So I really was disappointed when The Coconut ScrapShop discontinued their kits...and their design team (me). I wanted to find something to replace that in my life...another kit club to be on the DT for. I always thought that the more published you were, the better chance you would make a DT. Well if that was true I should have more chance of making one now then ever, because I was only published once before. I have had good luck with being published lately and have several that are coming up. Back in Feb. 08, when I first decided that I wanted to be on a design team, I tried out for two DT's. I made them both. It wasn't hard and I loved it. But now...it is a different story. I have tried out for a few now, since the CSS one ended...and I have made none. They were ones I really would have liked to be on too. I know that the competition is stiff and that it is hard to select a DT. I'm not mad about not making it. It's so easy to get disappointed though when you don't make it. I know there are ladies that just keep trying out for DT's over and over again...I applaud you...it's tough. But I am going to just keep trying. I'm already in the "moving on...something else will happen" phase.
I just thought I would share what is going on with me.
I will leave you with a card I made...a very simple looking card. :)
