I just received an email from a local scrapbooking store.  I had applied to be a part of their design team for the next 6 months.  This would involve making “samples” and examples of cards and scrapbooking pages for display around the shop.  I hadn’t heard back from them so I figured I hadn’t been picked as a successful applicant.  Not so!  Today they let me know that I had indeed been selected and that they want me on their team.  I had to send in some examples of my cards (the main paper-craft that I do currently) and they are shown below in the slideshow.

This isn’t a paid job.  Basically I will get sent a pack of paper and embellishments every month that I get to play with and make samples for the store.  Fun!  I hope I can do it.  I’m not always good under pressure but I thought this would be a good opportunity to improve my skills (such as they are) and also work to a deadline.  Not sure of all the details at present – I have to email back for an information pack – but I am hoping this will be good for me and help me to get organised and motivated and maybe end the creative rut I’ve been in.  I think I also have to occasionally lend a hand in the store during special events, which is a bit scarier, but I guess I’ll find all that out later.

Anyway, it is, as I said, an opportunity and I am trying to take more risks in life and JUST DO IT when it comes to things that might be a little bit intimidating.  Wish me luck!
