In other news, it is with much sadness, that I have to announce the departure of one of our design team members, Wendy Bond. Her job has become increasingly busy, along with taking on school, and being a wife and mother. Her time has become too limited and she is stepping away to concentrate on all the things she has going on in her life right now. We will miss Wendy’s vibrant personality and beautiful projects here at My Favorite Things.
