Totally Awesome Tuesday!

Today has been a good day.

First, the weather is so nice. It's about to get cold and rainy again but for  now it is about 70 degrees and sunny. I know, I can't believe it either!!

Today was the long-awaited phone call from the Stampin' Up! guy Nick. Somehow I got chosen to be part of a "Business Developer Program" and they are going to be "advising" me during the next few months to help me figure out my goals and focus my efforts more efficiently on where I want to go and what I want to accomplish. Sounds complicated, right??  It isn't, Nick was a super nice guy and he basically just introduced me to what we will be shooting for in the next few months. There will be phone call meetings with him every 2 weeks that will last between 30 min and an hour and we will concentrate on different things each call. Towards the end of the call we will figure out what I need to be working on and then I will be held accountable for doing certain things that lead me to my goal over the next two weeks. So that when we next talk I will be expected to discuss what I did to reach my goals or why I didn't do it.

I got a great feeling talking to Nick, he is very engaging and wants to help people succeed so it is all good!

After part of our conversation he made note of the fact that it seemed like I got a lot of joy out of serving others. He was SO right in that assessment. First, in my early career as a vet tech and then after nursing school offering "service" in the form of becoming a registered nurse. While I am still a registered nurse, being off work for the time being leaves me at odds in terms of "serving others." This is a great opportunity for me to be able to pursue what I love and share the vehicle for that which is all these groovy Stampin' Up! products!!

Who doesn't love them? Come on.

Look what came today from UPS:
And I'm busy as a bee turning it into this:
So pretty, right??  And after that - well let's just say that I HOPE I'm done tonight; if not I will finish up tomorrow and then mail them all out priority on Thursday first thing in the morning. I didn't want anyone to get theirs first just to be fair to everyone on the Paper Share. As a special "thank you" from me, I've included some card stock that complements the designer series paper. Each person will get between 7-9 pre folded cards in various colors. Enjoy!! And don't forget I want to see your beautiful creations!

I also recorded a goofy video, maybe I should put it here. Since hardly anyone looks here it is safe, right?? No way am I putting it on my YouTube, random people stop in there all the time!! Ok let me see if I can find it.

While it is uploading (if it ever finished uploading lol) I will just tell you that I hear a weird noise from the chickens during my video and react accordingly. Hahah...shows how weird I am but that's ok. You need to know that about me. What is going on in your part of the universe?? Let me know!! It's not all card-making you know. Ok, most of it IS, but still. We all have lives... :)



  1. Bummer, it doesn't look like that video uploaded correctly. I'll try to fix it but I'm not sure I can send from my photo booth app right to here. Please be patient with my crooked learning curve lol!
