Happy Mail-Less

again.

It's okay. I'm brushing it off like dust on the shoulder. I'd be lying if I said I didn't care but I'll be okay because I'm still very happy and thankful for the opportunities given to me thus far in this crazy, competitive industry. But I will be taking a break from submitting for teams. My focus will be more on establishing my current roles and publications.

Want to see the cards I sent in for the Bella call? I still love them and am happy to share with you all.






and my favorite...


I love being able to showcase what you can do with paper. Each card showcases something I do with my projects. Use of the Silhouette, handmade flowers and some cutting. I'll always be a huge fan of Bella Blvd! Can't get rid of me that easily. :)

hugs,
Melissa

These are awesome Melissa!!!! So sorry you didn't get a happy email. :( You would have been awesome on that team! (It's hard...I know! Been there a million times.)

Your cards look amazing. I know that feeling too. I've been waiting and hoping to hear from Basic Grey. I ultimately decided not to try for Bella, though I made some projects for them. I am certain that the right fit will come along for both of us.

Those are great Melissa! Your work is amazing and don't let rejection from a design team throw you off your game.

Your cards are just gorgeous, Melissa! Really unique and individual and just so darn pretty. Sorry you didn't get your happy email. It's just incredibly tough out there. You're fabulous, though....always have been, always will be. :)
