the big announcement...

I wish that my big announcement was that we had finalized our adoption of our youngest daughter but unfortunately not yet and I don't even know when it will happen. So keep praying.

Now for the big news...

I have been chosen to be a part of the Elzybell design team. This team is amazing! It is full of some of the Rock Stars of the stamping world. I can barely believe I get to be a part of it. And my friend Angel is on the team too! Elzybell has some absolutely adorable images and I am really looking forward to the arrival of my package of goodies which will be winging its way across the pond to me.

This will mean some changes for my blog. In the past I have only posted projects that use only Stampin' Up! current products. Now before those of you that only visit my blog for those projects give up on my competely, I will continue to post projects of that nature BUT I will also be posting projects now using other products for my commitment to the Elzybell design team. Branching out into design team work was a really hard decision for me to make. I love Stampin' Up! and their products and will continue with them. I think that they are the best out there, period, but I have reached a point in my life where I feel the need to try something new. My youngest child is going off to kindergarten and most of the kiddos that I babysit for are going as well so I think it is time to give some of my dreams a try. And becoming the best I can be is part of that dream.

Now for my customers, don't panic! I am still the demo you know and love. I will still be here for all of your stamping needs. I just have some new toys to play with.
