Late Night Thoughts

As I sit to write this blog post I am thinking about all the things I need to complete before my trip to convention. Yes, I signed up and I am excited already. I know, I know, Convention is not until August. I have been able to sign-up for a specialized swap or two so when I return I will have many new things for my great customers.

I am in the process of updating my events calendar so please check back.

Have a blessed day!

Sunday Reflection


I received an email this past week from Tana Conley (Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator
Springfield, OH) that contained great words of wisdom I thought I would share.

I can be whatever I want to be

There is inside of me All of the potential To be whatever I want to be….

All of the energy to Do whatever I want To do.

I will imagine myself as I would like to be Doing what I want to do.

And each day, Take one step Toward my dream.

And though at times it May seem too difficult To continue, I will hold onto my dream.

One morning I will Awake to find That I am the person I dreamed of…

Doing what I wanted to do Simply because I had The courage to believe In my potential
And to hold on to my dream
