Hi Team! Great work last week during our misting week! Be sure to rest up & take your vitamins as we’ll be back with more intensive training & inspiration for ‘buttons week’ up next, and I know you want to be ready!!
Meanwhile, I had a few industry snippets & scraps to share with you during today’s assembly here in the gym for those of you who like to stay ‘in the know….’
Changes at Paper Crafts Magazine & Creating Keepsakes Magazine
I first shared this info with you via Facebook here, but I wanted to quickly recap for those who may have missed it. Paper Crafts Magazine and Creating Keepsakes Magazine are both part of the same media publishing family. Last week, both publications announced that their editorial teams are realigning. As such, Jennifer Schaerer is taking on the Editor-in-Chief role for both publications with Kerri Miller taking on the Managing Editor role for both. The Creative Editorial teams for each magazine will continue to operate separately. These changes mean that Creating Keepsakes is saying goodbye to my good friend and it’s Editor-in-Chief of 3 years, Jennafer Marten, as well as its managing editor, Lara Penrod.
I will certainly miss working with Jennafer at CK, but I have a feeling we’ll be seeing her happy face at Winter CHA in some other role or capacity — or at least I hope we do! Meanwhile, I look forward to getting to know Jennifer & Kerri better and I support whatever changes are necessary to keep these fabulous industry publications going strong!
