My time here at Paper Crafts is drawing to a close, and I’m sad to say that this is my last blog post.

I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to learn from the editors…they have taught me so much! I’ve learned not only about the card making business and this creative field, but also how to effectively and efficiently run a successful magazine. Here is my summary of the wonderful (and way too short-lived!) time I have spent here:

  • I’ve been so fortunate in that each member of the Paper Crafts team has been so helpful in teaching me the inner works of a magazine. They’ve all been willing to let me follow them around and ask questions specific to their job, and have also been willing to answer my constant questions! 
  • The ins and outs of the magazine world are so exciting! The fun meetings, the card selection process, and even returning the accepted cards have been an adventure!
  • This office simply exudes creativity, and has motivated me even more to fulfill my dream of working for a magazine!
  • The contributions people make to this magazine never ceases to amaze me. Every day I saw a new card or craft that was absolutely stunning!
  • I have become a huge fan of card making! I’m determined to keep up on the newest trends and embrace this new hobby!

Speaking of embracing my new favorite hobby, I want to thank you, our supportive readers, for the wonderful ideas you left on my last blog! I asked for any advice or ideas for using paper crafts in my wedding, and the response was overwhelming! I read so many great ideas and I will be using many of them. As promised, we have selected two winners!
