We recently held the call for our 2017 Design Team, and before I share who will be designing for us in the upcoming year, I'd just like to thank each and every one of you who applied! We truly enjoyed seeing your work, and we appreciate the time you took to apply. We only had a few positions available, and had a very hard time choosing - you all have so much talent!
In the end, we think we've chosen some wonderful ladies to join our team, and we think you'll be as wowed by their art as we were!
Please take a moment to click on their names, it will take you to each of their blogs - we are sure you will want to follow each of them so you don't miss a single project they do...
We are thrilled to announce our 2017 Design Team:
We'll start with two ladies who have been on our team for several years now...
