I am going into hiding for a few days....

I wanted to keep my Stamping Family posted on the happenings around here. I will be going into hiding for a few days, yesterday my oldest brother sadly passed away after his courageous battle with Lung Cancer. I miss him desperately already but I know he is so much better now in the arms of Jesus. 
My brother was funny, and an amazing person. The last few months he and I grew closer together, we became friends and not just brother and sister. He was taken to soon in our eyes but I know it was God's perfect timing. My family is dealing as best they can, my parents, and my two other brothers are taking it all one day at a time. My brother kept saying till the end that he wanted to do something great for God, and tell all the great things that God has done...and I hope with the Lords help I will be able to share that at his service on Friday, and I hope to post it on here to share with you as well. 

This baby sister is heart broken and so badly missing him, it will take some time for this heart to heal. So I will breaking from the blog this week to spend time healing with my kids and family. I hope you understand and I hope that you will keep us in your prayers, we need them. We know God is faithful even in the hardest times God is so good. "In everything give thanks." I am thankful for even the chance to have had this man in my life and to have called him my brother. 

"God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away." Revelation 21:4

Baby Letters

I have been working on some letters for a great friend of mine who is going to welcome a new baby girl to their family in a few weeks! I used stampin up products to decorate letters I got at the craft store! 
I used the new flower die cuts out of the Occasions Mini

And a Close up of the sweet flowers

I curled my flowers by using the stylus that came with the new simply scored tool and rubbed the edges of my flowers. 

Want to hear something exciting?
Coming in March a diagonal scoring plate for the simply scored tool!

My craft project this week

 So I thought I would show you what I have been working on this week. I have not been doing much stamping because addie needed this...
They do drive in movie night at Awana's every January and the kids have to make a car to sit in...Lets just say this has a way of challenging my creative abilities.

Side View...

My Princess in her rainbow racer....and if you notice the flower on her steering wheel...yes I have to throw some Stampin Up in there!

Happy Stamping!

Its never to late...

16 Days into the New Year and I have yet to sit down and write out my goals for the year, or plan what I want to do. Part of me thinks that I have missed the ball since this is something I should have done 16 days ago. After last year I become a goal setter instead of one who makes resolutions that I NEVER keep. I certainly don't want to look back on another year and wonder what I have done and not be able to remember what I have accomplished. I want to be able to look back at the end of the year and say that I did what God wanted and that I took every open door that he provided for me. While I know this post is 16 days past due, its never to late. 

I encouraged my downline to sit down and make goals for themselves this year, whether big or small these goals are something that they should want to achieve and know that they can achieve in their stampin up business. Look at where they want to take their business, where do they see their business at the end of the year. I encourage them to focus on a Quarter at a time and think of classes, sales, customers, and recruiting. Each of these factors play and important part into your Stampin Up business. My second year with stampin Up I set these same goals for myself and far surpassed my own expectations. If you are a demonstrator I encourage you to do the same. Even in your day to day if you are not a demonstrator I encourage you to set goals for yourself and for your family. 

Maybe one of your goals this year is to join Stampin Up and become a demonstrator...start of your year by checking that off your goals list, join stampin up during Sale-a-bration January 24th-March 31st and get your starter kit $50 off plus a free pack of paper every month for the rest of the year! Stampin Up can help make your goals a reality. Have questions about being a demonstrator? Want to know more about it? email me I am here to answer any questions! 

Set your goals, keep them where you can see them every day, and remember nothing is impossible!
