New Year, New Me ... Come along for the ride!

Oh, Friends ...

There is so much to catch up on that I barely know where to start.  So rather than go back to the beginning of my crafty-goodness time, let me start with today:  I am now an Independent Designer for Stampin' Up!, one of the world's greatest and oldest companies for papercrafting and stamping.

It's a brand new world for me, and I'm looking forward to SU's beautiful approach to paper design, colors and omg lovely stamps!  

If you need particulars, I'd be happy to share them with you privately, but for now, let me just say that after 7 years or so with a competitor (Close To My Heart), CTMH Corporate interpreted their rules in a way that caused me to have to make an untenable choice. If I wanted to teach my cardmaking classes freely, I could not be a CTMH Consultant, and I was terminated in October 2018.  

Now it's time to brush off that pain and start anew. Has anyone seen where I put my mojo???!

So for now, let me just say you'll see some straightening up of this blog as I try to reinvigorate this way of communication, and to show you new cards, fun styles, and blossoming creativity.

I'm waiting for my new Stampin' Up! kit to arrive, so in the meantime, I'll post some cards I've made as I come across them. Enjoy life, my friends.... It is much too short to do otherwise.

Good luck Ellen, I joined up yesterday as well, can not wait for the kit, CTMH sounds like they are in a little trouble...their loss :) we are going to have wishes on your new adventure

Good luck... I’ve just gotten back into my craft room from a break and was thinking of joining back with ctmh... if you can pm me I’d be interested to heard what happened.

What a fun way to start the new year! Sorry that you could not stay with CTMH.... sounds like their rules are becoming way too strict! I do love Stampin' mostly all SU videos on YouTube for my inspiration. I did love the CTMH papers years ago, but even though I check every year when a new catty comes out, I'm not thrilled with their papers anymore, or other things.. just not much imagination going on there. Congrats on going with Stampin' Up... .and best of luck for a wonderful and fun 2019! Marilyn
