As you may have noticed, I've been staying in the background at CY for the last little while. It's for a rather exciting reason! I have started my own handbag, tote, etc sewing business called "No No’s Sew Hip Creations." I have been asked by a local market to sell my bags and I am doing very well. The responses to my designs and colors are amazing, which is what I had hoped for. This new venture has been a dream of mine for a very long time. Now it is my passion. I have learned much from scrapbooking in the past 7 years in terms of design principles, color coordination, the value of sketching etc.. All of these are critical elements of designing and creating a bag/tote. So, the time has come to pass the Creatively Yours torch to my dear friend and partner Ali so I can focus all my energy on my business, family and friends. I will however still be a frequent Guest Designer (that is if Ali will have me, LOL). I offered the Creatively Yours Sketch Blog to my dear friend/partner Ali because she has so much talent in sketching, writing and much more. And she graciously accepted. I know CY will be in good hands with Ali. I will miss all your wonderful comments and beautiful work. Thank you for making my sketches look good with all of your wonderful interpretations. I wish the best for all of you and I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful interpretations of Ali's wonderful sketches.
Your friend and CY Sketch Artist
