So leaving a comment on this blog gives you a chance to win some free goodies and by making the rounds, you can increase your chances!

(Edited to add: I should be clear that I'm not going to stop crafting. Just switching jobs. This isn't a craft related "change")

I could tell you that I wanted to show you that "Big Day Essentials" could be used for non-wedding cards.
But that would be a lie...
Today's card is really for me.

Because after almost 6 years with a wonderful company,
(5 years and 11 months to the date - add 9 more months if you want to count my internships)
I have decided to leave.
Today is my very last day.

I leave with mixed feelings.
Part of me is thrilled to have a new opportunity.
The other part of me is sad to be leaving some fabulous people.
(And honestly, some of the smartest people I've ever met.)

It's funny because I thought I'd be with this company until I retired
or until they kicked me out.... whichever came first...
But sometimes personal situations mess with plans.

So to everyone who I've known and worked with, this is for you.
I wish everyone the best, personally and professionally.

Thanks for stopping by!  
The next step along the way is the very talented Mona!
