Can I Have a Drumroll, Please?

Wow, oh Wow am I excited about our new design team!! Let me tell you, I really think we have picked some major talent to work with us! Not only that, but we were able to pick a larger team this time around so "variety" will be the buzz word around here for awhile!!

So, who will the new INK Girls be? Well, without futher ado let me introduce them to you: (to visit their blogs, just click on a name)

Toni Armstrong
Cathy Indelicato
Elena Joldersma
Loretta Lock
Dawn Lusk
Holly McMillen
Kerri Michaud
Joy Stagg
Joanne Travis
Velta Wesson

CONGRATULATIONS Ladies!!
I am really, very excited about working with our new team to showcase our stamps, get the word out even more about Artful INKables and make new stamping friends.

The Ink Girls will be settling into their new roles here shortly and then, we will be rolling out 4 new stamps sets that I am dying to share with you!

And to the 100+ ladies who also applied to be on our team...please dont feel discouraged! This was such a hard decision and many factors went into making our choices. This business is so subjective and just because you were not a finalist doesnt mean you 'dont have what it takes'! Lots of variables were considered here, not just talent but writing ability, enthusiasm, photography, blog traffic and just a 'fit' with our particular company. I encourage everyone to continue to apply to any company calling for designers and to apply with us again when we have a call in another 6 months! Also, we plan to initiate a 'guest designer' program in the near future and ALL of you will be considered for these positions as well. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all so much for your applications and for your continued support of Artful INKables.
