Still time to apply for our 2018 DT CALL!

  *** Please Note:  Our challenges will resume Feb. 9st ***

I have had questions and upon answering questions, I have come across a few of you (You know who you are), that are interested in applying but you do not feel that your work is as good as the others on the team! OH that makes me mad every time I hear it!!! Please do NOT compare your work to anyone else's. You are unique! You are set apart from the others. You have so much to offer this design team and what I LOVE the most about having DT Calls, is the amazing & diverse designers that I am blessed to get to interact with and work with. Please people!!! Do NOT stop yourself from applying just because you are hard on yourself. We are all our worst critics!! I ACCEPT EVERYONE! We all have something to bring to the table and to offer the team, no matter if you are a newbie or a veteran. Don't judge yourself please! Creating is supposed to be fun, relaxing and free. If you want to just be.. than apply! ;)
I am going to extend the DT Call for a few more days for those of you who are hesitant .. maybe today will be the day that I get through to you and you take that leap! I sure hope you do! ;)


Hello friends!

Well the time has come once again! I am looking to add at least 4 new designers to the awesome team that I am proud to work with every week. Most of the designers on my team have been with me for 2 & 3 years now and we have formed a little family. There is nothing as precious as the friendships we form in this industry.

Have you been wanting to be on a design team but never try out because you think that your work is not "good" enough? I know that many of you are sitting there answering this question with a "yes, thats me"! I am looking for designers who are not afraid to take a leap and will just dive right on in, feet first! No need to be worried or judgmental on your work. If you want to be on my design team, take the leap and let me see what you have! Now keep in mind, I am simple and very laid back. I welcome ALL levels of crafters to try out and I want you to know that ALL levels of crafters have the same advantage of being chosen. I am not going to single out "friends" or people that are "popular" for my design team. I play fair and here is what I am looking for in you first.....

  1. You must have a huge passion for crafting! :)
  2. You have to be outgoing, down to earth, sociable, creative, enthusiastic and human! :)
  3. You should not be afraid to ask questions :)
  4. Lastly, you should always look to have fun :)
  5. You do not need any prior DT Experience!

If you have all of those things...
then here is what I want you to do.

TRY OUT!! Yes GUYS are welcome!!
