A feeling of gratitude...

Usually I pick a theme and then go from there when I do my posts.

But this morning, I woke up with the thought of being *blessed* on my mind.

And one of the blessings I have had is being a member of this wonderful team.

And, if it were not for the three wonderful women who lead this team, then I really don't think it would be the wonderful team it is...just another in a series of many.

It is because of these three women that the team IS the team it is.

So, I thought I would spotlight their shoppes today, in appreciation for all the hard work and effort they put into the team, so that we as members may come together and do what we love.

First up is Brenda Griffith...owner and leader of the Folkart and Primitives Team.

It is her vision that brought the team into being. 
 I have never, on all my other teams, met someone so willing and generous to help others with the success of their own businesses.  
She is more than willing to share what she has learned through the years, if she thinks it will help others succeed.  
I really think that this sense of caring and sharing is what makes this the best team on the internet, because that caring and sharing principle runs throughout the whole team.

Brenda has two fabulous co-leaders. 
The first I am going to mention is Cynthia Chapman of Cynzplace.  

She is just a sweet individual and always so gracious.  
If you have a question, and she doesn't know the answer, she will find it out for you.  
And like her fellow co-leaders, I feel is the reason why this group is the group it is.

Brendas second co-leader is Cindi Toth of Cozy Expressions.

She, as the others are, is a very gracious and helpful person.
I believe that the team works because of the three leaders it has, and that the dynamic would not be the same without them. 
 Cindi adds so much to that dynamic, and keeps it cohesive and strong.
All three of these woman are sweet, diplomatic, and have a more than exceptional sense of humor.

So, basically, if not for these three woman, the Folkart and Primitives Team on etsy would not be the team it is today...a group of talented, loyal, funny, and blessed individuals.

So, thank you Brenda, Cynthia, and Cindi for all the hardwork and dedication you put forward for the team.  Whether we, as members, tell you or are VERY much appreciated and loved.

At least I think so anyways :)
