Hello Papercrafter’s Corner Friends! It’s almost Springtime and you know what that means, right?
✿ It’s time for growth and renewal✿
That has been especially true here at PaperCrafter’s Corner. We’ve been quietly focusing on new beginnings behind the scenes!
Big Changes at PCC
Friend, you and the rest of the PaperCrafter’s Corner papercrafting community have been a huge part of my life for the past 3 1/2 years. Can you believe I started PaperCrafter’s Corner in June 2009?
Wow. Since then, the ups, downs, changes, expansions and learning experiences have been life changing.
THANK YOU for being part of me & my life. Thank you for helping me create such a dynamic, positive and important resource for papercrafters!
It’s time for a new “head PCC cheerleader” to take over! It’s time for a new leader to bring her energy, excitement, scrapbook industry experience & business savvy to PaperCrafter’s Corner.
Stephanie Hackney, an industry columnist and passionate paper crafter, is taking over PaperCrafter’s Corner! Stephanie and I have known each other both professionally and personally for several years and I feel very comfortable handing over the care and feeding of my ‘baby” to her as I move on to a new life chapter.
She has tons of ideas to enhance the site for you and to provide you with more of the papercrafting information, inspiration and entertainment you love. In fact, if you’ve been reading our Facebook posts and checking out our pins over the last couple weeks, you’ve seen her in action already.
Stephanie is super excited to get to know all of you and to bring even more cool stuff to the PaperCrafter’s Corner community.
“Since the very beginning, I have admired Susan’s dedication to building such a valuable resource for papercrafters. It has been so fun to see her take her idea and bring it to life! She has worked tirelessly to ensure that visitors to the PaperCrafter’s Corner site (and associated social media pages) were always presented with valuable content, a positive experience, and a reason to return again and again. I know she has informed and entertained me, a passionate papercrafting addict and long-time industry participant.
I intend to expand the PaperCrafter’s Corner offering by making necessary behind-the-scenes changes and enhancements (check the faster load speed on our site pages!) and adding both new functionality and new information based largely on what the PaperCrafter’s Corner community tells me it wants (yes, this is YOUR chance to make your voice heard – let me know what YOU want to find at PCC!). For you, our paper crafters extraordinaire, there will be more information, more entertainment, more inspiration and, hopefully, even more fun than what you’ve already experienced as a PaperCrafter’s Corner supporter! It is my goal to build on what Susan started and make the PaperCrafters’ Corner offering even better!”
As you can imagine, handing over something I’ve poured my heart and soul into was no easy decision. But it was time. And, I do believe PaperCrafter’s Corner is in good hands! I look forward to seeing PCC grow and prosper further. I can’t wait to see where Stephanie takes you!
So, what will I be doing now?
I have taken on a wonderful new challenge as the Director of Marketing for OfficeZilla.com, an office supplies etailer with great prices & a fun, quirky attitude! Yes, all of the things I learned over the years from running PaperCrafter’s Corner are proving invaluable in my new career at OfficeZilla. For example, just part of my new duties include managing the wacky OfficeZilla blog, the OZ facebook page, and orchestrating promotions with industry product companies. I’d say PCC equipped me pretty well for this and more, wouldn’t you? Just wait till I try to get my new co-workers to pose for pix so I can scrapbook about my career change! LOL
Thank you again for everything you guys have done for me. It has been an amazing experience. This industry has provided so much joy for me and for so many others and it’s all because of the amazing people involved in it, people like you.
I know you will support Stephanie and PaperCrafter’s Corner going forward! She’s shared a few of her plans with me and I think you guys are gonna be thrilled!
Be sure to stay tuned to see the great things she has up her sleeve…
