After joining with us practically at the beginning, Brooke has decided she needs to take a break from designing. While we completely understand the need to refocus, we will miss her very much! Here's a little note from her:
So I'm changing things around, as life has a way of doing that to a person.
I prayed A LOT about this decision...
Digital scrapbooking design and photography slowly became more than hobbies the last few years -- making a little income from them -- however, I have to tone them BOTH back to hobby status... for now.
I still madly love and adore Pixel Scrapper! I feel a huge sense of "home" there - but I'm stepping down as a regular designer... for now. Maybe things will change in the future and my time will be shifted yet again - and allow for consistent time to digital scrapbook design. If that happens - Marisa and Jordan will be the FIRST people notified and just maybe they will have space for me. However, for now -- well, I guess I'd rather just look at it as taking a break
I'm sure, usually, when a designer isn't consistently designing, or leaves a company, there designs go with them. But I'm not going anywhere else and I'd like for my designs to be available. I just can't design new stuff right now.
So - just because I'm taking a break, doesn't mean my designs have to go away. I'd like to pay-it-forward and starting in 2014 - I want any income my designs on Pixel Scrapper bring in, to go to Marisa and Jordan.
I've already discussed with them - so everything is all set. Marisa and Jordan are two very kind and hard-working people - and I'm excited to see what 2014 brings for them and Pixel Scrapper!
Blessings to Brooke in her new journey! And thanks for being a great part of the Pixel Scrapper team.
