My MFT Design Team Journey!

Hey everyone!

I wanted to write up a blog post to remember my amazing journey as a My Favorite Things designer. I recently stepped down from the design team to focus more time on family, work and personal commitments. It's probably one of the hardest things I've done EVER! I've really grown to love the MFT family of designers, Kim (the owner) and Jody (MFT coordinator, and one of my sweetest friends ever!) I will continue to support MFT in all ways -- as you know, I can't live without their products -- can you say MFT Die-Namics? Love, love, love! ❤

So I wanted to dedicate this post to Kim, Jody and the MFT design team. LOVE you ladies! ❤

Here's a quick peek of some of my work as an MFT designer (December 2010 - October 2011):

... and what an AMAZING journey it's been! ❤

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have an amazingly crafty week ahead! Hugs! ❤

Arlene - I am always amazed at the number of projects created by the MFT design team. You all do beautiful work, but it is abig time committment and there are only so many hours in the day! I just wanted to thank you - It was through your blog and YouTube videos that I learned about MFT. I just received my first order (can't believe it took me SO long to place one) and i have since placed 2 more orders all in the same month!! I have always loved your MFT projects and know we will see you using the products in your projects.
Hugs, Betty (mplsbetty)

I must say, you came to my blog updates an unknown but QUICKLY... QUICKLY I SAY... became someone I looked forward to seeing your creations.. You added that DRAMATIC flair to these CUTE stamps that I think is only ARLENE possible. You take care and I will continue to change my channel to check out your youtube posts... you also made me look at "flowers" in a new way with your use of them...
