Happy Wednesday! Today, I'm going to share a little bit more of the changes that are happening in my life. I have been a Stampin' Up demonstrator for the last ten years. Where did the time go?! During that time, I have loved their stamps, inks, Designer Series Paper, card stock, embellishments, computer software "My Digital Studio" and anything else Stampin' Up you can think of that has come out in the last ten years! However, because of moving and my back injury, it looks like I will not be able to continue with them. At this time, it is not definite, but I am trying to be honest and realistic with all of you.
Instead of looking at this as sad, which it definitely is, I'm trying to look for the good in it. One of those things I have found is exploring other stamp companies. The one I have found that I love the most is Unity Stamp Company. You can find them at www.unitystampco.com. Reading through their stamps ministered to me, as I read the inspirational sentiments and scriptures on them. I have had contact with one of their employees and the owner and both ladies could not have been kinder and sweeter if they had tried! The stamps I have used today for the image and sentiment both come from the "your wings exist" set of four stamps. The title comes from one of the stamps that says, "your wings exist, all you need to do is fly."
I believe that my wings exist and soon, I will be able to fly. Until then, I will feel God's presence through the wind, stamp companies that bless their customers, and wiener dogs.
Now, if you're a Stampin' Up lover, please don't leave. If you look closely at this card, all of the card stock, Designer Series Paper, punches, and ink for the words comes from them. Although I have a stash of non-Stampin' Up products that I will use, I also have a lot of Stampin' Up embellishments and stamps that will still make their way onto my blog. I hope you can still get ideas that you can transfer to the stamps and products you have and that my blog will still be a blessing to you, no matter what products I am using to make crafts.
Frank is still having back problems that are not getting better. He will be going to the doctor with my parents on Thursday because I will not be able to ride in the car that far. Please pray for all of us as he faces a second back surgery!
