Thank you for stopping by today! What better way to explain what I want to share with you today, than by using the words of the person I am here to celebrate with today:
From Toiny, the owner of theStudio:
Three years ago an email came across my desk, Julie O. (original owner of our site) was stepping down and needed a replacement. I thought “I can do this! Pick me!” And pick me she did.
This April marks my three-year anniversary as owner of theStudio. I cannot begin to describe the joy this little company has brought me. My first year was filled with struggle and learning, so incredibly much learning. Until I took the reins in hand, I had no idea the work behind a site the size of theStudio. I’m so grateful to all my mentors, their patience especially, as I learned the different softwares behind each portion of the site and the terminology needed to ask for help. Who knew asking for help could be so hard if you don’t know the right words?
My second year I worked hard to increase our SEO and instituted a Quality Control team . My third year saw big growth, two server upgrades and multiple improvements in all areas of the site. Now, at the start of year four even more improvements and upgrades are in store. I have found my groove and I am excited to bring a better, stronger, comprehensive site to all of you!
I am even more excited to kick off year four with a big Celebration. All April we are dedicating ourselves to bringing extra fun, extra excitement, extra challenges and extra sales. For the first time, we will have 50% Off Sundays starting now. We will continue to have Deal of the Day at 70% Off, and our site will be 33% Off, both Personal and Commercial¸ all of April.
A huge part of our success in the last three years is because of you. You have stuck with us through site outages, downtime, upgrades and changes. I have received countless emails of encouragement, support, praise and, yes, even criticism. All of your efforts and continued patronage are what makes theStudio so wonderful. As a thank you, the Design Team has put together a fabulous Blog Hop filled with coordinating mini kits. You can start the Hop HERE, opens officially on April 1st, and work your way to collecting an awesome, free, mega kit by days end. Please give all our Designers through Sunday to get their mini’s up. (Please scroll to the end of this post for the complete list of your Blog Stops!)
