Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of February? It seems like just yesterday, we were ringing in the new year.
The last day of February also marks the last day of our design team terms. I have been working with most of my wonderful and talented designers for a year now, and am very grateful for the support and amazing projects they've created for both the stamp line and the store. Most importantly, I feel so blessed for the friendships formed. You all have the kindest hearts.
I am very, very bad with good byes; I try very hard to avoid them. Quite honestly, I don't want to say good bye... so I won't! I already have a huge lump in my throat, just typing this, so to my designers... ALL OF YOU, I say:
Thank you for being there for the birth of the stamp company.
Thank you for being there for DCRU's transition to Claudia and Company.
Thank you for bringing the beloved Puddle Jumpers to life.
Thank you for helping when other team mates were sick or were taking care of their little ones.
Thank you for helping when I had too much on my plate.
Thank you for believing in my little place on the web enough to accept our invitations to join the teams.

LORi, A very special thank you to you. Thank you for believing in my little stamp company enough to allow the Puddle Jumpers to be born here. You are a beautiful lady both inside and out, and I know that God has great things in store for you. I sadly accepted the news of you stepping down from the team all together, but I understand your reasons. I am praying for you, and thank God for our friendship. The friendship that was born back in the fall of 2009 is one I will always thank God for; nothing better than having an amazing friend who is also a sister in Christ. I love you my sweet friend.

See, seriously bad with good-byes, and now there are tears in the mix. So instead of good-bye, I will say...
Lori, Gwen, Kim, Krista, Joni, Nicole, Nikki, Risa, Sandra, Sheri, Tori, and Tracy:
I will always, always be in awe of your creations. See you all on the web; in fact, I see some of you every day in blog land.
Big hugs and smiles to each of you,
