Really Exciting News …………

………………..that I have been absolutely dying to tell you all.

I am going to live the dream ……. I have been offered a full-time position with Crafters Companion, working closely with Sara as Creative Development Manager. I’ve handed in my notice at work (very scary, but very exciting) and will start work on the 11th January! My new role will encompass lots of areas of work, but will predominantly be working on new product development projects with Sara, I’ll also be doing a lot of the TV shows with Sara (and then some of the shows for Crafters on my own too!).

As you all know ive been doing quite a bit for Crafters in the background over the last year, so I am so over the moon that Sara thinks I will be a valuable asset to Crafters Companion and can’t wait to start working with her and the company full-time. The team at Crafters Companion is amazing. I’ll be working with a really talented and wonderful bunch of people

I am so excited and have been dying to tell you all, its been un-bearable trying to keep my mouth shut! no mean feat! Its been a life changing decision for me, but one I am really excited about, my wonderfully supportive husband has encouraged me every step of the way and says that opportunities like this only come around once in a lifetime, so grab it with both hands while you can.

I have driven my friends and family especially hubbie mad while making the decision, thank you to everyone who has listened to me whittle on and on …. I have some wonderful friends where I work now, and some more wonderful friends waitng for me at me my new job.

So decision made ……. and I cant wait, there is going to be some blow your mind stuff coming your way – trust me 🙂

Lots of Love, Lx
