Saying goodbye to 13arts...

Good morning! 

It is with a very heavy heart I say goodbye to one of my most favourite all time manufacturers 13arts. The time has come to move on to other things .... Some new Design Teams unfortunately clashed and something had to give :( 

All I want to say is a HUGE thank you to Aida who I can now call a friend for having the faith in me from the start and keeping me on as long as she did. She  just a wonderful person ... A genuine , soft person . And she is soooo much like me in sooo many ways and she is someone I wish did not live on the other side of the world .   
Sometimes I look back at my early work there and I cringe lol But Aida always encouraged me and always supported me and just like every other human on earth, I loved the positive reinforcement. 

I love everything about 13arts.... The product, the Design Team, the happy and easy environment. It's a dream. Aida was so very generous. She would send me things to play with and I created my very best work while on this team.  Everything I created just came together effortlessly...  I always felt that my mixed media 'style' evolved with each month I was on this Design Team. I remember the first box I received ages ago was full of mists, art mediums etc and I had no idea what to do.. Now, 1 and a half years later 13arts is my go to manufacturer for almost every piece of work I create. I will forever cherish the time spent there and will always enjoy using their products. I enjoyed every moment there and I encourage you all to play along at their challenges and apply for their DT calls... It is one of the best places to be at! 

So goodbye for now my lovely 13arts ...

  8. Every end does lead to a new opening. Kudos for soldiering on, even on such a drastic, yet most probably necessary move. There are bound to be lots of venues that will open up, as online presence is always about expansion.
