I have some really exciting news to share this Monday morning........
......I made it to the Unity Stamp Co Design Team!
It was a loooong wait ..but so worth it !
Usually, if and when I do apply for a design team call ... (I don't apply to too many since I don't like to take on more than I can deliver and kill my creativity in the process, so I restrain and limit myself to very few.) ...but when I do apply it's usually last minute, like a day or 2 before the deadline and that's because I am not the kind who can wait for results!
But when I saw the Unity call, I plunged head on not wasting a single moment and that was almost like a month ago,which also meant that I had to wait now for a month to know if I made it or not..thankfully Feb was a bit short but still.....!
March 13th ...the D day finally rolled around! I stayed awake the previous night until 12 to see if there was a midnight post on the Unity blog...nope...ok 'maybe first thing tomorrow' I said and wished myself luck and 'tried to sleep'!
Woke up bright and early and checked ..and checked.... and refreshed.. and refreshed...no.. nay.. nothing?
I had not received an acceptance mail which just confirmed my fear that I did not make it! I moped around, drank extra cups of tea to soothe my chattering mind, consoled myself a bit that 'there was always a next time' and finally let it go with an.. 'at least I tried' !
..and let me tell you that the 'tea' and 'tried' part do not really help much !
So 13th went by with a note by Angela, the owner of Unity and the final decision maker..so to speak.. that the she would be back soon with the new DT post...oh well... then the choices had been made and I did not make it ..done ..time to step out and leave the computer alone so that the refresher can take a break!
14th Sat morning- shared with hubs and he said who knows, they have not annouced on the blog yet, maybe you still have a chance...hmmnn maybe! positive thinking!
14th Sat night- no announcement..no mail ... definitely out of the running ..good night!
15th Sunday morning..still thinking about it but telling my brain not to think about it anymore!
15th Sunday late afternooon- done with lunch, working with some new stamps and hear a ping ...new mail...friend request - Facebook..Angela......what! ...calm down !.... it's just a friend request..nothing more...confirm request..go to see the Unity page...scroll down ..scroll...see my work there alongside an announcement !
...Welcome Swarup...our new DT member!!
WOW....what ...when and why did I miss this and all this time it never occurred to me that she would have perhaps announced the new DT on Facebook and I kept checking the blog and my mail instead...three whole days! She had been announcing the names one by one since 13th as promised and I was the last one and that was done on Sunday morning!
Was I glad to see my name?...you bet!
So well there we go..my short ..well not so short.... story about me getting on board Unity Design Team! That's why I said earlier the wait was so so SO worth it!
Thank you so very much Angela, it's truly an honor to be a part of this company and work among the super talented girls there! I hope to do my best!
Stamps-Unity- It's all good
Before I let you go, here is a card using Unity stamps..of course!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my excitement..hope I did not lose you with my super long story!
Have a wonderful week ahead!
