm beyond thrilled to welcome Christine Okken (Blog: Christine Creations)! A past SCS Dirty Girl, and dear sweet Christian and talent beyond words.... I know you will love seeing all that Christine will bring to the bread basket!
Please join me in saying thank you to Silke and Betty, AND in welcoming all our new designers to the team!
