More Big News!

Have you ever thought about your life and thought "Is this REALLY happening" because it seems too good to be true? That is where I am right now. I was thinking back to when I first started this blog. I didn't really have an interest in starting a blog, but my husband kept urging me to do it. I didn't know why anyone would want to read "my" blog. My husband said "who cares if anyone reads it. . .it will give you motivation to stamp and something that you do for YOU." I am SO glad I took his advice, because he was right! (Thanks, Honey!!!!) It gave me a motivation to stamp every day and have something to share. The best part about it (that I never anticipated) was all of the WONDERFUL people I would meet through this venture! I have formed so many friendships that I truly value. I don't think you all realize how much your daily comments, emails and even visits make my every day! You motivate me to create and share. Because of you, I ask myself "is this really happening to ME?" One of the first people I "met" when starting this blog was Julee Tilman, of Poetic Artistry. I visited her blog faithfully (I was in awe of her talent and gorgeous projects that she posted daily), and when I finally decided to take the plunge, I emailed her to ask her a few questions about starting a blog. She was such a sweetheart and answered every question. She visited my blog and commented every day. She has no idea how much it meant to me that she showed THAT kind of support. I mean, she had her own successful blog and created the most amazing things! The fact that she took time to visit my blog just blew me away. As some of you know, Julee started her own stamp company, Verve Visual. I was so HAPPY and EXCITED for her in her new venture and couldn't wait to get each stamp set that she designed! I just LOVE them all! Needless to say, I was extremely flattered and completely honored when Julee asked me to join her Verve Visual Design Team! It is just a dream come true! I am so excited to be a part of her already fabulous team! If you've never visited Verve Visual, you have to check out Julee's wonderful stamp sets and the gorgeous samples by the Design Team in the gallery! In fact, today is Verve Visual's newest release! Wait until you see the Winter Wonder and Seasonal Circles stamp sets! You won't believe the price! Go check it out! And THANK YOU, for letting me share my wonderful news with you! HUGS!

Mandey Koehler said...

Way to go!! I love to see what new ideas you come up with, I just wish I was more like you and stamped everyday, but without a room to stamp in I use the dining room table and the husband, being the sweetheart he is will never say anything about the mess, but I feel guilty making such a mess. I am hoping to get a little more into it, within the next few months. Thanks for the inspiration!
