I remember just about every one of these projects, & actually CASED some! I love PTI, and I so love your work. I wish you & your family the best for 2014!

I need to be honest, the past few years I have been so intimidated by your work because it is so amazing. In 2013 after seeing one of your Make it Monday videos, where you broke down your process and took away a lot of the fear, I have been trying more shabby chic ideas. I am absolutely in LOVE with your style. I am still intimidated, but I really appreciate all of the eye candy and inspiration every month.

Melissa - your PTI release blog posts are the ones where I just sit back and say ahhhhh! While clean and simple projects are better suited to my busy schedule, I aspire to make projects like yours.

It was so nice to see your favs and read your comments. Your cards are amazing and showcase PTI stamps, dies and supplies in such a beautiful light. PTI wouldn't be the same w/o your creative genius. Your manner and style and the "love" you put into each project you craft is admirable and inspiring. So glad you are here for an eighth year and hope to see you for many more years to come. Huggles, Gabby
