It is always good to stop and say THANKS!

Tagged , | 12 Comments


As you know by now, Wednesday is my day to post.  It is a real treat for me because I get to choose what to show you.  And it takes a little bit of my time, because I also have to do it in three languages (English, Spanish and French) since I want to stay true to one of the dreams I had when I first started KIKI ART.  Which is to reach as many people as I can so, if they don’t know about Scrapbooking, they can start discovering how wonderful it is and if they do know about it, they can explore new possibilities and rediscover their child within.

Starting a company from scratch in a foreign land was and still is a wonderful challenge for me.  Everyday I am learning something new about the hobby, about the business, about the language, about designing, about what people like and what they don’t like, about our Culture of Scrapbooking in different parts of the world, about human nature, about so many other things… but the thing that I value the most is meeting persons that over a short period of time have become friends and almost like sisters to me.

Kiki Art is growing and getting closer to have its first birthday this summer.  The journey has just begun and there is a lot to improve on my part (I have taken note of all the comments and advice generously given to me by many of you) and I am happy to say that things are going great… THANK YOU for liking the designs, the funtapes, the glittered chipboards shapes and the other things that you have seen from Kiki Art in its first year… you will love what is coming next because it has been created with what you have asked for in mind!  I have made a lot of efforts and sacrifices to get here, but absolutely nothing would have been possible without you, the KIKI ART fans, and the KIKI ART Design teams.  That is why next week… it will be dedicated to thank you, Kiki Art followers. But today is dedicated to the KIKI ART design team members…  They are human beings who are tolerant to accept the differences that come up in discussions on our mailing list and private forum, generous to share their knowledge with the “newbies”, patience to put up with all my crazy ideas and my many flaws, solidary to care about the personal problems many of us experienced since we met, wonderfully creative to inspire you everyday through their creations.  Just like many of you, they are mothers, daughters, girlfriends, grandmothers… all busy women who have a home to take care of and work to worry about but they still make the effort to MAKE the time to accomplish what they like: CREATE.




PS: (I want to share with you a little sneak peek of a Kiki Art 2010 Summer collection that will be exclusively offered in a UK magazine to be released this July… let me know what you think)
