I sincerely hope this note finds you all happy and outside! It's kinda hard not to gloat now that we have finally gotten into full swing with our Sonoran Desert autumn and winter weather. So gorgeous!
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation as well with Thanksgiving just a couple days out. I am so grateful for all the community and creative energy we share in this Collective. It's been an amazing process to see the group start to grow and develop - we are still working on refining our style and personality and will continue with that as we move into the new year. The personal connections and professional camaraderie have been such a joy. And the involvement and support from members is priceless. Thank you everyone! XOXO
We've been holding our Meet-Ups for a while now and have some ideas in the works for the new year coming up. While it's pretty tough to meet everyone's needs all the time, we definitely strive to improve and grow to do the best job that we can. On a shoe-string budget.
I hope you'll take 2-minutes to respond to our survey, if you have not already done so. This survey will close on the 29th, so that we can compile the responses and incorporate into our plans.
Please take a moment and share your thoughts. And, Thank You!
