A Year in Review - Cassandra

Just a quick story,

I don't know if I was so excited to have Cassandra, or felt like I should test what kind of limits a team member had, because instead of assigning Cassandra the standard number of posts, I put her on almost every post. She was such a trooper. She asked once if I made a mistake and I said no, these are the ones I want you to do. Then she mentioned it again in September when I assigned her 3 posts for the month. As I looked at it, I had added her to almost all of them. I am so glad she embraced the challenge and patiently pointed out to me what was happening, but never quit. Instead she lent a hand, offered some assistance on fixing the schedule while updating the challenge blog templates to make them faster and easier to fill in. Cass has become a very key team member to Emerald Creek and for me personally. I hope we can make her feel valued and appreciated, so she continues to inspire all of us.



Since I was fortunate to have joined the Emerald Creek Design Team, the later half of 2016 has just flown by. It has been an exciting and embossed filled seven months of Emerald Creek goodness.

Today, I am sharing with you a recap of all my 2016 Emerald Creek Dares projects. It is my fervent hope that they bring some measure of pleasure and some inspiration to all you Emerald Creek Dares fans out there. Click on any of the links or photos below to learn more about each project.

Cassie, Thank you for everything you have done since you started. As I re-visited each of these creations, I am in awe of all you have done. You really helped put a focus on the Emerald Creek products, while introducing flairs of creativity. I am so excited to have you and I am curious to see what you do with the new release products for January. These challenges and posts are better because of you and I can't say enough. I am excited you will be at CHA and accepted the challenge to teach classes on the floor for me.
So much love and admiration for who you are, Sincerely Kim.
