Great News To Share!!

Hi Everyone;

Just wanted to pop in for a quick moment to share the news that I have been asked to join the Doodle Pantry Design Team. I was floored when Laurie Wilson asked me to join her team because her digital images are totally stunning and the work of her team is outstanding. So I was humbled to say the least when she asked me to join her after Clear Dollar & Clearly Digi Stamp store closed. 

I will be joining this phenomenal group of ladies.

Clearly Digi Stamps Blog Hop

 This time of  year is always a time to refocus, and start over again, start fresh.  I have been trying to do just that!!  My goal is to get all my scrappy supplies organized and to set up a small area of my house to use as a creative room. So my friend and I have been going through all of my stuff and going on Kijiji, finding some greatly priced items to help me organize and stay within my budget. My area is almost completed and I will share some pics of the progress later.

   Life here really has been busy and now homeschooling is back in session. Plus, I have been taking care of my dh who isn't feeling so well and now I have a part-time job.  So yes, I have been busy and haven't posted in a while.  And it looks like some of you may have stopped following because of it!! I am disappointed to see you go, but family life comes first and blogging second.  I had hoped that those who follow would understand that, but it doesn't always appear that way and that makes me sad. So I wish you nothing but the best in your crafting endeavors as you find other blogs that provide you with more inspiration and crafting education. Take good care of yourself. May each crafting moment be filled with loads of laughter and fun. 

Now on to today's blog hop for Clearly  Digi Stamps!!  Most of you may not know this yet, but the owner of Clear Dollar Stamps/Clearly Digi Stamps as decided to close her store. You can read all about it here. It is with some sadness that I share this news, but I know that Lori  is one who follows her heart, but more so follows the Lord's leading in her life. Right now she feels that He is leading her in a new direction has she homeschools her children and explores some other exciting areas. I am so honored to have been a part of this team and have been blessed with so many wholesome/christian digital images to use in my paper-crafts . I respect her decision and I am inspired by her obedience to God's leading in her life. This month's creations will be cards that will be sent to Lori to show our gratitude for all her hard work and dedication to both her business & Design Team. 

The store will be opened until the end of the month so make sure to get your CDS digi stamps. From now until the 30th of September all digis and SVG files will be 25% off!  Enjoy!
