FAREWELL & WELCOME TO A NEW BBTB SITE

Hello everyone.....and HAPPY NEW YEAR'S to you all....
As you read from the title of this post, I have a bit of sad news...effective today, I will no longer be running the BBTB Cricut Challenge site...GOODNESS, that was very HARD to type...I believe the BBTB was the very first Cricut challenge site to start up..gosh I remember when I use to participate over on the Cricut Message board 24/7..couldn't get enough of that site and then I announced that I wanted to start a challenge site strictly for those that loved using their little BUGS....and the rest is history.....The BBTB first started back in June of 2007 and it has been the most rewarding, amazing and funniest thing that I can ever remember starting up...I have met so many wonderful people, that to this day we have become a little family and I love them all so much.. many of them have been with the BBTB since it first started....talk about building relationships, it doesn't get any better then that and since we have become a little family, of course family sticks together through the good and bad..(smile)...but as with all things, even fun adventures in our lives must come to an end....

As many of you know, I am the Owner of The Cutting Cafe, and have decided to dedicate most of my time to the online store plus maybe take on a few card challenges here and there online...So I am not totally disappearing..you all know where to find me..(smile)

I had first thought that I was going to totally end the BBTB and then I started thinking about how all of our FABULOUS readers look forward to the weekly Cricut challenges for inspiration and thought...hum, maybe I can get one of the talented BBTB designers to take it over...So I was totally excited to have Heather Binnie take on the challenge...and she came up with the new title:
BBTB2
Wow, how excited I was that she thought of that...it really really made me feel awesome inside to know the BBTB with continue on with the new site being called BBTB2..I even started daydreaming that this could literally go on forever...BBTB3, BBTB4...etc...(smile)
Anyways, I would like to thank Heather for taking on this new adventure and for all of the wonderful designers who fully support her..without them, there just wouldn't be a team at all, BUT most of all, I would like to thank each and every one of our amazing readers, you all are FABULOUS and we thank you for all of your support...
SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO...
PLEASE CLICK HERE

Oh Regina...how sad this is. But we all are so blessed that you allowed the BBTB site to forge onward with one of the designers at the tow with the new BBTB2. We each are so blessed to have spent these years with you. My first challenge as a designer for BBTB was October 2007 and I have relished every single challenge since.
You are awesome, so wonderfully talented, and of course I am absolutely blessed to be on your Cutting Cafe team so you are not out of my sight.

Oh how shocked to hear your news just as I was getting going with your BBTB challenges. I would have been devestated for the challenges not to continue so what a lovely idea to start a new challenge site BBTB2 for all us Cricut addicts!

I wish you well with your continuing adventures and will continue to look at The Cutting Cafe for true inspiration....my hubby bought me a Pazzles for Christmas!

Best of luck.

I thought it was a new secret challenge or a awesome contest, not that you were stepping down... that's sad. I have loved your blog, and I guess I will have to "meet" Heather, and get to know her too.... I will miss you Regina... My son's favorite book and my favorite project was inspired by your site.

taling about "new" stuff..the new trend in business these days is business process automation..the good thing about this is that it automates the process which is better executed by computers than by humans, thus generating more accurate results
