thank you and understanding

Thank you all for your love and support and congratulations on my big announcement! I still cannot believe that I am a Paper Crafts Go To Gal!!! To see a dream come true is amazing and I am trying to figure out how in earth I got so blessed with my family, my friends, and now this!

But there is a flip side, I know all too well. Several of my fellow designers, and friends, did not get the exciting news, but the other. I have been there. Two years ago, I was there. The day of the announcement, I cried. Read this blog post about it. I meant every single word and still do. It Was An Honor

I hope that you hold your heads high and shout it out to the world. Going through the process is tough work, be proud of what you created. And tell the world that you were asked! You were asked to try out! What an honor! You have my utmost respect.

I remembered your post from 2 years ago. You were very honored and sad at the same time. I admired your post then & I do again on this one! It really is (or should be) an honor to be recognized, with the win or not. I really am so happy for you and for us too! You will bring some great inspiration to the table!!!!
