Moxie Fab Thanks! Blog Hop



There have been so many changes, over the years, in the paper crafting industry. I have to admit, I'm not a fan of many of the recent ones. Companies, people, trends, they've come and gone. But, one constant has been Cath Edvalson. I first met Cath when she emailed me for an assignment for Paper Crafts Magazine. I was over the moon excited! For several years, I worked closely with Cath and the PC crew. Cath was always supportive, encouraging and fun. I truly enjoyed all of our interactions. I was lucky enough to have met her in person, several times, as well. She is as sweet and personable in real life as she is online. When Cath left her creative editor position at PC, I was sad, but excited to know that she'd still be around guiding us through the trends of the day on Moxie Fab World. Now, Cath  is moving on again. Her presence in the paper crafting world will be sorely missed! I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. When she announced her 'retirement' hundreds of crafters pulled together in order to honor her. That says a lot. She is an amazing person. I know she has some wonderful things ahead of her.

I created this card today for Cath as a way to say thank you. Thank you for being an inspiration and thank you for sharing your creativity with us.


I made a little vellum sequin pocket and embellished it with Crate Paper chipboard, resin and stickers.

You should have come here from Irit Shalom. Your next stop will be at Michele Gross' blog. If you missed anyone along the way, start with the Moxie Fab World Blog and hop along. Or use the links below for easy access.

I am truly honored to be one of the many who are paying tribute to an amazing lady today. Thanks so much for stopping by and helping me celebrate my friend.

Cath, you truly are Moxie Fab! ♥
