With Pain Comes Growth and Knowledge

Certain things in life make us grow and learn and for me being a Demostrator has helped me so much. I have learned that there are so many amazing and talented woman who I love dearly whom I would have never meet would it have not been for being part of the Stampin Up family.

I have learned that teaching is something I love to do. I love to be able to help someone come into my class and being so excited to share what they learned w/someone else.

I've learned that a handmade card is worth so much more and is so special and to give one is sharing a piece of yourself.

For anyone that knows me they know how much I have loved being a Stampin Up demo I love to image all I can create... Those sleepless excited nights because I know my SA Sistahs and I would be waiting for that awesome surprise Stampin Up has for us Demos... or waiting to sign up for an event.. there is nothing like it....

Although I love what I do So very much I love my Family even more... and thus this brings me to having to do something that might hurt a bit now but I know its our Lord's will because I have learned from what I have gone through in my life that everything happens for a reason...

I have decided to become a hobby demo. I will try to keep up with my qtr. sales but if not I will let it go...

My Stampin Up online store will be open until March 15th and then it will close. For my current customers I can not say what you mean to me! Of course you can email me and I will be more then happy to place your order for you and again can not say Thank you enough for not only your business but your friendships.

I also want to thank the few of you that stop by here and peek at what I might have been up to...

Like my title of my post says W/pain comes growth and knowledge and my faith will help my family and myself through what we have to because our Lord is with us. I know just as before he will walk us into where we need to be.

God Bless you and as always thank you for stopping by....

Monday Daily (Share) Challenge

Hello All. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I thought I would stop by and share one of the cards we made Friday night in my Vintage Just Because and Thank you class.

Everyone loved this card because some learned how to do faux-tearing technique which is really fun to do.

Isn't this card so much fun! The gals had the giggles when I showed them how easy and fun it is. I am busy getting ready for my Free Library class I will be teaching this Wednesday. It's sure to be a blast!

Also I am working on getting things ready for my Downline appreciation lunch for the 13th. I would love for you to join us. Maybe some of you liveout of state and are saying but Ellie how could I be there! Well guess what you still can! Just ask me how and you'll be part of our Downline appreciation lunch fun. I can even have a cupcake delivered to you from my fav. place!!! (that's our Group Mascot LOL). I am really looking forward to a wonderful afternoon with the Conga Gals.. :)

Well I think I did enough rambling for today! As always thank you so much for stopping by!
