Is Anyone There?

april blog

     I feel like one of the Whos in Dr. Seuss’ "Horton Hears a Who"; “Is anyone there?”, “Where did she go?”, “I haven’t seen a blog post since last year!” Now I may be the only one thinking this in the very large world of stamping blogs and yet I feel the need to make my announcement to the world – "I am still here! I am still here!”.

     I’m saying good bye to the business of SU and saying hello to the hobby of stamping. God knows it has been long overdue. He has been patient as I’ve gone back and forth like the waves in my decision. I admire people who can multitask and realize that I am not one of them and it is time to stop trying to make myself into one. I liken it to trying to stuff my size 10 feet into size 6 shoes; for me, it just won’t work.

     With my seniority I'm finding contentment in how God made me and where he has placed me in this world. I will continue to focus on the 5 He has entrusted to me and add all the rest of my interests and hobbies as time allows.

     I plan to continue my blog with more frequent posts than once a year.  I also hope to hold classes in the future, on a local basis.  I love to teach stamping and paper crafting.

     Thank you for the years of encouragement with your comments, the friendships we've shared, and the online orders that kept my business going. I hope you will stop back when there are new projects and please, keep in touch with your comments and questions.


God Bless,

Please Martha - keep sharing your God given talents with us.
We've missed you.

Thank you all for your kind comments! I will still be a SU demonstrator as long as I can keep my minimums. I will just not be actively pursuing a business in SU. Hope that makes sense!
