Oh, how I remember this time last year! Creating Keepsakes announced their 2010 Dream Team and I was lucky enough to find my name on the list. I was so excited! It’s hard to believe it’s already been a whole year. Really? Apparently it has since today CK announced the brand spankin’ new 2011 Dream Team!!! Congratulations to the following talented ladies:

Joey Manwarren
Kim Watson
Laura Vegas
Linda Barber
Maggie Holmes
Nicole Harper
Piradee Talvanna
Stacy Cohen
Susan Weinroth
Suzy Plantamura

You can find the official announcement here. I can’t wait to see the amazing designs these girls create in the year to come. Be sure to visit them and tell them congrats! Now, if you noticed, my name is nowhere to be found on the DT list.

Wait. for. it.

That’s because it’s found on the list of Contributing Writers!!!!!!!

Cindy Tobey
Deena Wuest

Mou Saha

I felt completely blessed (and humbled) to receive an invitation to join the editorial team as a Creating Keepsakes Contributing Writer! (Whew! It’s great to finally let that one out of the bag.) Congrats to my talented friend, Cindy Tobey, who’s joining the fresh ranks right along with me! I’m looking forward to another great year with CK and working with the sweetest and most talented ladies around.
