the end of an orange-handled era.

Fiskars copy

In May 2008, my friend May Flaum sent me a box o' product to play with from Fiskars and Fiskars Brands (back then, it was Heidi Grace, Cloud 9 Designs, and Lil Davis Designs). A month later, she gave me a little heads up that Stephenie Hamen might be contacting me about a design team position. On July 1, 2008, I officially joined the team. 

Today, I submitted my final assignments to Stephenie. It has been a crazy creative journey, filled with hundreds of assignments, countless punches, and many, many late night photo sessions. It's the end of an orange-handled era. I'm so grateful for the experience, for the opportunity to work with such an amazing company, and for Stephenie's support & friendship. This is a good thing, this's another step forward

I often forget/neglect to post my Fiskars projects here. I'm going to try to do a better job of that this year! This article is a great kick-off to all of the creative goals that you may have set for yourself...


Check out the article here, and then come back & leave a comment telling me about at least ONE creative project that you'll be working on this year. I'll choose one winner at random on Sunday, January 13th (giveaway will close at midnight EST on 1/12) to win an assortment of some of my favorite Fiskars tools. 

WINNER!!! Congrats to Leslie! Please email your info - katrina(at)katrinasimeck(dot)com.

I too am beginning Project Life as a first-timer:) Not sure yet if I will do weekly or random but I do like the format and the fact that the Project Life format forces me to slow down and notice my own life more:)
