2019 Anniversary BlogHop Graphic

Good morning and welcome to Day 2 of our 5th-anniversary blog hop.

Five years seems to have gone by in a blur! But what an incredible journey it has been! To all our fans and supporters, thank you for loving Altenew, we wouldn't have made it this far without your continued support and encouragement! We appreciate you very much and hope to continue to inspire you for many years to come!

This is a good opportunity to give a shout-out to the amazing people who keep the Altenew ship sailing.

The ladies behind Altenew: Lydia, our Creative Ambassador and oh-so-talented designer and card-maker. Jen, co-founder and VP of Product Development (a.k.a. the one who gives the final stamp of APPROVAL on every product). Nicole, our Operations Director who does so much to keep the wheels running, I couldn't even begin to list them! Next is myself (the other co-founder), and May, our Marketing Director who introduces herself as the a-May-zing May, and rightfully so! We love her incredible work ethic and her constant thirst for learning and improving herself.

This is us with our fearless leader Nabil (and our daughter Fatimah who sneaks up in every picture):

Nabil has supported Altenew since Day 1, and we couldn't have asked for a better leader!

Last but not least, I would like to give a special shout-out to our dedicated team members who are working tirelessly behind the scenes. Thank you Karen, Jho, Irick, Aurum, Zinia, and Moamen for the late nights and for being part of the Altenew family.

Happy Anniversary! Your products are always nice and I love all the flowers. It amazes me when I think about a person or a couple people are running most of the stamp companies not big companies for the most part. Obviously it takes more than 1 or 2 people but it is still amazing. Keep up the great work!
