More Changes >> A Sad Goodbye

I have been dreading writing this blog post for quite a while but knew that the day would eventually come and can't avoid it any longer. As sad as it is to write this, I am leaving my positions at Studio Calico. I have been working with SC since December 2008, which definitely makes this a hard goodbye! In this post I am sharing a glimpse into my journey with the company and also why it is time to say goodbye.

When I was first asked by April to guest design for Studio Calico, I was excited at the opportunity to work with their kits and create a few layouts. Little did I know what that first collaboration would turn into! Soon after that, I was asked to become a permanent member of their design team and I also accepted the position as kit & product photographer. I began the very detailed and important role of setting up and photographing the kits each month for the website, in addition to photographing new products for the shop. Not only did it allow my love for the kits and Studio Calico brand to grow, but it also allowed me to get to know the owners and employees of the company on a much more personal level. We have become quite close over the years and have spent many fun times not only working together, but having fun at events and tradeshows as well!! To say that I have felt like an integral part of the SC family (even though I work from home) is an understatement. They have been super generous, kind and supportive all along the way and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity I have had to work with them for so many years.

This is what my studio space has looked like for many days out of each month the past 5 1/2 years. My husband, children and I have all become accustomed to seeing this type of a "pretty" mess as I set up and photograph each of the kits. My kids come in and out all throughout the process and know to step around the set up so they don't bump it all and move anything out of place!

And here is the final image that you can see me setting up in the shot above! Taking all of the products each month and turning them into pretty photos can definitely be challenging but also very fun and rewarding as a photographer as well!

In addition to photographing the kits each month, I have enjoyed working with the supplies as part of the design team. After I take all of the pictures, I get to gather up the kits and create with all of the pretty things. Some months it is definitely hard to wait, because I want to just dive right in before I take the photos! It's hard to choose favorite layouts because I have literally made hundreds in my time with Studio Calico, so instead I picked a few at random to share with you and SC is sharing a few different ones on their blog too!

With the addition of our 6th baby coming soon, I have had this nagging feeling that I needed to step away from some of my work responsibilities and free up more time to be a mom. I know how fleeting those first few days, months and even years of a child's life pass by and I want to be able to cherish every single moment! Don't ge me wrong, I feel like I have been super blessed to work from home all these years so that I could enjoy time with all of my children and get things done while they nap etc., but 6 kids is a lot and I know that I will be even more busy than ever with my duties and responsibilities as a mother. There are only so many hours in a day and with the momentum and growth that my own brand is experiencing, something had to give. 

So it is with sadness that I make the announcement that I will not be designing or working as kit photographer for Studio Calico any longer. It will definitely be an emotional transition but I am also excited about the future and what lies ahead. I know that every time soemthing ends, something amazing begins and I can only move forward with a positive outlook on the future. I am beyond excited for lots of snuggling with this new baby come December and I am also thrilled about where the Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper brand is headed. In addition, it is likely that you will still see Studio Calico and I collaborating occasionally and continuing to cross-promote as we both want nothing but success for each other.

Over the years I have taught many online classes in the Studio Calico classroom (including 2 rounds of  Happy Little Moments and 25 Days) and have enjoyed getting to know the students on a closer level through those workshops. Teaching is always a favorite of mine and I love the chance to inspire others while also pushing myself to grow and try new things as well! I have taught the December Daily class at SC the past two years and am sad that I won't be able to teach it this year. I will definitely be taking lots of photos and documenting the season, as always, but I will also be recovering and enjoying time with my family and new baby. My December Daily album will have to wait until January (or later) and I will look forward to seeing all of your creations for inspiration!!

I had fun looking back through all of the classes I have taught at SC and put together a collage of my favorite snippits from some of the workshops!

    I never knew who was the photographer of all the kits and I’ve always thought to myself that that would be a lovely job. I’ve also thought that the photographer was amazing – making all those pretty layouts of items. Maggie this is such a lovely, sweet, insightful blog post. Thank you for being so open and honest about everything. You will certainly be missed because you are dearly loved. I think you are an amazing photographer, designer, artist, teacher AND MOST IMPORTANTLY MOM. I am so happy for you and your family as you welcome precious #6. If you want a nanny – I volunteer – your kids are amazing! I hope that as you move forward you have no regrets only happiness knowing that you are right where God wants you! God has big things inshore for you to teach you, grow you and work in you. I hope you know how much you are loved, appreciated and respected! I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for you, your family, Crape Paper and Studio Calico. Thank you for your dedication, love, inspiration, kindness, honesty, openness and for just being you. Love!

    What should I say….I started scrapbooking a year ago and now I just feel arrived in this world, knowing the proper vocabulary, the brands and the designers I favor. You are one of them and I hope that even with your 6 children you will find time to share some of you work with us. And I can’t say how surprised I am reading about six children and knowing the amount of creative works you show. It’s amazing how you could manage all this.
    I wish you all the best with you children, your husband and future projects! Thank you for all the inspiration.

    Literally tearing up way up here in Canada! It was you who most inspired me to start scrapbooking again, a few years ago. You who inspired me to join Studio Calico and check in on the gallery. You who inspired me to become more knowledgable in photography so I can capture some sweet shots of my baby girls, loved taking your online photography course 2 years ago. Honestly and turkey love your layouts and it’s your fault I over spend in the reveals every month LOL! I am so excited for you to be welcoming another baby, and at the same time wonder how you do it all 🙂 go enjoy some down time, baby snuggles and being a mommy 🙂 I hope you still share some scrapbooking inspiration from time to time 🙂 congratulations on this new chapter for you. … I would love a sub to the scrapbook kit, but now I won’t know what to do with them 😉
