Title: 10/01/13 It's not good-bye, it's see you later! jungrrl moving on from Craftster
Post by: jungrrl on October 01, 2013 11:45:17 AM
Is this news? I think so. Maybe you do, too?

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will soon be leaving my job here at Craftster. Actually, my last day will be this Friday.  :-[

On Monday, I'll be starting my new position with the one and only Renegade Craft Fair (http://www.renegadecraft.com) as their operations manager. I'll be helping run all the day to day stuff and going to all of the fairs, so please feel free to say hi if you find yourself there!!

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to participate on Craftster still although I will stay on as a global moderator. I think once I get past the holiday fair season I'll start peeking my nose back in. (I do have plans to help run another FOC Second Chance swap in January!) Maybe not working on Craftster all day every day will mean I have more time to join discussions in the community and post some projects! A girl can dream, yes?  ;)

Honestly, I've sort of been putting off getting all my feelings about this down into words. Craftster has been my home on the internet for over 9 years and my job/the majority of my waking life for over 5. I love this community more than I could ever put into words and it's helped me become the person I am today. All of the absolutely jaw-dropping creations, all of the shared knowledge, all of the friendliness and general community spirit that comes from everyone here just makes this my absolute favorite place to be. I'm not sure how I'll cope not being here all the time! I know I will miss helping make this great community run as smoothly as possible but I'm very excited at this new chapter ahead of me.

Aaaaand now I have to really keep myself from tearing up. See what you guys do to me?  :-* :-*

Unfortunately I don't seem to have ANY pictures with just me and sweets and leah, but I'll leave you with a photo of a lot of us moderators at our mod meet-up in Boston in 2008, which is where I was offered this amazing job. (I'm the one with the flash of pink hair!)

I am so happy that we met through Crafster, that you have allowed me to become one of your besties. We have shared so much in the past years and I know that won't change. We expect to hear about all your adventures with Renegade.

Good luck to you, lady, but never good-bye.  :-*

you've always been one crafster member who sticks out in my mind, i joined craftster nearly a decade ago (april 2004, wow time flies!!), and you're very much an inspiration!

good luck with renegade and all of your future endeavors!!! :)

Although I've been a member of Craftster for some time, I was only able to get on rarely until recently (due to time constraints).  Regardless, your name was one of the most recognizable to me for all of the awesomeness attached to it.  I hope you love your new position and it is everything you hoped for!

Wow! I'm so glad I finally logged on, and clicked on the first image I saw.  :) Needless to say, jungrrl, you have a special place in my crafty heart and I think I'm going to have to trek to another Renegade just to wish you well in this new endeavor. You have rocked, you currently rock, and will continue to rock, going from one dream-job to a new dream-job. I'm excited for you!  :-*
