No river can return to it’s source…

Published by Stephanie under Random Musings

“No river can return to it’s source, yet all rivers must have a beginning.” ~Native American Proverb

As of yesterday I am no longer a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. After almost 10 years, it feels really strange. So much has changed in my life recently…more demands at work and more demands from aging family members means that I haven’t any extra time to run my SU business. It doesn’t look like it will settle down any time soon so I made the decision to let something go. That something was SU. I will always look back fondly at my time as a demo and being part of such an awesome company. I will also have forever friendships with truly beautiful people that I met via Stampin’ Up!

I’m still madly in love with papercrafting so any extra time I can find (probably late at night), you’ll find me playing with all my stamping goodies. I’m really looking forward to expanding my papercrafting horizons and can’t wait to play with all the wonderful products that are out there. Last year I became certified in Copic Markers and am so excited to “get my Copic on”. I will continue to share all the projects I create on my blog.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
