Well, crafters, the new year is almost here - Since I have turned 35 or so... (smile)... it seems that the days go by so much quicker.
Couple of changes for me, especially with the New Year right around the corner:
2) New 'do!
Many of you already know this, but I decided to take a break from Stampin'Up! at the end of October. As of this month, there will also be a new Lead for the Columbus Ronald McDonald House Charities. I do not yet know who it will be, but this charity is very important. If you have helped out in previous months with me, I hope you will continue to offer your gifts and talents to the new person.
Originally I had planned to wait just the required six months and then sign up under someone different (those are Stampin'Up!'s rules, not mine). However, now that classes are done, and I have a LOT more time, I have found that although I miss the fellowship with my friends when we craft, I can still craft with my friends! Just without having to do the SU! business portion. Therefore, I have reached the decision not to rejoin Stampin'Up! in the near future. SO, although I will not be a demonstrator anytime soon, I will begin to offer card classes again (in a few months). Please know that there may be some contraband in the card classes. :)
Also, because I will no longer be demonstrating, I will be having a garage sale of sorts to sell some of my items that I do not use. If you were a customer, you are still always welcome to contact me with your questions, but if you need product - you will need a new demonstrator. I know several wonderful ladies who could assist you.
Please know that this decision was not reached without much prayer and thought. However, it is the best decision for me at this time. I hope you understand.
and my new hairdo (since I just donated 13 inches to Locks of Love!).
I have had several friends email me, along with one friend posting a comment on the blog, requesting that I put an new picture online with my new 'do. For those of you who actually style your hair, you may understand this. I've had long hair for so long, that most times I just washed, combed, and pulled it back! This stylin' thing is taking me a little bit of time.
Thank goodness I am in Florida visiting my parents right now. AFTER the first of the year - probably closer to the middle of the month, I will post an updated picture. This bein' a girl thing, really takes time. The boyz just don't know how lucky they are - we have hair, make-up, and all the other things. I'm not complaining mind you, I'M the lucky one who was able to carry our son, but I have a larger learning curve than most. Keep that in mind, please!
Ok, I'll be taking a few days break from posting. Hoping to show some more after the first of the year. ALTHOUGH, one of my mom's friends purchased an Ohio State post-it note holder, magnets, and notebook from me here in Florida. I brought them with me. I'll have to take a couple of pictures of those and post them before I give them to him.
If I do not talk with you beforehand, please know that there will be future postings - just after I return from Florida!
I have really enjoyed the friendships I have made while in Stampin'Up! I am confident those will continue...
Happy New Year!
