I met the editor Emi Kume at the last Craft & Hobby Assoc. (CHA) trade show this past summer in Chicago. Actually we knew each other beforehand through a few emails. She has an online store that one of my Japanese scrapbooking students told me about a few years ago when I lived in the NY/NJ area. SO I have known Emi-san for years! LOL!! Right, Emi? Heehee... Anyways, she is a TERRIFIC person and I am SO HAPPY to FINALLY MEET HER FACE-TO-FACE!!!
Anyway, a few weeks later she asked if I would like to be involved with an article covering design teams..how they work, how to apply and what the job entails. I gave her information about my job as a design team member for TaDa Creative Studios and sent samples of my work with TaDa.
So thank you, Emi, for letting me a part of your FABULOUS MAGAZINE!! As I told her, "LoveMemo" is my Japanese textbook! LOL!! It's the only thing that will motivate me to read ANYTHING Japanese....sorry, mom!
Also for my scrapping friends in Japan, "LoveMemo" is having its first design team (scrappers in Japan only) so if you are interested, GO FOR IT!! Details are in the magazine.
