It is so hard to believe that MFT is celebrating it’s 8th birthday. It’s been such a magical time, every bit of it. Of course there have been roadblocks and hiccups and downright heart-pounding stressful moments, but those have been far outweighed by all of precious memories and amazing adventures that have been had.
Over the last 8 years lots of changes have taken place. My *warehouse* and *shipping area* went from this:
Emma went from this:
Brianna went from this:
MFT has grown from a home office with no paid employees to 3 office spaces including a full retail store and classroom, a warehouse, and a product assembly space with 16 employees.
From this: (This is literally the birthplace of MFT. The loft in our previous house and one pegboard section which housed all of our products.)
And this: (a sampling of the team)
From a spiral bound catalog featuring 14 stamp sets to a catalog that is over 100 pages. Amazing!
To say I am blessed is a gross understatement. To be grateful seems ridiculously simplistic. I can’t put into words the feelings I have about MFT and the past 8 years. The relationships built with our customers turned friends, and the family that has been created through this company and this hobby makes my heart and life unbelievably full.
Thank YOU. Without the fans of our products and our company none of this would be possible. Thank you from the deepest place in my heart. And it’s my sincere desire you’ll allow MFT the privilege of providing you with fabulous, innovative products and legendary customer service for many decades to come!
