First, I want to thank all of you for all your encouragement and support over the last three years. I have so appreciated your prayers, kind emails, and comments. After giving it much consideration over the last year, I have decided to discontinue my Stampin Up Demonstratorship, selling tutorials, and Storage Unit businesses. I have sold out of all my storage units except I have three (update: all sold) Ultimates Punch Storage Units left for sale. Once those are gone, I will no longer be selling them. Soon, I will remove my website, Stampin Up website and YouTube channel from the internet. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for being a part of my life these last three years!
Sorry it has been so long since I did a post. Just been really busy, helping my mom. She is planning to move to North Mississippi from Arkansas to be closer to me. We have been looking at houses and trying to sell hers. She made an offer on a house and should hear back today whether or not she will get the house. I will be busy for the next few weeks helping her so I may be missing in action for a while.
Here are three cute punch art characters for your Easter projects. I used 4 Scallop Envelopes for the baskets in the bunny project previously posted. Thank you all for you prayers and patience with me while I took some time off. Have a happy Easter!
Finally I am getting back into papercrafting! Until I sat down today I didn't realize how much I missed doing it! I am going to make these for my grandkids and put a candy bouquet in the basket. I will update the photo once I get the candy in it. I will do more so I plan to do a tutorial of this project this week.
I finally found a use for my Stampin Up fabric! I don't sew but thought this was a fun idea. I have two daughters and a husband all in medical field so I am selling these like hotcakes! I used a button maker and glued them onto the bottle caps, then on to the badge reel. I added some charms and beads to give a little extra bling, we can always use extra bling!
Thank you all for being so patient with me, while I have been re-grouping. I have to admit I am really struggling and have been since Kathy died. I have never dealt with this type of grief before and it has really been hard. Then I came so close to losing my mom, that was just too much for me to cope with. There have been other very difficult things that have happened as well. 2012 was one of the toughest years of my life. I know many of you have been praying for me and have sent me such encouraging emails. I believe God nudged you to write me when I most needed it. I can't tell you how many times while sitting at the hosptial or here at home caring for my mom, or during my time of grief, I would get a email and it gave me hope. It was like God reminding me, there was hope even in the midst of all that didn't make sense.
I have thought long and hard about whether or not to continue being Stampin Up Demonstrator and for a while I was leaning toward not doing it anymore. But yesterday, I decided I needed to pick myself up and get to it again. I need to get back some kind of normalcy and I was happiest when I was doing Stampin Up. I even placed an order yesterday and will get some goodies in the mail in a few days. I order from the Spring Catalog and got some Salabration freebies. If that doesn't inspire me I don't know what will!
Please continue to pray for me, because I am really still struggling but I know I have to pick myself up and carry on.
