Items used to create my card -
I'm not a pushy person. So I truly hope that my blog doesn't come off that way. I've always enjoyed sharing my creations here and have been doing so for many years. Over the years I have been with several different companies. Whether as a designer or an illustrator. And I have enjoyed doing all of it. I took a long break from this business because I needed it. My personal life was fine but very busy. By trying to teach, illustrate and design I found it was taking up way too much of my life. So I decided to step away from it. Not for good, but just long enough for me to figure out what "I" wanted to do.
When I quit stamping, it really surprised a lot of people. Including my family. And I sold just about everything I had. Except for the stamps sets that were of my own creations. For obvious reason, I wasn't going to part with them. And you know what? I don't regret it at all.
Some times we need to step back and re-evaluate what is truly important in our lives. And I did that. And it was a good thing.
When I decided to get back into stamping it wasn't something that I just woke up one day and jumped back into. I gave it a lot of thought. And I'm glad I picked Stampin' Up! as the company to help me get back to doing what I loved. I missed it.
So when I post cards on here and links to products by Stampin' Up!, through my online store, it really is just a tool for you. Not because I'm being pushy.
In the past people would often email me, and I mean "often", asking me many questions about what materials I used or where I got them, etc. What markers I used. And so on.
But now that I'm with Stampin' Up! I'm able to have access to a quick and easy way to share the products that I use by either uploading an image or a link to my site. No pressure. I'm not asking anyone to buy anything. I just really like SU! and want to be able to list, in a fast and easy way, what I'm using or any new specials that SU! may be promoting.
I would feel badly if SU! is doing a promotion or has a new stamp set and I didn't take the time to pass that information onto you. Just like a friend would share a wonderful new restuarant she went to. You graciously listen to her excitement and you either chose to go or not to go. But you allow her, because she's your friend, to share the good news. You know?
If this bothers you. I'm so very sorry.
I don't have one of those gorgeous blogs full of beautiful photos of my inspirational home. I don't go to any exotic places or even wander outside my neighborhood to keep you glued to my blog with all of my exciting new adventures. Or beautiful photos. I don't have an expensive camera. It's point and shoot for me. LOL. I don't even have a beautiful craft room for you to envy. (You would laugh at the spot in which I create.)
All I have is me. And SU! now. My home life is pretty uneventful. My family very normal. I do share things about them on Facebook, but even there, not much.
So....I hope my new journey with SU! isn't one that makes you say...
"Oh God...another SU! demo trying to sell me stuff!"
That's not what I'm about.
I'm excited about SU! products and promotions.
So I'm going to take a few moments to share the new stamps....read on or not.
We all have a choice to either move to another blog, stick with Facebook or Twitter, spend time with friends scrapbooking, reading a good book or watching a tv program. I'm here just doing what I love and sharing what I make. That's all....
