Becky Higgins announced yesterday on her blog that yesterday, September 15, 2009, was her last day at Creating Keepsakes! She says on her blog,
"After 12 years with the company, I have chosen to resign as an employee of CK. I am doing this with nothing but the best feelings. It's just the right time for me to step down and move forward. I am so grateful for the ride that I've had and want to assure you that ride is not over. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not dying. I'm not quitting this hobby. I'm not running away. I'm totally here. (And so is CK. I wish them all the best!)"
Becky then goes on to summarize her career at CK, which is an interesting read. You can check out her entire post here.
CK Editor, Jennafer Martin, had this to say to Scrapbook Update's Nancy Nally when asked about Becky's departure:
"Becky Higgins has been a strong creative force for Creating Keepsakes for 12 of our 13 years, and we're incredibly thankful for the countless pages, sketches, fonts and more that she's contributed over the years that have helped make Creating Keepsakes so inspiring for our readers. While we're sad to see her depart from the magazine as an employee, we wish her the best and look forward to working with her in the future as a contributor. The CK team will be hosting a farewell tribute on our blog at www.creatingkeepsakesblog.com Thursday the 17th, and we invite you to join us in letting Becky know how much her designs have inspired us and how much we wish her well."
I know we all look forward to seeing what Becky does next!
