this is not goodbye

I have had the honor of being a part of the Work In Progress Design Team since August 2008. Month after month I got to design pages with those amazing kits and be a part of this dynamic team. Contributing to the blog and being a part of the team inspired me and helped me to grow as a designer. The best part of being on the team though was becoming good friends with Trish. She is truly remarkable. Caring, honest, creative and the most giving person I have ever had the privilege of calling friend. If you have met her, I am sure you would agree.

This past year has been a remarkable year for me. I have been given some incredible opportunities as a designer and as a result my plate has become too full. As my design career has grown, it has become necessary to lessen my responsibilities. With a heavy heart I decided to leave the WIP Design Team. Although I will not be contributing on a regular basis any more, I will still be stopping by the blog daily for inspiration and those amazing recipes.

Thank you Trish for having me on the team. Knowing you and working with your team has been a great adventure and I wish you the best of luck in 2011.

Thank you also dear blog readers for your loyalty and comments. Your interaction makes this blog a wonderful place to be.
