Changes coming to H2H in 2013!

Our last challenge of the year will be mid-December and then another term of DT members will come to a close. We will start our new year up with a new team and new challenges but there will also be another BIG change!

As of the end of this year, I will be "retiring" from Heart 2 Heart Challenges. I ended 12 years as a consultant with CTMH in October and I am ready to move forward and work on some other oppoortunities in my life. Although it will be sad for me to leave the H2H family that has grown over the past few years, the good news is that H2H will have a new leadership team that will keep the challenges going in full force!

Haley Dyer will be taking over my spot and Shirley Ross will be her co-captain :) I will remain behind the scenes for awhile helping these ladies in any capacity that I can while they get comfortable with their new responsibilities. Of course, there will be a new team of designers joining them as well and the DT gals are always incredibly helpful! So I am confident that Heart to Heart will continue to be the best place for CTMH challenges in 2013!

Thank you to everyone who participates with our challenges. We hope the inspiration found here every week keeps your creative spirit alive and pushes you in new directions!

May you find joy on your newly chosen path. I haven't been around H2H that long but I have truly enjoyed the challenges and the camaraderie that is found at this site. I know you have "passed the flame" to two very capable ladies who will do a terrific job.
Enjoy your "retirement" - you have definitely earned it :)

You will be missed. I'm very grateful for what you've done while running H2H, the kindness you showed during my term on the DT, and I'm even more grateful that you are allowing someone else to run H2H so that the inspiration for CTMH can continue. Best wishes on your future endeavors.
