Team Authentique!


About a year ago, I was shopping & cropping at my local Archiver's store with a bunch of friends. Little did I know that my spending behavior that day would later change my life! 

As I was shopping, I spotted the most BEAUTIFUL paper! It was by a new company that I had never heard of called Authentique. I asked my friend if she had ever seen or used their products, and of coarse she had, so she told me a little story about them, etc. I had to grab up some of their paper, so I decided to start with a little 6x6 pad and some of the noteables, tabloids, icons, and excerpts from the  Blissful Collection. I'm not a vintage kind of gal, but something about this paper really inspired me to change my views on vintage.

I had tried out for a few design teams at that point and had been rejected, so I was really unsure about trying out when I saw the Authentique DT call. At the last minute, I decided to send over my application and crafty resume, which at that point, wasn't much. A few days later I got the most awesome e-mail! I had been accepted to the team! I will never forget the day that the UPS driver delivered my very first package of Authentique goodies. I sat and started in awe at all of the beautiful papers. I literally did not want to cut them up, but I knew at some point, I would have to. 

In April we transitioned over to a smaller design team and I started helping out as Coordinator. It was the least I could do for a company that I love and feel so much passion for the product and the people who work there. I've been doing a lot of cheer-leading for the Authentique DT over the past year, the girls on the team are absolutely fabulous. I really couldn't ask to be surrounded by a better group of people! Not to mention the folks on Team Authentique out in Utah, Samantha, Bret, Melodee, David, etc. All just wonderful people to work with! 

A few weeks ago Samantha called and asked me if I would like to continue helping out with the Design Team and take on responsibilities of their Social Media and be an "official" member of team Authentique. Well, that was a no-brainier! To be offered an opportunity to "work" from my home doing what I love is like a dream come true for me. Not to mention, I still get to play with lots of pretty paper! 

Long story short, I am now "officially" a part of Team Authentique. You can see the full announcement HERE on the Authentique blog. You will want to check it out, we also added 3 new super talented ladies to the team!
