I'm so excited!!!

My favorite email by far last week started out with these words "....Congratulations – I would like to extend an invitation to you to become a member of the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Design Team......"  WOW!!!!  I was absolutely blown away!!   Heart2Heart Challenges is a blog run by another Close To My Heart consultant, and each week a different challenge is posted, and people are invited to play along.  Click on the badge in the left sidebar to go straight to the blog.  The challenge is open to anyone, not just CTMH consultants.  I encourage you to play!!

When I saw that the term for the current design team was expiring, and they were accepting applications for new DT members, I decided to go ahead and apply.  I really was just doing it for the experience, you know, kind of like when you apply for a job, knowing you're not qualified enough for the position....NEVER in a million years did I dream that I would actually be asked to join the Design Team!!!  So I was absolutely beyond shocked when I received the invitation email last week.  After blowing out my mom's eardrum screaming (I was talking to her on the phone when the email came in), and then having a small panic attack about the quality of my work (have you SEEN what phenomenal projects  the current design team comes up with??), I emailed back and gladly accepted the position.  I will be part of the team through the end of the year, and just can't believe what an honor is it.  I'm putting links to the other DT members in my sidebar....please visit their blogs and leave them some love!  I can't wait to get to know these ladies!

The next 6 months are going to be scary, challenging, and exciting.  I am so critical of my own work most of the time, but I am looking forward to the opportunity to be pushed to my creative limits.  The reason I love challenges is because they force me to think outside the box, and spark ideas I never would have come up with on my own.  And it's fun to see how others interpret the same ideas.  So bookmark the blog, and come join me on this new adventure!!  See you at Heart2Heart!!!
