Back from Vacation and Ready for Fun!

Hi and thanks for joining me today.

Here it is the last week of July already! Where has the summer gone? My family spent the last 2 weeks at our family cottage and I had such a great time! Watching my grandkids play in the lake and riding on a tube on the back of our pontoon boat was so much fun. My eldest grand daughter went on the tube by herself for the first time. She is 9 years old and I think she was very brave. She was a little anxious at first but she ended up having a blast! Seeing my grandson’s proud smile after he caught his first fish was awesome too. Each year my grand kids stretch in different ways and I am so proud to see them grow and mature.

Doing something for the first time can be a bit daunting. When I first started stamping in a card making class, I was a bit anxious. I had never stamped before and was concerned that I would make a mistake. My teacher, Bethany, was very patient and explained each step as she demonstrated the technique. I could not believe how much fun I had and even my first cards were something in which to be proud. Yes, I made mistakes but I learned a lot from each mistake. Bethany was a good encourager and that helped a lot! With each card I made I became more confident and now I teach classes!

Sometimes one must just take a chance and try something new to find out whether the something is enjoyable. I like to encourage my students to try new techniques. Sometimes they make mistakes but they always learn something! I love seeing my students get better and better, but if they never took a chance they would never make any progress.

I hope you will take a chance, make mistakes and keep learning something new every day!

Happy Stampin’

I am a retired RN. I am also an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and owner of SunnyLu Card Designs. I love paper-crafts and strive to share this love with others through both businesses. Working with other Stampers in my Stampin' Up business is such a fine thing! I love all my customers both those whom are brand new to stamping or have been stamping for 20+ years! As a result of stamping for a bit, I have a wealth of beautiful, handmade greeting cards and gift card holders for your enjoyment. My hope is that each of you will give the gift of a hand made snail mailed card to a family member, friend or just someone who needs a lift. What a joy to receive something other than bills and junk mail in your mailbox!
