Design Team Announcement!!

Finally after all the stress and anxiety about who to add and having to send unhappy mail to people I am excited to announce the new team that will be with us for the next 12 months. 

Firstly THANK YOU once again to everyone that took the time out of their busy lives to send me an email. I know from personal experience what it takes to put your self out there and then the anxiety that follows. I have visited everyone's blogs and galleries and that was painstaking yes but also very rewarding as I got to add many many blogs to my Google Reader. I wish I could add everyone to this team and I am sorry that I couldn't but I hope the people that were chosen will continue to provide the same inspiration that the current team has been providing for you all. It was very very hard. As I said to many, I am not cut out for this sort of thing and I did receive some help in deciding and we still ended up with a HUGE international Design Team. I tried to mix up the styles, the countries of origin , the skill level and so on .....I think we have achieved that. I am incredibly pleased with the talent here and am pretty positive you will be too. 

So without further delay please welcome the brand new (with a couple of oldies :) ) Once Upon A...Sketch Design Team. The team will be split into 2 groups who will show their work on the 1st and the 15th of each month. 

Jeni O'Connor -Administrator (Australia /Canada)
Georgia Heald - Guest Designer coordinator (Australia)
Patti Hamil - Sponsorship Administrator (USA)
Eila Sandberg (Sweden)
Efi Stamatelli (Greece)
Erin Blegen ( USA)
Romy Veul (The Netherlands)
Vicky Alberto (Canada)
Solange Marques (Brazil)
Evgenia Petzer (South Africa) 
Renata Moni (Brazil)
Melenia Agapides (Greece) 
Cathy Cafun (Australia) 
Kim Jeffress (Australia)
Florence Teixeira - France 
Helena Virpi (Italy)
Hilde Aaslund (Norway) 
Kay Fatula (USA)
Camilla Ekman (Sweden)
Svetlana Austin (South Africa)
Karola Witzack (Polanad) 


I will introduce these ladies in the coming weeks before they officially start on July 1st! I have already seen some of their work uploaded in our Design Team private blog and I am already getting a feeling that we are in for a treat :) 

Welcome everyone! I look forward to seeing what you create with the upcoming challenges. 


With the start of a new team we also have some new blog and Design Team badges designed by Anna Zaprzelska so please go to the left sidebar of this blog to grab your new badge. 

OK..now..I can breathe a little. This was very VERY hard...

Once again, THANK YOU everyone for your applications and maybe it will be next time lucky for you.
