I'm very sad to today have to be the bearer of some unhappy news.
Steph, who has been my partner in crime here on A Passion for Papertrey for the past six months, has decided to step down from the blog for personal reasons. I know everyone who has supported our blog will miss her sense of humour, generosity and wonderful creations as much as I will.
On a personal note I want to thank her for everything she has done for our blog – we met on a stamping forum, realised we both adored Papertrey, and our friendship bloomed from there. When I had the idea of starting a UK and Europe PTI blog I wanted Steph to be the person I worked with –she’s become a great friend and I’m so grateful for all her hard work and dedication. She’ll still be around in blogland, concentrating on her own blog, so don’t forget to go and visit her often!
As is so often the case, when one door closes another opens, and after the sad news of Steph's departure I have some good news! Steph certainly can’t be replaced but this is a two person blog so I’m delighted to announce a new face (but not new to most of you I’m sure!) to A Passion for Papertrey!
Amy Wanford...aka Aimes!
Over the past few months Steph and I have become good friends with Aimes, and actually had plans to invite her to design for the blog. I’m thrilled that she’ll now be doing more than that and will be my partner on here!
Aimes was one of the first stampers I ‘met’ online almost a year ago when we swapped stamped images – and I’m so pleased to now be able to call her a real friend (and, of course, a fellow Papertrey addict!). Her creativity and originality never ceases to amaze me and she certainly has had an audacious start to life here on the blog having just won Papertrey’s Guest Star Stamper award! If you haven’t seen her amazing entry check out her blog here and Nichole Heady’s post here.
I know all our blog readers will join me in thanking Steph for all she's done and wishing her well and also welcoming Aimes to our little corner of blogland!
While we're talking about changes I wanted to ask all our readers if there's anything else you'd like to see on this blog - it would be great to hear any ideas you have. Thanks once again for all your ongoing support - we're very blessed to have met so many wonderful fellow PTI fans!
A new challenge will be up later today!
