As we move into fall, winter, and the holidays I have been thinking about the busyness to come but making sure I stay grateful for the opportunities before me. I am very thankful for the fun and friends I have made through my crafting, especially my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who are always there to share creating ideas and laughs.
From November 3 – 11 I spent time with my fellow demonstrators in Orlando, Florida. Stampin’ Up! was celebrating their 30th Anniversary with a big celebration from November 8 – 10 so you can look forward to some new ideas coming your way.
Thanks to friendships made through Stampin’ Up! I celebrated my birthday (November 4) with two friends, Lisa Wellman and Mary Haugen, at all four Disney Parks. They have agreed to make my birthday the 4-Park Challenge day. Our goal was to have fun, enjoy life, and be kids for a day. Believe me, we accomplished our mission – I have the pictures to prove it! Here’s just a sample.
My reflections in this post made me think about a keynote delivered on January 31, 2015 at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Convention in Orlando by Jason Wright. He discusses the long lost art of handwritten letters and cards. I know the video (link below) is long (just under an hour) but it so worth the time.
I have now been inspired to start a Make A Card, Send A Card program. You might be surprised that I have amassed a vast quantity of unsent cards – sometimes because I am too fond of the creations to part with them and sometimes I simply like creating and make way too many!!
If you would like to receive a special unsent card, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your information (name and address) and I would be happy to send you one!
