DT Call Outcome

Good Morning Everyone,
If you are a follower of this blog, you have probably seen the DT Call announcement I made on April, 26th. The DT Call closed Saturday last week and the response has been nothing short of incredible. For one available position on the team I have received 43 applications! 

I can’t even begin to tell you how much this means to me; I’m truly amazed by how many crafters have expressed their interest in joining the team, and their desire to work with the products and brands that I am myself so passionate about. It makes me immensely proud of what I have achieved with the LLC store, but I also know that the store is what it is today only because of the support of my loyal customers and my talented DT members, who do an outstanding job of promoting LLC's products. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude; thank you all so very much! 

A special thank you to the applicants; I’ve been in your shoes, and I know that applying for a DT position can be a scary and nerve-racking experience, so I thank you for courage.

The LLC team is a small team, and it is my choice to keep it small; it makes the communication so much easier and it enables me to better understand the different DT members’ preferences and styles. Unfortunately though, it also implies that when doing DT calls, a larger number of applicants will receive disappointing news. 

When I opened the store 2 years ago there were 6 including myself on the DT. After 6 month I expanded the team with one member, so we were 7. Another 6 months down the line, I stepped down from the team myself, thereby making space for one more DT Member. After careful consideration, I have decided to expand the team once again with one more member, bringing it to 8 DT members. 

There are many things to consider when selecting new DT members, but for me it has always been important to find the right mix of crafters, making up a versatile team. Even though I allowed myself the benefit of choosing two new members, this has not been an easy decision with so many talented crafters applying. But I better cut to the chase now….by the way; well done if you read all the way down here :-)

I hope you will help me welcoming the two new LLC DT Members:
Vicky Pass from the UK and Diana DeeDee Adamski from Germany!
