Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful for Mother's Day!
Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day, a Mix!

Stampin' Up! No Cards to Share Today!

Hey there! You read the title right,  no card today, but I want to share with you a new blogging schedule starting today. Honestly, I've realized I need to be a more gentle on  myself. For the past several years I've held myself to a rigid  schedule of blogging every day. With the exception of Sunday Swap Days I only share my original work. Original creations will continue, just the schedule of blogging is changing.

Creating every day, then photographing, editing, watermarking, writing a tutorial, and the blog post, can be exhausting. Some nights I've been falling asleep while my fingers are typing! God has been whispering in my heart that I needed to make some changes, but I didn't know what to change. I've been praying for guidance and He answered. I don't ever want to resist the Lord's direction.

I'm still doing workshops for my stamping friends and classes in my home. None of that will change, only my blogging schedule.

For now, I will share my creations on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and continue Sunday Swap Days. I don't know how long I will continue this schedule, but rest assured I am not quitting paper crafting!

I love to stamp and I love my job as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I love my customers (stamping friends, really!) and I love the girls on my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers.

I love you, my blog readers. I hope you will understand why I need to make this change and will check back with me regularly.  I appreciate your willingness to come by my little piece of the blogging world to see what I have to share.

Any time you have a question or need help with something, please don't hesitate to comment here, send me an email, or text.

Stampin' Up! Online Shopping:

I appreciate your business that helps keep me financially solvent so I can continue to create with new and fun Stampin' Up! products. The new Annual Catalog starts June 1st. I'm going with several of my team to Charlotte, NC in April for a fun Sneak Peek weekend hosted by Stampin' Up!

This blog post has ended up much longer than I intended, but I hope I've shared a little bit of my heart with you.

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
