The E-Team's Farewell Blog Hop

eclectic Paperie is evolving (and we are close to some big announcements). Unfortunately, as part of these changes, this will be the last E-Team blog hop.

When the E-Team was created, I wanted a creative, brilliant, reckless group of women who would routinely knock our socks off. They are and they did. Not only did they dazzle us, they also all became dear friends. So I salute Sherry Cheever, Linda Ledbetter, Micki Harper, Broni Holcombe and Starla Nelson for everything that makes you awesome!

I'm excited to share a terrific E-Team Blog hop today. The E-Team looked to Disney for inspiration. Just wait till you see what they created.

The E-Team is retiring after this Disney-inspired blog hop. Please visit each E-Team participant on her blog to see what she created. 
  • There will be a random winner from each blog. Different eP goodies from each E-Team blog team member. You have from today until Sunday, July 1st to leave a comment. 
  • Winners will be announced on the eP blog Tuesday, July 3rd.  
  • Leave a comment on this blog. Tell us what you liked most about The E-Team. There will be 2 lucky winners chosen there to win one of the famous eP Grab Boxes. You know those will be filled to the rim with lots of eP goodies. 

You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality. - Walt Disney

Enjoy this final E-Team Blog Hop. Be sure to mark their blogs and visit them often to see what they are up. They have many more chapters to write as their paper adventures continue on. 

Hope your day is filled with Pixie Dust!

eclectic Paperie is Looking for a New Loving Owner

Dear eP Nation,

For the last five years I've been managing eclectic Paperie(eP). Interacting with customers and participating in the paper crafting community helped provide for my family, gave me something to be passionate about, and kept me sane as my two daughters grew. 

It is time for me to move on. In many newsletters, I've mentioned my earlier career as a Disneyland manager. I left Disneyland when my second daughter was born. The thing is, I really loved working at Disneyland. I've recently had an opportunity to return and I've decided to take it. That's right, I'm going back to the Happiest Place on Earth.

As a result, it is time for me to move on from the eclectic Paperie. I'm speaking with several potential buyers for this business. If you, or someone you know is interested, please let me know. This online store has operated for five years and has a stellar reputation in the paper crafting community. Moreover, eP contains bits of my heart and soul. Unless I find the right buyer, I will simply close it. 

This doesn't mean I'm leaving you all completely. Indeed, I suspect I'm going to have more time for crafting once this transition is complete than I've had in many years.

Stay tuned as I work with new owners or (possibly) run the greatest sale ever to clear out merchandise (or both). THANK YOU all for your patronage and support over the years. Most importantly, thank you all for your love and friendship.
