Hello all. I'm here with mixed feelings today... It's with a sad heart that I am saying farewell to my fellow team members at Country View Crafts - both the Challenge site and the Projects blog. Life has simply become too busy and complicated to be able to give the DT work the attention it deserves.
On the other hand, I'm deeply sensible of the privilege and excitement of the work and travel still to come in this adventurous year, so I really can't complain. If you hop over to the Country View Crafts Projects blog to take a look at my farewell journalling pages, I think you'll get that sense of positive anticipation.
It's been fantastic seeing the amazing projects entered into the challenges each month and, as always, I'm deeply grateful for all your wonderful support and comments both on the CVC blogs and here. I know I've been pretty absent from Craftyblogland lately, but that doesn't mean I don't read every single one with great pleasure.
You'll see from the sneak peek that there's a favourite film star of mine involved in the pages, and I hope you'll be able to hop over to see the rest, but for today I'll leave her with the last word (and if you want to hear how it should be delivered, it's right here - at the one minute mark if you don't want to watch the whole clip, but I do recommend it!).
