It's Been A Great Ride 2015

Slightly over a year ago, I got this email from Susan Opel asking if I'd like to join her on her new adventure. She's joining My Favorite Things and was  building a challenge team. I was like, seriously, you chose me? Needless to say, I immediately say yes, before she get to change her mind. Hah!!

Fast forward to now, as we close 2015, changes need to be made and MFT decided to dissolve the challenge team. So, this would be my last post as part of MFT Challenge Team. Waaa..... Water work starts. Yes, that's how I feel. Not gonna lie, I am sad that this ride is over.

Joining MFT was truly one of the best decision I ever made creativity wise. Being part of MFT Challenge team been such a pleasure. I truly enjoy working for MFT. They really are the kind of company that I love to support. The people, the company, the way they do their business (they're very generous and always giving back to the community), the products, simply awesome. 

Most of all, what make this experience amazing, are the girls that I get to work with. The whole MFT team as a whole are amazing, kind people. I adore Kim, the owner of MFT (she's big time animal lover, so in my book that make her super awesome), Jody, Laina (she has a pug, too!, so of course, I feel like kindred spirit, in case you didn't know that I love pugs), Julie, the people behind the scene that make everything goes smoothly, are so easy to work with and they spoiled us silly.

But, for this post, I really want to give a shout out to my team mates in the challenge team. They're kind, fun, silly and we just connect. Each of this girl, Veronica, Jill, Alice, Miriam, Erin became real friends to me. We shared more than just crafty stuff, we shared our personal struggle, we became each other sound boards, we cheered on one another. We all agree that the friendship we gained from being on this team is simply priceless.

Okay, I don't want to get all sappy now. I will simply just say it with this card. 

Just like these birds, each of the girl is unique and they color my world and like they say, birds of feather flocks together. :) Veronica, Erin, Jill, Alice, Miriam, I am so glad to get to know all of you better and now have the pleasure of calling you friend. And, to our fearless leader, miss Susan Opel, thank you for believing in us, for trusting us with this adventure. It's been one heck of a fun ride.

Thank goodness for Facebook, Instagram that we all can still keep in touch with each other. 2015 been a great year and I am looking forward to what 2016 will bring. Here's to a new year, new adventure, new opportunity. Please check out MFT Challenge Blog as well for a farewell post.

To all my family and friends, hopefully 2015 been a great year for you as well and I wish you all the best for 2016. May 2016 be an amazing, prosperous, joyful year filled with many happy, great moments. Cheers..........
